Sphinx and Early Linking Ring Issues for Sale

Due to the need for more room, I am selling ~300 issues of The Sphinx. They range from Volume 19 #2 (April 1920) to Volume 43 #3 (May 1944), but do not include every issue in-between. Condition varies widely some issues are in fantastic shape others are falling apart. Most early issues and some late...

Re: Satan Is My Buddy

Bob -- yes, the U.S. jokers have the initials U.S. in the corners rather than the pentagram. While I could certainly do the trick with U.S. jokers, I like the touch of the pentagram.

Re: Paul Harris Pointer Anomaly Contest

When I turn anything over side for side it stays the same. When I turn anything over end for end it changes. I too do not see an anomaly.

Re: Magicians on stamps

:) I'd love to see such a set of stamps. We got the Houdini one a couple of years ago, so we might not get another of him. Also it took a lot of hard work to get the post office to agree to that stamp. Anyone know the official submission process?

Re: help with kid magic

For a very different take on performing magic for children you might want to look at Bringing the Wonder of Magic to Children by Brother Shadow (AKA Carl Herron). It was originally published in the December 2003 issue of Linking Ring and is also available from Brother Shadow (broshad@aol.com).

Re: Mark Kalin & Jinger

The thing that I like most about Kalin and Jinger is that they are true partners on stage. Jinger is so much more than just an assistant. In fact on Grand Illusions: The Story of Magic (part 2) DVD, Kalin tells a story about knowing that they were succeeding in what they were attempting to achieve w...

I received my copy yesterday (10/2) here in sunny Santa Clara. Looks like a great issue. The glossy "Genii Wrap" is better than the matte.

Allan Slaight Article, U.S. or Candian Dollars

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the article on Allan Slaight. He's had a fascinating life. I was curious whether the dollar amounts indicated were U.S. or Canadian dollars? In any case he's been very successful both as a magician and businessman.

Re: Magic in Las Vegas

First of all, if you're in Las Vegas, see Mac King if at all possible. The show is very funny and full of great magic.

I've been to the Denny and Lee shop in LV and found the staff very knowledgeable and friendly. Same for Planet of Mirth.
