The Crossword Connoisseur's Compendium
Sharpen that pencil, crossworders: You've got work to do! This hefty volume contains more than 200 original puzzles, including head-scratchers concocted by such lauded crossword creators as Will Shortz, Cathy Allis, Mike Shenk, Emily Cox and Henry Rathvon, and more. While there are plenty of traditional puzzles here to keep you busy, you'll also find nontraditional shapes and styles: cube- and hexagon-shaped puzzles, experimental themes that require wacky answers, even one monster crossword with nearly 400 clues. Never fear, you'll find the puzzles' solutions at the back of the book should you feel the need to confirm your genius!
