Overview

Two great collections, 144 puzzles in all, will delight and test the skills of any crossword lover!

What makes these crossword puzzles, from New York City's newest newspaper, the best ever? They're carefully edited to get rid of the junk that shows up in crosswords over and over again. Those obscure words that nobody actually uses (like agio, etui, and esne) are kept to an absolute, bare minimum. Instead, the solving pleasure arises from tricky clues and witty puns. Four-fifths of the puzzles have clever and original themes, too, which add to the fun (look at the title for a hint). Plus, solvers will enjoy the wide range of difficulty, which is indicated by the number of stars on top. Those that come from the Monday paper are simple, but the Friday puzzles, especially the themeless "Weekend Warrior" crosswords, are the toughest in America. They will challenge even the best solvers--and inspire newcomers to the world of crosswords to work their way up! A special treat: the answer to the very last puzzle from the original New York Sun, which shut down on January 4, 1950, is printed in Volume 1. At last, you can check your solution!
