Masters of Technique - The Mongoose Anthology of Chess Fiction by Howard Goldowsky

Publisher: Mongoose Press, 2010
Edition: Hardcover
ISBN: 978-09-791482-62-2
Pages: 286
Language: English

Masters of Technique: The Mongoose Anthology of Chess Fiction is the first chess fiction anthology of contemporary stories, ever published. Mongoose Press has collected the best work from twelve of the most talented chess fiction writers of the past decade.

In these rich and compelling stories, chess shines as a sophisticated metaphor, and fans of the game will applaud how chess is woven with technical accuracy into every narrative.

To celebrate this historic achievement, chess fiction expert, Professor Mark N. Taylor has written an entertaining and erudite foreword. Every fiction lover with an interest in chess, either serious or en passant, should not pass on this opportunity to be entertained.

All profits from Masters of Technique: The Mongoose Anthology of Chess Fiction, help support multiple chess charities.

Editor's Bio
Howard Goldowsky is an avid chess fan and student of the game. He lives in Canton, MA, with his wife Marci, daughter Erika, and son Tyler. In his spare time he works as a freelance chess journalist.

His first book, Engaging Pieces: Interviews and Prose for the Chess Fan, was published by Daowood & Brighton, in 2007.

With a Forward by Mark Taylor
Mark N. Taylor is an Associate Professor of English at Berry College and senior editor of the award-winning Georgia Chess magazine. He has published articles on medieval and modern chess and chess literature.

He is currently preparing a comprehensive annotated bibliography of chess narratives in English.

The list of contributors:
Katherine Neville, Stephen Carter, Michael Griffith, Paul Eggers, Wells Tower, Patrick Somerville, Edward Falco, Steven Levery, Michael Weinreb, John Wheatcroft, Katie Kitamura, Mark Coggins.

Some Comments:

Paul Hoffman, author of King's Gambit:
"Chess stories that are as sharp as a mating attack, as cheeky as a knight sacrifice, and as improbable as stalemate."

Frederick Barthelme, author of Waveland:
"A marvelous gathering of literary intrigues...all in the name of chess. Excellent for anyone who has ever picked up a pawn."

J.C. Hallman, author of The Chess Artist:
"Chess and chess-like games are familiar enough in literature: think Nabokov, Hesse, Zweig, Kawabata. Masters of Technique, gathering the likes of Weinreb, Tower, Carter, and Eggers, proves that serious writers' fascination with the royal game is not just a phenomenon of the past.

This is a collection just as well-suited to those who read books as to those who read notation."
