This week's puzzle is on the easy side - Ben Tausig's "Love + Letters" is 2/5 difficulty. Thanks to Francis Heaney for guest editing!
And a plug for a friend of the AVCX: The 2019 Bryant Park Crossword Tournament puzzles, all constructed by Mike Shenk (who is extremely good, in case you're unfamiliar), are now available for $5. You can also get Mike's puzzles from the previous three Bryant Park tournaments for just $15 for the four-year bundle. See the details on the Puzzability website here.
