Mevs

UPDATE: Now all my puzzles are listed in this post. Most recent ones at the top of each sub-section.

I thought I’d make a post so I could keep track of all my Mev puzzles in The Independent in one place. I’ll update this as they come along. (An “improved” interface means the direct links no longer take you straight to the puzzles – you have to select the date. :-/ And they’re also falling off the net after a yearmonth, so I’m re-hosting them on this blog with their permission.)

[Edit:] I might as well list my appearances in 1 Across magazine here as well, where I set as The Void. Links are to the blog entries – which may or may not have spoiler comments – not the puzzles themselves, as it’s a subscription magazine. Five puzzles a month to your door/inbox, of varying degrees of difficulty/frustration/deviousness. Give it a go: Free sample and subscription info here.
