There isn’t anything terribly seasonal about the entries to this puzzle, which appeared on Christmas Eve 1997. I have made three changes to the clues, one updating a reference (I suspect the original reference is still recognisable, but one may as well be topical), another introducing some italics (and there is only one clue with italics…), and the third out of annoyance that I didn’t spot the more obvious word to use in the first place. I will put the grid here just to make it clear this is a crossword page not a blog one to anyone just looking in. But the puzzle itself is substantial, and I think a PDF is the way to go for the clues! Solution will go up as a webpage as usual.
