Giving this collection one or two stars is ridiculous. They are perfectly good crosswords, just not in the same style as the current Indie puzzles, though two or three of the compilers in this collection still write Indie crosswords. If you read the product description and know who the current compilers are, the difference is not too surprising.
An up-to-date collection of Independent crosswords is long overdue.

Very difficult, much more so, than later years. The compiler seemed to think, like some compilers in the Times, that all solvers are experts, in numerous subjects. The comiler has something in common with The Guardian one.
