  1. I still grade myself as completely amateur at these, though I did get moderately good at the Guardian one some years back and got to know the compiler. I have books. I have trained. But to achieve more than five Times clues in one crossword now just leaves me ecstatic.

    1. I’m afraid the article – published in 1981 – is completely fraudulent, I’ve never in my life completed the ‘Times’ crossword. It was commissioned because I’d had a couple of anagram/crossword solving dictionaries published.

      1. Ha ha! Completely fraudulent but professionally carried out! Did you miss your true calling? You could have bought an atlas and been an accomplished travel writer!!!
