Dac At His Best

November 9, 2018

The i have today reprinted The Independent’s obituary of David Crossland. Much to my surprise, they’ve also printed one his puzzles that I don’t believe has been previously published in the i. Which partly explains, I suspect, his absence this Wednesday. The answers are printed underneath, but should you be interested, here is the Fifteensquared blog for that puzzle:


Thanks Dac for all the puzzles. Gone but never forgotten.

    A particularly good example, I thought. Phi’s appearance on Wednesday made me suspect a Dac on Saturday, but this was an unexpected bonus and a nice tribute.

    That was indeed Dac at his best. Nothing too difficult, but every clue a good one, and those trademark surface readings…

    An absolute delight. The very model of a daily cryptic.

    He will be greatly missed.

    When I saw it was a Dac puzzle I thought ‘The next half-hour will be a pleasant one’ – and so it proved.
