All Fun and Games

Mystery writer Stanley Ellin once said 'The way he plays chess demonstrates a man's whole nature', and indeed any game of skill requires a modicum of guile. So whether it's the subtle gambit of Vladmir Nabokov's Luzhin Defense, the bravado of Walter Tevis' pool-playing Hustler or the peculiar appeal of 'Where Will The Little Green Man Be Next?' in Philip K Dick's Time out of Joint, you'll find some fascinating battles of wits in this selection. So, make your choice: the game's afoot!
