Pierre.

Good puzzle from Hectence, and it came together nicely once I’d got a foothold; but some seriously tricky ones in here, for this solver at least.

A fair Quiptic, with a couple of clues that I felt weren’t that cryptic, even for a Quiptic.  Thanks to Moley.  Definitions are underlined in the clues.

Late on parade; apologies.  Laptop meltdown when I was about to post.  Has anyone else screamed abuse at an inanimate object?

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: Orlando’s got the hang of this Quiptic stuff.  A delightful little puzzle to start the cruciverbal week.
