Discuss the latest feature articles in Genii.

Hi!
I don't know it's only me, but am I right to assume gremlins sneaked into Tommy Wonder's interview in the September Genii??? At the top of the second column on page 53, we have two questions by Genii, but only one answer from Mr. Wonder. It seems Tommy's reply to the question about his feelings on Tamariz's theory of False Solutions has been left out the magazine...

Is it only me?

Marco, just double checked it and you are correct--there is a paragraph missing. Here is the question and answer as it should have appeared:

Genii: Still, in Chapter 3, in the paragraph entitled An Examination of Examinations you write, I feel that avoiding suspicion before it can occur is most often the best way to proceed. What do you think of Juan Tamarizs theory of False Solutions? And if you get rid of suspicion, dont you also rid yourself of this tool?

Wonder: That depends on the type of magic you do. If you do magic for kids and suddenly the rope comes out of our pocket and the kids say to themselves Oh, I get it!, then the trick is based on the method. The method becomes the focus and Im not sure thats a good idea. You have to pay attention. Sometimes, you can have the focus on the method, sometimes you can draw attention to a false solution; that gives you the time to do something else and the spectators are a step behind your work. But personally, Im afraid of this method. I dont know, youre making me hesitate I use it myself, so
