Footsteps that you hear down the hall ...

 You know the feeling of something half remembered
Of something that never happened, yet you recall it well...

I hesitate to bring it up again,'s back.

The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit: A modern guide to a fascinating chess opening

"The book went to the printers this very week." So posted the author, IM Christoph Scheerer (previously Wisnewski) on the ChessPub forum on 20 January 2011.

It looks to be real this time. Go to this page at Everyman Chess. There you can download  a PDF with an introduction, a table of contents, and an extract of part of a chapter on the Bogoljubow Defense. It looks good!

Promised in February. Again.

For real this time?

Or just a face in the misty light?
