Here’s a themeless I hope you find savory. See some of you at ACPT next weekend!
Tough as Nails Themeless #82
I’m back in business! Here’s your themeless.
Thanks to all those who’ve preordered my book. Due to supply chain issues, the publication date will be in May, not this month as I had originally mentioned. Apologies and I hope it’s worth the wait!

I made this grid a couple of years ago and got around to cluing it only a couple of weeks ago. Have fun!
Tough as Nails Themeless #80
Here lies a puzzle that was too esoteric for mainstream-land. I’m still going to hold onto the seed at 19A and try and use it somewhere that DOES go out to the wider world, because I think it’s a cool word that can be clued fairly. (It is also a word that describes me.)

I’ve been experimenting a bit with pinwheel-esque grids lately. Hope you enjoy this one!
Tough as Nails Themeless #78
This closes out year 3 of Tough as Nails. Whether or not you’ve been along for the ride, please pre-order the book! There are 18 new puzzles in the mix.
Thanks as always for solving!

The library is open, darling. OFFICIALLY!
Surprise! It’s not a themeless!
Despite the near-total focus of this blog on crosswords of various sorts, I really do spend a lot of time on trivia as the text under my logo implies. (Hey Jeopardy! Wanna hire me?)
I’ve gotten to explore the intersection between trivia and crosswords a lot through Inkubator’s collaboration with Atlas Obscura, and today’s puzzle is in that vein (although not in AO’s specifically). I was inspired to make it when I thought of the songs referenced at 19- and 57-Across, which are both really fun, and the connection between them even though they sound nothing alike. I hope you enjoy this departure from the usual!
PS: Want me to write trivia, or a trivia puzzle, for your organization? Hire me!

I see 1-Across everywhere I go, it seems, so here’s a puzzle!
