Stumper redux

Good news for Newsday Saturday Stumper fans, in an e-mail from crossword editor Stan Newman:

Beginning in late spring there’ll be an occasional Saturday with “the ‘good old meanness’ of before.” Stan is also thinking about creating a weekly non-Newsday puzzle of Stumper difficulty.

And if enough people are interested, he’ll create Stumpers of the Year collections as .puz files, $14.88 a year. The explanation of the price: Stan began with Newsday in 1988; the collections will begin with 2014. If you’re interested, send an e-mail to with “Stumpers of the Year” in the subject line.
