Interview with Paul Coulter

I've been doing interviews with some of today's most prolific crossword puzzle constructors. Some have not been at this game for that long but seem to be able to pump out puzzle after puzzle at an astonishing rate.

My first interviewee is Paul Coulter

BONUS: Paul has provided one of his unpublished puzzles (see link at end of interview).

Crossword Scraper

Some crossword puzzle sites no longer offer puzzles in Across Lite (.puz) format. Many solvers do not like the Javascript option. What to do? Look no further than the Crossword Scraper browser extension, available for both Chrome and Firefox.

The extension allows you to pull up a Javascript page, then click on the extension's icon (it's a small, black "down arrow" icon). You are then given a choice of saving the puzzle in .puz, .jpz or .pdf formats. Brilliant!
