See Jimmy Cornell's "World Sailing Routes". I think most folks consider this the best reference. It really just summarizes various governmental publications, but it is all in one place.

I use the Pilot Charts for my off-shore planning.

Re: Maine to Azores

"The Atlantic Crossing Guide" by Jane Russell (published by the RCC pilotage foundation) is the best focused source of information on that crossing.
