EARLYBIRD SUBSCRIBER PLUS BOOK AND CAP: An Earlybird subscription plus you get an autographed copy of any of my books (you choose the book--some old ones are unavailable) and a Fireball Crosswords baseball cap.
CREATE A CROSSWORD WITH ME: Co-construct a puzzle with me for Fireball Newsweekly Crosswords. On a mutually agreed-upon Friday, you will get a one-on-one master class on the ins and outs of crossword construction, and you'll share the byline with me on the puzzle. You also get an Earlybird subscription, lunch or dinner, a Fireball Crosswords baseball cap, and you take with you one autographed copy of every crossword book I have left (warning: that's more than 20 books, so it will be heavy). [Backers pay their own way to Great Neck, which is a 35-minute train ride from New York City's Penn Station, as well as near JFK and LaGuardia airports.]
