David Astle is a full-time word nerd. Regular crossword solvers will recognise his initials every Friday in The Age and SMH, short for Don’t Attempt. David also acts as a regular broadcaster on ABC radio Melbourne and the one-time dictionary blokes on SBS’s Letters and Numbers.
He’s the author of such verbal titles as Puzzled, Riddledom, Cluetopia and Wordburger—his most recent endeavour is a new children’s book, David Astle’s Gargantuan Book of Words.
