Sam Loyd's Cyclopedia of 5,000 Puzzles Tricks & Conundrums with
Answers has been reprinted today !!!!

http://www.amazon.com/Cyclopedia-Puz...dp/0923891781/

Originally published in 1914, many of the individual puzzles in this
book have been reprinted and republished many times, but this is the
first time the complete 384 page book with ALL of the diagrams and
drawings has been reprinted.

Sanitized versions of some of these puzzles have been published
especially by Martin Gardner, the mathematical games columnist for
Scientific American, but he removed the off-color remarks and
drawings.

THE PUZZLE KING

"SAM LOYD AND HIS CHESS PROBLEMS by A.C. White (Dover books) features
744brainteasers that often start with an outrageous key move. Loyd was
also fascinated by magic, ventriloquism and conjuring."

Also see Evans On Chess

And False Alarm for how Loyd talked Golmay into resigning a position
that could have been saved!

http://wcn.tentonhammer.com/modules....rder=0&thold=0

"At 26, Loyd already was world famous for composing great problems. In
this position he announced mate-in-8 and explained the method to
Golmayo. Out of respect for Loyd's reputation, his hapless opponent
threw in the towel."
