The Villains were the author's chess opponents. They provided him with many wonderful and joyous chess battles. His opponents were talented, experienced battle-hardened fighters! All of Villains in the book were accomplished players. Most were GMs', IM's, FM's, SM's or NM's. Some were former or future US Champions, some were World Junior Champions, many were current or past champions of their respective states, and some had been US Junior champions. Some were even champions of their countries! Two Villains in the book were former World Chess Champions, that the author played exhibition games against. One of those games was a simultaneous game, and the other was a 5-minute blitz game. Every one of the Villains in the book were tough fighters over the board. This is a collection of memorable, exhilarating, and interesting games that gave the author much joy and pleasure over the years.
