The Magic of Charles Sanders Peirce

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

I forgot to mention, in the same issue of Ibidem, Elmsley poses his card problem that Diaconis and Graham address in their paper cited above.
