"Wordplay gang: (l. to r. background) Tyler Hinman, mysterious piano-playing guy, Will Shortz, Merl Reagle

Wordplay started out as a profile of N.Y. Times crossword page editor Will Shortz, but gradually expanded into a group portrait of six hardcore types -- crossword constructor Merl Reagle, pudgy not-quiter Al Sanders, congenial former champion Ellen Ripstein, super-brilliant Trip Payne, a 20 year-old whiz kid named Tyler Hinman and a bespectacled Tin Pan Alley piano player whose name escapes me."

Update: that mysterious piano player has now been identified.
