This one might not actually be as hard as some of the others? I clued it for NYT, but they said no and I decided to bring this one to the light of day now rather than trying to shop it around to other markets. I think it’s a good puz, even if it didn’t catch the NYT team’s eye!

This might be a little less hard than usual? I’m not sure. I did construct this to submit around, not to put on the website, so I might have clued it a little easier. It’s been a few months and the reason I’m using it instead of making a grid just for y’all is because I have, so to speak, A LOT ON ONE’S PLATE (15).

I do think it’s got some cool entries and I hope you have fun solving it!

Cryptic media circus!!!!

Can’t believe I forgot to post it here! For those who don’t follow me on social media, I had a really big cryptic Sunday: three puzzles published on one day, two of them cryptic debuts. Solve ’em here:

I also did an interview with The Browser in which I discuss cryptics and look swole (free to watch).
