From the Author
For the anagrams which are listed in this work, the Anagrams tool of the CD-ROM version of the 3rd Edition of the American Heritage Dictionary was used. Several results for each word were then deleted - for example abbreviations such as ROM, RAM, UNESCO, DOS, CPU, ECT, EEG and so on. Capitalized words which were repeats of lowercase words were usually deleted - for example Red, Trine, Host, Sir and so on. It was felt that a single entry (lowercase) was enough. Please forgive me if you find more words - the edition of the American Heritage Dictionary which was used was created in 1993, it is an older version and may not have the newest words. You may occasionally find an abbreviation which I failed to delete, they were not intentionally left here, but were discovered by reviewers.
Also, please forgive the use of different size fonts on the various results pages. It was desired to fit the results for each word on a single page and therefore a font size was used which permitted this.
The base word (the real word) from which each anagram was created is underlined on each results page. In some cases, when it is felt the reader may not know the word, the definition of the base word has been included on the results page.
There were two alternatives available for showing the results pages - either immediately after each anagram, or all of the results pages at the end of the book. It seemed that the alternative selected was the best way to go - especially for the E-book Edition.
For the E-book edition, the only way to retain the formatting desired - and required to make this workable - it was necessary to PDF the original MS-Word Document and then export each page from the PDF file as a JPG image file. That is the reason the Kindle Edition is so large (in MB).
