Cryptic Crossword 865 Phi

November 23, 2013

November 16th, 2013
A really consistent level of high quality clueing from Phi again this week. 4 novels round the perimeter – by Dickens, Collins, Greene and Steinbeck, as indicated by 4 down ‘novel’. Many lovely clues with interesting devices (who could not like 9 across with Bertie Wooster described as ‘aunted’?), but I’ll go for my fave as the perfectly conventional 1down because I’m a sucker for a smooth surface reading: Soldier picked up rumour about love = Trooper.
