Given the nature of the challenge, the standard of "reasonably famous" was generally as loose as necessary to fill a slot, though people needed to have some claim to fame greater than local renown to make the list. Of course, preference was given to internationally well-known names (Count Basie, Bela Lugosi Noun 1.

The Oxford Guide To Word Games This is the second edition of a work originally published in 1984 (reviewed by Dave Shulman in the May 1985 Word Ways). The original emphasis was on word games, including solitary amusements such as crossword puzzles, but Tony Augarde has expanded its scope to include various other forms of wordplay: crossword clueing, kangaroo words, blends, text messaging, etc. Perhaps the strongest feature of this book are the examples of historical wordplay, of the sort covered by Bombaugh in Facts & Fancies for the Curious From the Harvest-Fields of Literature: riddles, enigmas, conundrums, charades, chronograms, acrostics, palindromes and anagrams. The history of the two major developments of the 20th century, Scrabble and the crossword, is competently covered, and there is even a chapter devoted to the wordplay of Lewis Carroll. Writing under constraint is featured in a chapter on lipograms and univocalics, and in sections on the classic poetic devices of boutsrimes, centos, chain verse, and equivoque, and the work of the French group OuLiPo. No doubt the chapter of greatest interest to the hard-core logologist is the one on word squares. As expected, Augarde has nicely summarized their origins and has exhibited the classic examples of the 19th and 20th centuries. Although the landmark 10-squares of Rex Gooch came too late for inclusion, it is regrettable that the noteworthy hand-generated 10-squares of Jeff Grant were not mentioned, much superior to the tautonymic square of Borgmann or the incomplete square by Rubin. Surely Eric Albert's unidictionary (Webster's Second) 9-square, which appeared more than a decade ago, is also worthy of mention.
