JAMES EADE began taking chess seriously in 1972 when Bobby Fischer was taking the chess world by storm. He competed on his high school and college teams and became a United States Chess Federation (USCF) chess master in 1981. In 1984 he became a USCF correspondence chess master as well. International organizations awarded him the master title in 1990 (for correspondence) and in 1993 (for regular tournament play), but his chess playing career has gradually given way to chess writing, organizing, and teaching.
James has written two previous books on chess: Remember the MacCutcheon, and San Francisco, 1995. He has written numerous articles for a variety of magazines and has edited both the Golden Gate Chess News and the California Chess Journal.
