Paolo Pasco's "Trade Stories" is 4/5 difficulty. It's an unusual size - 19x15! Also a very fine puzzle that you'll dig for sure.
We'll have a bonus celebrity puzzle this Friday -- a collaboration between me (Ben) and the great Ira Kaplan of the band Yo La Tengo, who are on tour now. The bonus puzzle will be free in exactly two places in the world: at YLT's Brooklyn show on Friday, and in AVCX subscribers' inboxes. Then we'll have ANOTHER bonus puzzle the following week, which will be a debut.
Ben and the AVCX crew
