Those interested in the finer details of card magic should find this article by Steve Reynolds interesting: ... s-part-one

I "reacted" to that article somewhere else, I believe. Just wanted to keep the record straight - 2 Shuffles Harry was originally published by me in APOCALYPSE (cover item of the August, 1978 issue). And I performed/taught it at magic lectures for years. Point - without a slip cut. I mention not to use a slip cut in the Afterthoughts of the above-mentioned item, where I also mention using Old Reliable - a riffle shuffle idea I originally taught in RIM SHOTS. HL.

Not sure I understand your point. Proper credit, it seems, should be given no matter who the article is about. What does that have to do with the price of eggs?! (The article is also about the slip cut - to which I properly responded. Point?)
