Book Review
Every crossword fan should keep this reference within reach. The softcover edition is billed as the most comprehensive pocket crossword dictionary on market. And this hybrid dictionary, thesaurus and almanac lives up to the promise. Probable answers to clue words are listed alphabetically and by number of letters. Literary, dramatic, historical and other references are usefully arranged. "Elephant Man" listings, for example, include the film's director and cast members. "Festival" includes the festival names of the Greek and Roman deities. Look under "Language" for the mother tongues of nearly three pages of countries. A very handy book!

Player's Handbook: Core Rulebook I (Dungeons & Dragons, Edition 3.5)

Book Review
This Revised Edition (also called 3.5) of one-third of the Dungeons & Dragons trinity of core rulebooks (the other two being The Dungeon Master's Guide and The Monster Manual) contains errata, rules updates, and outright changes to the already-published Third Edition rules.

To prevent boredom and enable creative choices, no single ability, spell, character class, or weapon should have an overwhelming advantage over another. So what has changed?

A noteworthy effect of this new weapon size system is that Small characters can wield small-size...
