Constructor's Comments"Triple Play" is one of my favorite 15xs after 22 years of published puzzle construction.
Each of the five theme entries has two words. The first word, a famous person's (name ending with a double letter), and the second word, beginning with that same letter, form recognizable but misspelled phrases.
For me, puzzle construction evolved from a skittish attempt into a passionate pursuit!
The joy of awakening to a publish date—the thought that that day, scores of folks, pen or pencil at the ready, will be poring over cogent clues, trying to solve what came from my brain, is . . . is . . . well, there's nothing quite like it.
