Type ID Cold Case Files: January 2009

Jared Benson's picture

Anyone up for an impromptu battle of Type ID skills?

I've been digging through our archives, and found these (gasp!) zero-response posts from January 2009 that never got solved. I'm teeing them up for you Type IDers who love a good mystery.

If you solve them, respond on the respective thread and let us know back here if you've closed it out. Can we get them all?

We'll track the results (who solved it, and how fast) and post a scoreboard here as they're solved. The timer starts as of this posting.

Ready.. Set.. Go!

The Ronan Bennett "Zungzwang" cover was solved for me by Jan in another thread back in April. I've just updated my thread although I probably should have done it back then.
