Solution to #6 now available, along with an explanation of the theme.

Cryptic Crossword #7 now live. My intention was to make this one slightly harder than the others, so I would be very glad to hear your comments (and indeed a PMed full solution before the answer comes online Smile ).

I'd like to point out that I've made the very minor change of moving the preamble text for the crossword from the bottom to the top of the grid, so hopefully it is more noticeable (in particular to anyone who has completed the puzzle and is thinking of making a submission).

Apologies if you've logged on to the crossword page in the last few minutes and seen some strange looking displays (now fixed). The solution to Cryptic9 is now available as are (special treat) two new cryptic crosswords (10 and 11, unsurprisingly). That'll hopefully give me a break of a few days before I do another. Smile

A bit of a treat for you (or possibly not Evil or Very Mad). I've introduced a new category of crossword: the number crossword. Admittedly, this is mostly so that I could publish a puzzle I've had around for quite a while now, so please do take a look. I believe it should be fairly tricky. Smile
