Post has been seriously slow this year. I've had to re-learn patience.

Only slow from the US it seems - I received a package today from Japan which has taken just 4 days, and at a fraction of the cost. (Thanks Hitomi).

My blue sack has arrived - I've had a fun few hours looking through it. Thank you, Liz!
Out of interest, why did you not include the later Magicanas? Was it quality deterioration, or are you planning Magicana 2? ('Just when you thought it was safe it get out your cards again')

Richard answers this in the last paragraph of his Publisher's Note, on page 13.

The book is already as large and heavy as it can be.

This book is great! However - why does some of the writing just stop mid sentence? Bottom of page 146 is an example, but there are a number of similar problems so far through the book.

Most of those issues are the way it was originally published.

Ive just checked the example above in the Genii archive and there’s an entire page missing from the book which was originally published in the magazine.

Page 77 is the same. A full page in the original missing from the book. And page 107.

You could do us all a favor by posting where to find in the missing page in the archives. (Presuming you've done that.) I'll just print it out and insert it into the book.

I have compiled the missing pages (that I'm aware of so far) into a PDF using the pages from the Genii archive.

If you have the book, you have everything you need to view the PDF.

Thank you, Mr. Turner--really helpful!

(For prospective purchasers of the book, there was really only one missing page that contained the procedure for ending the trick described that month. I would not let that stop me from purchasing the book--it's terrific!)

The book is terrific and hopefully this issue won't put off any purchases. My hat is off to Mr. Kaufman for putting this book out and to Mr. Turner for his thoughtful compilation of the missing pages. I am enjoying this book immensely. Seems like Mr. Kaufman is only hitting home runs these days. Can't wait to see what is next.
