Re: ERDNASE

If you were seriously trying to hide your identity- not so the public doesnt know but so anyone you may know personally doesnt figure it out- would you just reverse your name? Why are you assuming this is what Erdnase was trying to do? It could be that he didn't really care, and it's just an accide...

Re: ERDNASE

The tired issue of trying to put a deck of cards in his hands- that is an invalid argument. It's not at all invalid, but it's certainly Chris's argument! Indeed many (if not all) of your points are Chris's points! Interesting. Chris knows I agree with him - so what. I dont think you could prove he ...

Re: ERDNASE

To me that made more sense. He just thought it was a good name to use as it was a word he was familiar with. Why cant it just be that simple?. To others it makes more sense that the author left behind clues for readers to follow a trail. A reversal or anagram of his name is one clue. You suggest re...

Re: The Hunt For Erdnase

Performer - why cant someone interested in magic, learn a bunch of card tricks and then at some point play cards, start using some slieght of hand to cheat, then start a deep study of cheating techniques, then become a cardsharp? That doesnt seem too far fetched for me. Because magicians have led s...

Re: The Hunt For Erdnase

Well I like the 'earth nose' trail. I also like the anagram but thats just because I like anagrams. It just doesnt seem likely to me that this is the case here. My thought is if he wanted to hide his name, why risk it on a simple anagram? Too easy to figure out from those around him that may have be...

Re: The Hunt For Erdnase

Leonard- to be exact, we should be looking at authors that would have set a precedent in the 1800's. Buckethead? Jim Morrison? That is hilarious.
Makes more sense that Erdnase is the german nickname "earth nose" and that our author was of German descent.

Bill... really? You name two authors closely related to the research on Erdnase? Give me a break- the theory that Erdnase swapped his letters around surely gave them the idea to do that with their names! Are you kidding? Name two non- magicians because most magicians are aware of this theory and the...

Re: The Hunt For Erdnase

Mr Leonard, please pardon my hyperbolic absolute but please name me one author
in the last 120 years that has simply scrambled the letters of his true name to arrive at a pseudonym so that I may humbly stand corrected.
I like the German 'Erdnase nickname' theory. It makes more sense to me.

Wow! What a terrible review. Now I know not to trust John Lovicks reviews. That was grossly over biased IMHO.

Re: Cards with slots

Not sure if it's the same thing I saw.

I could swear it was maybe in Loadstones or something. It wa...

Hello, Im trying to find which issue in the last few years had an article about cutting slots in the playing cards so that when you turn them they change position in a fan of cards. Does anyone recall this article from few years ago?

This is a book printed in 1859 that a used bookstore friend of mine has for sale. I'm interested if the contents is worth studying. Has anyone ever heard of it or read it? Can anyone offer a review?

Oil and water question

Is anyone familiar with the version of oil and water that uses red and blue backed cards? I think it uses 3 red and 3 black pipped cards, the backs of three are red and the backs of three are blue. Richard, Jon, or someone must know this version. Thanks.
