I mentioned two classes of piece-types, Queens and Bent Riders. The first thing to ask anymore with a piece-class, is what did Gilman do with them so far? These are Gilman's organized Bent Riders. They include Rose, Rhino, Gryphon, Crooked Bishop... Some are just renamings, and many are Gilman's logical inventions out of the general concept. They would not go all the way to ''multi-path,'' but a few of them are anyway. (Most piece-categories overlap a little with a couple others in each case.) This preliminary comment will follow-up eventually, continuing M&Bxx, skipping from ''04 Generalized Generals'' and 05 Punning By Numbers to 09 Might Like a Rose.
