Puzzle #11: Extra LETTER
This puzzle’s theme is very meta, in that a letter has been added to the first word of every theme answer to make the second word, and the added letters spell LETTER. Trippy.
I had fun finding these, looking for the longest ones I could, because those seem more interesting to me. Then I checked to see if they seem clueable, which these all did. I went with an adjective-noun formation to add some cohesion to the set.
The SE was the toughest to fill cleanly, I found. CEDE crossing BODE is probably the trickiest spot.
