The OF Blog: So I participated in a group interview of Scott Bakker recently

So I participated in a group interview of Scott Bakker recently

It just went live at Pat's blog.  Five of the questions I asked.  Can you identify which ones those are from the ones that Adam and Pat wrote?

I feel I have to wait with reading that interview until I finish The White-Luck Warrior, which I'm about to start today or tomorrow.
I needed to re-read The Judging Eye first, to get up to speed about all the little subtleties and clues Bakker is so fond of sprinkling his books with.

1. The Don Quixote question

#1, #3, #4 are correct; not the other two.

I think you asked the "literary touchstones" question. Why? Because you've been reading a lot of McCarthy lately. I finished the WLW recently, and am reading Blood Meridian right now. On many an occasion I've caught myself thinking "damn if WLW didn't borrow a lot from this novel."

Nope, not my question either. One is something you'd likely never expect me to ask, based on my stated preferences and the other deals with non-fantasy matters.
