Independent: newspaper

I’m making a distinction between the Monday-to-Saturday Independent newspaper crossword and its sibling that originated in the magazine that accompanies the Saturday edition.  The two are very different beasts.  If you look at the page on Types of crossword, the Saturday magazine puzzle is a Thematic while the ones accessible from this page are standard blocked crosswords.

I’ve set over 1,200 puzzles for the Independent daily slot, so there are plenty for me to choose from.  I’ll identify them by number in the series and date of publication.  The order they appear here will probably not be chronological at the detailed level, though I hope that overall I’ll move forward in time quite steadily.   (Later: An aspiration almost instantly dashed by the 18-year gap between the second and third on the list…I gave up credibility for Lent, you see.)
