BCM's goal is to entertain, inform and offer the best in high-class chess insight, stories and research. And a touch of glamour as well! I always look forward to my copy each month It's a great little magazine.
Thank you to everyone involved in producing such an interesting publication. Very high quality articles and production, a very promising change indeed and I wish you great success with it.
I would welcome a couple of pages of quality and independent book reviews, something which the BCM used to do so well. The more modern look is certainly very appealing, and the writing remains of exquisite quality. You should certainly be very proud! It truly feels that the BCM has moved to the 21st century with this update. I returned to BCM after a break of many years and found the magazine to be an excellent read with very instructive and interesting games, articles and puzzles.
Some of the colours used for highlights made it difficult for me to read a little of the text but I got used to that and overall must say that BCM is excellent. I also love the fact that they have kept the pocket sized format which makes it ideal when travelling to take BCM along with me. At a time when the emphasis is online with the computer, being able to sit and read BCM is a welcome distraction and I recommend others to give it a try.
Alongside recent tournaments at home and abroad, the latest issue features a lovely article on Philidor, puzzles, theory and plenty of game analysis. Buy the latest issue of BCM in digital or print format or subscribe below.
