Title Phoenix
Setter Rasputin
Series Enigmatic Variations
Number 1023
Date 17/06/2012
Grid 1313 barred grid with 180 symmetry. Twenty-seven squares in the centre of the grid are shaded.
Preamble In PHOENIX, eight thematic answers are clued without definition. Any clashes in the shaded area must be resolved to reveal a proposal as to how to finish off the puzzle. The subsidiary indications in clues, other than those which enter the shaded area or are thematic, lead to answers with an extra letter. In clue order, these spell out an over-riding instruction that solvers should obey. Chambers (2011) is recommended.
