David Britland lives in London - works as a freelance researcher & advisor for television companies, among other things. In my opinion he is one of the most creative thinkers in magic. He is the same age as me, which makes him mature yet, youthful :)

You can check out some of his books & tricks at www.martinbreese.com - you should be able to obtain most of these from some USA dealers.

Best Wishes

Peter

You shouldn't put a comma before the word 'and' Richard. ;)

You mean- after [the] and/or, (or), after- my name? Damn punctuation; where's Harry Lorayne- when, you; need him! ...

Euan
Euan, that comma is commonly omitted in the UK and commonly used in the U.S. For a more detailed review of the practice, check out the chapter "That'll do, Comma" for information on the "Oxford comma" in the book Eats, Shoots and Leaves. Even Ms. Truss, a self-proclaimed punctuation purist, calls out that there is no strict rule on using that comma. It all depends on the user's preference - and can be used to clarify and provide color (or is that colour?) to the writing.
