Re: New Karl Fulves Pubs

My package arrived on Friday and let me say that I was expecting less this time around from what Karl said about the new manuscript but was surprised when no less than four manuscripts of varying sizes arrived with assorted props.

I was doubly amazed when I red that Karl is refunding all subscriptions and going to the Honor System. When you believe you have received $150 worth, then you send him a check to cover it. So lets look at the breakdown of that $150.00.

10 issues of Lowdown plus 10 issues of Errata, bonus issues and effects plus props, all for $150. That balances out to $15 an issue. plus priority mail shipping of $11. That leaves Karl $4 to produce the manuscripts and purchase the props. Get the picture? This is a labor of love to Karl, not a profit machine. The material is interesting and even if you don't use anything in your act, the process of working through an effect will teach you to not simply stop when you come up with an idea, but to work through it until you find the gem.

I for one am sending my check immediately and not waiting until I've got my moneys worth, as I got my moneys worth years ago from Karl. This manuscript, perhaps the last, is a gift as far as I'm concerned.

Has any new material in Karl Fulves' Lowdown project been published since issue 1 back in May?

Did anyone else not receive their first issue? or am I the only one. I sent (what I thought) was a very nice
note to Karl
"I very kindly received a note from you in October 2014, saying that
my check for your most recent periodical was cashed. I understand from
the on-line forums that you have sent out the 1st issue, but I have
not yet received a package and I am concerned that it might have
been lost. If I should have received it by now, please let me know
how I might replace the lost issue. I would also like to
take this time to purchases a few additional manuscripts."

No answer, notta, nothing.
Any advice?
Mark

Has anybody received any Lowdown-related materials in the past year since issue 1?

Has anyone heard anything from Karl Fulves lately?

A couple months ago I sent him an SASE requesting a list of what he has currently for sale, a request about subscribing to his current magazine, and some Charles Jordan material that was not in his big book.

I didn't get a response at all, and am wondering if he is still selling stuff, and if he is okay.
