The Week In Crosswords

Top Story: Puzzazz launched its new app this week for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. I happen to be one of the authors represented with Crossworlds: Science Fiction Comics, and am proud to be part of a forward-looking collection with so many others.

The Irish Examiner crossed the bounds of good taste by presenting a clue that referred directly to an athlete’s recent death, prompting the editor to apologize and promise an investigation. The clue was [____ Spence – Ulster rugby star that died in farming accident] for NEVIN. While outlets like The Week regularly refer to recently deceased public figures, few crosswords comment on the nature of the deceased’s demise.

Worth repeating: Merl Reagle’s account of his own and his wife’s struggles to care for Alzheimer’s-afflicted parents, and how that led to a special crossword tournament.

Finally, consciousness researcher David Bor wants to tell you why crosswords are fun.
