The Chess Players is a historical novel based on the life of Paul Morphy, who is considered to have been the world chess champion and possibly the greatest chess player in the history of the game. However, this is not a book about the game of chess. There are no chess diagrams in this book, no moves, no positions, no opening traps or tricks on how to catch an unwary opponent. Rather, this book is about the players, the people who play chess. It was a popular book when it came out in 1960, spending several weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers List. Paul Charles Morphy was born on June 22, 1837 in New Orleans Louisiana. He learned the moves of chess simply by watching his uncle and father play. Nobody taught him the rules. By age 9 he was regarded as the best player in New Orleans. By age 21 he was regarded as the best chess player in the world. But then he quit chess and never played a serious game again. Ever since, players have wondered what ever happened to Paul Morphy. This book by Frances Parkinson Keyes is historical fiction. However, she went to great lengths to research her subject matter and ensure the historical, geographical, linguistic and even scientific accuracy of her writings. In 1959, while writing this book, she contacted David Lawson, who was recearching the Life of Paul Morphy. Lawson had been researching the Life of Morphy since 1938. Finally, in 1976, Lawson published Paul Morphy: Pride and Sorrow of Chess, the best biography of Morphy and the book Lawson had been working on for 38 years. Lawson was 89 years old when the book came out.

The first comprehensive analysis of English national identity in the late Middle Ages. During the late Middle Ages, the increasing expansion of administrative, legal, and military systems by a central government, together with the greater involvement of the commons in national life, brought England closer than ever to political nationhood. Examining a diverse array of texts--ranging from Latin and vernacular historiography to Lollard tracts, Ricardian poetry, and chivalric treatises--this volume reveals the variety of forms "England" assumed when it was imagined in the medieval West. These essays disrupt conventional thinking about the relationship between premodernity and modernity, challenge traditional preconceptions regarding the origins of the nation, and complicate theories about the workings of nationalism. Imagining a Medieval English Nation is not only a collection of new readings of major canonical works by leading medievalists, it is among the first book-length analyses on the subject and of critical interest.

Schuster Landing, by outward appearances a quiet college community, harbors a demented past and present that is no secret to its residents. Yet no one speaks of the truth for fear that it will come knocking at their door. Children have gone missing, parents have died or disappeared and left nothing behind, except for quiet memories of those who remember.It is not until Helen Ramirez tells Lucy of her son Raphael's disappearance and the discovery of a mysterious gold foiled envelope that the blinders are removed from Lucy's eyes. Blinking is no longer an option.Lucy may have left the troubles of yesterday behind, but the reality of today demands atonement and resolution. There is an invisible game of chess being played with the residents of her new community. With each passing day, her life seems to be dangling in the void between the fates of death and life. With the assistance of her past and the present, she and her crew maneuver through a treacherous journey from the bottom all the way to the top. The dread of receiving one of those gold foil envelopes with its dark message "He's Been Here" must be put to rest forever.
