Puzzle Notes

Dear friends:

It's our pleasure to bring you a cryptic debut from Deanne Cliburn in collaboration with returning constructor Joe Pasini. We think it's pretty cool.

Deanne Cliburn (she/her) lives in Oklahoma City with her husband and two dogs. She began constructing crossword puzzles in 2023 and this is her cryptic debut.

Joe Pasini (he/him) lives in the Pacific Northwest with his roommates and their two dogs. He began constructing crosswords and still does.

Constructor notes (written in turn, one word at a time): We are so pleased and excited and especially honored to have made something for your enjoyment, and we hope you have a very good solve and a very good day.

Please enjoy the puzzle! We'll see you in two weeks for more cryptic shenanigans.

Happy solving,
Steve + the AVCX Cryptics team
