142. Over 99 NYT Favorites

It’s been 10 years since Will Shortz’s first collection of favorite crosswords was published.

But crossword constructors have been busy in their puzzlemaking labs concocting all sorts of entertaining, unexpected and devilish creations since then, and a compilation of their slyest efforts are now available in 8.5-by-11 form: Will Shortz Picks His Favorite Crosswords: 101 of the Top Crosswords from The New York Times.

The big question is how many puzzles are in it. The publisher’s website claims it’s 101, while the cover says 100. Oh, the mystery! I guess we’ll all just have to run out and buy a copy to solve this conunding perplexion.

The old favorites: Will Shortz’s Favorite Crosswords.
