A rather spectral cryptic

· By n0hk · Published 16 days ago

I'd like to thank BlueJay - not only for testing this grid (which they've done an exemplary job of), but also being one of the first people to welcome me into this hobby.
Of all the grids I've created, this is certainly one. In an effort to try and focus on cluing things more elegantly I set myself some interesting restrictions when it comes to the clues and fill here. As such, some of the fill was difficult to tackle; but I'd like to think I've managed in an elegant manner. And if not, hopefully I managed to fail in a way that's enjoyable.
