Leonard M. Skinner

A further "gigantic" undertaking is the collection of Alekhine's games by Leonard M. Skinner and Robert G. P. Verhoeven for which I show absolute admiration. You should imagine this book being supplemented with a perfect Aljekhine biography as planned by Ken Whyld – but that didn’t happen anymore. Likewise it's a pity that Rob Verhoeven has in the meantime completely retired from chess bibliography and chess history.
