Re(5): Listener 4358: The Other Letter by Wan IP: 184.108.40.206 Posted on September 2, 2015 at 07:25:15 AM by John Nicholson
Thank you so much for the kind comments both here and via John Green. It is reassuring to read that a lot enjoyed it as I was made aware on the weekend of publication that some found the endgame a bit frustrating to say the least – one solver becoming quite angry. Although of course I knew that I had set a challenge to parse the clues and narrow down the letter, I honestly thought that the endgame would be a doddle. I expected solvers would initially search for a B before ‘quickly’ having the pdm of realising why the bees were in the puzzle. It seems that is exactly what happened for some, but for others that pdm wasn’t quite so quick. I do empathise with anyone who spent too long looking for birds as I hate grid-staring myself.
