Hi everyone! I just recently apologized for not posting frequently enough for my taste. But that’s ok. I told you a while back there would be no set schedule for Grid Therapy in the AfterTimes. After 2-3 puzzles with a lag of more than a week I have another one for you three days after the last one. This one is a Free Association puzzle with a little pepper on it so it’s not going to be a super fast or easy one. I hope it’s fair and I hope it’s enjoyable.
Here’s some fun news from my world: it looks like next week’s American Values Crossword Club puzzle will be by yours truly. It’s not set in stone but it looks good to go for August 19th. If you are not familiar with this subscription puzzle, I think you should be. I subscribe and highly recommend you do too. It’s reviewed each week on Crossword Fiend and is consistently one of the best puzzles out there. For $20 a year, you get a weekly high-quality puzzle that I would never ever say is consistently better than the New York Times puzzle. Because why would I say a thing like that?
In any case, today’s puzzle is not published by anyone but me, and I am grateful that there are some of you out there who solve and appreciate my cruciverbal offerings to the universe. I hope this one pleases you. Be well.
I'm a husband, father, psychologist, musician, and crossword constructor living in Catonsville, MD. My puzzles have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times and its syndicates, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Andrews McMeel Universal Syndicate, the American Values Club Crossword, and crossword apps such as the Redstone Crossword Puzzle App on iOS and Google Play. All of that means I've been published in every newspaper in the United States and many others around the world. And now I've been published here at Grid Therapy, which allows me the freedom to let who I am shine through. I hope you enjoy your time here on the crossword couch! I'd love to hear from you if you have comments or suggestions. If you're interested in having a custom crossword puzzle created for your event or organization, email me at drtrent (at) gmail.com.
