New Word Sudoku (Swifty Sudoku!) Puzzles for Saturday, 8/17/2019

"Please get in the elevator," said Tom uppishly.

A Tom Swifty is an adverbial pun simultaneously describing the speaker and the speaker's statement. The name comes from the Tom Swift book series for young readers. The authors were roundly criticized for overusing adverbs and descriptive phrases, so that Tom rarely said anything without a qualifying adverb. (The fact that they did this on purpose, to make the books laugh-out-loud funny to read, didn't blunt the criticism.) A Tom Swifty pun is a parody of this style—no longer related to Tom at all—that will make you groan out loud.

8/15/2019: Update on my puzzle books on Amazon

Take time to do what makes you happy."

Let me bring you up to date on some new books I have published recently on amazon.

(link)

This week I published the 11th book in my Missing Letter Hidden Word series (all hidden puzzle words in the 11th book contain the letters in JIN, and therefore the anagram at the bottom of each puzzle omits those letters). I intend to complete the series through the entire alphabet—I have planned at least 27 books, and may come up with a few more!

(link)
And last month I published the first of two books in a short series I call Proverbial Sudoku—each set of puzzles contains a couple of Word Sudoku puzzles and a quote grid; as you solve the puzzles you uncover an old proverb still meaningful today. I'm just wrapping up the second book; I'll publish it in September.

My author page is www.amazon.com/author/davethompsonapr. The full list of books you'll find on amazon is

  • Missing Letter Hidden Word Sudoku: ABC
  • Missing Letter Hidden Word Sudoku: ACE
  • Missing Letter Hidden Word Sudoku: BAD
  • Missing Letter Hidden Word Sudoku: CEL
  • Missing Letter Hidden Word Sudoku: DOC
  • Missing Letter Hidden Word Sudoku: ELM
  • Missing Letter Hidden Word Sudoku: FIE
  • Missing Letter Hidden Word Sudoku: GAS
  • Missing Letter Hidden Word Sudoku: HEW
  • Missing Letter Hidden Word Sudoku: ICE
  • Missing Letter Hidden Word Sudoku: JIN
  • Proverbial Sudoku I

All told, these dozen books contain at least 950 puzzles. None has appeared in this blog. Each book makes a great gift for you and your friends who love Sudoku!

I only do Sudoku on days that end in y."
