"Better than a repository." - Fill Me In

Eric Berlin’s Puzzlesnacks has been up and running longer than this newsletter, but I haven’t mentioned it as I don’t subscribe myself. Whoops. It’s a $3/month subscription with bite-size variety puzzles, like Rows Gardens, Spirals, and other formats. Eric is now releasing a collection of 20 full-size variety puzzles and is a good Twitter follow for quick puzzles.

A new link today, from Jessica Goldstein. She’s been posting for a few months from a tinyletter emailer that I somehow missed, and recently started a full-blown blog: Cross Angel Mind Freak. Today’s link is the fourth puzzle she’s got up there, and there’s a few dozen more at the tinyletter site.
