    With more than 1,000,000 answers, this volume contains more than twice as many answers as any other crossword dictionary. 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, including contemporary slang, phrases, and brand names.

    Meticulously compiled by two crossword professionals with a combined thirty years in the field, and based on a massive analysis of current crosswords, there has never been a crossword dictionary with the breadth, depth, and currency of this one. From Jim Carrey to Sister Carrie, Homer Simpson to Homer's Iliad, the wide-ranging entries include 500,000+ synonyms, 3,000+ literary works, 5,000+ films, 20,000+ famous people from all fields, and more than 100,000 fill-in-the-blank clues so popular in today's crosswords.

    Featuring an introduction by New York Times crossword editor Will Shortz, The Million Word Crossword Dictionary makes every other crossword dictionary obsolete.

    • The Million Word Crossword Dictionary

      The dictionary itself is as described. The CONDITION of it when it arrived is my issue. It was packaged in such a way that the dust jacket was mangled and ripped. I'm just happy that it wasn't a gift for someone. Used books I've sent for labeled "fair" have been in better shape. Shipping dept, you should be ashamed!

      Great value - lowest price around. Invaluable in solving even most difficult crosswords. O's on-line rep helped greatly in distinguishing between this book and similar one by same authors.
