Who is the best player of all time? Although they never played, it would have been something to see a Bobby Fischer-Garry Kasparov match!
That is the premise of my novel KNIGHT TO KING 4: The Fischer-Kasparov Match.
I have often bemoaned the failure to sustain chess’s grip on the public fancy that existed during the Fischer-Spassky frenzy. So a few years ago in my modest way I decided to do something about it: I began to write Knight to King 4: The Fischer-Kasparov Match (K2K4). The book will be now released next week.
Just like a John Grisham novel does not delve into the minutiae of legal principles, K2K4 is not a chess text. It is simply a human interest story about two chess geniuses whose lives overlapped but who never competed against each other. K2K4 presents a scenario where the two did play, while trying to re-create the excitement of Fischer-Spassky.

Thank you, in advance, for your interest and getting the word out!
