Welcome to Poins’ Crosswords. My puzzles were first
published by Neil Shepherd on his popular site ‘Free Crosswords
Online’ where he was kind enough to describe me as a ‘talented
setter’ whose clues are ‘fair, concise and elegant and which
make for good surface reading’. Since then my work has appeared
on ‘Enigmatist Crosswords’, on the website of the Northern
Echo and in the Morning Star. In 2010 a couple of thematic puzzles were
published in the prestigious 1 Across magazine and in November of this
year I made my debut in the Independent.
On the Crosswords page you will find a
collection of cryptic puzzles all free for you to print off
and enjoy at your leisure. A new crossword appears each week.
