I think I might owe some of you an apology

A year ago today, to celebrate Darwin Day 2006, I published a Darwinian Cryptic Crossword.

I thought today would be a suitable day to publish the solution. Unfortunately, the only copy of the answers was held on my dear old Psion Organiser, which gave up the ghost several months ago. So I've just had to solve the crossword myself—and it was ridiculously difficult.

Sorry about that.

You can find a link to the solution by following the above link.

I still think 6-down was a bloody clever clue, though!

Oh, Happy Darwin Day, by the way!

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
