It may be hard to believe that a relatively wide-open swath like the one you’ll see in this grid would have developed organically, but that’s exactly what happened. The grid began its life as a twinkle in its constructor’s eye and just the 15-letter entry across intersecting with the central 13-letter entry down. But I decided to see if I could expand that single down answer into a staggered stack to intersect the 15… and it worked out. Not only did that work out, but the spaces now occupied by 30-Across and 42-Across were originally split into two answers each. When I discovered that I could open up those spots cleanly, I leapt at the chance.

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 Tuesday!
