73801 Doone is a classical novel written by R. D. Blackmore.
AS*ANY = ALLY + FOR
(i) AS*ANY denotes a year. Which year?
(ii) What significance do the year denoted by ALLY have in American history?
(iii) This legendary boxer, whose nickname is denoted by 93006, was the World Heavyweight Champion who subsequently lost his title to Muhammad Ali. Which boxer?
(iv) 1 ? 2 8 ? ? ? ? 9 ? ? 8 denotes the name of a legendary science fiction author. Which author?
(v) ? 1 2 2 R ? ? ? U 8 8 3 W ? denotes the name of a famous English actress. Which actress?
*** Each question mark denotes a letter, whether same or different.
Google finds Saffron Burrows. I've never heard of her but I'm not much of a TV/movie person.
I've also never heard of Alfred Bester but Wikipedia indicates that must be the right answer.
I was a bit confused by the use of the question marks/letters in parts 4 and 5. I think I'd have expected it to be more like this:
(iv) 1728?? ??9??8
(v) 9122830 ??883?9
