Stan and Dan's MILLION WORD CROSSWORD DICTIONARY was hailed by New York Times crossword editor Will Shortz as "the largest, most up–to–date, and most useful" and praised by crossword editors from the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post Magazine, and the Wall Street Journal. With THE MILLION WORD CROSSWORD ANSWER BOOK, these noted crossword experts give puzzlers the next "million word" tool they need. This radically comprehensive word finder can be used by solvers when two or more letters of the answer are known. It is even easier to use than a crossword dictionary! The 1,000,000+ entries will consist of exhaustive lists of crossword answers from 3 to 7 letters, where 2 letters are specified. For example, seven–letter answers with H as a second letter and C as a sixth letter will include the words CHALICE and PHYSICS, the proper names EHRLICH and SHYLOCK, and the phrase THIN ICE.
The book's "base lexicon" is comprised of words and phrases from actual puzzles, representing about 88% of all crossword answers––unapproachable by any other reference book. Included will be slang terms and celebrity names, a making this book as topical and relevant to modern solvers as the authors' previous book.
