Under the pseudonym Azed, Jonathan Crowther has created some of the world’s most mind-bogglingly difficult crosswords over the past three decades. In this insightful guide, Jonathan shares his views on the world of cryptic crosswords and discusses both what is allowed and what really shouldn't be in clue setting. With reviews of the work of the major clue-setters working today along with puzzles chosen to illustrate each setter's quirks and idiosyncrasies, this is the ideal resource for all cryptic crossword enthusiasts.
