My Website (www.JonRacherbaumer.com
) is still working; however, it has been an up-and-down project with at least four fallow, quiet periods. The first hiccup was Katrina, which produced an period of low production. Then my five-year stint working at M-U-M to produce lots of content on a monthly basis. I also wrote two books and did work for Genii. Ive been working on several books during the past four years: One for Gregory Wilson on Coffee Magic, the long-suffering Grippo book, and the biography of Richard Turner, now coming in at 120,000 wordsplus two novels that were begun in 1988. Recent manuscripts added to the Website are OIL & QUEENS, THE BOOK OF INTERCHANGES, REAL-GONE ACES, AVATAR, and a few others. There are over 32 cutting-edge, downloadable e-books, manuscripts, and documents on the site
plus 146 tricks, 24 essays, 10 reviews, and 19 provenance bulletins. I ran a couple of ads to alert bargain-hunters and serious students of close-up that for the INVESTMENT of $50, they can obtain books that would normally cost over $500.00 for one-tenth the cost. By the way, they can also access Ed Marlos grounding breaking Riffle Shuffle Systems, Patented Shuffle, Riffle Shuffle Finale, and Faro Controlled Miraclesmanuscripts privately sold for hundreds of dollars.
Also available are Hofzinsers Lost Ace-Problem, The Definitive Slip Cut, 21-Card Trick, The Legendary Kabbala, Synergistic Sandwiches, Compleat K.M. Move, Legendary Hierophant, Universal Card, Arch Triumphs, Back to the Future, Big-Easy Card Cunning, Clockwork, Foursome, Further Flight, Good Turns, Unlimited, Avatar, Discourse on a Move, Redoubling the Double Cut, Dust Motes, Who was Gombert?, Ladies on the Loose, Dreamwork, Hyper Twist, Facsimile 4, Grifty Business, Hat Drop Lecture, Think Ace, and Psi Tri Lecture
I plan to keep those on my site for another six weeks. Then they will be available in a CATALOGUE as separate items for $5-$10 each. Then I will decide what to do with offering a Premium Deal. I also plan to add video and audio sections. My primary goal and purpose is to have a central archive and to pass on some savings to my secret sharers. The Website will become much more robust in the coming year or two
Meanwhile, Im still barking in Genii, in print and online.
I appreciate the interest and support over the yearsI also appreciate the birthday wishes. (John Carney and I share the same birthdayonly he is much younger.) Otherwise, some of us are definitely in the home-stretch these days. My focus is on preserving legacies.mine and others
