Mr. Biro,

I was wondering how you became acquainted with Mr. Futagawa? I remember seeing your picture in his book along side Gerald Kosky, Daniel Cros, Jerry Andrus and Ross Bertram and decided to look your material up. And I'm glad I did.....

Futagawa-San was proficient in English, so he acted as translator for my lectures in Japan. We hit it off and became friends. He's been here a few times.

Funny Politically Incorrect bit... (but is true). The Tickets for my lecture said: "RECTURE".

Have you written any material on coin magic? Lecture notes or books?

No books, but Johnny Thompson, in his lectues uses and explains a bit I created using a glass for a coins through table. It may be in Tarbell 7. I also have a stand up coins through table with a "hoo coin" dtht I published in Pete's Leaflets. A long time ago.

And I recently invented a new type shell with a pivoting pin that Joe Porper makes in poker chips.

I will do some more digging and update this answer later.

Pete you're stand up coin routine with the hoo coin is Tarbell 7. The only other one I know you had for coins thru table was one you named "Kneet"? that I had read in the Real Works column in Genii.

I also have this book. Great picture of you in the back, in the company of great masters of the past. Any memories concerning the book itself, the photo session?? ps, it's a fantastic little book, published in 1978!!!

No, as a matter of fact I didn't know a photo of me was going to be in the book. I haven't seen the book for some time and don't have it anymore as I sold off most of my library.
