An update from The Works.

The next release will be a triple issue, three separate effects woven together into a single routine much like the first three issues of The Works.

Re: Psience

It's very practical, suited more for a Corporate Show rather than a Publicity Stunt. I feel it is very similar to another method published in a book you may already own, but in Weber fashion he has simplified the method and taken an already practical method and turned it into a real worker.
