The Frankenstein-Dracula Variation in the Vienna Game of Chess
The Frankenstein–Dracula Variation (1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Bc4 Nxe4!?) of the Vienna Game is a monstrous thicket of complications which still have not been fully explored. The opening leads to fascinating positions which will bring enjoyment both in tournament and correspondence play. Although some theorists have treated the variation as dead and buried, experiments have managed to bring the monster variation back to life for Black, and it can now be considered fully playable.
National Master Eric Schiller presents an overview of contemporary theory, historical background, over 200 complete games and atmospheric excerpts from the original Frankenstein and Dracula stories in a monograph which aims to be both entertaining and instructive.
Eric Schiller is an American chess player, trainer, arbiter and one of the most prolific authors of books on chess in the 20th century. Schiller was arbiter for the Kasparov-Kramnik World Chess Championship match in 2000. He has often been a news reporter, reporting on Chess Olympiads and World Chess Championship matches. Schiller was the arbiter for the Staunton Memorial tournament in London in 2005, 2007 and 2008. Schiller has written over 100 chess books, more than any other author of the genre in the 20th century except Fred Reinfeld and Raymond Keene.
