As indicated eslewhere, the first of a shorter blog on Quixote puzzles.    Will try to concentrate on a small number of clues focussing on the trickier ones and those I liked the most.    Happy to explain others if asked.

A little harder than normal.    Solving time:  29 mins

* = anagram

ACROSS

8 PAR ODIST     My favourite clue

12 FIFE    My last to go in.    that is very loud in short = IE FF (music).  (ieff)* with the anagram indicated by ‘nasty’

13 REST HARROW    Nice to work out a new word from the wordplay.

17  (BUN) G

20 C (AIM) AN

21 SILENT   (listen)*    Excellent misleading definition.

DOWN

7  BOUNDERS
