I make this announcement that would interest a lot of chessvariant lovers. After many years I finally got all booklets written by V.R.Parton. I have edited this work, adding a lot of illustrative diagrams because Parton was simply using a typing machine. I must thank a lot Peter Blommers (who corrected Pritchard's book) and Ulrich Schädler (from the Swiss Museum of Games) for their precious help in collecting the booklets that were not available before. Also Rick Knowlton and Paul Rapoport for their precious help in scrutinising the text to chase errors made by the scanning process. While Parton did not have the good fortune to see his works published, this volume endeavours to correct that omission. Some hard to find testimonies and correspondence are included to help better understand the complex personality of this inventor of games. Parton showed a sincere desire that his studies reach a broader audience, and this is what is accomplished by the present publication. At last, his creations are being made available to future generations, and will not be forgotten. This book (325pages) can be found on Amazon or better on Lulu.com:
