I've been writing unpublishable puzzles lately, so I thought I'd share a couple with you.
First is Machine of Death, based on the collection of short stories of the same name (http://www.machineofdeath.net
). You don't need to have read the book to understand the theme - the title says it all, really.
Second is Ultimate Dilemma. I was inspired by Patrick Blindauer's recent asymmetrical puzzle (http://www.patrickblindauer.com/Free_Mo ... %20PUZ.pdf
), so I tried making my own. Getting this theme will require some current pop culture knowledge and is just a little twisted.
Anyway, get PDFs here: http://www.scribd.com/neville_fogarty
.puz files are attached to this post. Does anyone know of a weblog service that lets you include .puz files natively? The free-r the better.
If you do either of these puzzles, I'd love to hear your feedback - positive/negative/neutral/chaotic/otherwise.
