The ancestor of chess …

In the distant past, shatranj was the ancestor of chess. In “Queens are Wild,” shatranj is the password for a time-warp chess match that will jump 17-year-old pawn Margeaux Quigley 52 years in 52 minutes — from 1984 to 2036. She will attempt to be promoted from pawn to queen to trap King Robert Ballentine. But who will checkmate whom? Jack Chaucer’s new poli-sci-fi thriller “Queens are Wild” will be e-published later this summer. More teasers to follow at queensarewild.wordpress.com.
