pretty good bargain for you

This may be a pretty good bargain for you! I will soon be moving from my Water Mill, NY home to Newburyport, MA (because I’m all alone now and want to be near my son, his wife, and my adorable 2-1/2 year-old granddaughter). Most of my books are stored by a large magic company. Whenever they want som...

Re: Marlo variation on the Curry turn over change

Soooo many have told me over the decades that they use/do The Curry Turnover Change just as I taught it way back in 1962 - plus they use some of the effect I taught alongside.

Half-Price Sale

Well, let’s see…I’m going to have to move out of my current residence in the very near future. Won’t have as much storage space, so how about a half-price sale? Well, some may be a bit more than half price, but some may be a bit less! The prices are total for within the U.S.A. Probably not worth it ...

Re: D'Amico Change technical question

Again, nobody ever told me these things, including Larry who I'd see occasionally when in Los Angeles. And I was friendly with Vernon, etc. So, for almost half a century, after I published the item, everyone was very secretive re: derivation.

Re: D'Amico Change technical question

Interesting, Jon. When someone contributed Double-Lift Finesse all those decades ago, I asked all the knowledgeable magicians I knew if they knew the originator. Nobody did. And, Juan contributed other stuff for APOCALYPSE after that, we spoke, he even visited me at home where we had a long magic se...

Re: Inventing The Ten Card Poker Deal

Wow, just saw this thread, read it all. And here I always assumed I has SOMETHING to do with the 10-Card Poker Deal. Doubt it now. Although I've been told that I certainly popularized it when I published my routine back in the 1960s - I think. No big deal.

What I was told by Conjuring Arts - their PDFs ARE made up of images and ARE text searchable. Put in a word and search/find it in any one of my book, all of APOCALYPSE, and so on.
