Tim has been developing some new projects to follow the success of his Blackburne biography.
The first of these will be a forthcoming book for McFarland, to appear in 2018 or perhaps late 2017. The second will be a subsequent book for McFarland.
British Chess Literature to 1914: The manuscript of this book has just been delivered. Read more here.
Steinitz in London: The ultimate aim here is to produce a new biography of Steinitz up to the point he first went to the USA (autumn 1882), including some newly-discovered games and corrections to many other games whose scores are incorrect in previous books and databases. As a by-product Tim hopes to eventually make available a fully-sourced and corrected database of Steinitz's games up to that point in his career, including also other games played by Steinitz in England in later years (1883, and 1895-1899).
Essays on Chess History : Another project is to produce (perhaps as an e-book or print-to-order) a collection of my essays in chess history, which in some cases would be extensively updated, with a few new essays included. There are still some sections of my PhD thesis and past conference papers which have never been published in book or article form, including a major study of early Irish chess clubs and a biographical study of Lord George William Lyttelton, who was President of the first British Chess Association. This book would also probably include a section on more recent chess history.
Further ideas include the possibility of publishing e-books of some of my older books of which I have retained electronic rights. By all means, email with preference suggestions to help me prioritise.
