One thought on “Caissa has ceased publication

  1. I am very sorry that Caissa has passed on. It is such a shame that chess magazines seem to have such short lives. Perhaps Caissa can appear as an online product? I am sure that the internet must make it very difficult for paper products. Somehow the publishing world has got to come to terms with the internet. I am sure that there must be a way of fusing the two . Anyway, good luck Mario and thanks for trying. Adrian
