Hello Richard

Any chance of a Williamson's Wonders reprint soon?

Thanks

Under consideration. I haven't kept track of eBay sales (which is how I generally judge demand). Is it easy to find one on eBay? What are the prices like?

I just recently was bidding on a copy on ebay.

I am not experienced in bidding. I thought I had won the bid, but in the last few seconds I was outbid. I had like 3 seconds to bid again. Not enough time.
This one sold for $36. There was another one in the last few days that sold for $42.
I am not aware of any more at this time.

The retail price of a reprint would be either $35 or $40, so it doesn't sound like the demand is huge yet. You should buy one on eBay.

Keep looking for this book Joshua. It'll be worth the effort. I love Williamson's "Money Talks" routine. There are many lessons in that one trick.

Try used magic book dealers like H&R Books in Humble, Texas and Andy Greget from Arizona. Byron Walker is another West Coast book seller. These are all great resources to find used magic books...You don't need E-Bay...

Does Andy Greget and Byron Walker have websites or emails? Thanks.

Unfortunately, neither Andy nor Byron currently has an online presence. But both are happy to field phone calls and are extremely knowledgeable, helpful, fair and honest. Highly recommended, as is George Daily (who does participate occasionally on this forum), when looking for hard to find book at a fair price.

try 'esnipe' - it will put in a 'winning' bid 1 second before auction closes - based on budgets you give it.

Very handy if you HAVE to have it.
