I have been waiting nearly all month to present to you today's puzzles.
To start off with, we have a variety sudoku by Clover, a constructor whose praises I have sung before. She's well-known on Cracking the Cryptic for creating puzzles that are quite difficult, until you find the key to the puzzle's logic -- and this key is never too complicated to work out. Do give this sudoku a try, and if you enjoy it, check out Clover's Patreon page, where every month, you will get eight (or more) hand-crafted puzzles that increase in difficulty, for just $2.50 per month.
Then we have an acrostic, one made especially for my local solvers (the rest you should be able to solve it without a hitch). Constructing acrostics was surprisingly not as difficult as I had made it out to be, and I do intend on making more in the future. Hopefully that'll encourage me to read more.
Enjoy! See you next week. --H.A.
