MGWCC #013 -- Friday, August 29, 2008 -- "Stroker Ace"

Ahoy, Fellow Cruciverbalists! Welcome to Week 13 of my crossword contest. If you're new to the contest and would like to enter, please see the site FAQ on the left sidebar for instructions.


Last week's results were covered in the previous post -- scroll down to "Special Report" and read some fine poetry.

Since we have a little extra space this week, let me use it to thank all of you for solving MGWCC during the first three months of what I hope will be a very long run. I've been publishing crosswords for 22 years and this site is the most fun I've had in my entire career, most of that fun due to my interactions with all of you.

I'd also like to especially thank those solvers who've helped promote the site on blogs, by e-mailing it to friends and family, and otherwise generally spreading the word. The number of hits and visitors I'm getting here has increased every week, often substantially between weeks, and that's in large part to the efforts of many of you. For me, this site is a labor of love and I'd like as many people as possible to enjoy it, so please feel free to keep letting others know about its existence.

Nice guy face off; evil guy face back on -- let's get to this week's contest crossword!


This week's contest answer is a two-word phrase with seven letters in its first word and six letters in its second. E-mail it to me at crosswordcontest@gmail.com by Tuesday at noon ET.
