i Cryptic Crossword 1251 Hypnos

Here’s the 2010 blog:

    Lunchtime comment: not following the 2010 blog link yet, as I’m still less than halfway through this, with several answers pencilled in as possibles. At the moment, I’m not liking it much, either.

    Teatime update: finally finished, with second-person input! Bleugh, though.

    Finished this in dribs and drabs, with occasional help from Chambers word wizard, like Funicular from ??n???l?r, which then freed up the SW corner… I don’t think I mind a hard crossword, but I reckon all that extra effort deserves more reward – in terms of wit and invention – than we had today.
