Hard themeless this week, courtesy Kameron Austin Collins. AVCX Themeless #15 is 5/5 difficulty!
Last week's meta, by Francis Heaney, was on the easy side I suppose (or maybe just especially fun), because we had a record 373 entries, almost all of which were correct. Check today's puzzle for the solution, or Crossword Fiend once the review is up. The winners, drawn using a random number generator, are Alyssa Verano, Adam Beerman, Eric LeVasseur, who get a three-month subscription extension. We deeply appreciate everyone playing, and hope it lifted your spirits.
We'll have a guest puzzle next week--a debut even!--followed by something by me.
