Puzzle Notes

Dear Friends:

Today's AVCX+ is a 72-word themeless by Malaika Handa, titled "Muchas Novias." Malaika says it's "hardish, but worth it" -- and we totally agree!

Malaika has been making crosswords for 3ish years; nowadays they are mostly sassy midis for Vulture magazine, but you can sign up here to get emails for content in other publications. A high-word-count themeless puzzle with four stacks is her favorite genre, and it always begs the question... Which is your favorite corner?? (SE.)

Be well (and happy stacking),
