ameristralia, you have the correct answer for Trivia #6.
On the Sunday before "Masquerade's" publication, the "Observer" Magazine had an article about the book, including color illustrations of Kit's. As luck would have it, the "Sunday Times" went on strike that week, which meant people who usually bought and read the "Times" went out and purchased the "Observer" instead. This gave "Masquerade" more publicity.
PM me with your choice of prize and address! Congratulations!

TRIVIA QUESTION #9:
When Kit first decided to make a treasure hunt, he did a test run. He purchased an Ordinance Survey Map, and pinpointed identifiable spots on both the map and on the ground. He buried an object, then went out the next day to see if he could find that object again. He could not find the object that he buried. He did this experiment three times, and all three times, he did not find the object. What was the object that he buried?
TRIVIA QUESTION #10 is a RIDDLE:
I am the beginning of eternity, Followed by half a circle, close on by half a square, Through my fourth my fifth is seen, To be the first in every pair. My sixth begins my seventh, The end of time and space, Now put my parts together to see what's taken place.

EXPLANATION of #7...Kit had a Christmas Riddle published in the newspaper which showed his portrait with several creatures circling his face. The first letter of every creature spelled out MERRY CHRISTMAS: mouse, elephant, rabbit, reindeer, yak, cat, hedgehog, rat, iguana, snake, toad, monkey, ant, and snail. But there was also a fish with 6000 Angstroms written on it. It is explained that 6000 Angstroms is the wavelength of light at the point in the spectrum where it becomes red. So the fish was a "red herring".
