Higher Material Chess Books

13/11/22 UPDATE: It is now possible to buy books directly from the website again, although there may be slightly longer wait times in getting your parcel to you over the next couple of weeks.


There is only one book written on this vital subject – the twilight zone between material chess and tactical chess, and that’s: UFOs – or Play Like an Alien.

Please note that all payments include shipping costs to the UK only. We may be able to accommodate alternative payment/shipping options, or bulk order discounts if you contact us directly, so please get in touch!

UFOs: or Play Like an Alien

The aliens can teach us a lot about chess. Enter the twilight zone and discover the science of UFOs – leaving Unguarded, Focused attacks, Opening/closing lines – these describe an approach to chess that is neither entirely material nor yet tactical.
