Today I received issue #9 of Bill Goldman's Bar & Grill and all I can say is "Bill is magic's best kept secret!)and I hope for my sake it stays that way.
What it lacks in pages (only 8, but strong pages) it's full of great useable magic.
issue #9 includes:
"The Rise of the Pyramid":This takes a idea by Jay Sankey or Paul Harris (take your pick, they both lay claim)called "Pyramid" and sends it into another dimension. I can't say anymore without giving to much away but the title is a clue.
"Mercury Rising":by Joe DiPietro. A rising card folded up in a enigma!
"The Shape of Things to Come": not so much a effect as a tool to produce endless miracles with a deck of cards.
"Countdown": a new and ingenioue take on the 21 card trick that might just fool your magic buddies.
Plus Bill talks about "Perception and Perspective" in a interesting rant.
My next purchase will be the seven back issues that I am missing to complete this wonderful set.
Only available direct from Bill at his website at
While your there please overlook "One for the Money" and "Two for the Show". You won't get any use out of these so leave them to me.
