      Chess Bitch
      Women in the Ultimate Intellectual Game
      Chess Bitch, written by the 2004 U.S. Woman's Chess Champion, is an eye-opening account of how today's young female chess players are successfully knocking down the doors to this traditionally male game, infiltrating the male-owned sporting subculture of international chess, and giving the phrase "play like a girl" a whole new meaning.

      Chess Informant - ISSUE 119
      Viking Edition
      Chess Informant 119 Viking is largely dedicated to the newly crowned world champion, Magnus Carlsen. He’s the emerging global brand and the new face of our beloved game. We offer exclusive Carlsen photos inside Chess Informant 119, but for the cover we preferred the symbolism of a sailing drakkar boat. This newest installment of the Informant is all about red and blue that one can connect with the Norwegian flag, perhaps as additional evidence that Vikings are back in fashion.

      Maracana Edition

Surrealism in chess – that’s what Alex is painting on the 64 squares of the chessboard. But this is not just pure fantasy. You will discover that you really can unleash a novelty as early as the 3rd move – even in today’s gladiatorial world of competitive chess!

      Encyclopedia of Chess Combinations
      4TH EDITION
      ECC4 is a completely revised and updated edition of one of the fundamental books about the art of combinational chess. In comparison to the third edition there are 292 more examples but in general about 1/3 of the previous edition is changed, not to mention again the different structure. The content represents the work of our Editorial Board of experienced grandmasters and international masters. It is always possible that some known combinations were missed; however, it should be rare example. Anyway, this is one of the reasons why different editions exist and future ones will follow.
