Book excerpt: Bestselling author David Shenk has written the ultimate story of how 32 carved pieces on a board illuminated our understanding of war, science and the human brain. Chess is far more than just a game. Its rules and pieces have served as a metaphor for society. It has appeared in the writings of Borges, Nabokov, Tolstoy, Canetti, Eliot, to name just a few. It has helped form the military strategies that conquered civilisations, influenced the mathematical understandings that have driven technological change, and served as a moral guide. It has been condemned by Popes as the devil's game, yet presidents have used it to promote diplomacy. Here, David Shenk chronicles its intriguing saga, from ancient Persia to medieval Europe to the dens of Benjamin Franklin and Norman Schwarzkopf. Along the way, he examines a single legendary game that took place in London in 1851 between two masters of the time, and relays his own attempts to become as skilled as his Polish ancestor Samuel Rosenthal, a nineteenth-century champion. With its blend of cultural history and Shenk's lively personal narrative, The Immortal Game is a compelling guide for novices and aficionados alike.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Another Reinfeld Classic We are pleased to release another book in the Fred Reinfeld Chess Classics series. The Immortal Games of Capablanca was – and continues to be – one of Reinfeld’s most popular books. A detailed biography of the third world chess champion introduces the 113 games. They are presented chronologically, with clear and instructive annotations. This 21st century edition has been revised and reformatted to meet the expectations of the modern chessplayer. This includes: (a) The original English descriptive notation has been converted to modern figurine algebraic notation; (b) Over 200(!) diagrams have added, along with more than a dozen archival photos; and (c) The Index of Openings now has ECO codes. Reinfeld’s annotations were also cross-checked by Stockfish 14, one of the most powerful engines available. When Stockfish had a different, meaningful evaluation from that of Reinfeld’s, the engine’s suggestion is indicated by “S14:” followed by the specific line. As in our other “21st Century Editions,” and with the exception of the occasional supplement by Stockfish, Reinfeld’s original text has been preserved. Follow the life and games of the brilliant Cuban world champion in Reinfelds’s timeless classic The Immortal Games of Capablanca.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Immortality sucks. Just ask Imogen Gray: Over two-hundred thousand years old and teetering on the edge of total insanity. Strong as a shifter, faster than a vampire, Imogen's walked the earth forever, always alone, never growing, never changing. Never learning, either. Her smart mouth and quick temper get her into trouble far too often. When that happens, she gets hurt. Sometimes, very badly, and it can take a long, painful time to heal from severed limbs and disembowelment. She's tired of it all. So tired. Imogen's on a mission to find the next reincarnation of her father, the only person in the world who knows how to complete the transition to human, and get rid of the curse of immortality. He must know, because he did it himself. He wasn't human when she was born - he was something else. But he died a human, and he keeps coming back to experience human life, again and again. He's here in Emerald Valley, somewhere, hiding amongst the eccentric locals, or hobnobbing with the billionaires that visit the Vampire King's country club up on the western ridge. She just has to find him. But when her delinquent teenage ward accidentally summons a powerful Fae Prince through the portal, suddenly, finding her dad has to take a backseat. There's a homicidal maniac on the loose, one who has his eyes on the Vampire King. Her Vampire King. Worse than the burning jealousy is the fact that the Fae Prince seems to know exactly what she is. Immortal Games is Book Two in the fast, fierce and fast-paced Urban Fantasy series. A slow-burn romance, it includes a diverse cast of characters, shifters, witches, fae, cryptids and more. Occasional coarse language, sexual references and drug references. No explicit sex scenes. Content note for suicidal thoughts.
