Books on chess engines RRS feed

    I`m thinking about trying to build my first personal (not taken from book exercises) training program in C#. I thought about a chess engine, so that I can get used to some search algorithms in practice. I have already read about books that guide people exactly on building chess engines. In fact, I would like to use such a tutorial in order to build a Shogi engine (japanese chess), which will have some different rules and, probably, very different heuristics, but should use the same basic structure (I imagine).

    I thought about going through the engine design, then trying to integrate some databases and, finally, make it play on the net, such that I would cover those three aspects of programming while studying and having some fun, at the same time.

    Is there a good book you would recommend?
