FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Triple Exclam!!! The Life and Games of Emory Tate, Chess Warrior hit the market last year on March 1st with great anticipation and was well-received. Now there is a paperback equivalent on sale. It is also featured in a bold full-color format with a non-gloss finish. There have been minor corrections from the original hardback version. This collector’s item goes for $27.00 and is available at The Chess Drum. The paperback version is poised to reach a wider audience with a lower price point and bulk discounts of 10% are available at five or more copies.
In the past year, I have made additional discoveries of Tate’s legacy and perhaps these will become a topic for a more comprehensive work on chess in the African Diaspora. Hopefully, Triple Exclam will be the beginning of a series of books highlighting the unique contributions made by unheralded players overlooked in the history of chess.
