Happy 2023! The title says this is a themeless puzzle, which is slightly misleading, but I don’t make the rules. Actually I totally do make the rules, since this is my website. Themeless it is!

Since my last puzzle here, I’ve been busy making stuff like Full Moon Albums and New Year Zone and a bunch of Wikipedia pages. I also had a guest freestyle (huh, maybe that’s a better name than themeless) puzzle over on Tim Croce’s blog Club 72. Oh, and I also had a puzzle last week in some newspaper from New York. Check these things out if you haven’t!

But first, enjoy this crossword! And don’t forget to look both ways!
