Chess Stars books are written by outstanding chess players which are extremely occupied by playing and preparing for tournaments. This makes difficult to commit ourselves with schedules. Creative process is hard to streamline. We prefer to delay printing, but maintain our high standards. We'll try to keep you informed about our immediate plans with the reservation that they have no deadlines.

• The Modern English Volume 1: 1.c4 e5
by Kiril Georgiev and Semko Semkov Expected in September

The book is written by White's standpoint and covers non-g3 set-ups: 1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Nc3 Nc6 4.e3 as a main weapon and 4.d3 as an alternative. Some notable exceptions are 1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 d6 3.g3, although 3.Nf3 and 3.d4 are also analysed. The book goes beyond a straightforward repertoire, and covers different approaches. Thus it should serve well players with both colours.
