The constructing team of Michael Sharp and his imaginary friend Rex Parker has cranked out two new puzzles:
- There’s a titled themeless available at the Crossword Fiend forum. When I test-solved it, it didn’t feel tougher than a Friday NYT (but I didn’t time myself so there’s no empirical data). This one’s by Rex.
- And they made a themed guest puzzle over at Brendan Quigley’s blog. It’s billed as being of medium difficulty but Joon and I definitely found it hard. I got pinned down in the lower left corner and Googled two things, so if you can finish it without Googling, you trump me. Michael’s got the byline for this puzzle.
