David Tossman’s Crossword Webskite
I have been perpetrating cryptic crosswords for the NZ Listener since 1997.
In 2015, in a sustained burst of untoward enthusiasm, I put together and published a book of collected Listener crosswords.
This book, How to Cook Little Fish (3), is available through most good bookshops nationwide.
The book features plain-language explanations for every one of its 2935 clues. The explanations were written with the hope that they will help recruit new solvers and thus continue to sustain their setter.
For current puzzles see the freely accessible cryptic crossword answers and explanations on the Noted website.
See verso.net.nz for answers to current Listener puzzle clues (revealed individually, no spoilers).
The complete solutions and explana-tions for all clues are published weekly online (simultaneously with the release of the print edition) on the Listener's distractions pages of the Noted website.
