New York Times solution (September 15, 2013)

Below the fold is the solution to this weekend’s New York Times variety puzzle, a block cryptic by Emily Cox and Henry Rathvon, who in cryptic circles are known as “Hex.”

It’s a good weekend to come here, since Joshua Kosman (“Trazom”) and Henri Picciotto (“Hot”), who are constructors of the weekly cryptic found in The Nation and proprietors of the Word Salad blog took time this week to pay tribute to Hex, and I did likewise.  We’re fortunate to have so much of Hex’s work available to us in so many places and in so many forms, all of which is polished to a lovely sheen.  Read on, and feel free to add your kudos to the comments here or at Word Salad.

Browse around some more, click the “Hex” label, and you’ll find links to much more of their work.  Happy solving, and come back every week!
