I warn you, it's pretty difficult

In case I have any neocon New York Sun readers in my audience, I should note (as mentioned in a comment by Orange) that today's crossword puzzle is by me, and features my first successful attempt at stacking 15-letter entries. It will also be available online in a few weeks.

UPDATE: Eric Berlin informs me via IM (as does Toonhead in the comments) that the New York Sun puzzles are no longer on a three-week delay, so you can solve my crossword right now, if you like. The puzzle is here (right-click and save); it requires Across Lite, a free crossword program downloadable here. And if you missed my last crossword in the Sun (from January), here it is.

Hey, cool. Post a link to it when it goes online.

Oh, I should clarify: NY Sun no longer does the 3-week delay thing with its puzzles. You can get them from their website using this convenient calendar-ly formatted page: http://www.fleetingimage.com/wij/xyzzy/05-nys.html

Great stuff. Solved in 14:13, so it was quite tough.

Just a bit under 12 min. for me. I almost hesitate to admit getting 56 across with no letters.
