Interview with Half-Century Constructor Lou Sabin
Today I'm delighted to publish an interview with Lou Sabin, a prolific New York Times crossword constructor of at least 137 puzzles, 108 during the pre-Shortz era and 29 under Will Shortz's editorship. Lou is also one of the few constructors to have published in The Times for more than 50 years! To read the interview, click here or on the Pre-Shortzian Constructor Interviews tab above, then scroll down. If you'd like to read more about Lou, see this 2009 Wordplay article by XWord Info's Jim Horne and this 2011 profile by John Saccenti, "The Puzzling Pastime of Creating Crosswords."
