For the first time ever, we've got a contest puzzle (pdf, puz, pdf solution) this week (and it's a vowelless, as you might guess from the title). Once you've solved the puzzle, there's a meta; the meta answer is an author. (The PDF solution file includes a list of the full answers for the curious, though of course it doesn't include the meta answer.)
The theme was inspired by Peter Broda's recent collection of vowelless puzzles, Made Without AEIOU. Peter has graciously offered to donate a copy of the collection for the winner. Send your answer to the email address in the right sidebar by Sunday at noon for a chance to win - a randomly chosen correct entry will win. (If you win and you've already bought a copy of Made Without AEIOU, we'll find another prize for you.) Good luck!
