Aries Cryptic #5

Back again for Cryptic #5! There are a couple of clues I particularly like in this one, especially 1-Across. I happened upon the definitional part a while back and I've been waiting to make use of it; fortunately the wordplay part lent itself to a decent surface reading. Being a big Bob Dylan fan, the clue for 22-Across kinda wrote itself once I stared at the entry long enough.

Subscriptions are now open for Rows Gardens and Freestyles (weekly puzzles starting January 1st!). For more info and to subscribe, click here

Also, cryptic fans ought to be aware of Patrick Berry's latest installment of The Crypt - I'm currently solving the puzzles, slowly but steadily, savoring every bit of cryptic goodness. Get it while it's hot! And the first two Crypts if you haven't already.

Happy solving!

  1. Thanks - good cryptic. I only knew 1A because Bucky spoke at my college commencement! Lots of good clues. Best was probably 15A, favorite was 22A (but needed every cross to get it!)
