Let me break the ice by recommending the Chambers Rhyming Dictionary: not new but perfect for those compiling word lists as well as making verse. Having wanted a rhyming dictionary for years it was easy to prefer the Chambers over the competition when I saw that the rhymes are arranged in lists under section headings which give the sound of the main stressed syllable. Section 14, for example, is words using /or/ where draw rhymes with adore, boar, awe and door.
The paperback version is £7.99, a snip. I love it.
