No blog for this yesterday, doubtless due to unforeseen circumstances. This isn’t a blog, but I think Paul’s puzzle deserves a mention.
Six of the clues were of a kind, with no further definition. These were one- or two-word clues, for two-word or multi-word answers. The answer, in each case was a phrase containing an anagram of the clue plus an anagram indicator.
So, for example:
1,23 Satchmo? gave STOMACH UPSET
2, 15 Wand? gave FALSE DAWN
16,4 Acts? gave CAST ADRIFT
The one I thought really brilliant, though, was:
24, 13 Withstood tune? (4,4,2,3,6) which gave SUIT DOWN TO THE GROUND — wordplay is *(withstood tune), with ‘ground’ as the anagram indicator.
