Richard, Your books were and still are "State Of The Art". Bring back the good old days when you released a long list of books set to be released . With the advent of videos , books are long disappearing. Please do not let that happen. You set the standard and there is a audience out there that eagarly awaits your books .

Mike, I appreciate the kind remarks, however Genii is now my top priority, and will be for the next 20 years.
As time permits, I will finish the many book projects that partially finished. Some books will be published by me, others by The Genii Corporation--the first from Genii is The Lost Notebooks of John Northern Hilliard. It's due in late October.

Richard,

What is the difference between you and the Genii Corporation?

The Genii Corporation is the company which owns Genii, The Conjurors' Magazine. I am one-quarter of that corporation.
Kaufman and Co. is me and my wife, publishing books.

"however Genii is now my top priority, and will be for the next 20 years."

This statement makes me laugh and laugh. Your priorities are going to change sooooo much in January. Be prepared to forget about everything you ever considered important.

Steve (Hook): Steve (Bryant) is referring to my cookin-in-the-oven-right-now kid who is due to arrive in mid-January.
He's probably right, however those are the types of things one cannot understand until you actually cross that path.

Kids? Ah, yes...the center of one's universe dramatically shifts. Life changes...big time.
However, did the advent and production of my 7 kids change my magic life? Yes, especially when it came to deadlines.

50 + books later, I have great relationships with my kids.
The wives (a-hem)are another story. ;)

Onward...

Richard:

There are, our course, early indications of how much an individual will balance magic versus children in his life. Vernon, who wasn't exactly the Ozzie Nelson of magic,took to calling his second son "Neepie." I'm not sure what Jeanne Vernon thought have having her child so nicknamed, but I doubt Liz would put "Nepomuk" at the top of her list. The real question is "would you?" :)

Every now and then, you read a line that makes you back up a bit. That was one.
