September 4, 2015 WSJ Crossword by Elizabeth C. Gorski


Point Pleasant, New Jersey

Hello, dear friends! I hope you’re enjoying this beautiful Labor Day Weekend. We’re at the shore, soaking in the late-summer goodness. This is a quick heads-up to let you know that I have penned the puzzle in this weekend’s The Wall Street Journal.

In addition to the weekly puzzle for Crossword Nation, I enjoy making larger weekend puzzles for other markets. I love rustling up big-and-juicy Sunday-sized puzzles for folks to chomp on.

This puzzle is titled Stir Crazy. It’s perfect for binge-solving with a beer, wine, mojito or (if one must) a Pepto Bismopolitan. You can grab the puzzle here. It’s free, from the good folks at the WSJ.

Ciao and happy solving!

Merl Reagle — Multi-Talented Innovator in the World of Crosswords

I’m shocked by the sudden passing of Merl Reagle, whose unique crossword-writing style and sparkling humor will never be matched. The loss to our community is immeasurable.

Our hearts go out to Merl’s wife, Marie, and the Reagle family.
