Death notice.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Hans Bodlaender wrote on 2006-01-07 UTCThe death of David Pritchard is a sad loss for the chess variant world. His Encyclopedia of Chess Variants (called ''the ECV' by many) has had a great impact for chess variants. For me, it was one of the four books I have read most often. He is also remembered by CV-enthousiasts for his other books, including a second book on chess variants, and his chairmanship of and work for the British Chess Variant Society. I also remember David for several kind letters to me and the help he gave in several ways to this website.
