This is a "vwllss" puzzle -- while the clues look normal, you have to write in your entries with all their vowels removed. For example, if the clue is [Tyrannosaurus rex and Stegosaurus, for two examples] and you have five squares to fill, the correct response might be DNSRS (for "dinosaurs").
As a courtesy, no entry contains the letter 'Y' anywhere in it, either as a consonant or a vowel. As an additional courtesy to those who are new to this variety puzzle format, I've also indicated whether the expected answer is multiple words long (and how many words it is, if so) or if it is hyphenated.
Inspiration for this puzzle comes from Frank Longo's (or should I say "Frnk Lng's") vwllss puzzles for Fireball Crosswords.
Happy New Year! It sure is off to a start, isn't it... Regardless of how this week has treated you, Puzzle 8 is here for you and ready for solving. Hopefully its release on January 6, 2020 still falls within the scope of "on or around January 5, 2020."
Thanks to Will Nediger of the ever-excellent Bewilderingly Puzzles for his advice on bringing this puzzle to fruition. If you like what you're seeing on my site, I owe a lot of it to Will's example, so go take a look at his!

Next puzzle will be out in about two weeks. A new puzzle every other week, at the start of the week, seems like the most tenable long-term release schedule for the foreseeable future; will keep you posted if that changes. Till then!
P.S. Who else is excited for the Jeopardy: Greatest of All Time special event? Starts tomorrow, with hourlong episodes, at 8-9 pm E.S.T. on ABC (that's after the regular show, at least for fellow East Coasters).
