I’ll have you know that I resisted making what are now 17-Across and 51-Across grid-spanning entries for the longest time. It was only when I realized that splitting those entries in two would (a) put 40 blocks in a grid, which is too many for me, and (b) unnecessarily close off two corners of the grid in one way or another (because of the middle stack and the vertical grid spanner that were already in place) that I left the grid open there and made it work. I say “made it work” as if I had to force it to work with some awkward entries, but that isn’t really the case.

As always, I’d like to know, folks… comment is welcome! Come say hello! What did you like? What could I do better?

As always, share this link! Pass it around! New puzzle on Tuesday!
