This Saturday sees the launch of Mark Halpin’s annual Labor Day Puzzle Extravaganza. I was introduced to Halpin’s work two years ago, when I helped some friends with the 2014 set. Ever since, my wife and I have been slowly exploring his back catalog (see below), which is deep and full of some of the most elegant word and logic puzzles I’ve ever seen. Read on for links to the LDE — and other good stuff.
