Diwali is round the corner, so I thought of doing a giveaway for my readers as a little firework to celebrate.
Enter a simple contest, and you could win a copy of one of the best books I've read this year: Afrit's Armchair Crosswords, a vintage collection of crosswords set by Afrit. [Read my review of the book.]
The contest is open worldwide. Yes, even the mystery visitor from Bermuda on Colonel Gopinath's blog can participate.
Answer these two questions:
What was Afrit's real name?
Solve this clue by Afrit:
Pretty long weapon, but for a knight it should be a lot longer (5) L___E
