Hi all! (Yeah, it's me again)

So there are a lot of "puzzle-with-circles-haters" around here... Interested to see what you guys think about this...

Had a rather protracted rejection route... Initially "maybe" pending being allowed to use circles @ the LAT. In the mean time sent off to the NYT with a fairly terse no. Resubmitted when circles were allowed - maybe became "no" on the basis of assymetrical circles and it being unclear which part of 31A is theme. I fixed the latter problem by adding more circles - not the most elegant solution. Theme probably going to be obvious off the first entry, but anyhoo...

Well, I'm no expert on what editors will like (and I've got the stack of rejections to prove it ;) ), but I personally liked it. Maybe because, knowing the quote, I was able to solve this with an average amount of difficulty.

As a constructor, I'd personally try to find a quote from that author that includes one of his made up words (e.g. You can have my jellyfish / I'm not sellyfish). But then, see comment above. :(
