Five by Five

I picked up a copy of the above at Kramien's Jamboree this week-end. Really challanging material! It sez in the intro you were going to do this for other countries. To show my ignorance, did it ever happen?

The Bullet Move is really fun, but do the finger cramps go away after awhile?????????

Ali Bongo, Loren Christopher Michaels, Pete Biro were just great. If you ever get a chance come on out food, magic, and great fun!

Ali Bongo gave Stan his medal for the Inner Circle. Stan was really touched.

Thanks for all of your efforts on our behalf. Back to work on the Bullet Move with a Han Pin Ching.......

I'm sure Richard will respond, but there's "5x5 Scotland" by Peter Duffie. Richard's desire to do a 5x5 France got shot down by some uncooperative folks.

I really love the idea, as obviously does RK, but it may be difficult to market a book by 5 different magicians. "Collection" books like Stephen Minch's "Spectacle" have not done especially well, I believe.

But I'm sure Richard has his own take on this.

"5X5 Scotland" by Peter Duffie is an under-rated book I believe.
It has 3-4 of my favorite tricks ever to perform. One in particular I do all the time.
Nah, I'm not gonna tell ya which ones. You should read them all ;)
