If you think this is a stodgy magazine of boring chess lore, think again. In the premier issue, there is coverage of the 2002 Imre König Memorial in San Francisco with excellent annotations by Grandmasters Suat Atalik, Alex Yermolinksy, and Yuri Shulman. Bob Long, a long-time book vendor is the publisher and states,
"Before you is our attempt at not only a new chess publication in the United States but one also for the whole world of hobbyists, sellers, intellectual pursuers, educators, professionals, trades' people, and so on. We hope that at least a small smile will appear on your face, an eagerness to see what is inside, and a chance to find out if you've been missing anything."
Mr. Long can be contacted for more information. Subscriptions are $30.00 for four issues and can be ordered by contacting him at the information below:
