Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

We're proud to run the AVCX debut of John Ewbank this week! It's called "Peak Performers," rated 2/5 difficulty, and you will like it a whole lot.

Bio-wise, John Ewbank is a scientific writer based near Manchester in the UK. He got into writing cryptic crosswords whilst studying at the University of Warwick, and now regularly sets cryptics for The Times of London (under the pseudonym Trelawney). John began dabbling in American crosswords during one of the many UK lockdowns, though it took him a long time to get the hang of it!
