A sixth collection of 50 jumbo-sized cryptic crosswords, all of which originally appeared in the Saturday edition of The Times newspaper, compiled by Mike Laws, Editor of The Times Crossword. This is the sixth collection of jumbo-sized cryptic crosswords to be published in conjunction with The Times. Compiled by Mike Laws, the former Editor of The Times Crossword, The Times Jumbo Crossword appears on a weekly basis every Saturday. This book contains 50 examples of mind-expanding cryptic crosswords, each with more than 70 clues. The Times Jumbo Cryptic Crossword Book 6 ensures that all jumbo crosswords published in The Times since the crossword's inception in 1970 are now available in book form. The Times Jumbo crossword was devised in 1970 by Edmund Akenhead, then Crossword Editor of The Times. The large grid (27 x 27 squares) creates great challenges for long words and phrases adding an additional level of diffficulty to completing the crosswords -- the normal Times crossword has a 15 x 15 square grid.From the Publisher:
