Clue answers are all six letters long and should be entered clockwise or counterclockwise around the appropriately numbered hexagons. In the finished grid the border letters, starting at the top left corner, form a witchy hexad.

Another fun and clever cryptic from my favorite pair. Very seasonal and very appropriate puzzle name for this duo!

I'm about 50% finished with this one. I enjoy cryptics, but haven't done enough of them recognize all the methods of clue construction, so they definitely give my brain a workout.

I finally got one! Huzzah!

Just posted a little more detail over in WSJ Meta Backdrops. I can see how solving cryptics could help meta solving skills!
