  fredthebear: Here's a queen sacrifice for a brief windmill into checkmate!!

This is a pseudo-Vukovic Mate. (FTB has probably misspelled author Vladimir Vukovic's name elsewhere.) Normally, the rook is protected by a pawn instead of the bishop. The mated king is typically in front of the rook on the 7th, cut-off by the knight on the 6th but here the knight strikes the final blow.

  fredthebear: Have a look-see at Landau's Mate, which is similar. S Landau vs H J van den Heuvel, 1933
