Not everything, just getting all the “right files” in the right ordered sequence (I had so many extras this was more difficult than you might’ve thought, certainly harder than I had thought!). Been working on that since Thursday 3-4 days worth.
Then the Proofreader corrections will go in. Little corrections, smoother writing, etc. Hours and hours of stuff. I believe all files have been found and sent to us by courageous Purdy fan Martin Stafford who hails from New Zealand. Thanks to you Martin.
Not only will this be a marvelous addition (and edition), some other Purdy files will be added which were found by co-author Robert Jamieson after Purdy’s passing.
AND, some photos which haven’t been seen before or in ages! One was found by Robert Jamieson in a non-chess magazine but of Purdy at the chess board. We “might” even have a picture of Purdy in color on the back cover of the NEW edition.
Lots of things planned. It may run 450-500 pages. Have a lot of stuff to sort so we don’t know everything yet.
But, I think you will RAVE just like Buddy Holly.
PS: Come to the MORPHY THEMED CHESS FESTIVAL IN OCTOBER (23-24). $200. GM Simon Williams, IM Andrew Martin, FM Macon Shibut. Expect surprises which will be ONLY at the Festival. Non-stop working until then.
