  1. SPOILER ALERT:

    Two examples of how this week’s themed clues work:

    Examples …
    Back:
    11A “Woods on the green sort of pie?”
    “Woods on the green?”
    00: TIGER
    -1: SHFDQ
    -2: RGECP
    -3: QFDBO
    -4: PECAN a “sort of pie.”

    Forward:
    12A: “Clammy Jordan kibbutz party vaunted person”
    “Clammy JorDAN Kibbutz party”
    00: DANK
    +1: EBOL
    +2: FCPM
    +3: GDQN
    +4: HERO “vaunted person”.

  2. SPOILER ALERT:

    The published result omits the interim pre-transposition solutions. Here they are …

    11A TIGER; 12A DANK; 3D CEIL; 5D HEAR; 6D OPEN; 22D BANJO; 25D STEP; 27D LIAR; 29D KEPI

  3. Is there still a pool room, or at least DA Gold for today’s DA?
    I wonder what two words would provide the longest example of today’s *.

  4. Peter from Perth: there’s some interesting results if the letter shifts aren’t restricted to 4. Shifts by (say) 13, and reversal of the alphabet (ABC=ZYX) both make for some interesting results
