I've been looking to read more of Harry Lorayne's work. I checked out Close-Up Card Magic a long while ago and found it very enjoyable. I wanted to find more of his books, but I took a long break from buying any, since I was still finishing up school and had to save funds. Now that I've been slowly looking for other books again I thought his Apocalypse series would be a great place to continue, since I've heard great things about it and collected anthologies are some of my favorites.

How difficult is it to find these volumes? I can't seem to find volume 1 for sale anywhere, and the few other volumes I can find are being sold for quite a high amount. I'm sure they're worth the price, considering how large the books are, but are there any particular places I should be looking for them?

Thanks for the help!

Mr. Lorayne,

I have looked at your website. That's the first place I checked out. After noticing that volumes one and three of Apocalypse were sold out, and that two and four were being sold for quite a high price, I was curious as to how rare and limited they were. Thanks,
-Rich

It wasn't you, Harry, who posted them in digital form on Scribd for everyone to read, was it?

No, Nicolino; Scribd was/is a complete rip-off so far as I know.

I solemnly swear I didn't know Scribd was a torrent site! Otherwise wouldn't have posted here...

I'm not referring to any specific content being shared unethically if that's what has happened but in reference to a "Torrent Site", I assume people mean a site that is primarily illegally selling and sharing pirated content?

From what I have seen of Scribd, it appears to have be mainly (and ONLY in the things I have looked for!) legitimate content - publishers (eg Atlantic, FCC HK) releasing and sharing their own IP content. Obviously any site can also be used for nefarious purposes. But is it the primary role of Scribd? Just asking.

It sounds like you haven't looked very hard at Scribd.

Torrents are a form of non-centralized, distributed network download where the pieces of a download come not from a single server, but from many peer clients participating in the network. As with any data transfer protocol, this can be used for legitimate purposes or otherwise.

Transfers via torrent do not have a commerce mechanism built in, so material distributed via torrent sites is generally shared, not sold.

I was pretty surprised your post survived the purge.

Tim, it would be hard to find anything offensive in it frankly. But then again, it's the Café.... so yeah, I see what you mean. Smile
