Darwin's new cardbook is called "Scams and Fantasies with Cards" and it should be released sometime around June (I believe). The book contains 30 effects including gambling routines, card magic and a thought provoking essay. Anyway, the following message is from Darwin Ortiz:

I'm now accepting advance orders for the book at a discounted price. The
publication price will be $45.00. However, until April 15th I'm accepting
orders at the discounted rate of only $35.00 and I'll cover the postage. (The
order must reach me by April 15th.)

Feel free to mention this to anyone you think may be interested.

Orders should be sent to:
Darwin Ortiz
1234 Eton Court, NW
Washington, DC 20007


This will be one of the best card books you will buy. For those of you who are fans of Darwin's material, this is top notch.

(PS - If this post is inappropriate, let me know and please accept my apology).

Not heard of the book until now but if Darwin is doing a special it makes sense people that want it should get their fingers out and take advantage of the saving from him now.

Savngs like this are not passed on to dealers.

Paul is absolutely correct. This is a one time special deal that is only good for the next 2 weeks or so. Of course the book will be available everywhere, but at the published price. Plus, Darwin would probably be willing to autograph it if you asked (good for all collectors of signed first edition magic books too !!)

Knowing the material that is in this book, it is the one book I have been looking forward to for over a year now.
