A fairly hasty update this week, as other things are going on. In particular, I’m about to solicit votes for the 2013 APEX puzzle, so regulars on that list can expect an email imminently. Hence, this week’s puzzle isn’t quite in the usual format.
This week’s Independent puzzle (Friday 7 February) had a Nina based on a New Zealand-born comic writer called John Clarke. Here’s a link to the book it referenced, and here’s a link to the author’s own site.
There is another spot where you can find my puzzles – amati.com. The puzzles are classical-music themed, with a bias towards string players, instruments and luthiers. The puzzles are monthly (towards the start of each month, as now) and will appear under ‘Articles’ (where you’ll also find an increasing range of articles about classical music generally). The first one is here.
