While 1039 is paradoxical (WK getting stalemated before mating Black!) 1040 is a beauty with a fore-play.
All three are enjoyable, dear Oliver!

Both 1039 and 1040 are in logical style, yet there’s a subtle difference:

In 1039 the difference between “try”
4…Kb4/Kc4? 5.Qc2?? Kb5 etc.
and solution is genuine fairy – the white King has to be immobilized before the wQ can move.

In 1040 the difference (selfblock at a1) is purely orthodox and of no relation to Circe.

Like the tempo move 1…Bd1 in 1040. Logic of 1039 is nice… self-stalemate by WK to enable WQ move. Nice idea !
