What makes these 59 crosswords and 26 word puzzles tpuzzles top-flight? They’re created by two of the best crossword makers today—the duo who work for journals such as the New York Times, the Boston Globe, and Atlantic Monthly. And all of these puzzles have appeared in Attaché, US Airways’ in-flight magazine. They’re challenging, but not brainbusters, and witty enough to tickle a puzzler’s gray matter. Each crossword has its own special theme; one, titled “Eponyms,” for example, focuses on names. There’s even a tricky little “Anagram Crossword,” and a few different kinds of word games, just to keep your mind sharp. This terrific collection is great for a little mental vacation—whether you're on an airplane or not.
