Well the Guardian was really easy today. This, on the other hand..........first pass I got 6 - but 3 of them were mine! (curiously, 2 of the others were bullfrog's)

OK - about half done and stuck! I'll out it aside for a while, I think.

The 3-letter answers are tricky to find.

@ Syzygy: if you want to discuss anything on the latest Speccie, I will do my best to help you, though I've sent it off without making a copy so it would have to be from memory --can't promise I can give the answer complete with parsing, but certainly feel free to ask questions!

Chrise: if you've done half you're doing quite well, judging by my paltry results after the first round! At the mo I have no idea how to begin to tackle many of them! No admitting defeat yet though................

Hi GK
It's most of the bottom three-quarters done now...HOWEVER quite a lot of them I'm fairly sure are correct, but I have been totally unable to parse.

Still struggling with a lot of the 3-letters words.

Great puzzle. I've got everything (though with several question marks) except for eight of the three-letter words- all of them with only one letter to go by, not surprisingly. Looking forward to the wordplay revelation! Back to the nation of Rumi...

Three threebies to go, but have to run off to work (how dull). You guys are so tricky.

At last just one long one left (AB's 37a of course) plus a handful of "threebies": this is hard work!

I think I must have gone wrong on at least one of 1a, 8a and 10a (most probably the latter) as I'm struggling to get most of the crossers.
