The Immaculate Connection by Paul Harris was Volume 2, Number 1 (1983)


Was Karl Fulves technicolor cards from 1974 in the New Stars of Magic series?

As the dates coincide, I think you are right. Therefore, it's Number 6
Also, It's Karl Fulves who has written Incredible Card Tunnel.
I correct the list.

Thanks

Does anyone have a full list of Volume 2?. The ones I have are as follows:

1 - 1983: The Immaculate Connection (Paul Harris)
2 - 1984: Bewildering (Doug Bennett)
3 - 1985: Radical Rebound (Tom Gagnon)
4 - 1987: Synchronicity (Michael Pizzola)
5 - 1992: Spectral Image (Steve Ronson)
6 - 2000: Really Haunted (Doug Edwards)

Is Chris Capehart's 3-ring routine part of Volume 1 or Volume 2? I thought there were only twelve in Volume 1.

Philippe:
Minor correction - Vol. 1 No. 11 is "Bullseye", not "Bulls Eye".

Thanks Edwin

For volume 2, your list is more complete than mine.

on Chris Capehart, I got the information on this site : http://www.qualitymagicbooks.com/?nd=mcb200503

And it's Karl Fulves who has written it.

13 is a strange number to finish on - I wonder if there were any more. And also if there are any more in Vol. 2.

Hi Philippe,

Joe Pecore already mentioned that #4, 1973 is my "Chinatown Poker". If you are able to locate it, please let me know where. A couple of friends are looking for it and I would like to get it for them.

Thank you, Philippe.

Hey Joe, Why don't you tell Forum readers the story about your big book that burned up in the fire?

Hi Richard,

Sorry I took so long to answer your question re my big book that disappeared while in safe hands.

When I replied to Philippe Billot's question about My "Chinatown Poker" in New Stars of Magic, you asked,"Hey Joe, Why don't you tell Forum readers the story about your big book that burned up in the fire?"

I thought you said it in jest.

Then, uou asked why I do not let the readers of the Forum know about it?

Richard, I cant think of what purpose it would serve. Many threads appear on the Forum as to who invented what. Every time I read or hear someone say, Hey, that trick is mineor thats Charlies trick or Sams trick. I always wonder, how does anyone know who first invented a certain trick or move or whatever.

I say first invented because so many things have been re-invented over the years.

One of the nice things about doing magic for 60+ years is, you get to see all those great things being reinvented again and again.

I am not saying stolen because I do not believe they were stolen. With so many guys playing around with a pack of cards, it really is possible that more than one thinks of the same thing without being aware of what the other guys are doing.

While I know that some of the material in my almost book have appeared under someone elses name an published by them, what is there to gain by getting involved in a verbal battle over it.

Anyway, how can I prove that I did create these things when all the guys I first showed them to are DEAD?

Also, I do not care to spend more time and effort talking about the politics of magic than DOING it.

When I was twenty years old I did enough of thatnever again.

To me, there are three reasons I do and love magic. (By the way, I only do cards)

One, I get so much enjoyment and pleasure out of doing it

Two, hopefully, my audiences get as much enjoyment out of watching.

Three, I enjoy watching other magicians do their thing. Thats why I really love DVDs and videos. Not so much for the methods they use, but how they present and perform their stuff. Thats the real magic.

WOW! I said so muchbut, DID I SAY ANYTHING?

In another post, I will tell about an incident between Ed Marlo and me that shows what can happen when rumors get flying. We both got a kick out of it.

Thanks for "listening",

Joe DeStefano

Joe, I actually meant tell the story of why you wrote the book, how big it was (how many items), and what happened to it.

Sorry, Richard. I misunderstood. When I get back later I will write it up. It was an interesting story.
