    Who cares?

    The cover of this book is really disceptive. I mean, really, who CARES who the editors are? Who are the puzzle writers of this book? A friend of mine turned me on to this great book, and I was surprised to see that one of my favorite puzzlers (Terry Stickels), was a HUGE contributor. How could any fans of these authors find this book? How come Frank Longo and Will Shortz get all the attention? C'mon, not everybody likes sudoku and crosswords. It is a GREAT puzzle book!
