I am looking for info on Flying Sorcerers. I have a pinback from the group.I found one reference in ABRA July 13,1957 and pinback is dated 1966. I believe it was a group from England that flew back and forth to the US for magic conventions.Any and all information greatly appreciated.

There is also a mention in Richard's book about Stanley Collins.

In case you don't have a copy of the Stanley Collins book. The only additional info not on MagicPedia that I could see was that Paula Baird chose to travel by sea, rather then flying with all the men.

You should find much information in Abracadabra magazine.

In Genii March 1965, page 385, Gene Gordon writes:
"I just read in Abra that Editor Goodliffe and his Flying Sorcerers will be coming over to the conventions and will make a visit to Niagara Falls so we will try to arrange a day of magic for them and the Ring at Fantasy Island..."

If you subscribe to Genii, you have access to this kind of informations. Simply go to Ask Alexander and write "Flying Sorcerers".

I know they attended an Abbott's Get Together one year. Old "Tops" magazine would have reference to them. I think the Linking Ring would also have references.
