    Default American Chess Magazine

    American Chess Magazine

    November 18, 2016

    Some of the chess magazines that have come out of the United States in the past 150 years with the first name “American” are:

    American Chess Bulletin (1904-1962)
    American Chess Journal (1879-1881)
    American Chess Magazine (1846-7,1897-9)
    American Chess Monthly (1892-1893)
    American Chess Quarterly (1961-1965)
    American Chess Review (1886-1887)
    American Chess Weekly (1902-1903)
    American Chess World (1901-1902)

    Several of these have been reprinted by the Czech publishing house Moravian Chess.

    I recall these old ventures because a new periodical is about to appear at the end of 2016. It is to be called American Chess Magazine, to be in large format (152 pages) and to appear quarterly.

    I venture to say that it hopes to rival or surpass New in Chess. Here are some of the articles in the first
    issue:

    The British Chess Magazine started in 1881 and continues to this day but in 2011 it looked like it was going under

    http://forum.chesstalk.com/showthrea...chess+magazine

    It continued with amateurs contributing articles but it was no longer the magazine of record and very few titled players wrote for it.

    Chess Informant took it over at the beginning of 2016 and it is referred to as British Chess Magazine Reloaded! It is not the old BCM that most of the old-timers remember, but still…

    Chess Informant felt that the time was right for this new magazine in the United States. Their blurb:

    The international team that has in the last six years restored the legendary Chess Informant to its former glory, and more recently revamped the 135–year–old British Chess Magazine, has now been encouraged to celebrate the resurgence of US chess with the help of some of the finest American authors and editors.

    Naturally, the success of the USA team at the Chess Olympiad comes under the spotlight in our first issue, as does Jeffery Xiong’s capture of the world junior title. There is also an in-depth preview of the forthcoming world championship match between Magnus Carlsen and Sergey Karjakin, to be staged in New York during November. Nevertheless, readers might be surprised at the number of contributed articles by writers from foreign lands. But here the ACM is only mirroring how dynamic and how global the chess scene is today.

    Canadians will want to think twice before paying $200 a year for a magazine!
