Puzzle #74: Strings Attached (with Christopher Adams)

Hey friends, 

Got a fun collab today with Chris Adams of arctan(x)words. Chris was instrumental in getting this theme set to fit into a grid. With unusual symmetry and some other trickery, we managed to pack a whole lot of theme into the puzzle, and I'm grateful for his efforts to make this one work. We're also grateful for the help from Norah and Brian in helping get this one in shape!

Chris says "i'm very glad to have been able to help with this puzzle, i think it came out well, thank you to will for reining in my weirder tendencies, there's more coming from me very soon, etc. etc." and by etc. he means some very fun stuff indeed!

Puzzle #93: I'm Only One Man (with Norah Sharpe)

 Hi gang, Back with a new themeless after a little hiatus. The puzzle work continues apace! I'm part of a lovely leadership team over at Lil AVC X, along with Rafa Musa, Olivia Mitra Framke, and Sally Hoelscher. We recently finished putting together the team of editors for 2024, which includes Norah Sharpe (under her government name)! This puzzle, like every collaboration with Norah , was a joy to make. Norah says, "The structure of this one was inspired by some of the gridwork that Brian Thomas has been up to lately (see this one and this one ). My favorite clues are 16A, 39A, and 51D. Thanks as ever to Will for having me over. There's only a few days left to send in your applications for the 2024 Lil AVC X roster! Details here . And speaking of Lil, please try our "Happy Hour" midi from earlier this week."   (If OneDrive prompts a log-in, try opening in a private window)   .puz   PDF   Solution Mmm, mini smores cups
