I was delighted to see the recent adverts for the bound edition of Pabular Vols 1 and 2, but very disappointed to learn that they were apparently unauthorised. I was on the brink of placing an order, and am now contemplating the CD-ROM instead.
I contacted Martin Breese, who is selling a CD-ROM of the full set of Pabular (because it seems he is the one who actually owns the rights to it) to ask if there was any chance of bound paper editions. He said that Kaufman and Company had shown some interest, so I was wondering if anything is likely to happen in the near or not-so-near future. The CD-ROM would be an excellent reference tool, but personally I would prefer to have a set of bound volumes to leaf through instead of printing out odd pages or else spending even more hours staring at a computer screen than I already do. It was also interesting to hear the comments in a recent posting about the quality of current CD-ROM magic magazines.
Also, I would like to add my support to recent requests on the Genii Forum for a bound edition of Magicana. I find it much easier to remember what book a trick is in than what issue of a magazine it is in, and a collection of all the tricks (including those not actually from the Magicana section) would make a great book.
