At last! Someone has taken the time to explain not only how to do cryptic crosswords, but also the answers. Crossword Compiler, Barbara Gettinby, has been compiling crosswords for about 20 years. I have been a fan of hers for the last 8 years. Whenever I get stuck with a cryptic clue, I can look at the straight clue to get some inspiration. If I still can't work out the answer, Barbara has all the answers broken down and explained in the solutions.
