I took inspiration for this grid from the totally boss grid that Kameron Austin Collins did for his latest HIGH:low crossword. (Not a subscriber for that? Sign up, it's free.) But unlike K's impressively wide-open construction (his had only 64 words), the ole Biz Quig had to move a couple black squares to make it a more traditional 70 words. But hey, that's me telling you how the sausages are made. All that matters is: is the puzzle fun? And I say "yes." Hopefully you agree.
