A terrifying preamble. Ugh. Jumbles. Double ugh. Definition/letter mix clues. Ugh to the nth power. Yet this was brilliant! Once the method of entry of the across revealed itself, a smile was...

Extremely difficult, and unless I've missed something after hours of searching, a certain amount of insider knowledge is necessary to understand some of the thematic connections. I don't possess that...

Can’t find a thread so here goes… After last week’s masterpiece from Android, I didn’t envy the setter whose puzzle would follow. So much to live up to, so perhaps the editors wouldn’t bother and...

Lovely puzzle. The grid fill was fun and not too taxing; I enjoyed putting my rudimentary knowledge of the six-letter adjective to use. Despite spotting a couple of names quite soon, it took a fair...

That was a workout and a half! Despite initial reservations that this was going to be a slog, I really enjoyed it. I'll admit I "solved" most of the across clues by reverse engineering from potential...

I found the clues tough to the point of annoyance in the early stages, but it became easier as the thematic material revealed itself. I find this way of presenting the clues adds the extra obstacle of...

A jigsaw grid with entries of uncertain length, and no long answers to help us get started. Is that not one obstacle too many? I certainly thought so after I'd solved all but four of the clues and not...

I have searched extensively, but that doesn't mean there isn't a previous thread lurking that search can't find. I'll just say that I found this hard work, and add more if this really is the first...

I can't believe I'm first here, but search turns up nothing. I suspect some will lambast this puzzle for being far too easy - and it certainly could have benefited from a less obvious treatment of the...

Blimey I'm old - the last thematic item didn't exist when I taught the general subject! Really enjoyed this as I do all Ifor's puzzles - it was hard but yielded to perseverance at just the right pace....

I thought this was terrific, with thematic material that just kept on giving. My drawing abilities are even worse than that of a certain artist who exhibits unmade beds, but even so my final result is...

Rather surprised to find an Oxymoron puzzle in the Listener. Wasn't that the pseudonym the late, great John Harrington used for Enigmatic Variations, while his Listener and Inquisitor puzzles were set...

The perimeter entries were a great help once the link between them became clear. The ungenerous checking is a serious obstacle when you've got letters latent, uncertain entry points and some very...

I have a Zyxel VMG1312 series combined modem/router. Recently I've noticed that the Internet connection slows down from the expected 20 Mb/s download speed to about 13 Mb/s over the course of about...

I can't find a thread but no doubt AB search will embarrass me again... This was FUN! I loved the riddles and the way their answers led through the rooms and ultimately to freedom. Excellent clues...

I enjoyed this puzzle despite my dislike of some of the subject matter! Not too difficult, though the clashes ensured that some of the clues took a long time to crack. Thanks, Merlin.

Harribobs can always be relied on to produce a spectacular grid construction - and so he has here. Still, I found the refilling of the grid to be an unrewarding slog, not because the final grid...

When I saw then title I had a horrible feeling this was going to be a topical puzzle about the C-word but no, the theme turned out to be one of my favourite stories. Beautiful implementation, and if...

An absolute delight. I thought this was going to be impossible at first, but some lucky guesses at the words in Ring 5 proved invaluable. Tough but scrupulously fair clues, and refreshing to have a...

Can’t find a thread so here goes. I thought this was going to be another gentle one until I ground to a halt with the last few substitutions. The clues for these were little help and I had to resort...
