Additional Information

 info slate and shell:

John Fairbairn, author of 'The Go Companion', has been studying and commenting on the world of go for years. The 34 articles that comprise this book touch on a wide assortment of topics, from game commentaries, narratives of special events, and stories of historical figures in go, to discussions of unusual moves as well as trends in opening theory. For instance, are you aware of the pro game where Black started on the 3-2 point? Some material has never been published in English before, such as details of the ‘Atomic Bomb’ Game. 'The Go Companion' also includes the first accurate translation of the famous go scenes in The Tale of Genji, and a fascinating attempt to explain Go Seigen’s ideas about the game. For a complete list of topics, see the table of contents included in the sample pages. The image on the cover was created by Mark Odaka, known in the go community as 'tweet' of IGS. Many more pictures in the classical style can be seen in the IGS Art Gallery at www.pandanet.co.jp.
