As well-versed practiced club chess player, Nick Pelling published the eBook Chess Superminiatures with over 100 super-short chess games all under ten moves, and plenty of carefully-graded interactive puzzles throughout [5] [6]. Somewhat longer ago, along with Arthur Norman, Nick Pelling authored Acornsoft Chess - as the name suggests published by Acornsoft in 1982 and 1983 for the BBC Micro and Acorn Electron as well.
