A New Season

A new season in the chess blogosphere, now that the Summer is over various bloggers have returned to an active status. Full of energy and ideas they start with new series of posts. A few of special interest to me.

Likeforests: The Strategy of My System (in the sidebar of his blog) and now tactics, or was this just this one?

Blue Devil Knight: Chess for Zebras.
He's reading the book so at least someone will be able to tell us what it is about, since most reviewers only tell us about the first chapter.

Transformation: Tools for Structuring. It's not going to be about chess databases, but the first post already is full of useful information.

I would also like to put your attention to the great mystery of the disappearance of Tommy G, who after publishing a second article in a series on How To Study From A Book seems to have disappeared completely. He, his comments and his posts will be missed by me and probably others. Does anybody know what happened to him?

Blue Devil Knight shows us the right way. Why not review the chess book we are reading and this chapter by chapter? It makes us read the book more thoroughly since we have a) make sure we understand what is written and b) form an opinion on what we read. So i guess i will be soon blogging about the book "Practical Chess Analyse".

Btw, likesforests, Blue Devil Knight and Transformation are three great bloggers. I guess we can put them in the category 'Great Bloggers of our time'.

Well, thanks hiddenleaf & chesstiger! I enjoy reading your blogs, too, and will try to keep things interesting. :)

chesstiger - That's one of the reasons Im blogging about My System. If it takes a year to finish, that's fine, but it's a key book and I want to make sure I understand it all.

I agree, they are all fine blogs! As far as tommyg, I have no idea what happened to him. The articles on how he related his musical studies to the study of chess was very interesting. Hope he returns!

I was wondering same thing about Tommy. I found his posts interesting, and he always had wonderful comments on the various blogs he read.

Unrelated: do you have any information about the chess set on top of your page? It's quite intriguing.

As far as Tommy? Looks like a "gone for good" move. It's really a shame.
