I’m starting to like this “interlocking long answers” format. The two 12-letter acrosses were the seeds, and I found some interesting entries for 5-Down and 24-Down to form the interlock. What I didn’t expect was that I had to intersect each of those long acrosses with long stacked pairs of down answers, too. Since I had to keep the block configuration the way it was in the middle to make the aforementioned interlock work, I had to take out a pair of black squares to turn one 10-letter entry each in the upper left and lower right into a pair in each of those corners.

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

Thanks as always to the test solvers for their input.

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