Puzzle Notes

Dear subscribers: 

Aimee Lucido's "Sickeningly Sweet" clocks in at 2/5 in difficulty. Enjoy it.

Stay tuned for another bonus puzzle later this week, a variety offering from Francis Heaney. We should have one more still before 2013 is up, bringing the year's bonus total to five. That's 57 puzzles overall, which is the opposite of shabby. That would be "healthy" or "honorable," according to the dictionary.

Pretty soon we'll also have a special page on the website where you can pick up holiday gifts from the AVCX and its various constructors. If there's anything in particular you've been itching to have, just drop us a line.
