i Cryptic Crossword 979 Glow-Worm

March 31, 2014

A game of two halves. The top half being a bit of a breeze, nicely judged for a Monday. Though there’s no way that STAKE = ‘martyrdom’… The bottom half an entirely different crossword, often wilfully obscure. I’ve still no idea what to make of 16ac.

COD? 10ac – ‘When the Charleston was newest, it rocked! (8)’.

The 2009 blog is complete.
