    For me, Anax is rapidly earning himself a place on the top table of cruciverbalists – this was great!

    Oh. I must’ve just had an off-day then. I struggled with this and didn’t finish it. Quite a lot of answers I’d never heard of. [sigh]

      Much of this was very difficult, as always with Anax. A setter who’s worth persevering with though.
