John Horton Conway, a famous mathematician, Princeton professor, and creator of the “Game of Life”, passed away this past weekend due to complications from COVID-19. We’d like to honor Conway’s life and highlight his works that we have in our collection. One of Conway’s works, Winning Ways for Your Mathematical Plays, is a three-volume series about mathematical games, all of which are available as e-books in our collection. You can access them here:

Winning Ways for Your Mathematical Plays: Volume 1
Winning Ways for Your Mathematical Plays: Volume 2
Winning Ways for Your Mathematical Plays: Volume 3

We hope you enjoy this series, and that you are all staying safe and healthy.
