A decade after his literary debut with Mate 30 (Barcelona City Council, 2004) and his collaboration in the anthology about a board (Foam Pages, 2005), David Vivancos Apelluz chess fiction returns with a new collection of thirty stories that revolve around the game of kings.
In the pages of Intermediate plays the great masters have no place to move their brilliant strategies inside out of the board; teams fans who sacrifice the vermouth to compete on Sunday morning; social and eccentric chess champions participating in an international open; Botanical harvesting ladies and bishops; perverse bank employees who miss the game during working hours.
There is room for cutting fantastic stories and also stories of uncomfortable truth. And for those rare types and cheats and, above all, to the losers that both fascinate the writer. Having, there are up space for microrrelatos that as the intermediate moves in chess games, mingle with the other stories in this book in order to encourage the reader to keep alert until the last paragraph, do not go to slip the double meaning of a story or a check that will do away with the game plan developed.
And also, of course, for irony, criticism and humor trademark readers they expect to find in the texts of the author.
