Thanks to everyone who submitted replies to Quiz #31 a few weeks ago. Sorting out the answers was more involved than I'd expected, because I received many varied responses, and some of the questions turned out to have multiple correct answers. Also, one of my reference sources (this book, which is good for many things but apparently not dates) led me to a few inaccuracies in the quiz. Sorry, my bad. Taking those factors into account, I was generally lenient in grading the answers, and gave respondents the benefit of the doubt where ambiguities were involved. 

The winner, with 43 out of 45 correct, is Alexandros Konstantinakis-Karmis of Greece. Alexandros is a quiz-answering machine, having also won the last two album cover quizzes on B. Congrats, Alexandros, and stand by to receive your lovely prize package.

My congratulations to Alexandros who is a extremely connoisseur or have a lot of time or all the books. Anyway in each case he deserves a recon about him because all the goods he have. Alexandros Konstantinakis-Karmis is a bit difficult to remember or pronounce. I suggest to call him The Machine. :)
As always I can find something new for me in your post. Many thanks Blake
