Crossword Puzzles, Memphis-style

Posted on Thu, Jun 28, 2007 at 4:00 AM

From the Daily News: Mark Blakeburn has published Memphis in Puzzles, a book of 54 crosswords revolving around the city's history, events, music, sports, and more.

Of course, this begs the question of what the clue might be for "You ain't hitting on nothing with me."

According to the story, Blackburn has contributed puzzles in The New York Times, Simon & Schuster, and Dell Magazines. He says in terms of the difficulty, his Memphis puzzles are easier than the ones in the Times and harder than the ones in The Commercial Appeal.

Memphis in Puzzles, $10, is available at Burke's Book Store, Davis-Kidd, Booksellers, Xanadu Music and Books, and Tater Red's.
