Out of the blue an email with the title “Need to get out more” appeared in my mailbox yesterday.  It was from Anax, and he had decided to kill time waiting for a phone call by writing a guide to the rules which crossword setters use.  Both setters and solvers alike should find this insight into the mind of a crossword setter useful and interesting.  So far he has only written the chapter on anagrams, with other chapters due to be added at irregular intervals.  You can access this guide from the Crosswords page.  Why not have a look now?
