"Better than a repository." - Fill Me In

This week’s ClassiCanadian puzzle is Barb Olson’s 300th. To celebrate, she’s offering a 50% off sale on all purchases. She offers five-puzzle minipacks if you want to test out it out before committing to a subscription.

Richard Allen, who we’ve seen at Spyscape, Universal, Sid’s Grids, and arctan(x)words this year, has a new site up and is the first link today. For now he promises two puzzles a month, one of which will be a meta, and has plans to add a subscription.

The Wall Street Journal is holding a (paywalled) online event this afternoon with Mike Miller, Matt Gaffney, and Mike Shenk. A corresponding event is slated for next Thursday, as well.
