Here the only theme is "How many fresh new words and phrases can the constructor cram into each grid?" These puzzles, from some of the top puzzle makers in the country, previously appeared in the Washington Post but have now been collected in book form for the first time. This is a truly monumental book, sure to delight solvers for hours on end.
