New Cryptic Era

Hi All,

Last month my wife and I made our debut in The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age with the publication of a cryptic and quick on the puzzles page. Our designation is “D&LS”. We will be appearing on the fourth Thursday of each month, a slot that’s been held by NS all this century. Our first effort took solvers used to NS by surprise and a few found it more difficult than normal. Future crosswords in this slot will be easier.

If you have access, please have a go and let me know what you think.

    Wow! That is momentous! I hope it doesn’t mean that NS is critically ill. Love your work.
