Fireball + Onion = one of those exploded-looking onion appetizer thingies, I guess
I have a new crossword out next Wednesday on Peter Gordon's Fireball Crosswords -- which is subscription only, though it's a good deal, at less than 20 cents per puzzle. It's a collaboration with Patrick Blindauer, which we've had in the works on and off for probably over a year now. If you don't want to subscribe, you can still do one of my puzzles, though -- here's my latest Onion crossword, which I forgot to link to when it came out a few weeks ago.
(Download Across Lite to solve one or both of the above.)

The FB I got today was Peter's. Next week maybe?
Yes, it's next week. (I edited the post to reflect this fact.) The e-mail from Peter for Patrick and I to look over the crossword files looked almost exactly like an actual Fireball mailing, and so both of us assumed it had come out already. Sorry for the confusion.
It says something about how inured I am to crosswordese that I had four of the five theme entries before I realized the theme was something more than "phrases missing a sound". As always, some terrific clues (22A, 33A and 11D in particular).
