Both myself and Cornick are away this week, so there won’t be any blog posts. Please feel free, though, to put links yourself to Fifteensquared in the comments. Happy solving! 🙂

    “Astonishingly good” according to one commenter. Can’t say I was overwhelmed, but it was an entertaining enough puzzle.

    Finished it but, as usual, the theme passed me by.

    I, like the blogger found some of this a bit tough. Got 4ac and 6d even though they were new to me and according to my old Chambers dictionary 22ac should be hyphenated.

    Much harder Dac than usual. Real struggle to finish it.

    Rats. I didn’t buy it today.

    Good offering from Quixote today. I couldn’t get 6D without help from dictionary and still can’t see where super fits in?

    Surprised to see Quixote today, and it seemed a little more challenging than the usual Monday puzzle. The “super” part of 6d is “def” – something I’d come across before but in goodness knows what context. The Urban Dictionary confirms this and supplies an illustrative quotation which poses more questions than it answers. 😉

    Thanks AndyT I get it now. We don’t do urban down here in Somerset 🙂

    Witty, devious and thoroughly enjoyable, I thought.

    Liked 25ac – CHAIR. Very witty and misleading.
