There were many requests for a book of puzzles at the time The Stickler was axed from The Daily Telegraph. A number of people stated that they were late in discovering the puzzle, so they would be interested in buying a collection of published puzzles.
I’m pleased to announce the release of Stickler Boxed Set 1, a collection of 25 published puzzles from 2004. I intentionally started with this era as my style was well established and I am still happy with the puzzles. Some clues have been modernised and globalised to appeal to a wider audience, but the majority of clues remain untouched. These puzzles were originally only available to people in NSW, Australia, so will be new to everyone else.
To add some value, I’ve included clue help for all the puzzles on my website, and worked solutions that will be especially useful for those who are learning cryptics or teaching others the art of cryptic solving.
I’ve set up some simple buying options, and there’s an choice to buy for one person or for a group so you can copy it and distribute to friends, solving buddies at the club, or in a community college class etc. Stickler Boxed Set 1 comes as an eBook or in bound form.
Each boxed set takes a while to assemble as it has to be formatted from scratch. The next one is in the pipeline, and there are more to come.
