About

Out of Left Field is a weekly cryptic crossword by Joshua Kosman and Henri Picciotto, delivered to subscribers every Thursday by e-mail. For nearly nine years, we were privileged to contribute a cryptic to The Nation, carrying on a puzzling tradition established in 1947 by our predecessor, Frank W. Lewis.

Now we've gone out on our own, but the puzzles will still boast the same inventive deviousness they've had all along. Beginning April 2, a subscription will bring a new crossword direct to your inbox every week, in both .pdf and .puz formats.

Veteran crossword constructor Brendan Emmett Quigley writes: "When you've got maestros like Kosman and Picciotto on your team, you're in good hands. You want humor? You got it. Themes? Naturally! New standards in cryptic forms? Damn right. Will wonders never cease! Put it this way: I know these guys, they're okay. Just give them your money already and tell 'em I sent ya."

If you're new to cryptic crosswords, or you want to see more of our work, you can find sample puzzles and a guide to solving cryptics at our website.
