The Azed crossword is published weekly in The Observer newspaper, and is available free online from the Guardian’s crossword site.
 

The Crossword Centre, run by Derek Harrison is the most active site for information about tough cryptic crosswords. It includes information on the puzzles and their setters, and has a popular message board. For Crossword Centre members Derek publishes a monthly prize puzzle. There is also a monthly clue-writing competition judged by the members, which is hosted by & lit.

The Crossword Centre contains a section devoted to Azed.
