Re: Save $50 on Martin Gardner's Impromptu

Sad story indeed! And probably a sure winner for another Houdin Award or what not, for the longest running pre-sale announcement in recent magic history. Glad that I saved more than 50$ by not jumping on that train! Luckily I found an original copy for less than 70$ some time ago. Alas, as we all kn...

Re: Wonderball

Not sure, Craig.

Those wonderballs don't look like the real thing(s) to me. But if it helps pushing up sales...

In any case, this is probably the most risqué ad to appear in one of those prudent American magic magazines since the days of Melanie Kerr, isn't it?!

Re: anyone who knows this magician?

Close, but not quite right. I am pretty sure this is another German master from the 70s/80s, Manfred Cattarius, performing with his wife as "Les Cattarius". They won the German national championship of the Magic Circle in 1978 in the "general magic with music" category. (Incident...

Question about old MAGIC CAULDRON issues

Hello fellow collectors,

with regard to the history of magic postage stamps we are looking for two old files of The Magic Cauldron magazine, particularly number 44 and 61 (from 1972/1976 resp.). They do not seem to be available online.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Re: April Issue of Genii with J.C. Wagner On the Cover Winging Your Way

Sadly, March issue is still missing, but replacement seems to be on its way. Thank you!

According to some other German forums, more March issues seems to be missing or late then usual. You may want to check with your distributor on that, Mr. Kaufman.

Re: 2009 NMO Houdini Awards Announced

Wow, congratulations on three nominations for your own award (or the one you are promoting here)!

How many members does the New Magic Order assemble? Is it something like the IMS?

oh, just add about 15 more categories per year, and the IMS' Merlin Award may be history...

Good luck!!!

Re: Rumor that Cellini has Had a Stroke

Comparing donations or counting get-well cards seems meaningless to me.

Maybe you or your father would have gotten them (or more) if you had asked for them?

Maybe Jim Cellini would not have gotten any support were it not for people like Gazzo or Frank Starsinic taking admirable actions?
