This week's puzzle comes earlier in the week than usual. Patrick Blindauer's "Turning Right" is 2/5 difficulty.
It's also a very unusual grid size, at 31x9. Back to the normal schedule and normal size next week! Enjoy the long weekend.
Our friend Pete Muller has an announcement in the meantime. The seventh annual 2017 Muller Monthly Music Meta starts on Tuesday, Jan 16. The submission deadline is Sunday, Jan. 21.
Subsequent puzzles will come out on the first Tuesday of each month.
As always, there is a mega-meta hidden in the 12 monthly puzzles.
Best of all, it's free! You can sign up at pmxwords.com.
