Check To Your King ("Robin Hyde", 1936) - not actually about chess, but a great title.

Master Prim* (J Whitfield Ellison, 1968)

*though not for long
"The chess-board is the world ..... the player on the other side is hidden from us ..... he never overlooks a mistake, or makes the smallest allowance for ignorance."
(He doesn't let you resign and start again, either.)
