Rudolf Glenk

Turmtore oder der "Bone-Vorwurf" * Kachelofenprobleme

Time and again it is surprising what excellent chess publications are created by pure amateurs – such a work presents our chess friend Rudolf Glenk with his "Turmtore und Kachelofen-Probleme" [Tower (Rook) gates and tiled stove problems]. If additionally, like to me, the opportunity is granted to admire the "magnificent piece" in Glenk’s front room in Forchheim will understand how it warms the problem friend’s heart.

Interview mit Rudolf Glenk

Former member Udo Güldner and member Rudolf Glenk have recently published the interview of Rudolf Glenk on the occasion of the latter's 75th birthday in book form (the formerly published online version is linked on Interview with Rudolf Glenk).

This is a very attractive small book, with a nice get-up and a bibliophilic layout (color print on slightly colored paper). The well-known bookplate of R. Glenk (Kachelofen / tile stove) was reproduced as frontispiece and an additional photo of R. Glenk on the title page. There is a further bookplate reproduced on the last page inside [22] as well as a smaller one stuck on the front inside cover. The 10 existent copies have been distributed to chess friends of Rudolf Glenk.
