Editorial Reviews

Praise for Fireball Crosswords and Peter Gordon:
 
“These are daring, first-rate puzzles. They are fresh, smart, and contemporary, and they go places that newspaper puzzles don't, won't, or can't. Every serious crossword enthusiast I know is a Fireball subscriber. If you want to know what the cutting edge of crossword construction in America looks like, just open this book and start solving.” —Michael Sharp, aka Rex Parker, author of the crossword blog “Rex Parker Does the NYT Crossword Puzzle”
 
“Fireball puzzles are hot. If, like me, you're a crossword geek who needs something to keep yourself challenged Mondays through Thursdays, they're the perfect solution.” —Daniel Okrent, former public editor of the New York Times, author of Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition
 
“A book of Fireball Crosswords? Oh, no, what a terrible idea. I need to have a week or two in between these puzzles, or else I'd be unable to get anything else done-they're that addictive. Readers, hear me: Ration yourselves!” —Jon Delfin, seven-time American Crossword Puzzle Tournament champion
 
“Peter Gordon has a remarkable talent for tough (sometimes very tough) but fair cluing. His Fireball Crosswords are inevitably challenging and original. These are some great puzzles-I wish every puzzle editor aspired to this level of quality.” —Eric Berlin, author of The Puzzling World of Winston Breen
 
“These ain't your grandma's crosswords-unless your grandma is awesome and likes awesome puzzles.”
—Brian Cimmet, Lollapuzzoola co-director
 
“I like my puzzles devilishly hard. So I thank Satan for Peter Gordon and Fireball Crosswords, the toughest, cleverest puzzles under the sun.” —Lou Kesten, The Associated Press
