Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
These are very well done, but probably beyond the level that a beginner would comfortably enjoy. (A beginner would do well to get a copy of Cox & Rathvon's "Handbook of Cryptic Crosswords".) They also are "variety" cryptics, meaning that in addition to the cryptic-style clues, there is an additional "gimmick" the solver must suss out and use to solve the puzzle completely. The puzzle will describe a pointer to the kind of gimmick used.
Every clue is a clever little puzzle in its own right, so cryptics give a special feeling of exhilaration as they are solved.
