Hello, everyone! This is the first post of the Pre-Shortzian Puzzle Project blog. The blog is designed to keep the entire crossword community up to date on the progress of this project and to provide interesting commentary about the puzzles as litzing continues. I will provide frequent updates on the project's progress, highlight newly litzed pre-Shortzian puzzles, and discuss interesting pre-Shortzian entries. In addition, each month will feature a new litzer. To learn more about the featured litzer, just click on the Litzer of the Month link. To learn about all the litzers, go to the Meet the Litzers page, where mini-biographies will soon be posted. For more information about the Pre-Shortzian Puzzle Project in general, see the About the Project page.
