Description

Paul Holmes’ second volume of puzzles.

Inspired by the Edinburgh Festival, it is written as an easy-read science fiction story with a twist, each chapter being a separate puzzle, accessible for all the family. Varying from easy puzzles involving numbers and anagrams all the way to one or two real stinkers for which you will need at least Higher or A level Maths and Physics and plenty of time, it can also be read a simple story involving space travel, aliens and unexpected snake bites. There are plenty of shorter puzzles, too.
