Kalashnikow DWD by Nicholas Pert
Well that was surprise, another Sicilian DWD but this time another system with ...e5:

My personal opinion is that I slightly prefer L'Ami as presenter compared to Pert, but both are fine still. In any case, I have not seen any material, neither book nor database nor DWD, about Kalashnikow since the Everyman book. But that book was several years ago.

Looks interesting, and author is good. L'Ami should write books too, not sure why he only does DWDs.
