THAT CROSSWORD HAS WORDS ON IT
(click here for a PDF version)
Making crosswords with Crossfire is totally awesome! I used a cheat called “Print Screen” to get around the inability to save, but if you think I should make plain ol' crosswords more often (or maybe try my hand at a meta crossword?), donating a $50 copy of this software would allow me to be less guilt-ridden and get additional features. You would get my eternal thanks for it, too, which is nice.

For your answer to this puzzle, submit the long unclued entries above.

3 LETTERS: Masquerade; ____ grecque; ____ and a leg; "Air ____"; Certain irregular past-tense verb; Lacking brightness; Record movie dialogue, perhaps; Freudian word; Australian bird; Dead ___; Fraction of a joule; Medium strength?; "The ____ Side"; XV/V; Rage; Speed abbr.; One way to make pictures of inside the body; Bite; "___ Always Right"; One with whom you might interact in an RPG; Frequently, poetically; Nocturnal hunter; Mouse ___; Golf term; Knock; ___ race; Flokati ___; Droop; Sailor; Piece of advice; Thurman of "Pulp Fiction"; Periods of 12 mos.

WORDY WEDNESDAY BONUS!
Last week's Wordy Wednesday was made using software called Crossfire. The full version costs $50; I'm not yet confident enough in my ability to actually get a crossword published to justify getting it for professional purposes with my own money, which is why last week I suggested donating a copy. I do have some crossword theme ideas I'd like to try, including at least one meta, so you might see something interesting from me (here or elsewhere) if you do. Here's a PDF of another crossword I made using the demo of Crossfire, a simple 10x10 puzzle designed for use as part of a magic trick. I now offer this puzzle to my blog's readers as a bonus. Any amateur magicians (if any of those happen to be among my audience) who wish to use this puzzle for their own purposes should open the ODT file and change the name and date in 1-Across to their liking. Any professional magicians will need to note that the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial 3.0 United States License under which all of my puzzles on this blog are released precludes commercial use, and negotiate something with me. Even if you're not interested in performing cheesy card magic, though, I hope you will enjoy solving the puzzle. :)

I would like to thank Ginger Fikes for donating a copy of the Crossfire software which I used to make this crossword as well as Wordy Wednesday #18. This is a meta crossword, meaning there's more to do than just solve the crossword answers, but you have to figure out what (veterans of Matt Gaffney's Weekly Crossword Contest will be intimately familiar with the concept). The Wordy Wednesday answer is a 10-letter proper noun.

A NEW APPROACH TO "BIBLE ATLAS GOOSE THIGH"?
Yeah, I know this is irrelevant to this post, but this blog's become irrelevant enough with its dearth of logic puzzles, so what harm would more irrelevance do?

I have no idea how many of my readers share my passing interest in card magic, but I made this post in January (back when my readership was at zero due to my lack of puzzles, but I didn't know where else to put it) proposing a variant of the classic "Bible Atlas Goose Thigh" card trick where instead of dealing the pairs of cards onto the pairs of letters one by one, the performer mixes up the cards so that the pairs of cards fall onto the pairs of letters when dealt in a natural order. First of all, some person in Russia has cited this blog post as a reference for his article on this very same trick; a link to it is in the comments on my post. I can't read Russian, but if you're interested in learning the Russian mnemonics for this trick, now you can. :)

Also, I recently stumbled upon this webpage while researching an unrelated card trick. In the section on Mutus Nomen Cocis Dedit, the author writes: "A fairly elaborate, but clever, variation can be found in J.N. Hilliard, Greater Magic (1938), pp. 120-128. In this version the pairs are not gathered up but simply scooped together and genuinely shuffled, then re-dealt to the table consecutively, not according to the familiar pattern. In spite of these two modifications the mind-reader succeeds in divining the thought-of pair or pairs in the usual way." Does this mean my idea has already been done? I've heard rumors that, before the Internet existed, budding magicians would bury themselves in magic books at their libraries; might this book exist at a local library?
