1. March Extra Competition

The March Extra competition with a Middlemarch themed grid by Sirius and clued by Puck was won by Max Jackson of Oxford. Excellent solving!

This was a challenging puzzle as befits an Extra. Puck managed to include a large number of references to Middlemarch (possibly based on Coventry) by George Eliot (honoured by the statue in Nuneaton – see title photo). The difficulty of clues was increased by multiple definitions and several subtractive anagrams. The photo was laterally inverted for reasons of composition rather than any cryptic message.
3. April Competition

The April competition with clues by Nutmeg to an Isaac Asimv yhemed grid by Elijah wqs won by Robbie Etherington of Kenilworth. Excellent solving!
