Raymond Merrill Smullyan (born May 25, 1919) is an American mathematician, concert pianist, logician, philosopher, and magician.
Born in Far Rockaway, New York, his first career (like Persi Diaconis a generation later) was stage magic. He then earned a BSc from the University of Chicago in 1955 and his Ph.D. from the Princeton University in 1959. He is one of many outstanding logicians to have studied under Alonzo Church.
Smullyan is the author of many books on recreational mathematics, recreational logic, etc. Most notably, one is titled What Is the Name of This Book?.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In this devilishly fun new puzzle book, Raymond Smullyan, the grand master of the logic puzzle, lends a helpinghand to Scheherazade from the Arabian Nights. Fresh from the perils of the original thousand-and-one-nights, she is once again in danger of losing her head at dawn. Thinking quickly, she manages to stay her execution each evening by posing an ingenious brainteaser that keeps the king -- and the reader -- guessing until the next night. In all, The Riddle of Scheherazade includes 225 puzzles, some wonderful old brainteasers, and many wickedly original new ones. There are logic tricks and number games, true/false paradoxes, puzzles about puzzles, and much more, including an excursion into an amusing new field Smullyan calls coercive logic, in which to answer truthfully the puzzler must actually change his behavior. Enough mind-bending fun for another thousand-and-one-nights. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780156006064
