    Unquestionably the best crossword book on the market. I wish there were more of them published per year.

    Excellent puzzles. Exceptional layout by Bellato. Superior editing by Samson.

    crosswords

    I have been solving crossword puzzles since I was a teenager. I started with the daily puzzle in the local newspaper. Now I look forward to the Sunday puzzle in the local paper. Size matters.
    The Simon & Schuster Mega Crossword Puzzle Books #3 & 5 have only 100 Sunday size puzzles out of 300 puzzles in the book.
    I doubt that I shall buy any more in this series.
