In another post, I mentioned how wonderful FULMINATIONS was, and that I'd like to see it back in Genii. This is to Pete Biro, who also had a nice column back in the day. Pete, what do you feel, in retrospect, were some valuable things you passed along? Any nuggets? Thanks!

I don't know what Pete will say but I think "The Reel Works" was where I encountered Danny Korem's chop cup final load technique which is a killer!

Pete? Am I rememebering correctly?

"The Reel Works": Now there was a great column! Of course I'm biased: I once got an "honorable mention" in a torn & restored card contest. Oh my, but that was a long time ago! Oddly enough the method I came up with I really did “invent” all by my lonesomes. I had never heard of Karrel Fox's "Signa-Tare Card Illusion" until Pete mentioned that my method was a derivative of the Fox effect. After I read that, I immediately went out and bought the Stars of Magic manuscript. I've been doing that T&R card (and later added a little of my own work) since.

All thanks to you, Pete.

Many thanks re "The Reel Works" -- if it doesn't your in deep doo doo...

I wish I could remember all the stuff I wrote about... I understand Racherbaumer has a complete file pulled out of the magazines.

Those were fun days when my work had me travelling EVERYWHERE and with time to lecture, attend conventions everywhere and make hundreds of friends...

stay tooned...
