  • (25.08) Warm welcome to Zoran Gavrilovski, Macedonia! I have a pleasure to show you a very nice problem – see No.116 !

  • (23.08) See just black pieces in a new problem by Michael Grushko – No.115 – a play of 5 Andernach Grasshoppers!
  • (23.08) Welcome to Romanian author, Paul Răican! See just 4 pieces & 3(!!) fairy conditions in a rich play – No.114.

  • I’d like to remind, that you can click on the Original Problems tab on the top to see the whole list of published problems. Problem numbers are links to the problems – click on any number to see the problem. Standard search using Ctrl+F also works for the list.
  • Tourneys, tourneys!.. Let me repeat, that all fairy computer tested problems published at Julia’sFairies participate in informal tourney JF-2012. Thank you very much for so great activity here! And I’d like to remind you about the thematic tourney, with the closing date 15th of October, HS-problems with battery play – Julia’sFairies-HSP-2012 ! (Latvian sweets are really great! 🙂 )

Nice to see that you are active again Raju. I have been using the Diagram utility you cited for quite sometime. It is good. But even even better, you try APWin. It has facility to solve using Popeye and save diagrams also. Has more options for Fairy pieces than ‘Diagram Transfer’

Hi Julia,
Thank you for your invitation to the excellent composer’s tourney. I am not even sure I am a composer, but I shall watch entries with interest.
I started a small blog yesterday http://chessexpo.blogspot.com/ where I put a link to your site, calling it Julia Latvian problems in the description.
(I linked a few other problem sites, Juraj, Vaclav etc. that I visit).
I hope to re-hash a few old themes and explain them to a general audience over the months to come.
