|Jun-23-08|| ||Augalv: Featured Chess Author - GM Mikhail Golubev
Mikhail is author of three highly acclaimed books
As the still young and already very informative website Chessdom requested, I will try to introduce myself as a chess books author. I wrote three opening books and also one chapter for the book Experts versus the Sicilian. Subjects of all these works were openings / systems that I played for something like 20 years, so perhaps it would be correct to say that I try to choose topics which are familiar to me. From other point of view, even 30 (already) years of playing experience in some other openings, for example 3.Nc3 against French Defence with White, do not give me impression that I am ready to prepare reference work about them: I still do not know and feel the topic for that adventure.
My books can be of interest to chess players who are at least a bit serious about their openings. Every of these three books required quite serious efforts from my part (and, it is necessary to add, considerable editorial efforts by the publishers). Some 50-60 articles on various topics can be compared with a book by overall size of material (and maybe by size of the fee?) - but in case of book, the amount of required time and energy per page is several times higher. Partly it is because every book needs a consistency in presentation and reasonable balance between all its parts.
