Stickler Boxed Sets are collections of published Sticklers. It takes a while to assemble each one because, although they once appeared in the paper, each crossword essentially exists as a computer file with no formatting. I've had to re-create each crossword for publishing and value-add by generating clue help and solution information. Each batch should get easier to produce!
A Stickler Boxed Set consists of:
25 published Sticklers
25 solution grids
online access to Clue Help and Worked Solutions for all included crosswords
Some revisions have been made to modernise and globalise clues, making these crosswords accessible to the whole world and allowing those who came late to the Stickler to effectively enjoy new crosswords. These crosswords were only ever published in NSW - now all of Australia can experience The Stickler.

Stickler Boxed Set 1 is a collection of 25 puzzles from 2004 - 6 years into my tenure - and
I'm happy to say the crosswords are still OK. I had obviously established my style by then, and only a few clues irk me slightly.
