Blackburne book at printer

Joseph Henry Blackburne (1841-1924) was Britain's greatest master before the late 20th century "chess explosion." Tim Harding's major book to be published by McFarland (hardback and e-book) is the most important biography of a major British player to appear for ten years.

The book is now at the printer. You can order it now from the publisher or the usual suppliers to receive your copy as soon as it becomes available.

The Kibitzer may be back in September.
