9780061689017: The Million Word Crossword Dictionary

With more than 1,000,000 answers, this volume contains more than twice as many answers as any other crossword dictionary-the New York Times Crossword Puzzle Dictionary runs a distant second at less than 500,000 words. More important, it is the first crossword dictionary ever to comprehensively cover the clues and answers that actually appear in today s most popular crosswords. It has all the fill-in-the-blanks, synonyms, slang terms, pop culture references, brand names, literary works, people, abbreviations, and foreign word answers puzzlers need, including thousands of films, thousands of songs, and hundreds of television shows.

Meticulously compuiled by two crossword professionals with a combined 40 years in the field, and based on a massive analysis of current croswords, there has never been a crossword dictionary with the breadth, depth, and scope of this one. Featuring an introduction by New York Times crossword editor Will Shortz, The Million Word Crossword Dictionary makes every other crossword dictionary obsolete.

For the new edition, the authors have gone line by line to make sure all data is up-to-date and relevant, and have added 64 new pages of content, such as the latest slang terms, films and TV shows, celebrities from all fields, Nobel Prize and Academy Award winners, and more. Additionally, the new edition features thousands of new entries submitted by "Stan and Dan s Puzzle Patrollers," buyers of the first edition who took the authors up on their offer to submit new answers they found in crosswords. And taking reader feedback into account, this edition will have larger, easier-to-read type, ensuring it remains the ultimate in crossword puzzle dictionaries, as well as a must-buy for anyone who enjoyed the previous edition.
