Tell us about yourself.  I like to know whom I am playing.  I am 67,  and haven't played chess since graduating from high school in 1972, the year Fischer beat Spassky.  But now, having climbed my professional ladders, I want to have fun and stay sharp.  Also, chess sets can be artistically beautiful, and I have a few vintage sets.  I recommend "Master Pieces," by Garth Williams; "The Art of Chess," by Colleen Schafroth; and "The Birth of the Chess Queen," by Marilyn Yalom.  I am an associate professor of mathematics and a serving Presbyterian minister.
