When Marlo was cranking out the MARLO MAGAZINES, a true cottage industry in those days, he realized that his target audience was comprised of about 300-350 cardmen. At first, he printed 500 copies, which would eventually sell out in drbs and drabs. Later, when the wunnerful-wunnerful world of Xerography took hold, Marlo published about 300 copies and then printed subsequent copies on demand. He did, however, keep meticulous records of who-what-when of each purchase and he signed and numbered each one that was privately sold.
The MAGAZINES, relatively speaking, were huge, spiral-bound, 300 + page pastiches. Marlo always wanted to provide "bang-for-the-buck" and charged only $35 at the time--a real bargain for hard-core cardicians.
Lee Freed owns re-publication rights to everything except the Riffle Shuffle Trilogy and the TEN-HAND POKER DEAL.
