Re: GENII column Alexander de Cova

Thank you, Joe, for this long post! I feel flattered. To clear up: I didn't want to blame anyone. I was just wondering and asking myself whether maybe the material is "outdated" and not "hip" enough - which is undoubtedly true. But then, it is my material and has been used in the...

Re: GENII column Alexander de Cova

Hello Joe, first of all my apologies for the delay. The printer made a bad mistake, so the first books were trash. It was actually my fault, because I send the wrong PDF format and color profile, but I didn't notice this. So I had to give the order to reprint the books, which is happening right now....

GENII column Alexander de Cova

First of all, I would like to thank Richard Kaufman for inviting me to have a column in GENII magazine. Quite an honour and I hope you are enjoying my small contributions so far. In the first essay I dealt with the trick "Forte-X", and a friend wrote in that I was riffing on Paul Curry's &...

Re: Books Scheduled for 2018?

NOTAS is published by myself, because until now I didn't find a publisher yet (but then - I didn't search one either). Mark Zacharias is already proofreading some of the stuff (need proofreaders!). Graphics and photos are ready. I am working on little videoclips that show the various moves/routines,...

Re: Daryl's Death at The Magic Castle

What a [censored] this discussion is. I suffer from depression for many years. I went through a suicide attempt. I faced that 'demon' already, and also that helpless feeling. There is NO need for anyone to know that 'details'. If Daryl suicided, then it is so. No f*** need for any curious magician t...

Re: 7 Wonders by John Guastaferro

@Tom: That is a very detailed "review". But then - it is almost possible to reconstruct the tricks from you description alone. And that is not in favour of John, because he wants to sell his ebooks. I think detailed descriptions like yours are going a little bit too far. Of course I am awa...

Re: Alexander de Cova's Scrapobook Magazine

@Don - I sent out the PDF manually to you this morning. Sorry for the time delay, but it's different time zones. Still don't understand why you didn't get an e-mail with the download link. Also, I wrote to you to login into your account, there are your downloads as well. Might be a good idea as well...

Ordering books from RK

Richard: Which is the best way to order some books from? Do you have a website dealing only with that? Or should I mail you?
The only problem is that it must be shipped to Vienna, Austria. Would that be a problem for you?
It seems to make sense to order a bunch of them, to save shipping?
Tnx, Alex

Re: Real Secrets Trick of the Month Club...

RS has CLEAR rules. Rules are there to be followed and acted upon. Some people always think they must or have the right to break the rules and wonder when they get punished. I myself think it is very well done what they do, being a creator that has been ripped off many times I fully understand the r...
