This week's puzzle is the most challenging yet from the AVCX - and one of the finest, too. Francis Heaney's "Your Table is Ready" is six out of a possible five in difficulty.
So, hey, let's make it a contest. Send a picture of your completed, perfect answer grid to email@example.com by Thursday, June 13 at midnight to be entered in a random drawing to win a copy of either a) Francis's parodic Holy Tango of Literature (http://www.amazon.com/Holy-Tango-Literature-Francis-Heaney/dp/1578601592), b) his upcoming Boss Lady Word Searches, or c) a six-month AVCX subscription for yourself or a friend. Your choice if you can tackle this puzzle by the end of Thursday, and if your name is selected.
A .puz is provided, but we gently suggest solving on paper. Good luck. The solution will be given next week.
