Have you checked out Hayley Gold’s Across and Down site lately? Hayley essentially blogs an NYT crossword about once a week—whenever a puzzle inspires her creativity—in webcomic form. She often unearths an angle I hadn’t considered. Hayley’s also looking to raise funds via Kickstarter to print up some giveaways to hand out at the ACPT. (I’m hoping to pick up a magnet there myself.)
