Evan, you are probably the 5th person I've seen say Stash is a worker. Now I must order this. Great deal for $20 flat. Thanks for you're reply!

Re: Dissolve Deck by Francis J. Menotti

Oh wow. The brief ending you gave El Mystico says it all. I knew I had a 'Magic Coloring Book' 'dj vu' moment briefly after seeing this performed. aha! I wasn't sure totally sure though. I am now. Thanks for clearing that up.

I can't find this anywhere on earth. Sold out every where (other than Francis J's site for $25 + $5 S/H, $30 flat). Must really fry fo...

Ahhh... Nope, definitely not Shilling. I'm a producer, and only do magic as a part time hobby, I have no money to make from talking about magic. Just a very excited over grown kid when it comes to magic. Thanks Mr. Goat for the definition.

So my question to you gentlemen is...what is the best version--to each of you? I just received my copy of Strange Travelers, and I have Solomon's version as well. Since I'm serving jury duty...it gives me lots of time to read the Strange Travelers booklet. I already feel it is better than Solomon's ...
