Everything a crossword enthusiast could possibly need to defeat even the most puzzling puzzles. Published by Chambers Publishing.

The Chambers Crossword Dictionary is an essential resource for crosswords of all kinds. Comprehensive, reliable and easy to use, it is the indispensable companion for all cruciverbalists. 

This fully revised edition includes more than 500,000 possible solutions to quick and cryptic clues, arranged in more than 19,600 entries. The entries comprise not only thesaurus-style synonyms but also more than 1,200 reference lists of encyclopedic information, from famous pirates to ancient cities, baseball terms to types of grass. This edition also features advice and content from crossword experts, including Peter Biddlecombe, The Sunday Times crossword editor and The Times Crossword Championship winner (2000, 2007), and Jonathan Crowther, better known to cryptic crossword solvers as Azed, having set crosswords for The Observer for over 40 years.

'It is fairly clear which qualities are enjoyed in favoured clues: in a nutshell, short, simple, well-crafted sentences that paint a coherent and believable but misleading picture are well regarded. If these can be supplemented with topicality and wit, so much the better'
