En unik bok der anerkjente moderne forfattere har bidratt til redaktørens prosjekt med noveller av kvalitet og interesse for både sjakk-interesserte og helt alminnelige lesere. Mark N. Taylor bidrar med et interessant forord om sjakk i litteraturen.

  • It was my goal to solicit stories that would be respected for their style by literary connosseurs, as well stories that would be respected for their content by experienced chess players.
    Redaktør Howard Goldowsky skriver i innledningen

  • Chess stories that are as sharp as a mating attack, as cheeky as a knight sacrifice, and as improbable as stalemate."
    Paul Hoffmann, forfatteren av "King's Gambit"
