I found a card I received from Busby in the early '90's when I ordered my set of machined stainless PF cups from him. It's labeled "An Important Announcement Concerning Paul Fox Super Magical Effects Manufactured by Danny Dew". I will not quote the contents in its entirely (4 paragraphs), out of respect for Mr. Busbys jealously guarded copyright on the words on this card, but in light of recent events I find the wording of the card fascinating:
"...all [PF] effects ....will now be sold by.. Jeff Busby"
"[Danny Dew] feels that this line should be continued."
"Jeff Busby has taken on the responsibility of selling these effects for Danny Dew."
Now, being reather familiar with Busbys wordsmithing in his, shall we say, creative descriptions of various tricks he's sold in the past, I find it fascinating that while this document indicates he will be selling PF properties, it never ever claims that he bought those rights :) . I find it hard to believe that this is unintentional, again, given Busbys careful word choice in other things he's written. Could this be one of the more rare cases of truth in advertising? :)
