AZED 2,201

Posted by PeeDee on 17th August 2014

PeeDee.

My first Azed puzzle as a regular blogger entailing a very enjoyable trawl though Chambers. The great thing about blogging an Azed puzzle is that it gives me the perfect excuse to spend the afternoon reading the dictionary without attracting unwelcome comments about ‘needing to get a life’ etc. Thank you Azed.

I found the constructions trickier than usual for the IoS but most of the clues had straightforward one-word definitions which meant I filled the grid quickly even if explaining it all took quite a while.

Thanks Poins.

Financial Times 14,639 by Goliath

Posted by PeeDee on 4th June 2014

PeeDee.

I have not seen a Goliath puzzle before.  From the general feel of the puzzle I’m guessing that Goliath is a new setter rather than an established one setting under a new pseudonym.
