The 14-15-14 stack you’ll see in the middle was definitely something I set out to do from the start, but I definitely wasn’t planning on the long downs running through them at 9 and 24. It was actually a pure stroke of luck that those long downs worked out — I was working in the area that’s now the beginning of 24-Down when I discovered that it could be extended all the way to the bottom of the grid. Crossword constructors, if they’re anything like me, always have the ticker skip a beat as they do that, because they’re briefly worried if the opposite symmetric answer will work too. Obviously, it did.

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!
