  GrahamClayton: In 1966 Contoski wrote a story called "Von Goom's Gambit". Warped chess genius Von Goom devises an opening whose mere pattern on the board brings convulsions, insanity or death to his opponents. Spectators are turned to stone. It takes the combined efforts of the world's finest chess masters to defeat Von Goom's Gambit. Their counter-strategy, though brilliant, is unorthodox and may bend the rules a little. They shoot him.
