I have just finished #8 and it occurred to me that these puzzles are like the best works of art. I see something deeper each time I look at them!
Good luck, fellow Muggles! I'm happy to give nudges, but only if you're still stuck on Sunday.

Just finished #3. Hard one! Onward! I’m going to milk these as long as I can. So creative and enjoyable.

I finished the grid for #9 last night and figured out the overarching answer just now. I am in awe of Patrick Berry's skill. Truly amazing -- and what a super-fun challenge this was!

Just finished! Had to check on 3 of the 8 puzzles for their "word" answers, but got to the final answer in puzzle 9 with just 5 of the words. Brilliant. Very challenging at times, but still enough success to keep you hooked!

Beautiful!

I did only one or two of the puzzles at a time, so it never felt like a slog.

Though I was often tempted to just keep going, and work straight through to the end.

How does PB do it? (And be thankful he does!)

Finished this fabulous set (minus separate Bonus puzzle - saving that one for later) -- excellent all the way around!
