A word of warning: if you're not a seasoned and skilled solver, don't think you can just "jump in" at this level. Practice with some intermediate collections first. These are not mamby-pamby computer generated puzzles like those found in many a daily newspaper. The clues are clever and deceptive and some of the answers surprising (yet pleasing).
An excellent offering if you like a challenging crossword experience.
