Re: Peter Pellikaan??

His website is up now, and he offers a lot of stuff. I ordered one DVD. I'll try to review it after it arrives. I bought one thing from lybrary.com and am reluctant to order any other single items until I see what is on the DVD.

Peter Pellikaan??

Does anyone have any information about Peter Pellikaan? There are some videos still on Youtube, but his website appears to be gone. I am wondering if there is still a source for his downloads or any other material by him. Thanks for any info.

Re: Xeroxed Marlo Magazine: What would you do?

The seller putting "no refunds" or "no returns" in a listing does not negate Ebay rules. There is a great deal of bogus stuff for sale on Ebay and buyers are not always able to figure that out from photos and descriptions. If I were King, the word "rare" would be banned...

The best bargain I ever got in magic was a set of Paul Fox copper cups direct from Danny Dew for $18, including postage. They look as good today as they did when

Re: Inventing The Ten Card Poker Deal

In Jon's book "Jonah Ploys", he refers to routines in it as "appetizers" for Bob's book. If this is true, and I suspect that it is, Bob's book will be truly spectacular. My money is literally burning a hole in my pocket awaiting its release!

Re: new product

I have had one of these for a while and is has become my favorite wallet. And I have a very large drawer full. Jack Carpenter's method of wrapping the wallet using four rubber bands is incredible. Mr Miller has certainly outdone himself with this one. And, it is also very reasonably underpriced.

Re: ERDNASE

It took me four years to find the name of the man who wrote the Shakespeare works. That name would be William Shakespeare, I believe. Zenner's book on Shakespeare is as wacko as anything you will ever read. It has been out for a while now and most serious Shakespeare scholars have yet to hear of it.
