Puzzle Notes

Dear Friends:

Today's AVCX+ themeless comes to you from Rebecca Goldstein. It's pegged at a 2.5/5 difficulty and is titled "It's About Time." Rebecca is a scientist developing immunotherapies for cancer. A New Yorker at heart, she lives in the Bay Area with her wife. She's published several dozen puzzles in the New York Times, L.A. Times, USA Today, and other mainstream and indie venues, but, as its title suggests, this is her first solo themeless.

Some exciting news from the editing side, as promised: we are beyond delighted to welcome Ada Nicolle to the AVCX+ team as an editor! Ada (she/they) is a crossword constructor based in Toronto, Ontario. She runs the indie crossword venue Luckystreak Xwords+ on Patreon, and is a regular contributor to the USA Today Crossword and Redstone Crosswords. When she's not constructing puzzles, she can be found performing comedy around Toronto. (She also has the April 21 Inkubator Crossword, if her name looks familiar in your inbox today!)

Cheers from a 25% larger editing squad,

Sid, Chris, Quiara, Max, Ada & the expanded AVCX crew
