E – 4 Field of Dreams came from W.P. Kinsella’s Shoeless Joe.

G – 2 Blade Runner was the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.
H – 6 John W. Campbell’s Who Goes There? set in Antarctica became The Thing.
I – 10 Insomnia inspired Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club.

Those who gave answers to the quiz got all of them correct.
