I recently noticed that the trick "Ghost Vision" was reviewed in the December 2006 issue and the January 2007 issue. FYI

Yes, both reviewers wished to comment on the trick. So both reviews were purposefully printed. (Unlike, say, the time when I printed the same trick of Roy Walton's twice in one year--this is before David Acer took over Magicana--and I didn't realize it.)

That's the second time Regal has used that mistaken-second-time gag, and I for one, and I for one am getting damn tired of it.

It's no big deal. For example, "Shuffle Tracking" by James Swain was a good trick when it was published in April 2003,(the Shade issue) and just as good when it was republished in May 2005.

Makes it easier to find in my messy magazine files, because now I have two shots at finding it.

Oh, yeah, I really like Swain's trick a lot, too.

How much? Should we look for it again?

And they darn well will continue reviewing it until they finally get it right this time!
