Crossword Puzzle - February 2016

I said in December that there would be no more monthly crossword puzzles. Nobody had asked me about them in quite some time, never mind actually entered. When I announced in my monthly newsletter (P.S. you can get a free book if you sign up) that I was saying goodbye to the monthly feature, nobody seemed to notice.

If you've been missing them, well then, you're in luck! Last week, I received an e-mail from a reader who'd just discovered me and my books, and said that they'd been browsing my blog, and couldn't wait for the next crossword puzzle.

Well, dear reader, your wish is my command! Simply complete the following crossword puzzle, and e-mail me your answers to graham@grahamdowns.co.za before Tuesday, 22 March 2016. That's the date on which I will be posting the answers. If you were the first person to send me the correct answers before that date, I'll mention you in that blog post.

Sound simple enough? Well, what are you waiting for? Go!
