Big thank-yous to:

  • Frank Longo for editing and fact-checking the puzzles before you see them.
  • Matt Gaffney for inspiring me to write a few metas, encouraging me to do the contest, and blogging the puzzles at Crossword Fiend.
  • Jeff Balbien and Elijah Carbonaro for technical assistance.
  • Susan Keefer (aka my sister), who helps me brainstorm on meta ideas, test-solves the puzzles, and gives me great feedback.
  • Charles Montpetit for test-solving the puzzles.

Like metas and creative crosswords? Some other independent constructors whose puzzles have challenged and inspired me (not a complete list!):
