Topic: Greetings from Deceptions Unlimited
Message: Posted by: Rick Maue (Jan 15, 2002 09:18AM)

My name is Rick Maue. As a new member of this forum, I felt that it was proper to introduce myself.

I (along with my wife) own and operate Deceptions Unlimited, through which we produce books (such as my "Book Of HauntedMagick" from last year, and my soon-to-be-released "Occam's Magic"), videos, and events (such as our upcoming Deception Convention with Jamy Ian Swiss, Todd Robbins, Simon Lovell, Doc Dixon, and more...).

I have been creating/performing magic for over 35 years, starting with close-up (which I still love) and settling in the area of mentalism and haunted magic (or as I like to call it, "bizarre magick lite").

I look forward to exchanging ideas with all of you.

Keep the change,

Hi Rick!

Welcome to, "The Magic Cafe."

What a creative name in, "Deception Convention."

Sounds like a great idea!

Good luck with your convention!

Hi Rick

I've only been here a very short while myself but everyone has been very welcoming here and I really look forward to you sharing your thoughts and ideas with us.

I love your "book of hauntedmagick" and would recommend it strongly to mentalists as well as people interested in bizarre magic(magick?!).

Great to have you here - I know you will contribute so much to the forum.

Rick, have a chair and a char.

Oh no, that's tea, sorry.

I organized a Magic Convention, the first in this State for over 30 years.

That was in 1995 (the year I left my half-life in the Public Service)

I might be just about ready to run my second in another 35 years.

Good Luck :rotf:

So we meet again, young Skywalker! :rotf:

Oops, sorry; wrong script.

Welcome aboard, Rick.

I see you are stretching yourself thin, just like I'm doing! :lol:

Not to worry; you're at one of the best sites, if not THE best site, for magic on the web.
