This is the book that puts it all together--the logological advances in letterplay that have been accumulating for the past 30 years. Since most of these discoveries appeared first in Word Ways, what better person to attempt the complex task of assembling the puzzle than editor Ross Eckler, who has edited the mag since 1970? Ross's new book, just published by St. Matin's Press, presents the material in eight chapters (83 selections) progressing from simple to more complex forms and containing dozens of illustrations, tables and lists interspersed throughout the text. At times, it works like a chess manual by a grand master who anticipates all the possible moves and discusses them.
