Liddell Jokes

“Lewis Carroll and Alice Play Call Our Bluff” by Alan Lance Andersen and Rebecca Ann Edwards appears in the July issue of Games Magazine, which will be on newsstands around May 15th. This nicely illustrated piece is a feature article/puzzle in which the reader tries to solve the puzzle in the text—to determine which of the many tidbits of Alice history are true and which the authors made up—and these are based on, to quote Mr. Andersen, “quirky trivia” about Lewis Carroll and Alice Liddell. [Though some Carrollians might have one or two quibbles with the information in the article.]
