Cryptic crossword puzzles often appear in British literature and are particularly popular in the secrets of murder, where they are part of the puzzle. Colin Dexter`s Inspector Figurale Morse likes to solve cryptic crossword puzzles, and crossword puzzles are often part of the mystery. Colin Dexter himself put crossword puzzles for many years for the Oxford Times and was a crosswort national champion.  In Dorothy L Sayers` short story “The Fascinating Problem of Onkel Meleager`s Will,” Lord Peter Wimsey solves a crossword to solve the riddle, while Agatha Christie`s curtain solution depends on an Othello-themed cross word.  Ruth Rendell used the device in her novel One Across, Two Down.  Among non-criminal writers, crossword puzzles are often found in the works of P. G. Wodehouse and are an important part of the book The Truth About George.  Alan Plater`s 1994 novel Oliver`s Travels (converted into a BBC television series of the same name in 1995) revolves around the crossword puzzle and the search for a missing compiler.  This fills the “bed”, the definition of the index, but as read is clearly a cryptic indication. Another example: it`s a clue to tragical.
This breaks down in the following way. But Astle said anyone could try cryptic crossword puzzles with a little knowledge of how they worked. I was like, I really want to put YouTuber in this puzzle. Anagram notes are marked with an indicator word next to an expression that has the same number of letters as the answer. The indicator tells the solver that there is an anagram that they need to solve to find the answer. Indicators are anagrams before or after letters. In an American crypt, only the words given in the indication are anagrams; In some older puzzles, words that need to be anametized can be included and then anametized. Thus, in this note, the form of closure of the bank to the letters consists of a shorter word (or words) that does not contain repeated letters (an “isogram”) and a longer word or phrase that was created with each of these letters (but not others) at least once, but repeats it as often as necessary. This kind of clue has been described by American designers Joshua Kosman and Henri Picciotto, who write the weekly puzzle for The Nation. The shorter word is usually at least three or four letters, while the target word or term is at least three letters more than the word bank.
