Whynot’s puzzle is a splendid challenge, in which he finds many devious ways to tease and amuse the solver. Hopster has produced a tough puzzle with seamless surfaces which provide plenty of artful misdirection. Snacky, a setter from the States, shows that you don’t have to be British to produce an excellent cryptic crossword!
Clyde’s third puzzle is a terrific double jigsaw which should keep you occupied for quite a while.
These crosswords show that there are some excellent new
compilers around, and I wish them all luck with
their compiling careers.
