If you can solve the riddle and would like to win an inscribed copy of my latest book, To Cut a Short Story, vol. II: 88 Little Stories, please send your solution to me via the contact page, together with your name, address (worldwide) and the name you would like the book to be dedicated to. Do NOT post your answer in the comments! The senders of the correct solution will be put into a ‘hat’ and randomly drawn to give one winner.

The competition will remain open until the end of February 2019 (Midnight GMT (UTC)

The winner will be announced here shortly thereafter.

 

NOTE: I received NO correct solutions before the deadline, so I am extending the competition until the end of March. The FIRST correct solution received will win the prize and terminate the competition. I’ll announce it here as soon as possible, should I receive a correct solution before the new deadline.
