Michael Weitz | 6 comments Have you read novels with chess as a theme? Or at least part of the story? If you like mysteries, you might want to check out the award-winning Ray Gordon series. He's a chess teacher and there are real games featured in the books. And guess who the author is! :)

I hope you don't mind my adding this here, but if you're interested...
