Paul has given us a themed puzzle this week and, I have to say, my heat sank when I realised what it was! I know next to nothing about this person or his "creations".
Still, Google was able to provide a list so then it was just a matter of matching up the titles with the wordplay and enumeration.
FOI was 9a but my first themed answer was 1d, but I only got that with the help of a word-search engine.
Some very devious cluing by Paul should provide quite a challenge for most solvers, at least that was the case for me.
If you do get stuck, there is at least one anagram in both the downs and acrosses.
8d for example, has "encourage" and "smooth" that might not be too problematic but I wonder how many will see "commonplace"? I know Geeker, out American friend, generally has no problems with UK centric words and phrases but I'll be interested to see what he makes of that.
The only clues I can't parse are 22a and, ironically, 7d!
COD - A tie between 25a and 17d.
Thanks to Paul for a very challenging workout:-)
As always, if you get stuck - don't hesitate to ask for a hint.
