Books

This section of the AgeOfPuzzles.com I'd like to devote to the most prominent puzzle authors, and some selection of their books mostly published in the past years. Authors have their own pages where growing lists of their books are presented. Obviously, it's just a small part of nice, must-have puzzle books, so I plan to add even more great puzzle books in the future. Mostly, these books are available at big book stores all over the World, both virtual and real, such as Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble.

Also, you can visit our special page, Puzzle Book Showroom, where some of our favorite puzzle books presented at our website are collected in the compact form, so that to make them easy and quickly accessible.
