Tim's work in progress

Blackburne biography project: the book is now published.

Tim is now starting to develop/ revive some new projects as the Blackburne book nears completion.

One of these is the possibility of publishing e-books of some of my older books of which I have retained electronic rights. By all means, email with preference suggestions to help me prioritise.

Another is to produce (perhaps as an e-book or print-to-order) a collection of my essays in chess history, which in some cases would be extensively updated, with a few new essays included.

Steinitz in the U.K.: The ultimate aim here is to produce a fully-sourced database, and possibly a book, concerning Steinitz up to the point he first went to the USA (autumn 1882), including also other games played by Steinitz in England in later years (1883, and 1895-1899).

So far available are two articles about Steinitz's visits to Ireland in 1865 and in 1881.
