Two New Excerpts

July 15th, 2022 15 comments

At the very end of August, we will publish two new books: Fischer – Spassky 1972 by Tibor Karolyi plus Korchnoi and his Chess Grandchildren by Vladimir Barsky.

On Fischer – Spassky 1972 the title only tells part of the story – yes, there is in-depth study of the famous Reykjavik match, but Karolyi also covers the 1992 rematch. You can read an excerpt here.

Korchnoi and his Chess Grandchildren features 25 deeply annotated games from the latter stages of Korchnoi’s career. Numerous articles, photos and interviews also provide a vivid portrait of a spiky and lively character. You can read an excerpt here.
