Blackburne book going to press this week

Joseph Henry Blackburne (1841-1924) was Britain's greatest chess player before the late 20th century. Tim Harding's major biography will be published by McFarland (hardback and e-book) later this year. Proofs are corrected and the publisher says they are about to send the book to the printer.
