Thrilled to announce that the 15×15 crosswords I’m editing for Andrews McMeel Universal launched on Monday (February 26)! Puzzles are available online, and they will soon start appearing in The Philadelphia Inquirer, The San Francisco Examiner, The Orange County Register, and other print and online sources.
These Puzzle Society crosswords are distinct from the Timothy Parker Universal crosswords. Exciting to see a major syndicator invest in launching a whole new line of crosswords! David reports that the difficulty level will be pitched to medium, with a Monday-to-Friday ramping of difficulty in the themed puzzles. The Saturday and Sunday crosswords will be themeless, again at the medium level.
Constructors now have another venue where they can submit their work. Andrews McMeel Universal will pay $110 per 15×15 puzzle.
