Solution to last month's Atlantic cryptic crossword (I don't have the unsolved version to link to but here's the solution). The unclued middle horizontal furnishes the rationale for the 2-letter squares.

I really like the Atlantic cryptics. They're one of the main reasons I subscribe. They generally take me a couple of hours to complete, and they are not as exotic as the Guardian or Financial Times puzzles (diabolical British English), which I usually can't solve completely. Does anyone else here work these? Ceptimus?

I used to enjoy cryptics. The only place I could ever find them, though, was in Games magazine and I'm not sure that is still being published. I have to say I had enough trouble fininshing those that I am pretty sure that ones using British English would be right out.
