This series continues to provide the most challenging, fresh, and original puzzles on the market. Created by the best contemporary constructors — and edited by top puzzle master John M. Samson — these Thursday to Sunday-size brain breakers offer hours of stimulation for solvers of every level.

About the Author

John M. Samson is an expert crossword puzzle constructor and editor. His crosswords have been published in leading magazines and newspapers across the country, including The New York Times. He lives in upstate New York. John’s favorite published crossword is his three-page centerfold for Golf Digest featuring pictures of past US Open winners. John’s puzzles have appeared in unconventional settings: on cereal boxes, a rock band’s album cover, and the side of a three-story brick building. A jigsaw puzzle for US Congress members, a crossword in the shape of the H. J. Heinz keystone logo, and another in the shape of an Absolut Vodka bottle were memorable design challenges. John has been honored to construct special birthday puzzles for Lee Iacocca, F. Lee Bailey, Ed Ruscha, Keith Hernandez, Frank Sinatra, James Stewart, and Harry Connick Jr., and framed fan letters from Stephen King and Frank Sinatra hang proudly in his upstate New York office.

This book went much faster than the first 2 in this series. I had it on my bed, and did puzzles in the morning, and puzzles before going to sleep, and it was done in about a month.

This format is just "ok" ... I definitely prefer the previously used format. Thanks!

This collection is roughly akin to a Wednesday/Thursday NYT crossword in difficulty. It has a plethora of "punny" clues and most of them will make you think about connotations and denotations. Overall a fun experience.
