Re: Book of the Month: CoinMagic

I'm sorry it took so long for a response to this month's book selection - But I just can't come up with any superlatives that haven't already been applied to this book Locally the dealer that had this book for sale was using Sol Stone's HUNG COIN to push sales - Worked - The first non-gimmicked coin...

Re: eBooks: looking for users

Hi Mr. Pinard: This is a subject I'm passionate over. I buy and read between 4,000 and 6,000 dollars worth of books annually for the last 20 years, most of them novels - lately, lots of magical publications (I wish I was smart enough to argue with Mr. Kaufman and Mr Racherbaumer about the future of ...

I agree with Mr. Munari - Roger Klause is one of my personal heros - I've not seen him for about 6-7 years but, I think he "hits" on all the parameters set by Mr Racherbaumer I spent a bunch of time with Mr Klause during one of the desert seminars several years ago along with Steve Ehlers ...
