Adam Fromm is a songwriter/musician from Brunswick, Me., who has been making puzzles “as far back as I can remember.” His first published puzzle appeared in Games magazine in 2000. This one grew out of a geographical curiosity he noticed. Fun fact: Adam is a huge fan of Amazon Prime’s “36-Down,” which he was very happy to include in the grid. — W.S.
