i Cryptic Crossword 1438 Glow-Worm

September 18, 2015

Its Friday and usually a we get a puzzle at the tough end of the scale, but not today. Today we get Glow-Worm who sets enjoyable but not to challenging puzzles. I don’t know if its me but I seem to think we have had a lot more anagrams in the past week than usual, this isn’t a complaint as I like them, both 1ac and 23ac are worth mentioning. The last to go in was 12ac,even with all the crossing letters in place I struggled with it just doesn’t look right to me.

    For some reason I’ve got it into my head that Glow-Worm means a tough puzzle, but as you say this was mild enough. It took an embarrassingly long time for the penny to drop about 15ac.

    Many thanks for the blog. A gentler puzzle this Friday by a long way, though 4d/9ac/12ac did take as long as the rest put together.

    Just to be different, the two which made me struggle were 19d and 24ac; kept wanting it to be ‘excrete’ and something like glee till the penny dropped. Good puzzle, I too liked 1ac.

    12a was my last also- as it took some time for the penny to drop over “feed” = paid. Liked 1a also.
