I’m very pleased to announce that on January 3, 2011, I will be stepping into the formidable, size-12 shoes of Jim Horne and Patrick Merrell, who have done an excellent job of discussing the New York Times Crossword puzzle for the past few years on the Wordplay blog.

This is a new adventure for me, and I am thrilled to be a part of the New York Times team.

I sincerely thank the entire puzzle community for their support and friendship, and even if you are not a puzzle solver, I hope you will come join the party!

    I’m happy to learn you’ve been named to succeed Messrs. Horne and Merrill, come the new year…may you do at least as well as these two gentlemen of Wordplay in the hallowed pages of the Grey Lady!
    Happy Holiday’s

    I am so looking forward to making Word Play a regular part of my day. Now to carve out a notch in time – perhaps I will be getting up a wee bit earlier?
    Congratulations, Girlfriend!

    Don’t be excessively modest about those big shoes to fill. Your feet are quite large in their own right.
