Listen to creator of world’s hardest crossword speak with Georgey Spanswick

Mark Breman, author and professional crossword compiler, has been speaking with the BBC about creating the world’s hardest crossed.

Breman, a client of author PR agency Palamedes PR, was chatting with present Georgey Spanswick on popular evening show Georgey Tonight, which is broadcast on all 40 regional BBC radio networks.

He explained how he came to devise the fiendish 64-clue grid, which is said to be 100 times harder than the usual cryptic crosswords found in the UK’s national newspapers and is considered so challenging that even professional crossword compilers reckon it will take two years to crack.

His interview rounded off a fantastic week of media exposure, including news stories about the hardest crossword in the print and online editions of the Daily Mail, Daily Mirror and Daily Telegraph, as well as on MSN.  Much of this publicity can be found elsewhere on our Latest Publicity pages.

Marc also spoke about his new novel, The Foggiest Notion – a witty and surreal adventure inspired by the mind-bending world of cryptic crosswords. You can learn more on his  website MarcBreman.London.
