Byron Walden has a hard themeless this week, the AVCX's 24th themeless puzzle. We rated it 4.5/5, although some testers found it more like a 5. (It might depend on your Byron-y wavelength).
AVCX stuff to look forward to soon includes a large-format guest puzzle, sometime in the next couple of weeks.
And y'all have access to the archives, so you can enjoy our Orca-winning/nominated puzzles at your convenience, but your non-subscriber friends might like to try them, too. So we're giving away our four Orca puzzles for a limited time. Tell your friends to send a blank email to email@example.com with "AWARDS" in the subject line to get several of 2017's best crosswords sent to their inbox.
