14 people have solved last week's puzzle. Haven't solved it yet? Here's an easier version. Send your solutions to glmathgrant[at]gmail[dot]com within the next week to appear on the solvers list and be recognized for your puzzle prowess. Good luck, solvers!

Reader Ryan Faley wanted me to point you to his new blog, inspired by mine. In the coming weeks, it should be filled with wordplay, but right now it only has one puzzle: a Pent Words. Yep, it's the same Ryan Faley who wrote the excellent Pent Words puzzle I published as Wordy Wednesday #25.5. This Pent Words is also very excellent. Do you know a "Fiery feline from the Sonic series", or a five-letter word for "Heroes character with technopathy"? If not, don't fret; he grants you explicit permission to look them up! Have fun, and submit your solutions to him, not me! :)

Insert a different letter of the alphabet into each of the 26 empty boxes in the fifth column and into each of the 26 empty boxes in the ninth column to form a word of six or more letters reading across. All the letters in each row are not necessarily used in forming the word, but you will form only one word that uses the two empty boxes in each row.
There's no neat “final answer” for this one; to earn credit on the solvers list, just send a list of the 26 words. There also won't be an easy version next week; all solvers within the next two weeks get credit for a two-star solve.
