Title Slummer
Setter Sabre
Series The Listener
Number 3367
Date 20/07/1996
Grid 1313 barred grid with 180 symmetry.
Preamble The thirteen unclued lights are of a type, and visited by a travelling knight. Each day's travel finishes on the first letter of an unclued light, and the following day's travel starts from the last letter of that light (with the exception that the first day starts in the top left-hand corner, and the last day finishes in the bottom right-hand corner). Each day's travel is a succession of knight's moves; the journeys are clued in the correct sequence. The central row in the finished diagram provides a vaguely relevant three-word phrase from ODQ (2nd Edition). All clues are normal, but across and down answers appear in the diagram with a misprint of exactly one letter. Chambers (1993) is recommended; however, the combination form at Day 4 is not explicitly listed, one proper name is only given etymologically,a dn 2D (in OED) occurs under a variant spelling.
