Blue-Chip Cryptic Crosswords as Published in The Wall Street Journal

by Emily Cox, Henry Rathvon, Mike Shenk



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Once puzzle fans try these cryptic crosswords from The Wall Street Journal, they’ll never return to regular crosswords again!
Dedicated puzzle enthusiasts see it too often: ho-hum clues like “Toledo’s lake” for ERIE. That means they need to spice up their solving with the pure puzzling pleasure of cryptic crosswords, where each clue offers double the dose of wordplay. To find the answer, it’s necessary to do additional deciphering—recognizing a homophone or working out a charade. And the cryptics in this collection have something more: not only does each clue contain the extra wordplay, but every puzzle also includes a theme that can bend the rules. Special instructions help solvers find their way through the trickery.

Emily Cox and Henry Rathvon are bona-fide puzzle royalty whose acrostics appear in The New York Times every other week. They regularly write standard crosswords for the Boston Globe and cryptic crosswords for The Wall Street Journal (from which these puzzles were taken) as well as a Canadian publication.
