Re: Siamese Twins by Bill Goodwin

Still waiting for Mr. Goodwin to make good on the remainder of my Penumbra subscription. After that, and only after that,I may elect to give him more of my money.

Re: TRIAD :: Bill Goodwin

Speaking of Mr.Goodwin, any chance anyone will ever see another issue of Penumbra? Perhaps subscribers to Penumbra (all of whom have been left high and dry)should get a discount on Triad?? Perhaps Triad will be published in the next issue of Penumbra??

Re: sick and tired of flatulent magic reviews - www.25offmagic.com

Michael Close's review in "Magic" exposed more about the Predator than Nagler and I don't hear anyone complaining about him. After reading Close's review (a very well-written and accurate review I might add) I bought the Predator anyway and am thrilled. I don't believe my value was comprom...

Dear Mr. Psychic: Im sure you are correct about everything you say.

Re: 2 person mentalism

Mr. Psychic:
I think the term you were looking for is grifter, not grafter. A grafter whould relate to one who unites (a shoot or bud) with a growing plant by insertion or by placing it in close contact. A grifter is one who obtains money dishonestly.

Re: Ace assemblies

Jim Swain's psychic aces which was published in Genii sometime last year is very good. The bad news is that it requires a bottom deal. The good news is that the bottoms need to be done from a small packet so they aren't too difficult.
