April 2017 Monthly Crossword
The thematic asterisked clues are a bit offbeat. They have no definition, and in each case are constructed as alternating syllables for the two entries. These four entries consist of the protagonist, two things he did and one thing he used. A further thing he did (undefined, but otherwise normally clued) is given at 14/27. Additionally, seven consecutive clues contain extraneous words that define the theme both initially and in full.
