I'm working on writing theme clues a puzzle that has a three-part title to a literary work. Also in the puzzle I have the author's first and last name as separate answers. What's the best way to clue these?
Let's say my puzzle theme and layout was (it's not):
How do I clue? Seems to me that it doesn't make sense to say:
With 34- and 53-across, work by 28- and 46-across
That clue sounds like two different authors, right?
Also, it seems weird to clue ERNEST as:
With 46-across, author of 20-, 34- and 53-across
That clue sounds like three different literary works.
