Pavel Houser (born 1972) wrote several tens of stories with the chess theme, the book presents 22 of them. One story is usually 6-8 pages long and the title of the last story Cernobila cesta gave name to the book.

Mario Matous (1947-2013) is considered as one of the best Czech endgame study composers - if not the best one. He is also well-known worldwide.

The book also includes short biographical articles about the authors and their photos.
