Hello all,

I should have done this some time ago...

My name is Steven Zaretsky, I live in Central Florida (east of St. Cloud) and have been here for a couple of years. Philly and Southwestern Connecticut before that. I'm just getting back into magic after a number of years exploring other hobbies (mostly bass guitar). I do have another purpose for being interested in magic and this site: I'm doing research on a semi-famous magician to whom I'm related by marriage. His name was Al (Alwyn) Stevenson and he was responsible for books on the Svengali and Wizard decks (he renamed the stripper deck to the Wizard deck) as well as the process that Goshman uses for creating sponge balls. He owned the store 'The Wizard Shop' located in the Times Square subway entrance. He also helped to edit Hugard's Magic Monthly after Hugard passed on. I'm looking for anyone with stories, memorabilia (he marketed many effects under the name 'The Wizard Works') to post on the site I've created for him -

Looking forward to any help I can get. Regards to all!
