I hope to get round to putting a puzzle up over the weekend, but I thought it worth putting up an alert.
I would, in any case, have been telling you about my forthcoming Enigmatic Variations puzzle, Directors, on July 9 – except it is now coming forth on June 25. One of those rare events where a puzzle’s theme clashes with a sensitive news story – the puzzle originally intended for Sunday is being held over, and my puzzle has been moved forward in its stead. Which meant a rather sudden bit of proofreading that I had been expecting in a week or so. My puzzle’s theme is unlikely to clash with any headlines.
With the Phi Inquisitor today that means there should be two forthcoming setter’s blogs – in fact, I will combine them and bundle in Friday’s Independent as well – that will be appearing somewhere around July 4 or 5.
So pop out and get your Sunday Telegraphs (or log on to PressReader.com) this weekend. Just in case I don’t find the time to augment this, let me quickly list the puzzles appearing over the next fortnight in addition to the regular Friday Independent slots: there’s a Pedro Quick Cryptic in The Times on July 3 and a Toughie from Kcit on July 6.
