Hello, my fellow cryptic lovers! Today's puzzle is a debut from the wonderful Chris Evans. A little about Chris:
Chris is a British puzzler who's been solving cryptics for a decade and a half. He started setting them during the first lockdown in the UK and published puzzles to mpcryptics.blogspot.com for two years. He's hoping to one day see one of his puzzles appear in a UK paper.
I hope you enjoy the solve! Remember, we're still open for clue submissions, but only for the next few days, so don't tarry for too long if you'd like to submit!
