    Hi guys

    Moonstruck – I’m in today but it’s not a set regularity. The editor will have a supply of puzzles and will arrange them according spread of grids, answers, difficulty etc. I may be in again in 3 weeks, or it could be 3 months! You can never predict it.

      Hi Anax,
      I’d had a look at this earlier (after you recommended that one by Alberich I have tried a couple of FT cryptics), but hadn’t realised it was you!
      It’s hard. Only got about 5 answers in. 15a was a beauty!

    Mark, you need a 3 word phrase for written (on the —-) surrounding (it flanks) a 3 letter word for a sheep (in Crosswordland this is either tup, teg, ram or ewe – take yer pick!)
    definition is ‘wild’
