Cryptic #35

News: The next mini-project I have for this site is to replace all the downloadable versions of the crosswords with playable versions. It may take some time as I do not know Javascript well, and will need to investigate how to incorporate the code that Crossword Compiler outputs into SquareSpace’s interface.

Also: no crossword for two weeks as I will be on a much-needed break.
