The Problemist, November, 2008
Written by Michael McDowell
The November issue featured the informal awards for two-movers from 2007 and more-movers
from 2006, and a review of the awardwinners in the 8th WCCT. Articles included part 2 of
Geoff Foster's exposition of the Mäkihovi theme, David Shire on the work of Hugo
Knuppert, and Stephen Emmerson's explanation of a new fairy condition called Variables.
A number of new books were reviewed, and Browsing in the Library covered G. F.
Anderson's personal collection from 1924. In the Supplement John Rice presented
selections from the recent collection of Russian more-movers, and paid tribute to the late
Austrian composer Helmut Zajic, while David Shire examined ‘Defensive motivation”.
