Francis Heaney has this week's puzzle, at 2/5 difficulty. It's called "Ooo-eee!"
Thanks to all who donated to the org. suggested in last week's puzzle email. (Avoiding spoilers for those who haven't done the puzzle yet, but see last week's email for specifics). Your donations raised more than $3,000, and the AVCX itself pitched in an additional $400 at the end. Two winners from among the donors were drawn at random. Congrats to Elisa Caref and Aubrey Ann Thompson, who win a copy of Queer Qrosswords 2, or an AVCX subscription extension.
