Notepad: This crossword represents the combined effort of puzzlemakers on four continents, collaborating electronically through the Internet newsgroup rec.puzzles.crosswords. The grid was composed and posted by the British puzzle expert Michael Curl. Then over the course of several months more than 30 cryptic crossword enthusiasts from the United States, Canada, Great Britain, South Africa, and Australia contributed 750+ clues from which these 28 were gleaned -- a truly international production!
