Format: Paperback
These puzzles are awful mental torture, made worse by the tantalizing fact that the pain can be relieved by sneaking a look at the solutions, AKA cheating. Clues are not numbered: the answers have to be fitted jigsaw-wise in the grid by deduction. The earlier grids have a few letters pre-filled in to ward off utter despair. Later ones have letters around the periphery, but you have to solve elaborate cryptic clues to get them. The grid clues themselves never cease to amaze me with their ingenuity and originality. However, if you're a beginner, forget it! These puzzles are for mighty intellects like what I have got.

I've bought Chambers Araucaria Volume 3. These are literary-themed crosswords, many of them alphabet jigsaws. You will need some web research and a dictionary of quotations.

I have been solving - or attempting to solve - this gentleman's puzzles for about 30 years. He brings a lot of fun to his puzzles.
