How about making a completely fictitious one and running it in the April issue? Something where his illustrator tells all and the contributers explain how he got them to donate items. You have talented writers at Genii. Perhaps they could take it on as a creative (and intentionally humorous) item?Originally posted by Richard Kaufman:
I've been trying to get Karl Fulves agree to be the subject of an interview or cover story for seven years. He's simply not interested.
It's called New York Transpo, and the actual effect is not really a fusion: you start and end with two cards, as opposed to starting with two cards and ending with one. The effect, as Peter's presentation outlines, is transposing the backs of the cards. It's a minor difference, but it should be mentioned for the sake of clarity. Peter does, however, cite "Forgery" (which IS a fusion-plot) as the inspiration for the climax.Originally posted by Sam Kesler:
And don't forget Peter Samelson's fusion plot in Theatrical Close-up 1984(?) (I forget the name and don't have the book in front of me).
Not so much a "version" as the original.And of course Wesley James' version called Forgery.
Would this be his "New York Transpo" item on page 73? He credits Wes James in the book.Originally posted by Sam Kesler:

Meir Yedid also published his "Signa-Fusion" in 1982 (see Incredible Close-Up magic), but unlike the effect in Cardworks wherein the end result is a double-backed card, Meir had one person sign the back of one card and a second person sign the face of another card, then those two cards fused together between his palms.Originally posted by Richard Kaufman:
The actual published start of this is the trick Fusion in my book CardWorks. This is something that David Arthur, Gene Maze, and I worked out in 1981. It was published in 1982.
That title seems more in line with Derek Dingle's humor, and may also be the name of Jerry Sadowitz's All Backs routine.Originally posted by Tom Stone:
