Renowned as the “Sergeant Pepper of cryptic crosswords,” David Astle is the Dictionary Guy on SBS’ Letters and Numbers, a crossword maker for The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, and the Wordplay columnist with Spectrum.
In other words, David Astle is a full-time word nerd.
He’s the author of Cluetopia, Puzzled, Puzzle & Words and Puzzles & Words 2. He has composed Wordwit and Omega for Fairfax, and on the airwaves you can catch his weekly news clue for Radio National’s Sunday Extra with Jonathan Green.
If that’s not enough, he was part of a world conspiracy to invent a new word.
