Olimpiu G. Urcan is creating a digital chess column

patrons

On this Patreon page, functioning essentially as a subscription-based digital column, fans of well-researched chess history will find little-known games, in-depth analysis, interviews, quizzes, essays, various audio-visual material, book reviews and much more. Most of this material will be drawn from my own research but, occasionally, subscribers will get access to substantial contributions from several distinguished guests as well.

In regard to what kind of material Patreon readers should expect, in addition to this list of published books, I should add that between 2009 and 2015 I contributed a monthly column for ChessCafe.com (with guest columns by the indefatigable John S. Hilbert). For the past decade, I've also contributed regularly to Edward Winter’s ground-breaking Chess Notes column, the place for chess history in the digital world.
