Whynot’s puzzle is a splendid challenge, in which he finds many devious ways to tease and amuse the solver. Hopster has produced a tough puzzle with seamless surfaces which provide plenty of artful misdirection. Snacky, a setter from the States, shows that you don’t have to be British to produce an excellent cryptic crossword! Clyde’s third puzzle is a terrific double jigsaw which should keep you occupied for quite a while. Foxglove first appeared here in 2011 and he is back with an entertaining and worthy challenge to the solver. Hoodwink is another new setter who shows great promise. Harold’s puzzle, another debut, is terrific fun and quite a challenge.

The puzzle from Rags is another on the harder side. The clues show great originality and flair. Raymond’s puzzle is packed with plenty of clever clueing and will give you a good mental workout. Not one for a short train journey!


Gonzo has also produced a puzzle which will detain you for quite some time. Like with any good puzzle, you’ll kick yourself after getting the answers, which are cleverly hidden in plain sight by smooth and plausible surfaces.

These crosswords show that there are some excellent new setters around, and I wish them all luck with setting crosswords in the future .
