Such variety! 2,3,movers, helpmate, selfmate, fairies. With such abundant talent, surprising Bulgaria does not participate in WCCT.

All outstanding problems. I have already ordered some of books of Petkov. Recently I acquired a copy of the book: 'Israeli chess Problem Art' and loved it. I am sure a book on Bulgarian chess problems should be equally valuable.

Hello Ram. Thank you for your comments. Yes, book with selected compositions by bulgarian composers is good idea, but we have to see will it be possible or not.
