It is useful to get this up promptly so that I can alert you to a Phi puzzle in the Inquisitor series on Saturday 28 November and a Kcit puzzle in the Enigmatic Variations series on Sunday 29 November.
An interesting shock to see a book of puzzles called ‘Enigmatic Variations’ on a shelf in a local bookshop. A copy had to be bought, and thus there’s a rare update to the book review corner here.
I have also put up a setter’s blog for my November Crossword Club puzzle Anniversary.
No puzzle this week – but I’ll get one up next time around. That, I see with a bit of a gulp, is the last before Christmas, and is around the time I’ll be sending out this year’s APEX puzzle. It may have been a rum old year, but it has nonetheless gone by at a canter. Rather than put something up over Christmas weekend, I shall add a little something (which I think has not been published) the weekend before (i.e. 19/20 December).
Other things not yet published include a Pedro puzzle in The Times on Friday 4 December with its anonymous big brother featuring me on 8 December. There may be a Kcit Toughie before my next update as well. If I hear of it when I’m putting up the blogs for this weekend’s IQ and EV puzzles (some time around 9 December), I’ll let you know.
