Re: Paul Stone & The Unique Magic Collection

What about being a concerned publisher and backing up a man who has been good to magic? and What about checking out a possible conflict with an important new product (when you know there is one) before going to press? Perhaps Genii could have published its findings along with its positive reviews.

Paul Stone & The Unique Magic Collection

I was surprised to see the recent reviews of Paul Stone's Unique Magic Collection in the January and February issues of Genii. The products look great and I am sure they are, but USA sales rights remain unresolved. Paul Stone gave exclusive USA sales rights to Stevens Magic Emporium in 1982. After a...

Re: John Carney Workshop in San Francisco, April 7

James Hamilton, judging by the email and street address. James knows how to host a great lecture, plus his apartment is cool from a magic collectors perspective.

Of course, Carney's lecture is awesome! :)

Re: The Magic of Ascanio: The Structural Conception of Magic

Re: New Ken Brooke Collectible Series

As I understand it, Paul Stone is not the sole owner of the rights to manufacture and distribute the Ken Brooke line, most especially in the USA. Indeed, Stevens Magic Emporium has taken legal action against any distribution of the Ken Brooke Range in America dating back to the year 1982 when they w...
