    CREATE A CROSSWORD WITH ME: Co-construct a puzzle with me for Fireball Newsflash Crosswords. On a mutually agreed-upon Friday (the earlier backer gets first choice of dates), you will get a one-on-one master class on the ins and outs of crossword construction, and you’ll share the byline with me on the puzzle. You also get an Earlybird subscription, lunch or dinner, a Fireball Crosswords baseball cap, and you take with you one autographed copy of every New York Sun crossword book, all three Fireball Crosswords books, and “Hall of Fame Crosswords” (a collection of all 96 of my New York Times crosswords). Warning: that’s 28 books, so it will be heavy. (The total cover price for the books is over $200.) [Backers pay their own way to Great Neck, which is a 35-minute train ride from New York City’s Penn Station, as well as near JFK and LaGuardia airports.]
