Re: New book: The Incredible Dr Jaks

There are both regular and collector's editions. I believe it will be reviewed by John Lovick in our March issue.

Re: The Real Secrets Team Returns with Something New

It says both that the exclusive is temporary, and also that it will be sold to Real Secrets members until some particular date "if supplies last" or something like that. I would think it should be one or the other.

Re: Laypersons love Ellusionists!

The "commercial" is absurdly over-produced for what the product is, and it's a little sneaky to have the guy walking down the road with rolled-up sleeves because that's what you're supposed to subconsciously remember. There have been products like this since I was a kid--used to have one. ...

Re: The Heck with Reviews....

You would think that because I'm so close to New York that they would comp me, but no such luck. But it's very good they're making money because that will incite other producers to mount magic shows on Broadway in the future. Hopefully at the right time of year.

Re: faro shuffle

There are people who have referred to the Faro Shuffle as the Perfect Shuffle, so perhaps it should be established that a Perfect Shuffle really means a "perfect" Riffle Shuffle, while a Faro Shuffle is a technique for shuffling.

Re: Respect for Doug Henning

It's not self-fulfilling: it's the economics of business.

And I think we have David Copperfield, David Blaine, Penn & Teller, and Criss Angel to thank for whatever position magic has in the public eye today. Doug Henning did his last live show over a quarter century ago.

Re: Respect for Doug Henning

Doug Henning definitely had the impact that Dustin noted--there's no question about that. But he left no overt visible legacy for anyone 45 or younger to latch onto. No one is performing in that style today. That style, and his personality, was of a certain time.

Re: New book: The Vernon Companion

Giorgio was a very nice guy, but he took no crap from anyone. If he was mean to someone, they probably deserved it. Despite the fact that he disagreed with Vernon about his thoughts on Expert at the Card Table, Tony was close with both Vernon and Larry Jennings.

Re: Tommy Wonder on Tom Stone

Close-up magic is not theater.

Stage magic is theater, and requires a theatrical skill set. But it's not a play, and a good stage magician does not have to be an actor.
