Puzzle #29: Themeless (by Kyle Dolan)
Excited to run a guest puzzle by Kyle Dolan, an accomplished constructor whose puzzles I've enjoyed in the past. Today's themeless is no exception. I especially like the crossing at 15-A / 4-D — sometimes it's the little things that count. Have fun!
I wrote this puzzle in 2018 and submitted it to a few newspaper venues, with no success. It sat in my files until a couple days ago when I sent it to Sid. He helped me clean up the NE section and tighten up some of the clues. I'm grateful that Sid offered this puzzle a home and for his excellent editorial feedback. I hope you enjoy the puzzle!
