In Jonathan Mestel's article on p.46 there are a couple of moves missing in the solution to No.10 (Rusinek):

After 5.a8B! the continuation should read as follows: And now 5.Nd5 is stalemate, so 5.Ne5 6.Kb8 Nc6+ 7.Kc8 Bf1 and again White can't play 8.b8=Q because 8.Ba6+ 9.Qb7 Ne4 10.Qxa6 Nd6#. 8.b8=N loses on material after 8.Ne7+ 9.Kb7 Bg2+ 10.Ka7 (10.Nc6 Bxc6+ 11.Ka7 Bd7) 10.Nc8+ 11.Ka6 Bxa8. This just leaves 8.b8=R!! Ba6+ 9.Rb7 and Black runs out of ideas.
