Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

We're delighted to be bringing you yet another debut tonight, by emerging constructor Emma Oxford. We think you'll find it lightly challenging!

Emma is a graduate student in particle physics who has long been solving crosswords but only began writing them about a year ago. She is a frequent poster on the XWord Muggles Forum under the username damefox and eventually hopes to construct meta crosswords. Outside of crosswords and physics, Emma is a fan of baking, running, jigsaw puzzles, reading, keeping her cat away from the houseplants, and social distancing.

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!

If you're looking for more puzzles (many free) to solve during this time, we recommend friend-of-Inkubator Matt Gritzmacher's Daily Crossword Links, an emailed roundup of links to pretty much every crossword published on every platform each day.

Coming up next, on April 23: a sign of the times from Martha Kimes.

All best,
Laura and Tracy
