Poul Anderson (1926-2001) wrote a science fiction article on chess called 'The Immortal Game,' which appeared in Fantasy & Science Fiction in February, 1954. The computerized chess pieces don't know they're merely acting out old moves from the famous Anderssen-Kieseritsky game played in 1851, and develop various strange delusions involving free will, loyalty, melodrama, and prose.
