How come no one has done a book on one of the true legends in magic- U.F. Grant? I'd love to see a biography of him along with a republication of his numerous manuscripts, and details of his many, many effects over the years. Is there a reason this hasn't been done?

U.F. "Gen" Grant is a subject dear to my heart.

U.F. Grant is also one of my heroes. Most of my magic act as a child consisted of his stuff. I have a copy of A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF U.F. GRANT MAGIC compiled and annotated by Don Tanner in 1980 and it lists almost 1,500 items without including the MAK Magic line of stuff.

Didn't he sell the one-man dancing handkerchief gimmick, using a record player?
