Default Bobby Fischer's Games of Chess is now at Barnes and Noble

Bobby Fischer's Games of Chess is now available at Barnes and Noble
Bookstores everywhere.

http://search.barnesandnoble.com/boo...ean=0923891463

This is the only book ever written entirely by Bobby Fischer. It is
not to be confused with other books with similar names that were
written by other authors.

This book appears at Barnes and Noble through an agreement reached two
week ago by which most Ishi Press books will be available at all
Barnes and Noble stores and other stores worldwide.

Here is the blurb on the original dust jacket, as published in 1959:

THERE ARE 34 games in this book. The 13 from the U.S. Championship
Tournament of 1957-58 and the prize-winning “Game of the Century” from
the Third Rosenwald Trophy Tournament are penetratingly analyzed by
Bobby Fischer, whose annotations provide invaluable instructions to
the chess player of either average or advanced ability. In addition,
this book includes the scores of Bobby Fischer's 20 games from the
1958 Portoroz Interzonal Tournament in which he played against the
world's elite in chess, among them Tal, Gligorich, Petrosyan, and
Bronstein.

The games in this book reveal Bobby Fischer's brilliance in middle and
end-game strategy, and also the latest and soundest treatments of
popular openings-in particular, the Sicilian and King's Indian
defenses. By playing these games over, the reader will become familiar
with the patterns of the latest and soundest lines in chess, and will
automatically begin to make stronger moves in his own games.

At the age of fifteen, Bobby Fischer is the youngest international
grandmaster of all time. He lives in Brooklyn, is a junior at Erasmus
Hall High School, and is looking forward to the 1959 Candidates'
Tournament, the winner of which challenges Mikhail Botvinnik for the
world championship.

This does look quite good. How many of its 34 games subsequently
appeared in 60MG?

None of them.

This is an important point.

"My 60 Memorable Games" was intended to be a sequel to "Bobby
Fischer's Games of Chess". Therefore, no game that appeared in "Bobby
Fischer's Games of Chess" also appeared in "My 60 Memorable Games".

This explains the fact that the most famous game of chess that Bobby
Fischer ever played, "The Game of the Century", Donald Byrne vs. Bobby
Fischer, Rosenwald Tournament, 1956, appears starting on on page 63 of
"Bobby Fischer's Games of Chess" with notes by Bobby Fischer, but does
not appear in "My 60 Memorable Games".

This also explains the title, "My 60 Memorable Games". The title does
not say "Best Games of Bobby Fischer" or anything similar because it
does not include any of the games in "Bobby Fischer's Games of Chess".
