Hello puzzling friends.
First, a quick apology: I'm behind on Puzzle 9 results being sent out to the randomly drawn winners. That info will be coming soon, I promise, but there are a lot of balls being juggled under the hood over here behind the scenes, when we're not busy mixing metaphors.
Second: Puzzle Ten is nearly finished, which means the METAPUZZLE is on the horizon. It will use all ten previous puzzle answers in a hopefully surprising way (anyone figured it out yet?), and should be released later this week.
