The (Red) Queen’s Gambit

The Rev. Ivor Davies (1923-2005), vicar of Hay-on-Wye, had lifelong interests in both chess and the works of Lewis Carroll. His scholarly musings on the subject have been published in journals such as The Anglo-Welsh Review, Jabberwocky, and Theologia Cambrensis. Fortunately, the organization he founded in 1967, the Clergy Correspondence Chess Club, has recently republished his Carrollian chess essays in a booklet entitled The Chess Player’s Alice. Copies (£3.50 = $5) can be obtained by emailing the Rev. Bruce Carlin.
