No offense taken. I have heard that too about Mr. Miller, just wanted to remind people that, while he was definitely not running around everybody, everything all the time, he has discussed magic and recorded his thoughts on it..

Re: A New Edition of Greater Magic is Coming

Richard,
is the new edition going to contain Greater Magic, More Greater Magic and The Lost Notebooks?
Or material that was excluded/left out, or recently discovered?

The only hope i have for the new edition is that it has more general magic besides just card magic...
