A further item (C.N. 1893) was published on page 79 of the May-June 1989 issue of our magazine:

Luc Winants (Boirs, Belgium) informs us that virtually the complete run of the Fischer articles can now be consulted via Google Books. Our correspondent has assembled the relevant links on a webpage of the Fédération Echiquéenne Francophone de Belgique.
