About

What's This All About?

Rejoice crossword lovers. Three of your favorite constructors have teamed up for some weekly Sunday fun. Masters Emily Cox and Henry Rathvon alongside loose cannon Brendan Emmett Quigley are the brains behind The Hub Crossword (formerly Crooked Crosswords, and still appearing in the Boston Globe and Hartford Courant).

Don't I Recognize You From Somewhere?

It's likely you have. Emily and Henry have been boggling brain cells since 1977, and in only their second year of puzzle making, launched the Globe Sunday Crossword. Brendan jumped on board in 2015, but he's been crossing words since 1996. That's 63 combined years of torturing the English language and making people laugh with inventive cluing and grid work. If these three were a single person, they'd be near retirement, but there's no end in sight, at least not yet.

Show But Don't Tell Me.
