Today I got the English edition. Just had a quick look, maybe I overlooked something.

Every second line a shot at Sveshnikov. He doesn't seem to mention any other books.
The newest quoted game I could find is from 2011, most are older.
He claims to have created a new standard for opening books having used a "supercomputer". On the next page he details this as Houdini 2 pro running on a quadcore PC ?!
Strange book.
Another strange example: In the Novosibirsk he claims an edge after 11. Ne3 Ne7 12. c3! but after 11.c3 Ne7 only mentions 12. Nxe7.

But it's not without humor. Beginning the chapter on 10.-f5 (no Novosibirsk) he writes
"You probably already miss my references to the fundamental book by Sveshnikov. The explanation is really very simple: He devotes less than two pages to the move 10.-Bg7, one that we have been discussing in the last 18 chapters, so I had nothing to which to refer"

As already said he doesn't mention any other authors at all.

There were a lot of shots at him. And that was on a small sample size. The two must have a very bad relationship.

I noticed a shot at Sveshnikov in the text. Ouch.

Looking at it again, I cannot tell for sure if it's a repertoire book or not, but if it is, I guess that explains the absence of the Novosibirsk.

It seems like everyone recommends 10...f5, so it would be nice to have some coverage of 10...Bg7 as well (assuming it's still playable).

200 chapters!!

I'm still working through Kotronias' book, so I doubt I will add this one to my collection anytime soon (probably never).

It looks like a pretty comprehensive overview of the entire opening, but based on the excerpt, isn't the Novosibirsk missing?

Taking the p*** I'm afraid. There was a post about on the Quality Chess blog at some point, they had some discussion and the publishers agreed to not copy the GM Rep style.


That wasn't too clear and I can't edit the post it seems: to be clear, Quality Chess talked to Russian Chess House after this was published and RCH agreed not to do it anymore.

Obviously Timoscenko searched & found a new publisher for his book,
Russell Enterprises has annouced this book now for September 2018.
There´s already an excerpt with a ToC and a foreword by Garry himself:

IM Translator converted it into English as this: 
"Grandmaster Repertoire. Sicilian Defense. Chelyabinsk option Timoshchenko GA Publishing house: Russian CHESS House".  The web page states that is was printed, 2016, and it does look like a QC book.  You may want to ask QC: "http://www.qualitychess.co.uk/contact.htm"
Do not see it listed on the English website.

GM REP: The Chelyabinsk Variation by GM Timoscenko

One of the pioneers of the variation in the 70s wrote a book that seems to be a QC publication - 656 pages in QC-layout and format, hardcover:

http://www.chessm.ru/grossmejsterskij-repertuar-sicilianskaya-zaschita-/

There are 3 basic differences: the book is written in Russian only, it's almost 3x cheaper than normal QC hardcovers and a foreword was written by G. Kasparov!

I wonder if and when (and published by whom!) it will be released in English.

Anyone got it? What's your impressions?
