Puzzle Notes

Dear friends:

We're thrilled to bring you roster member Kareem Ayas' debut puzzle for Lil AVC X, a 13x10 offering called "Ignore the Date, It's Just an Ordinary Puzzle." Kareem's puzzles are bursting with creativity and wit. We think you'll find this puzzle, though, to be incredibly normal.

Kareem Ayas comes all the way from Beirut, Lebanon. He's currently a high school IB English & Film teacher and writer in New York City. This is his 9th year living in the US and his 3rd year being obsessed with crossword construction - the only thing he loves more than making crosswords, is his dog Kane (who helps inspire many ideas on their walks).

Kareem says: "My first Lil AVC X puzzle! As soon as I found out when this crossword was slated to be published, I knew what I had to do. But seriously, it's just an ordinary puzzle."

Headed to your inbox tomorrow: another midi from roster member Carolyn Davies Lynch!

Keep on being the coolest,

Your friends at Lil AVC X
