I'm trying to find a book I remember from my childhood, of various mazes with different gimmicks and themes. I would have first read it around the mid or late 90's, and it seemed pretty new at the time, so it was probably published around that time or maybe a bit earlier. It was a children's book...

Despite being urged by the completion of two recent sequences, I still can't think of one...
CCCC: Beef with a random guy (5)

@Sphinx I looked at the answer and that's interesting, I own a different maze book by the same author. I loved mazes more back then

@Stiv quite so

@oAlt fig=trifle is not in my vocab (or any other cab I possess)
@AncientSwordRage Same. I just saw it on Wiktionary
I know it chiefly from dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/not-care-give-a-fig … which IIRC I first came across in Shakespeare
@msh210 etymonline.com/word/fig is of insterest
@AncientSwordRage indeed; thanks
ahh after y'all had explained it I thought it was familiar
> And it gets to the point
You can't stand anymore,
Bring it to us,
We won't give a fig.
We'll tell you

@Stiv go against the tide anagram
@AncientSwordRage Google seems to be telling me that that's from the Hitchhiker radio fits?
@msh210 yeah it is
I remembered the last line, and have vague memories of 'fig' being what rhymed with 'pig'
12:12 PM
@oAlt Yep!
CCCC: Handle this old sty within the barriers (4)

I like to put words in my bookshelf. This is a very special bookshelf though, because books don't fit in there. My bookshelf has 3 layers, and different words can fit on different layers. Here are some examples: Bottom Layer Middle Layer Top Layer STATE COUNTRY FLAG YELLOW BROWN BLACK ...

This is from "Symbolic Logic, part 1 and part 2", by Lewis Carroll, edited by W.W. Bartley (1977), page 362: (1) A man can always master his father; (2) An inferior of a man's uncle owes that man money; (3) The father of an enemy of a friend of a man owes that man nothing; (4) A man is always per...

@oAlt Is this RUSTIC (country)? From R (king) + U (you) + STIC(-k) (stay, expecting something in return)
5:11 PM
Why is k something in return?
@Ankoganit Maybe expecting the k in return implies that "stick" is not finished
@Stiv but either way, not the intended answer
Since I'm about to sleep, I guess it won't hurt to give a little nudge toward the answer
@oAlt huh, I guess that could make sense
Since I said I had no clue ideas coming to mind, you can probably guess what I was thinking when I was inspired by Jafe's clue
@Ankoganit My interpretation was 'missing the last letter'
Right
5:41 PM
Oh this is K(king)+U(you)+WAIT (stay, expecting...return)
@oAlt
@Ankoganit Yes that's the correct one
CCCC: When moving north, live next to a heat source (8)
@Ankoganit Wait isn't that a definition in the middle of the clue? I thought that was a big no-no.
@oAlt ^
No, the definition is "country"
Oh. Duh.
5:50 PM
At the end
Was thinking the "stay, expecting... return" was the def for some reason.
Ah nw my annotation wasn't super detailed tbf
A bartender walks into a bar... wait a second, he actually works here. <- Is this a good or a bad joke, and if it is bad (yes it is), why is it bad? Does it have to do with the lack of poonchline?
