i Cryptic Crossword 893 Glow-Worm

December 19, 2013

I never really got on the setter’s wavelength today, struggling throughout. Perhaps it was just me?

Nobody on the original blog seems to have questioned why PSYCHICS in 16d is defined by ‘science’. Any ideas?

I’m also still less than fond of clueing ‘e’ by ‘endgame’, but there you go.

COD? 3d. ‘Instruction to produce rider’s gear from laundry? (4,5)’.

The 2008 blog is complete.

    Chambers defines psychics (as a singular noun) as ‘the science of psychology’ which is new to me but i’ll forgive glow-worm cos the clue was really well put together, I thought!
