Do these guys publish material? What's their status these days?

No, they don't publish now.
But, they have in the past. Persi Diaconis has published several items in books by Harry Lorayne under the pseudonym "R. Sid Spocane."
Steve Freeman published a few things in Genii decades ago.

Not sure of the spelling but another pseudonym used by the Math Professor was George Heubreck (SP?) who was mentioned, I believe, in Hofzinser as his only student?
Stay tooned.

Chris: Interesting you should ask about these two fellas... whom I consider possibly the best card men of our time.

Note: I didn't take notes, or get anything with his name written on it, but today at the Castle Lunch a gentlemen from Spain did a close up card act that fooled the el crappo out of all, moi included... many times.

Impeccable sleights and wonderful plots.
Stay tooned.
