Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

So glad to have the AV Classic debut this week of the duo Maia McCormick and Michael Lieberman, whose "Dated Advice" is 21x and highly original, at 2.5/5 difficulty.

Maia writes: "I'm a Brooklyn-based crossword constructor, software engineer, choir director, folk dancer, sourdough enthusiast, and wearer of many hats. This puzzle was my first collaboration (not to mention my first completed 21x21), and working with Mike was a treat! For more puzzles of varying levels of polish: head to my site."
