My new New York Times puzzle is up

Circular Reasoning, a new puzzle I designed and wrote for the op-ed section of the New York Times, is up!

My brief companion essay is here, and the introductory essay by novelist Arthur Phillips, who introduced me to the editors, is here.

It’s meant to be hard and yet amusing enough that you’ll want to share it with a friend or family member and work it together as part of your long holiday weekend.  Did my best, anyway.  Enjoy!
