Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,
We hear that Lollapuzzoola, the best crossword tournament to occur on a Saturday in August (this Saturday, August 17, to be exact), is sold out, but you can still solve at home. The Inkubator will be at Lollapuzzoola and we're looking forward to seeing our solvers and supporters! And speaking of solving at home, you can still get this year's Boswords puzzles. The Inkubator was a cosponsor of Boswords this year and we're always happy to support our friends in the puzzle community.
We hope you'll appreciate this week's collaboration by a collaborating couple, Niamh Girling and Mira Martin-Gray. Expect to find it moderately challenging!
About our constructors: Niamh Girling and Mira Martin-Gray love crosswords and each other. They are both active in the local experimental music scene in Toronto.
Note: In response to your requests, we've also included the answer key to the July 26 contest puzzle, "Don't Leave Me Stranded," by Anna-Marie Ruoff, as an attachment with this mailing. 
When you're done solving, check out Diary of a Crossword Fiend for a write-up and discussion, every Friday after an Inkubator puzzle is published. For general updates, follow us on twitter at @InkubatorXWords, and visit our website. Thanks to all of our subscribers for your continuing support, feedback, and kindness!
Coming up next, on August 29: a geographically oriented grid from emerging constructor Madeline Kaplan.
All best,
Laura and Tracy
