This week’s crossword is the fifth in our series by wunderkind constructor Chris King, a student at the University of South Carolina. He did his research for this one, finding a feature of the local landscape that’s amenable to symmetrical themed entries. It includes a nice twist, which I won’t reveal here, that’ll be familiar to devotees of puzzledom’s finer venues.
This puzzle is the last in our series. I hope you’ve enjoyed them; it’s been a great run. I’d like to thank our many talented constructors, both here and afar, and the solvers who wrote in with comments and suggestions. Happy puzzling!
