Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

We're delighted to be publishing this zingy and wide-open themeless by the incomparable Wyna Liu. We think you'll find it very challenging!

Wyna Liu is an associate puzzle editor at The New York Times and assistant editor at American Values Club Crossword. Her puzzles have appeared in the New Yorker, NYT, and AVCX, among other venues. When she's not thinking about puzzles, she makes jewelry, tensegrity objects, and enjoys learning fabrication techniques like machining and neon. Find her work at wynaliu.com, and find Wyna on Twitter at @wynaliu and on Instagram at @wynaliu.

When you're done solving, check out Diary of a Crossword Fiend for a write-up and discussion, every Friday after an Inkubator puzzle is published. For general updates, follow us on Twitter at @InkubatorXWords, and visit our website. Thanks to all of our subscribers for your continuing support, feedback, and kindness!

Coming up next, on March 2: an achievement for the unlocking from Rebecca Goldstein.

All best,
Laura, Tracy, Stella, and Brooke
