Crossword Magazine IP: 188.8.131.52 Posted on April 5, 2016 at 09:19:45 PM by Chris Lancaster
I see from the front page of the latest edition of Brian Head's Crossword magazine ('The original crossword club', as Roddy used to call it), that it seems it is going to cease publication next February.
Brian doesn't seem to give any reason why this is happening, but it would be a great shame to see the magazine go west after what's literally decades. There are only really five outlets for barred thematics (Listener, IQ, EV, Magpie, Crossword), so the loss of Crossword means a reduction of approximately 10% in the number of such puzzles that will appear each year. Perhaps there is somebody (or somebodies) out there who could see that the original Crossword Club continues?
