This site now hosts a complete archive of PDF versions of The Problemist Supplement, from 1992 to the current year. This magazine is aimed mainly at newcomers to chess composition, so it is recommended for those who want to find out more about chess problems. You can find the archive here.
Our Italian friend Ivo Fasiori emails us to inform us that the veteran Italian chess composer
Professor Oscar Bonivento died in the hospital in Bologna on 1st October. As well as his
composing activities, Bonivento edited chess problem columns and produced many books about
Italian chess composition and composers.
No doubt a more informed obituary will appear in The Problemist in due course. In the meantime
here is one of the Professor's later successes.
