A Year of The Kenilworthian

As parents often say at their child's first birthday, "It all went by so fast." A year ago today I made my first post as The Kenilworthian, in which I discussed the origin of that odd (if relatively unique) moniker, and now here we are 365 days and over 200 posts later.
I thought I'd use this one year anniversary to offer you some of my "greatest hits." Especially if you are a new reader of my blog, you may appreciate this selected list in six categories: Opening Analysis, Essays and Reviews, Annotated Games, News and Compiled Links, Bibliographies, and Instruction. You can access other pieces from the days before my blog via the Articles page of the KCC website. And games posted in the first three months of the blog, before I started posting them in web-viewable java-applet form, can be seen at the Kenilworth Chess Club Quarterly, Volume 1A and Volume 1B. I am as stunned as you might be at my productivity, especially considering that this represents less than half of my total output. I think it may be time to move on to other things....
