Another Cover!



Here's the full cover for Cryptic Crosswords For Dummies! The book went to print yesterday, huzzah! If you click on the image above, you can see it at a better size ...

This book is a companion volume to Solving Cryptic Crosswords For Dummies, which is the in-depth how-to guide. This book has a little basic info on cryptics, but is mainly a collection of 56 new cryptic crosswords, for you to have a go at. There are 25 Easy cryptics, 18 Medium ones, and 13 Hard crosswords.

I was all set to do my weekly analysis of The Canberra Times Gemini Cryptic last weekend, using the Saturday paper. But then I noticed that the paper runs a competition about the Saturday crossword (you can tell I'm not a regular reader!), and I'm sure they would not have been impressed if I'd done a 'full reveal' on all the clues, before the closing date for the competition, LOL! So I decided on discretion over valour, and let it slide.

In some rather exciting news, I am going to be interviewed on ABC Radio in Perth this Friday afternoon! I'll be on Russell Woolf's Drive show, at around 4.10 pm Perth time (6.10 pm Eastern Standard Time). If you go to the Drive webpage, you can Listen Live (use the 720 ABC Perth link in the right hand side bar).
