I gave away the very thin bottom for a voodoo doll routine, signed & made by Will Alma (an Australian magician) I kick myself now because I could really use it. And....

The first 3 Albo books I sold years ago.

Re: I am tormented by a recent card trick that has been shown to me...

I can see you're a polite fellow. I'll tell you the secret to
the card trick you described....

The Secret: a short length of string with some gum stuck on the end.

Re: New Steinmeyer/Caveney History of Magic Book Almost Shipping

My problem with the circus book? It was the way it smelled! The glue or something made me unable to buy it. I am very serious. The stink was way too much! We sell a lot of Taschen books through my three bookstores. Smell is usually not the main consideration. I hope the magic one doesn't present a p...

No. I'm talking about my impressions as a youngster watching them both on t.v.

Re: Uri

I agree with that to a point, and it is certainly the point of the Berglas award to Geller. However, Kreskin (and Dunninger before him) predates Geller and was quite popular, though I do think that he became even more so after Geller hit the scene. Dustin I'm old enough to have seen and remembered ...

Re: Uri

I just read the interview and was riveted by it.

( the issue arrived today. Having read the opening posts on this thread days ago,
I expected the cover to have Uri looking like Ernest Thesiger... but he didn't )

Re: The Death of Publishing

The New York Times article had some mistakes. Cody's is not the last general interest bookstore in Berkeley. There is Moe's Books ( 4 floors and doing very well ), Black Oak Books, Shakespeares, and the 2 Pegasus Bookstores ( We broke records this holiday season ) and other stores. Cody's was done i...

Re: centre tear

I corresponded with Mr. Alleman for @ 10 years, sending him billet ideas. He kept telling me how how I'd reinvented the wheel. A couple of times he couldn't find any prior history and published my small ideas ( under my alias ) "the purloined thought" is a unique collectible, a hardcover c...

That's a disappointment.

All-in-all, I'm quite pleased....

Don't have that "total" feeling of satisfaction though.

Re: Cardially Yours by Ed Marlo

Sad to say, titles aren't copyright. Happy to say; these are wonderful & essential titles, reprinted with brand new photographs; a real treat to have them all within a single hardcover, with photos done by the inner circle. ( I began magic life as a dai-hard Vernon fan. I end my magic life as a ...

Re: Dick Martin has passed away

Yeah, My father saw them both live at at a corporate show for the electronic firm he worked for in the 60's/70's; he pointed out to my 8 year old old brain that they were VERY FUNNY.

Charles Fort

I am having a blast reading Jim Steinmeyer's new book, 'Charles Fort ( the man who invented the supernatural) ' It is a surprisingly fun read.

Re: What to Do with your Economic Stimulus Check from the Government

Tear it up?

How will that help me? Unless I already make six figures a year...

No, the best thing I can do is spend part of that check here to support the best things I love in life.

And vote in November, for the possibility of change for the better.
