Recent years have brought a number of his magical books of logic and math puzzles: The Lady or the Tiger (2009)- Satan, Cantor and Infinity (2009)- an original, never-before-published collection, King Arthur in Search of His Dog and Other Curious Puzzles (2010)- and Set Theory and the Continuum Problem (with Melvin Fitting, also reprinted by Dover in 2010).

He seemed somewhat puzzled when I explained that the reason I don't is that I'm a Gemini." "Some people are always critical of vague statements. I tend rather to be critical of precise statements: they are the only ones which can correctly be labeled 'wrong.'" - Raymond Smullyan Critical Acclaim for The Lady or the Tiger: "Another scintillating collection of brilliant problems and paradoxes by the most entertaining logician and set theorist who ever lived." - Martin Gardner
