Deluxe Subscriptions

I’m thrilled to offer you an irresistible choice of crossword titles with our wonderful new Deluxe Subscriptions range beginning in January 2014.  The titles include Easy Crosswords, Hard Crosswords, Large Print Crosswords, Aussie-American Crosswords (U.S.-style grids and Aussie-style clues), Diamond Grid Crosswords, Fill-the-Blank Crosswords (fill the blanks in the clues) and a range of themed crossword books, namely Movies, Music and Sports.  Significantly, in what could be a first for crossword books anywhere, every subscription is offered in right-handed and left-handed options.

Each subscription, which features crosswords in that familiar Puzzle Wizard style, covers four quarterly issues over a twelve-month period. Books will be mailed by the 20th of the month of issue.  And remember, every crossword in every Puzzle Wizard book is an original puzzle, never published before.

Why are we calling them ‘Deluxe Subscriptions’?
• Each issue includes 100 pages plus covers
• Each issue is produced in ‘book-style’ with a square spine (rather than stapled)
• At 279mm x 215mm, each issue is slightly larger than the traditional Puzzle Wizard magazines
• White paper is used throughout
• Each subscription has a left-handers’ option

Deluxe Subscriptions may be ordered on-line at The Crossword Shop or by regular mail order at our Subscriptions and Back Issues page.

 

Heritage Issues

I’m incredibly excited to make available to you every issue that we’ve ever published, right back to issue No. 1 of World of Crosswords which was released back in August 1999.  Thanks to the technology known as ‘Print on Demand’, all back issues of World of Crosswords have ‘come back to life’ and are once again available for purchase.  ‘Print on Demand’ is a method of book production which uses digital printing, not the traditional metal plates, and which allows quality books to be printed one copy at a time.  The United States is at the forefront of the technology, and this is where the books are currently printed.  Each issue is an enhancement of the original.  Although the contents are the same as the original magazine, each book is newly manufactured with a square spine (rather than stapled), a slightly larger size and white paper throughout – hence the name ‘Heritage Issues’.  It’s important to note that the books are manufactured after you’ve ordered them, then shipped from the U.S. to The Puzzle Wizard.  As a result, please allow approximately six weeks to receive your books.  Orders of two to four books may be mailed individually from The Puzzle Wizard to reduce postage costs.

All issues of World of Crosswords and Crossword Magic are available for ordering.  As an added bonus, all past issues of All Giant Crosswords, All Large Crosswords and All Quick Crosswords, previously only available by subscription, are also available for ordering.

Heritage Issues may be ordered on-line at The Crossword Shop or by regular mail order at our Subscriptions and Back Issues page.

 

Back Issues

If you’ve missed out on previous issues of World of Crosswords or Crossword Magic, some regular back issues are available, as are the current ‘on-shelf’ issues of these two titles.

Please refer to the Subscriptions and Back Issues page for availability of individual back issues.

Furthermore, some back issues are available on-line at The Crossword Shop.
