  TUESDAY PUZZLE — Just in case you missed it, there is a note for this puzzle that says: “Each Across answer in this puzzle consists of a word spelled forward and another spelled backward. It’s up to you to determine which clue goes with which word.”

  It was that second sentence that got me. Eventually, I got back on the puzzle horse and finished, but this one, by Alex Eaton-Salners, seemed tougher than an average Tuesday. In fact, the theme was so clever and some of the entries were tricky enough that this could have been a Wednesday or a Thursday, in my opinion. As always, your mileage may vary.

  Oh, and a secret tip to help bring this puzzle back to relative Tuesday simplicity: Start out by solving using the Downs only. It’s not that most of the Across entries are hard; you just have much more than a 50-50 chance of getting the correct one if you have enough letters in the slot first.

  What am I talking about? I’ll expand on that more in the theme section.

  In general, the Across clues were trickier than the Down clues for reasons explained below. Here is a selection of Down clues that might benefit from explanation.

  4D: “Drawing things?” are not art supplies in this puzzle, they’re MAGNETS, which attract, or “draw,” magnetized things toward them.

  7D: I had CLAPS before SLAPS for “Gives a hand?”

  8D: The meaning of SOPHIST changes a bit depending on the time period one is talking about. In ancient Greece, the SOPHISTs were a school of itinerant teachers and philosophers. More recently, and more loosely, they are considered to be anyone who argues using fallacious or illogical arguments.

  24D: You can put a question to someone, so I suppose that if you ask the question again, you are REPUTting it. I would consider that crossword glue, though, and probably wouldn’t use it in a puzzle.

  Each of the Across entries in Mr. Eaton-Salners’s puzzle has two clues and, hence, two possible answers. Each pair of answers is one word when read from left to right, and a different word when read from right to left. As you might expect, I got my first entry wrong.

  I broke into the puzzle at 21A, where the clue was “Entertainer Marx / Entertainer Winfrey.”

  Easy, right? I plunked in HARPO, figuring that I had a 50 percent chance of being correct. I wasn’t. The answer in that slot was OPRAH.

  It soon became evident that solving many of the Down entries would be to my benefit. Had I solved 6D’s “___ Alto, Calif.” first, I would have gotten the O I needed to know that OPRAH was the correct answer.

  Some of these double clues and answers seemed tough for a Tuesday. I would never have guessed GATEMAN for “Guard” at 52A, although NAME TAG for “It might say ‘Hello.” was a bit easier. Similarly, I would not have correctly guessed LAMINA at 58A, which made its pairing, ANIMAL, a tough guess.

  I really liked the trick to this puzzle and it felt relatively fresh; I don’t think we’ve seen a theme like this in quite a while. The constraints Mr. Eaton-Salners put (and REPUT) on himself meant sacrificing the quality of some of the fill. It’s not so much that the fill is bad (although there’s a good amount of glue here), it’s just unexciting.

  So, does that mean this was a “bad” puzzle, whatever that may mean? This is where I believe it would be a good idea to haul out the Scales of Cruciverbal Justice. [Cue upbeat, anthemlike music].

  This puzzle was published pretty quickly. It’s been less than a year since I wrote it, and only about nine months since I got the always thrilling “Crosswords — Yes” email from the editorial crew.

  Over time, I’ve noticed that puzzles that depart from common theme types often make it into print much faster than more traditional grids. So if you’re looking for speedy publication, my advice is to push the boundaries of originality and novelty!

  To build the grid, I started by finding and placing some “long” Across entries into a promising configuration. There aren’t too many valid English “semordnilap” (words that have different meanings when read forward and backward) with more than five letters, so my options were pretty limited.

  Next, I slowly, painfully filled in each section while referring to two different word lists — my normal list and a special one that contained only semordnilap. As is typical with highly constrained stunt puzzles, I frequently reached dead ends and had to tear up what I had already created. While filling, I also had to avoid words whose reverse I had already put somewhere else.

  An unfortunate side effect of the paucity of longer semordnilap was that I had to keep most of the Across slots at five letters or fewer. I really wanted to incorporate more longer semordnilap, but it was too constraining on the rest of the fill.

  I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a published New York Times puzzle with only 10 entries longer than five letters. It would be interesting to know if that’s a record. Likewise, XWord Info tracks only puzzles with the longest average word length. I'd be curious to know where this one stacks up against other puzzles with a very low average word length.

  Almost finished solving but need a bit more help? We’ve got you covered.

  Warning: There be spoilers ahead, but subscribers can take a peek at the answer key.
