|ex-ChUSFA: stamp on first inside page, page 85. MORE INFO|
The Overlords ordained it: this intergalactic chess match between 2 evenly matched chessmasters to decide the fate of the universe. If David wins, all evil-doers will be painfully obliterated. But if he is checkmated, the forces of good will be moved out of existence.. and thousands of years of years of chaos will begin. Can David trust the Overlords? Can he strike a bargain with his opponent and extend the series into an endless series of draws?
Expansion/revision of "Closed Sicilian" from Magazine of F&SF November 1973.
