"Dark spruce forest frowned on either side of the frozen waterway. The trees had been stripped by a recent wind of their white covering of frost, and they seemed to lean toward each other, black and ominous, in the fading light. A vast silence reigned over the land. The land itself was a desolation, lifeless, without movement, so lone and cold that the spirit of it was not even that of sadness. There was a hint in it of laughter, but of a laughter more terrible than any sadness — a laughter that was mirthless as the smile of the Sphinx, a laughter cold as the frost and partaking of the grimness of infallibility. It was the masterful and incommunicable wisdom of eternity laughing at the futility of life and the effort of life. It was the Wild, the savage, frozen-hearted Northland Wild."

The opening paragraph of which book?

Wow - good job it wasn't my million pound question on WWTBAM because I was absolutely certain that was the correct answer. Is it White Fang then - it's the only other Jack London book I know...

Which author was credited with founding "gonzo journalism" in 1970, a style of writing where the writer and their experiences and emotions are the central part of the story. He committed suicide ten years ago. Two of his works have been made into films, both starring Johnny Depp as the author.

Second guess takes it, Toulouse-Lautrec it is.

This painting is the less famous of two early 19th century paintings whose titles are simply a date and a place. What is the place and who is the artist?

Goya? I'll try the third of may 1808, but think that's another one.
