Get your free Generalist crossword compilation

By Prospect Team  


In 1995, Tom Johnson—aka Didymus— compiled the Generalist for the first time.

Before beginning he was told by the editors that if they received more than a dozen correct entries, they would consider the puzzle to have been too easy. The principle has remained the same since.

To celebrate Prospect‘s 20th anniversary, Tom has chosen some of his favourite puzzlesone from each yearto include in a unique compilation. All of them are reproduced exactly as they originally appeared.
