Overview

Anyone who regularly tackles challenging crossword puzzles will be familiar with the frustration of unanswered clues blocking the road to completion. Together in one bumper volume, Crossword Lists and Crossword Solver provides the ultimate aid for tracking down those final solutions.

The Lists section contains more than 100,000 words and phrases, listed both alphabetically and by number of letters, under category headings such as Volcanoes, Fungi, Gilbert & Sullivan, Clouds, Cheeses, Mottoes, and Archbishops of Canterbury. As intersecting solutions provide letters of the unanswered clue, locating the correct word or phrase becomes quick and easy.
The lists are backed up with a comprehensive index, which also guides the puzzler to associated tables - e.g. when looking for Film Stars; try Stage and Screen Personalities.

The Solver section contains more than 100,000 potential solutions, including plurals, comparative and superlative adjectives, and inflections of verbs. The list extends to first names, place names, technical terms, compound expressions, abbreviations, and euphemisms.Grouped according to number of letters - up to fifteen - this section is easy to use and suitable for all levels of crossword puzzle. At the end a further 3,000 words are listed by category, along with an index of unusual words.
