Re: Royal road to card magic

The Zarrow Shuffle is not in Greater Magic. You are referring to an older shuffle (which also appears in Erdnase) where there is no cover.

Re: ERDNASE

Selling yet another copy of the original text with no new text ... one can only ask why.

If you're going to add photographs, why not add 200 (certainly a more reasonable number) instead of 100?

$200?

Re: New John Thompson Book

The author can sign loose pages, which are then machine tipped between the first printed page and the front endsheet, or sign self-adhesive bookplates (not gummed labels).

Every single deluxe edition of a book where a page is signed by the author is done using the first method.

Re: New John Thompson Book

The practice of having an author sign a self-adhesive bookplate, and then adhering that to the endsheet, has been common for many many years. Decades!

Our deluxe edition copies of Labyrinth were done this way.

And the next book I publish will also be signed by the author (every copy).

A copyright date could have preceded the actual distribution of the book by many months. Even an ad appearing in a magazine is no guarantee that the book was actually be shipped on that date. It could have been months later.
