The Stickler Weekly One Week Break

There will be no Stickler Weekly this week. My family is gearing up for the wedding of my daughter, Claire, next weekend. My contribution will be a tailor-made standard crossword that summarises the happy couple’s life so far, complete with inserted pictures.

Last week I received a complimentary copy of Don Manley’s Chambers Crossword Manual, now in its fifth edition. Last year Don and his wife attended the Australian Crossword Club‘s annual gathering in Sydney as special guests. This latest edition carries a Stickler from 2007 – I’m honoured to be included in the book that contains crosswords from many cryptic greats. Most of Australia’s online bookshops have the new edition in stock.

Thanks for doing The Stickler Weekly – it will return next week.

Best and thanks

The Stickler

    Trust that you’ll share a copy of the pressie post nuptials, would love to see it. Julia

      I second that request — although I suppose a lot of the clues will be too family-specific for the layman.

    Cheers, David. Many happy returns.
