Mr. Miesel (is he still with us?)
Bill Miesel is an amazingly creative card man, and he's very much with us. He publishes the quarterly "Precursor" with Ed Eckl. The publication is subtitled "A magazine of innovation." Issue #86 (or LXXXVI in Precursor-ese) is devoted to gambling demonstrations by Tony Econ.
Precursor is $21 for three issues ($25 abroad) from Ed Eckl, 3 Gregg St., Beverly, MA 01915-2913 and the editorial offices of Mr. Miesel (pronounced as in "measles," by the way) are 2215 Myrtle St., Erie, PA 1650-2643. They don't admit to e-mail.
It is one of my very favorite publications. Hey -- I even had a trick in there a few issues back!
