This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 15 Words: 72, Blocks: 33 Missing: {JQVXZ} This is puzzle # 35 for Mr. Blindauer. This is the debut puzzle for Ms. Young.
Jim Horne notes:

The print version of this puzzle varies from the Across Lite version. There is a blank square in the centre as shown here, 18 Across has a longer clue: "With 55-Across, direction indicator (and what to draw in the center of this puzzle)" and there is this mysterious clue for 55 Across: "See 18-Across." Click here to see one particular compass rose.
