Mini Roman; I don't like it but . . .
Mr. Perkins, In my 2017 book “Keys to Winning Bridge,” I discussed the pros and (mostly) the cons of using a host of conventional methods, and it so happens that I treated mini-Roman at length. That section of the book might be of interest to you. Cordially, Frank Stewart
Reese and Me
This post reminds me of two episodes more than 30 years ago. I was working with Alfred Sheinwold to create our syndicated column, and a reader took us to task for lifting a deal from one of Reese’s books. I was able to show that an almost identical deal ...
10 books you should read over and over...
As C. Kuyuk was kind enough to cite a couple of my books, I will add that two of my other recent books, “Who Has the Queen?” and “What’s Your Call?”, employ a quiz format throughout. F.S.
Eric Murray 1928-2018
I was at a Nationals long ago — it may have been Chicago, 1971 — and was surveying my results on a recap sheet when Eric Murray came up. He was a legendary figure, and I was absolutely nobody, but he struck up a conversation and we discussed a couple of the ...

The Best Bridge Writer Poll
Out of sight, out of mind, I guess. Alfred Sheinwold (1912-1997) was a monumental figure in the history of bridge and bridge journalism. Everyone has personal tastes, but to suggest that Freddy has no place on a list of great writers is at best ungenerous and uninformed. I need not ...

The Best Bridge Writer
Mr. Sher, I sincerely appreciate your kind words about my columns. I have always been a David Bird fan. When he began to write almost 40 years ago, I was working at the ACBL Bulletin and edited his submissions. They were delightful and well received, but I suspect that nobody ...

Mr. Sher, Very well. (Sigh.) Responding as a writer myself, thus with an emphasis on the elegance and readability of their prose, I nominate in alphabetical order Kaplan, Mollo, Reese, Sheinwold and Alan Truscott. Mr. Mamula, thanks for asking. That book was first published in 1988 and was reprinted twice ...
The Best Bridge Writer
You guys are most kind. I am honored to be mentioned in the same breath as some of the illustrious writers cited here. One of my own favorites was the late Marshall Miles. His book “How to Win at Duplicate Bridge” made a deep and lasting impression on me when ...
