Puzzle Notes

Dear Friends:
Aimee Lucido's "Shrunken Heads" is 2/5 difficulty -- happy solving. I hear her debut YA novel is coming out soon, too.
Thanks to all 361 solvers who submitted answers to last week's Francis Heaney meta. The solution is attached here, and you can read about it in detail on crosswordfiend.com. Big ups to Robert White and Trip Payne, whose names were randomly drawn from among the correct entries, and who each win a 3-month subscription extension. Erin Rhode is up next with a fun offering, then Ben. 
Be well,
Ben and the AVCX crew
