Crossworld in paperback

Remember Marc Romano's book, Crossworld? It's coming out in paperback next week. (I wonder if the assorted typos and errors have been remedied.) Entertainment Weekly says, "If the documentary Wordplay doesn't sate your crossword-puzzle fetish this summer, pick up this literary ode to the obsession."

This raises a couple issues:

1. There are crossword-puzzle fetishists? Is there a whole crossword porn industry I'm not aware of?

2. Any crossword-puzzle fetishists worth their [old sailor] have already read the book in hardcover.
