Puzzle Notes

Dear Friends:

Brendan Emmett Quigley's "Knead a New Ending" is 3/5 difficulty, and fun times.

BEQ reports proudly, and with good reason, that "my band, the Boston Typewriter Orchestra, had the distinct pleasure of working with Grammy-winning producer Kurt Ballou on our latest record. Kurt's day job is guitarist for the mighty, legendary metal titans Converge, and so we thought: metal typewriters, metal producer, makes sense. Anyway, this is just 20 minutes of your time, and it's got a boss Bowie homage on the cover. Crank it." (Spotify/Bandcamp)

We also wanted to plug some quality new puzzles for kids, since those are so rare but valuable. The Wall Street Journal has run three Puzzability kids' puzzle pages recently -- on May 2, June 27, and the most recent on September 12. Besides appearing in the print paper, they were and are also available as one-puzzle-per-page downloads, free on the WSJ puzzle site. No need to subscribe to get them.

Be well,

Ben and the AVCX crew // @avcxword
