Thurston Award: Martin Grams hands down the best customer service I've ever received.

Can I just add however, that I believe that the magic marketplace has become quite distorted. The expectations of many buyers are just way out of whack with the commercial realities the sellers face. As lovely as it is to receive great service and fast delivery, I appreciate that often sellers are one man bands, they have lives and gigs and holidays and suppliers who let them down and all sorts of considerations that simply aren't my little order. So thank you Martin for your kind service and for going above and beyond... because that's what it is... above and beyond!

On the other side of the coin if you vote someone for the Thurston I am sure that the recipient will appreciate the gesture. Whilst the vote won’t count towards the count I’m pretty sure it would mean something to the recipient. Many of those that go the extra mile are not getting rich off this and tend to get more grief than plaudits so the show of appreciation is worth more where it counts that awards.

I second that, Daisydog! The Alpha Deck is in my experience for laymen just about as close to real magic as it gets. It's not only totally bewildering, it's also extremely smart-structured, uses the gaff in a way that leaves the spectators with no clue at all in and has a nice amount of interaction going. Richard Sanders had delivered again, in my opinion. I LOVED Identity and I LOVE the Alpha Deck. I also like the WPR a lot, but on this one they were totally wrong, I say!

I am surprised that I have not seen Scott Alexander (my vote) nominated for the Thurston award. His innovative routines and recent showmanship DVD's have likely influenced more magicians. There are many deserving and distinguished nominees and Scott is easily among these influencers and visionaries.

Alpha Deck was released more than 10-years ago by Richard Sanders. I agree that it's a terrific effect but it can hardly be considered a "new release".

Oh really? Ooops! I just came back in magic after a 10 year-hiatus and someone recommended this trick to me to me. Right after purchasing it and having performed it a couple times I read Daisydog's post here who voted for it to be no.1 and therefore I assumed it was released this year... Smile But... eh... oh, well...let me tell you: it should have been Trick of the Year 2007!
