  1. William Faulkner
  2. Chauser
  3. Marquis De Sade
  4. James Joyce
  5. Percy Shelly

Tonight I've got Bill MADDOG here for the music game. I hadn't seen Richard BERGIE for months but he got very sick and left. None of The Regulars were here on this Labour Day weekend. There was a player named TIGER but we realized it couldn't be Joe.

My game so far had gone like this:
TuneUp....3500/5000...5th/16th...I'm in a three way tie for 5th...MATT, THEONE, TIGER,
CHRONC won round.
OnBeat...10250/14000...2nd/16...MADDOG wins round and has 10750...I get 7 right, 1 wrong, 
1 no answer.
JukeBox...15418/20000...1st/15...I win the round.
Triviaoke...22044/28000...1st/16...I win the round.

So the Encore answers come up. Well I can't bookmark any pages with this list of authors. I'll just have to wait for the question.

Question:...The title of Sting's LP "Ten Summoner's Tales" refer to this writer's work:

Well I flip through my Albums book to find Sting but there's no description. I was thinking during this frantic search of the biographical profile I'd seen of Sting on television a few months ago. A lot of detail about his career in The Police and his marriages. Sure lots about his music and things I wasn't interested in like him doing yoga in a loincloth and talking about tantric sex. Well I can't remember if they mentioned any authors but I know 'Ghost In The Machine' and 'Synchronicity' were named after author's phrases or books. I'd rang in '2' before I started flipping through my book. I could imagine him saying the name 'Chauser' in his ex-school teacher voice and thought Faulkner may have been a Police influence. I didn't know either author. The quizwriters wouldn't have '2' as the Encore answer two weeks in a row? Sure, tricky. Too much thinking and I didn't have time to tip off anyone else except I said my choice during my search.

Correct Answer:...2 Chauser

[NTN Extra Fact:...Sting makes allusions to Chauser's "Canterbury Tales" and his own last name "Sumner".]

I'm right and finish with 33066 points. I win and earn 3000+ Players Plus points for meeting the 20000 point standard this week. I finish 15th on the Network Top 20 board and 62nd overall. I didn't catch the bar's ranking but it was very poor.
