UPDATE: The February 2005 issue of Games has now appeared in my mailbox, and my puzzle is indeed in the issue, on Page 19.
Last summer, I vowed that I would make a run at the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, held each March in Stamford, CT. Along the way, I gained an appreciation of how puzzles are constructed, and have decided to try my hand at creating my own.
The upshot of all of this is the first of what I hope will be many published crossword puzzles. Look for my first byline in the February 2005 issue of Games Magazine.
(The bad news? I can't enter their contests any more.)
