PeeDee.

A really great puzzle from Io, one of the best puzzles I have blogged for a long time. Far too many good clues to single out any particular one so I will leave that up to you.  Thanks Io.

Financial Times 14,767 by MUDD

Turbolegs.

First up, a big “Thank you!” to Gaufrid, for covering for me these past few weeks when I was away on vacation.

Mudd’s puzzle today was a pleasant solve, themed around Scotland. The reason I suspect is Halloween (31st October) got its name from the Scottish song, “All Hallows’ Eve”, sometime around 1745.

Financial Times 14,757 – Dante

Posted by Sil van den Hoek on 30th October 2014

Sil van den Hoek.

Monday Prize Crossword/Oct 20

Pretty much standard fare from Dante. Quite a few anagram-based clued and at one point four double definitions in a row! But some really nice ones too (e.g. 13ac or 2d).

PeeDee.

Great puzzle from Monk.  The last couple of puzzles I blogged from Monk had some easier sections and I was beginning to wonder if Monk was mellowing a little.

Financial Times 14,764 / Sleuth

Posted by Gaufrid on 28th October 2014

Gaufrid.

I don’t know what has happened to today’s scheduled blogger but something has obviously prevented him from turning up. My apologies for the late appearance of this post which, in the interest of minimising further delay, only gives a parsing of the clues and no commentary.

Financial Times 14,761 / Bradman

Posted by Gaufrid on 24th October 2014

Gaufrid.

Bradman has been appearing regularly on a Friday in recent months so it didn’t come as a surprise to see him today. As is generally the norm with this setter, there was nothing controversial in this puzzle though it did lack his customary obscure (to some) word or two in the grid.
