We're delighted to be publishing this playful and unique puzzle by the talented constructor Barbara Lin. We think you'll find it moderately challenging.
Barb works as an engineer, and lives with her husband in suburban Philadelphia. She has been constructing crosswords since 2019 and has had puzzles published in a number of venues. This is her second puzzle for the Inkubator.
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!
Check your in-boxes on August 5 for Rebecca Goldstein's latest release!
Until then, stay safe and enjoy these summer days,
Laura, Tracy, Juliana, and Stella
