Try this: place eight queens on a regular chess board so that none can attack any others (in other words, so that no vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line holds more than one queen). Can you do it? Tim Dedopulos, author of conundrum collections like The Great Houdini's Puzzle Vault and The Sherlock Holmes Puzzle Collection, assembles a hundred fiendish brainteasers here that have puzzled people for ages. You'll find a Numberlink and a rope around the earth, a Magic Square Matrix and Schrödinger's cat in a box, and a dinner party full of fathers-in-law's brothers and brothers-in-law's fathers.
