Sharpen your pencils! The classic, bestselling crossword series returns, with 300 never-before-published Thursday to Sunday-size puzzles.
Simon & Schuster published the first-ever crossword puzzle book back in 1924. Now, more than ninety years later, the classic crossword series lives on, with a brand-new collection of crosswords from expert puzzle constructor, John M. Samson.
Designed with convenience in mind, this mega crossword puzzle book features perforated pages so you can tear out the crosswords individually and work on them when you’re on the go. Samson delights die-hard fans and challenges new puzzle enthusiasts as they work through this timeless and unique collection of entertainment.
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 U.S. 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.
