    With very many apologies, the grid for Atlas’ puzzle this month is incorrect (we’ve printed a duplicate of Radler’s). Download the correct grid…

    Because not everyone will see this, we will print the correct grid in next month’s magazine (making six puzzles) and extend the prize deadline by a month, so July will see two prize puzzles.

    Soon came to realise there was a problem but good to be able to go somewhere where I might find some info’n, well done Hamish! I agree with your comments about the blurb for the Boatman Genius, I’ve read it only 3 times so far and am no nearer understanding what I’m supposed to be doing. Trust your health continues to improve,

    I really enjoyed ACE by Atlas as there were lots of clues with great surfaces my favourite was Inhaler because of the Bill Clinton reference. If I remember correctly I had a few false starts at the jigsaw even though at that stage I had solved 3/4 of the clues. So having an incorrect grid didn’t actually hold me up. I was aware of a paraphrase (a slightly rude version) of the perimeter quote.
    Pairs by Radler had a superb clue for equaliser. I wondered if Chalicea was going to omit a different letter in each clue in Omissions. Perhaps that is asking too much of a compiler. I particularly liked the extremely succinct clues such as angry buccaneer and destroy peace. I was well defeated by Cullen but pleased with the few clues I did solve.
