Another fairly straightforward everyman, with a couple of new words and some parsing that escaped me.

Everyman 3555/23 November

Posted by Pierre on 30th November 2014

Pierre.

I often find with Everyman that his references make me go and look up stuff that I kind of knew, but had forgotten.  So once I’d finished solving the puzzle this morning I spent more time than I should have searching for and learning about novels, songs, films and history.

Everyman 3551/26 October

Posted by Pierre on 2nd November 2014

Pierre.

A lot of clever anagrams in this one, and the typically good surfaces that we expect from Everyman.  One or two tricky ones, though, where I for one needed some crossing letters before I could fathom what was going on.  Good job those of us in the UK had an extra hour in bed.

Pierre.

Another pleasing Sunday morning crossword from Everyman.  One or two old chesnutty friends making an appearance, but it’s a puzzle for improving solvers, so we won’t quibble.

Pierre.

Another sound as a pound puzzle from Everyman.  Struggled with the bottom half this morning.  It’s all there, though: when in doubt, read the instructions.
