New Issue of Prolix in the Mail from Karl Fulves

Postby Richard Kaufman » November 2nd, 2009, 6:54 pm

Subject says it all: a new issue of Prolix in the mail from Karl Fulves. This one comes with a few envelopes of props, plus issues three and four of a new supplementary little magazine. The Prolix issue contains some unpublished stuff from Derek Dingle and Slydini--not major items, but good ideas nevertheless.

Send Fulves a note by snail mail for information: that's the only way to contact him:

First: a note to Karl is not sufficient. You must enclose a stanped, self-addressed envelope if you desire a response.

Second -- Karl no longer wishes to deal with the hassles of overseas mail. So, dzejdzej, if you're not in the U.S. you'll have to find someone to do your corresponding for you and have that person forward the received material to you.

Sometimes H&R Magic Books has Karl's material.

My Prolix #6 arrived 2 days ago. Er, or most of it.

I received one padded envelope marked "1/2" in magic marker. Inside were:

Prolix #6
Xtra Credit #3 and #4
Packing List
string
flexagon
3 paperclips

Questions for other recipients:

1) The packing list says "Subscribers get dice of six different colors," but I received no dice. Question: Should I expect them in a separate mailing, perhaps to be labeled "2/2"?

2) The packing list also says: "Getting string, poker chips, dice and blocks into the same package requires a separate skill set. Please use care in unpacking the material that comes with this issue." Questions: (a) Is "poker chips" a misprint for "paper clips"? (b) Does the mention of "into the same package" suggest that there will be no separate package "2/2", and I should contact Karl re: the absent dice?

I realize the mystery will likely clear itself up with the probable arrival of mailing "2/2" in a few days, but perhaps another subscriber might enlighten me without that wait...

I also received only the first package, also marked 1 of 2, and am waiting for number 2.
Every day I wait for number 2.

Together with package #1, this issue is quite the bountiful cornucopia at harvest time!
