When "Discoverie" ended publication last year, Karl Fulves promised a new periodical to follow, and it has arrived. "Prolix" will be ten issues, a single spiral bound (not comb-bound) 68 page page magazine (as opposed to the troika issues of "Discoverie," "Latter Day Secrets" and "Charlatan" which arrived together). The biggest difference though is the inclusion of apparatus with the issues.
The first issue has items by (hold onto your hats): Dai Vernon, Bob Ostin, Derek Dingle & Fulves, John Scarne, J.K. Hartman, Martin Gardner and others.
The apparatus includes toy cars, odd-size rubber bands, poker chips and other materials so you can perform the tricks right away, instead of thinking about visiting a stationers to find the stuff (which somehow never happens).
This is NOT a monthly magazine. Karl will publish 10 issues at his own pace. If that troubles you, look elsewhere.
The US subscription price is $150. For those of us living abroad it is $240, and Karl has my check. (He does not accept credit cards.)
It's available from Karl Fulves, P.O. Box 433, Teaneck, NJ 07666. And no, he has no website, is not on line, and does not make his phone number available. At least not to me.
