Historically, editors of chess organisationsí bulletins, newsletters and the like, as well as newspaper columnists, used to publish reviews of books supplied to them, free of charge, by chess-book publishers for the purpose. This page of this website is provided to enable any who act as such reviewers to air their work.  Obviously, the books involved need to be chess-related.


The initial reviewer to take advantage of this vehicle is David G. Mills of Hull, but others are welcome to submit book reviews for inclusion.
