about me

I live in the mountains of western North Carolina (US) and work as a freelance editor of nonfiction. The latter was preceded by two lengthy stints as a systems engineer in the telecom industry. I have written and self-published several books and ebooks (one on bridge, the remainder on chess) and have recorded several digital audio tracks. I last played bridge in 2007.

Zimmerman Reinstated as Winners of Rosenblum Cup 2018
Nic, I'm curious as to why you used Google rather than a meta-search engine that supposedly hides the user's identity.

Did anyone who reads BW ever play against Buster Keaton -- or know someone who did?
