Another month means another crossword. The October puzzle (Something Appropriate) and the answer to the September puzzle are now available. (And I have some explanations to get in place.)

Welcome to November and welcome to this month's crossword puzzle. The answers to the October puzzle are also available.

I've done a bit of catching up with the explanations (not realising how far I was behind) so up to September we are complete with the October ones to follow very soon.

A new month with a new crossword puzzle, The Twelve Days Of Xmas. My apologies for joining the unfortunate trend of highlighting Christmas somewhat too early, but alas I don't have the luxury of our retail fraternity in being able to hold off until a more suitable time. Smile

The answers to the November puzzle are also available, with the explanations to follow forthwith.

Happy New Year to you all, and a new crossword is here to help you celebrate the fact. Answers to the December puzzle are also available, and I have some catching up with explanations to do. Smile

The explanations (specifically for November and December) are now in place. Also a point of order: the clue for 23d in the January puzzle had migrated temporarily to the across clues, but has now been re-homed. Smile

The February puzzle is now available, along with the answers to the January one.

I make no apologies for the fact that the latest puzzle is simply my personal tribute to the life and works of David Bowie. In my opinion, his overall contribution to music, art, culture, equal rights, etc is entirely unmatched: Space Oddity, Ziggy Stardust, the arm around Mick Ronson's shoulder playing Starman, the video for Ashes To Ashes, Tin Machine, saying goodbye with Blackstar, taking MTV VJ Mark Goodman to task without regard to his own publicity, and so many more things, all done whilst being a wonderfully erudite and downright good person. I will miss him greatly.

So finally (!) the March puzzle is now available along with the February answers. Smile

The March puzzle, Face To Face, is (in my opinion) a masterpiece of construction by JWawro. Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I did.

April is here, and so is a new crossword puzzle (So Much Death). The answers to the March puzzle are also available, along with the explanations to it and the other recent ones that were missing (Embarassed).

We bid farewell to April and say hello to the answers to last month's puzzle. Also of course greetings to the new May puzzle, a very clever submission from JWawro entitled 'Broken'. Hope you enjoy it.

September sees a submission from JWawro entitled SOLOISTS, a nice challenge to while away the tail end of summer (or winter down under). The solution to the August puzzle is also available.
