Re: Real Secrets - New Stuff 2-28-13

I had a problem printing out the instructions for the new effect until I realized that Firefox now has a built in PDF reader that does not allow you to open the document in Acrobat. The Firefox reader printed a blank document with the Real Secrets heading. I changed the settings so that Adobe now op...

Re: Leffler Suitcase Table and Pearl Trap Table For Sale - LA area only

Thank you, erdnasephile for the kind words. In answer to an e-mail question I received I am selling these two items because I am moving to Spain and shipping these two items would be cost prohibitive. If I were continuing to work here in California, I would be using these same two tables.

Re: New Book on French Magicians by Brit Anthropologist

Given the fact that the book was spawned from his Doctoral Thesis there are parts of the book that are very technical and theoretical and it takes some effort to get through them. Having said that, the book is a very enjoyable and enlightening read. Unlike SLEIGHT OF MIND, no secrets are revealed. M...

Name of This Effect?

I am trying to track down the origin or the inventor of a card effect that was taught to me by Dean Dill many years ago and that appears to be well known in Spain. Neither Dean nor the Spanish magicians with whom I have spoken know anything about the creator of the effect. It is an effect in which t...
