This trip through the literary side of chess mania contains many humorous short stories and anecdotes. Professor Williard Fiske, organizer of the American Chess Congress and editor of "Chess Monthly," wrote these pieces for his magazine over several decades. The topics covered include a fantastic tale of chess in Hades, an imagining of ancient Romans' introduction to the Indian game chaturanga (the ancestor of modern chess), first person tales of games, chess poems and fables involving chess. A section of historical sketches traces the development of the game, and the book also includes biographies of several famous chess devotees, including Benjamin Franklin
