NJ--no rating. Favorites, Morphy, Marshall, Anderssen. Played a lot as a teen, then let it go for 40 years. Trying to reconstitute myself as a chess player.

Meanwhile, let this forum serve as a refuge from wild-eyed loony leftism. Here there will be no admiration for Hugo Chavez, Castro, or any of the other tin-pot dictators admired by chess players from the safety of freedom-loving Western democracies. Here will be found a premise that most of the nations of the world today are governed by Godless fools. Ours, too, unfortunately.

I was also going to say some uncomplimentary things about Queen Pawn games, the Sicilian and the French Defenses, Semi-Slav games, and a few other chess matters. But as those are purely questions of personal taste, I have chosen to leave them alone.

Since setting up this forum, I have also had several novels published: "Bell Mountain," "The Cellar Beneath the Cellar," and "The Thunder King." For more information about them (and me), visit my website, http://leeduigon.com/

Update, much delayed: my fourth book, "The Last Banquet," came out last year, and my fifth, "The Fugitive Prince," I expect to be published sometime this Spring. For book covers and free sample chapters, visit my blog.

Update again: "The Fugitive Prince" is out now and the next project is "The Palace." Editing is well advanced, but we're still waiting for a cover.

Update: "The Palace" is in print now along with No. 7, "The Glass Bridge," with No. 8, "The Temple," waiting in the wings. The first seven are all available via amazon.com.

Update: No. 8, "The Temple," and No.9, "The Throne," are now in print, with No. 10, "The Silver Trumpet,"due for release any day now.

<Mannbee> Do you have a bat signal amirite. Even when I type your name (correctly) as "Mannbee" you always answer the bat signal, no matter where I post it.

Are you in fact Batman. It's a serious question.

  playground player: <jessicafischerqueen> Well, it sort of worked. But I had one problem--the computer wants to print several pages worth of CG as one blog post. I don't know how to cut it off where I want to stop.

If you can tell me how to do that, I think I'll be in business. Thanks!

<Lee> These humorless bullies have a non-inclusive notion of what the word "inclusive" means.

Examples of things not inclusived in their definition:

Good writing
Great art
Creativity
Imagination
Religion (except for Islam)
White people

I have only read your <Bell Mountain> up to the first three books, but I can attest that in my opinion, you admirably inclusived all of these particular inclusivitions.

<diceman> I just noticed yesterday that you had cleared up that <Bronstein- Reshvesky> mystery for me in the <Kibbutzer Kafe>.

I had already had it cleared up because I also posted my question in the <Biographer's Bistro> and read the answer a few minutes after I posted it.

Anyways belated thank you.

<Lee> pardon the off topic post but <diceman> doesn't have a forum, and your forum is the only place I see him post that isn't a crazy house (Rogoff page, Kibbutzer Kafe).

Not to imply he is crazy because he isn't.

  playground player: <OCF> Thanks for the song. I couldn't have listened to it a few weeks ago: two deaths in the family, practically back to back. Precious few of us left.

<jessicafischerqueen> The door here is always open for you and <diceman> and the rest of our Esteemed Colleagues.
