You must subscribe to Genii in order to receive the book. The cost of your subscription will be less than the cost of the book sold alone. Thanks for the info, Richard.

Re: Premium Quality Playing Cards

Several years back I bought a dozen or so unopened Tahoe decks. I opened one and once I removed the foil, I found the entire deck stuck together like a Paul Harris Solid Deception deck. Very disappointing.

Re: Card magic in Canada

Bob has given you a red herring, Pepe. I think he may be reluctant to admit that there is no card magic in Canada because the Canadian card masters change their name and move to the U.S.

Like David Verner, for example. :)

Re: The Final Piece of the Genii Convention Puzzle: GUY HOLLINGWORTH JUST BOOKED!

I hope Guy will consider performing his Erdnase show so more people will get a chance to see it. I saw it at The Magic Castle and it was a wonderful presentation.

My guess for Dustin's dream addition: Ricky Jay.

Hey Pete,
Is your marking system intended for blue cards as well as red? I wondered because I saw the picture on your site of the red deck and red sharpie and thought perhaps it doesn't work equally as well for both colors. Thanks,

Arrived in Sherman Oaks, CA on January 22. The center spread came loose on my copy but in perfect condition otherwise.

For my money, this particular issue alone is worth the price of a subscription.
