Attention Puzzle Fans (SHAMELESS PLUG)


200 Crazy Clever Kakuro Puzzles - Volume 1 is back from the printer, and it looks good.

The version I link to there is perfect bound, which has a nice spine, so it looks good on a bookshelf, or it stacks well in a pile of books. However, some people might prefer a spiral binding, so that it lays more flat during solving. After lunch, I'll set up a project like that at no extra charge.

Buy one for each puzzle solver on your holiday list!


As an aside - once I sell 50 copies of either edition, I'll invest in an ISBN number, which gets me in the door to talk to Amazon and BN.com so I can get listed there, as well. So, buy a bunch of copies!

Thanks!




ETA: I've got one report already that the downloadable PDF version, while a bargain at $4, seems to be coming down corrupt. If you've paid for a downloadable version and are having trouble, contact me, and I'll hook you up with a better version of the file.




ETA, part 2: Ok, so I've set up a spiral bound project here. I suspect it's good, and if you're anxious for a puzzle book that stays open, you might consider getting a copy of it. HOWEVER, I think I ought to buy a copy first to verify that the spiral binding doesn't interfere with the clues on the far edges of the page, especially on the big puzzles. So, maybe one more week until the spiral bound version is approved and ready to go.

Yes! I definitely want the spiral bound edition. I'm getting one for me, one for my aunt and maybe, if things go well on Thursday, one for the date-girl. She's a math geek. :)

But I was so sad to see that Laura didn't get a mention or a dedication. ;)

Laura and you each get mentioned in the "special thanks" section at the very end of the book.

Woohoo math-date-girl-geeks!

I'll buy at least one for sure! I prefer spiral-bound puzzle books.

This was me and my nasty "let's log him out and see if he notices" computer.

I've been getting an abnormal amount of that the past few weeks.

I'll get the spiral bound version up very soon here.

If I had known they'd be this popular, I'd have done the spiral binding from the outset.

It usually takes 4 days to go through the printing process, and another 3 days or so to land on my doorstep - so watch this space, probably next Monday.

And thanks!

Thank you kindly!

Here's hoping there aren't any formatting surprises. If it turns out that the spiral bound versions have holes punched in inopportune locations, obscuring critical clues, I can certainly provide a PDF version which should make the puzzles solvable.
