    I read this as a childover and over and over until I was old enough to understand it There are some really interesting things going on in this book and I wish I could find my copy to read it again You don t even have to like chess.

    Great set of chess themed stories Unicorn Variations is a classic, and Unsound Variations by GRR Martin was excellent As a tournament player, it was very clear that Martin knows a lot about chess.

    A mostly excellent and a bit obscure collection of science fiction stories with the common theme of chess My favorites were the classics by Fritz Leiber, George R.R Martin, and Roger Zelazny, though there isn t a real stinker in the bunch.

    This is definitely the greatest collection of fantasy and SF stories to involve chess or a chess like game to have ever been published There are many great stories in here, and at least 2 masterpieces The Immortal Game by Poul Anderson, and Unicorn Variation by Roger Zelazny.
