Boland's books in PDN?

Postby jimloy on Tue Nov 11, 2008 9:36 pm

A while back, I received email about someone's project to reproduce some of Ben Boland's ending books into PDN (PGN). Since then, I have lost all of my email and email addresses. And I need files of that kind. Does anybody know about any such files?

I am republishing Ben Boland's work very slowly so if you have a few years to wait, I will have what you need :) John Acker might have some Boland PGN.

I'm working on Boland's Familiar Themes, as that seems to have been the first one (1938). I'm trying to compile a list of errors in Boland's books, and maybe publish them as a book and/or as a series in the ACFB.

For some folks out there who may not know, two other Boland ending books are Famous Positions and Checkers in Depth. Boland also published sheets of corrections to each of his books. I have found some other errors. Even so, Boland's ending books contain fewer errors than books by other authors. And Boland's ending books are classics, as important as Basic Checkers, Kear's Encyclopedia, Lees' Guide, and the books of Payne, Sturges, and Anderson.
