April 2021 Monthly Crossword
This month's puzzle celebrates Mr X, who appears in the grid, and who helped put things 4d. In recognition of this, the two important elements of 4d (Y, Z) form the basis for five entries. Each of these consists of an example of Y followed by an example Z (none of the complete entries are real words). Each of Y and Z are indicated by wordplay only, but the wordplay for Y is separate from the wordplay for Z.
