When somebody famous dies, the New York Times occasionally runs a crossword puzzle dedicated to that person. The maker of these macabre tributes is usually the one and only David J. Kahn, whose expertise has earned him a reputation as the “Grid Reaper.” Now Kahn has turned his talents to 50 dead celebrities and constructed a crossword about each, full of fun facts, trivia, and wordplay worthy of their subjects, who include such notables as Pope John Paul II, Rosa Parks, Frank Sinatra, Julia Child, and George Carlin.

These puzzles commemorate people no longer with us, and include 13's and 17's as well as 15's. The book's not due out until September, but Patrick Blindauer was nice enough to give me an advance copy (in return for a favor involving Lollapuzzoola), which I finished within days of receiving it.
