Do this, not that

In addition to the weak effort that somebody was foolish enough to feature on the cover of last week’s paper, the Reader runs a regular crossword written by Ben Tausig, a bona fide professional, who syndicates it to other alt-weeklies, too. Tausig has been constructing puzzles since 2004; he’s a sage mentor, as I found out, as well as a hell of a puzzle maker, and one who’s committed to, after the alt-weekly fashion, raciness and contemporary references. Six dozen of Tausig’s puzzles, including ones that have appeared in these here pages, are collected in the new volume Crosswords From the Underground: 72 Puzzles From Alternative Newspapers. If after picking up a copy you’re jonesing for more, there's more to be found.
