Some of you might find of interest that last week I spent
quality time with John Bannon while he was in Los Angeles on business.
John, an old DC buddy, continues to spend too much time practicing law
but says he is almost finished with his latest book (tentatively titled
"Dear Mr. Fantasy"). He showed me an item from the book and
although I had to promise to keep it tight, I am allowed to report that
it kicked my butt and is powerfully commercial. I can also report that
about a year ago I saw John do a forthcoming card routine for laymen at
the Magic Castle while we were hanging out, and it got a mind-blowing
response from two guys who came across as "been there, done that" urbane
businessmen. John's best estimate is that the book will be out by early next year.
By the way, Richard, when are you doing a profile/feature on John?
