Updating the entrants list is always nice assurance for players that their answers have been received.

So after submitting my entry, I read an article which mentioned FAANG. Doesn't always pay to enter these things too early. It did confirm that one of my guesses was correct, however.

In fifth grade, I remember a female classmate who was a big fan of a particular music artist becoming very excited upon an incidental mention of the Fall of the House of Usher.

I'm sure she would have been very disappointed.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Oh, no! I got Poe-dunked!
I always considered Pym a long short story or a novella rather than a full-on novel, so I thought I could squeak by. Oh, well.
See y'all at the finish line with a pitcher of margaritas!

Hence my 0.150 career lit percentage in LL...Also didn't really matter as I got at least one other answer incorrect.
