"Printer's Very Devilry" by Araucaria

Clues are of the "Printer's Devil" type: the solution has been removed from a sentence whose meaning is irrelevant, and the remaining letters joined up, punctuation etc. often being altered.

E.g. clue to HESPER - "Company! Steady, men! Shun! Stand at ease (6)," the full sentence being "Company steady men shun; she's pert and a tease".

If you think this type of crossword diabolical, you could be right.
