Peter Biddlecombe "peterbiddlecombe"
 
The "Guardian" Cryptic Crosswords Setters Series: Bunthorne
The "Guardian" Cryptic Crosswords Setters Series: Bunthorne
"A collection of puzzles by Bunthorne - Bob Smithies, who died in 2006.  Quite difficult puzzles with some very inventive clues - Bunthorne was a classic "individualist" Guardian setter"
The "Guardian" Cryptic Crosswords Setters Series: Paul
The "Guardian" Cryptic Crosswords Setters Series: Paul
""Paul" is John Halpern, who sets for the Times, Independent and FT as well as the Guardian.  He writes cheeky and tricky clues in the non-Ximenean style of setters like Araucaria and Enigmatist"
The "Guardian" Cryptic Crosswords Setters Series: Rufus
The "Guardian" Cryptic Crosswords Setters Series: Rufus
"Rufus writes puzzles that are relatively easy for the Guardian, so this is probably the best book in this series for new solvers.  But there's plenty for more experienced ones to enjoy too."
The "Guardian" Cryptic Crosswords Setters Series: Gordius
The "Guardian" Cryptic Crosswords Setters Series: Gordius
"Gordius is maybe more likely than most to make clues difficult by requiring knowledge rather than subtle cryptic wordplay. One of the easier Guardian setters for me - but I've sat in the black chair."
