Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. You're in the Shades - get out quick! Head towards the huge Tower of Art to reach Unseen University.

Answer: Pratchett's "Sourcery"

Unseen University and the Tower of Art were created by Terry Pratchett and featured in a number of "Discworld" novels. It was the educational establishment for wizards and was situated in the city-state of Ankh-Morpork. The Shades, home to the less reputable members of society, was a dodgy area in the city - best to avoid it if possible.
2. There's treasure in the Lonely Mountain, but first you must pass through Mirkwood forest.

Answer: Tolkien's "The Hobbit"

Bilbo Baggins and company headed to the Lonely Mountain in "The Hobbit" on a quest to find the treasure guarded by the dragon, Smaug. The group, sometimes helped by Gandalf, ventured through a range of terrains to reach the mountain. Mirkwood forest was one of them. If you take a trip through Mirkwood, beware of giant spiders and Wood-elves (they distrust dwarves in particular).
3. Enter London Below to find the Floating Market, Earl's Court, and the Black Friars.

Answer: Gaiman's "Neverwhere"

London Below was uncovered by Neil Gaiman in "Neverwhere". Most of London Below - as its name suggests - consisted of sewers and disused Underground lines. There were also alternate versions of landmarks and places in London Above, such as Night's Bridge, Earl's Court, and the angel Islington.
4. Take a trip down to the dungeons to visit the Slytherin common room, or go through the Fat Lady's portrait to enter Gryffindor Tower.

Answer: Rowling's "The Chamber of Secrets"

Hogwarts was a school for wizards in J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" series. It was a sprawling castle with classrooms, dormitories, and common rooms. The Gryffindor common room was located in Gryffindor Tower and was decorated with red and gold. The Ravenclaw common room was also in a tower.

The Slytherin common room was down in the dungeon and the Hufflepuff common room was next to the kitchen. Don't be surprised if you can't get in each common room. Entrance is usually only granted to members of the respective houses.
5. Go north from King's Landing to reach Winterfell, Castle Black, and the Wall.

Answer: Martin's "A Game of Thrones"

King's Landing was the royal capital of Westeros in George R.R. Martin's "A Game of Thrones". It was a large walled city containing the Red Keep, the seat of the royal court. If you travel north up the Kingsroad, eventually you will reach the castle belonging to the rulers of the north called Winterfell. Further north of Winterfell was Castle Black and the Wall designed to keep out the terrifying creatures beyond.
6. Look out for the lamppost and the wardrobe, and Tumnus's cave will be nearby.

Answer: Lewis's "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe"

Although the lamppost (along with the wardrobe and Mr Tumnus) first appeared in "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", an explanation for a lamppost in a remote part of a forest was not explained until "The Magician's Nephew" was published some years later. Jadis - also known as the White Witch - was holding part of a damaged iron lamppost from London when she was transported to Narnia.

She threw the rod and a new lamppost grew in its place. The English wardrobe was made from the wood of an apple tree that Digory grew from a Narnian apple.
7. Travel up the witcher's Trail (if you can) to reach Kaer Morhen.

Answer: Sapkowski's "Blood of Elves"

Kaer Morhen was a castle in Andrzej Sapkowski's "The Witcher" series. At one time, the castle was used to train young witchers, but by the time of the events in "Blood of Elves", there had been no new recruits for some time. The Trail (which was also known as The Killer) was a path full of obstacles that surrounded the castle and was used for training young witchers. Ciri first met Triss Merigold while running along and falling off it.
8. If you enter the garden of the Queen of Hearts, watch out for flying hedgehogs!

Answer: Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"

Alice visited many peculiar places in Wonderland. One of them was the Queen's garden. When Alice first entered, she saw living playing cards painting the white roses red. After travelling further into the garden, she was instructed by the Queen to play croquet.

But it was croquet with a difference: the mallets were flamingos and the balls were hedgehogs. So if you take a stroll through the garden, get ready to duck.
9. Head west towards Winkie Country, but look out for a wicked witch.

Answer: Baum's "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz"

The yellow brick road and Emerald City were iconic landmarks in "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz", but there was more to the geography of the Land of Oz. Dorothy first landed in the Munchkin Country of the east. She headed down the yellow brick road towards the Emerald City, and then travelled west to Winkie Country where the Wicked Witch of the West was in control.

The Wicked Witch melted during "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz", so visits there should be relatively safe.
10. In order to find the armoured polar bears of Svalbard, you'll need to travel north from Jordan College in Oxford.

Answer: Pullman's "Northern Lights"

Svalbard is a real place in the Arctic Ocean. It's a chain of islands north of Norway. In "Northern Lights", it was the home of the armoured bears like Iorek Byrnison and Iofur Raknison. At the end of "Northern Lights", Lord Asriel opened a hole in the sky that led to a parallel universe, so take care not to pass into another reality by mistake!
