  • You should definitely pick up a book or two by Raymond Smullyan. He's the absolute king of knights-and-knaves puzzles and variations on them: humans who sometimes lie, vampires who lie when it's daylight but tell the truth otherwise, sane and insane versions of all -- e.g., insane knights always tell the truth, but believe every true proposition to be false -- and many others.

    A good place to start would be What is the name of this book? [isbn.nu] or Riddle of Scheherazade [isbn.nu]. I liked the former a lot more. It goes from the puzzles to Goedel's incompleteness theorem in a very fun way.
