Our member Gunnar Finnlaugsson has briefly reported about his last visit to Iceland this month. His main concern was a translation of the book Við skákborðið í aldarfjórðung (see Publications of our Members) into English. Gunnar is the project leader, there is already a typed draft made by the late Björn Jóhannesson. Most likely the jounalist Johannes Finnlaugsson will be involved as well. It is their intention to publish a book on Ólafsson next year on the occasion of the 75th birthday of the famous Icelandic grandmaster. Good luck for this project!
