Hi guys.

I said that I would post when my book/ebook was released, and as of now, it is.

I am going to be offering it as both a printed version (50 8.5"x11" pages, comb-bound with protective plastic covers,) and in PDF eBook format, as well. I am currently in contact with Steve to get a banner ad placed here, and have also upstated my site a little. More information on the book can be found in the ad copy, below:

THE SAFWAN PAPERS by Bryn Reynolds

This eBook has finally been released & contains several of Bryn’s latest mentalism routines and utilities. Perhaps you know Bryn from his some of his other separately released effects such as The BusinessCOIN Prediction, $: THE Serial Number Divination, ESPnvelope, or his DOUBLE-DOWN casino cards effect, which was recently featured on Richard Osterlind’s DVDs, by the way.

Here is what others are saying about THE SAFWAN PAPERS:

RICHARD OSTERLIND:
“Bryn Reynolds is one of the most exciting creators I have come across in many years. Whenever he sends me something it is top notch and is usually an item I add to my repertoire. THE SAFWAN PAPERS is the latest batch of material to peak my interests. Developed in Iraq, for his fellow soldiers, the material is dynamite! (Or C-4 given the situation!) There are great routines, gadgets and gimmicks that will become standard items in your act and just plain, good ole straight-thinking behind powerful effects! One is already slated for my next set of DVD’s. I highly - very highly - recommend this book!”

BANACHEK:
“You know how to take an idea or effect, make it your
own and add a wonderful twist to them. Wonderful thinking and inspirational. Keep
up the great work; we need more original thinkers like you in our ranks. Well done.”

MOSHE BOTWINICK:
“As in much of Bryn's work, these ideas, ploys, and psychological refinements should be kept a military secret. Reclassify these papers as Top Secret.”

CHUCK HICKOK:
"The Safwan Papers has several very clever ideas for the serious mentalist. The emphasis is on language ... not props. Your Lucky Nite could be sold as a separate routine."

These effects rely on psychological and verbal manipulation, as opposed to focusing on props or gimmicks. They are designed to be performed almost anywhere, at anytime, with either none, or very little, preparation.

While the routine names may have been altered to so as not to tip any of the methodologies utilized, here is a brief description of each of the items:

SEVEN – A one-card variant of the Kilossal Killer genre of effect…with one big difference: there are NO outs. NONE. The one-and-only prediction you place on the table before the routine begins will match the card the spectator envisions. Bold, raw, and almost always works. And in the rare occasions it doesn’t, you still get credit!
Gabe Ableson: “Just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed SEVEN. As I've come to expect from you, it's brilliant.”

BCK - By using real psychometry (and a clever subtlety) you, and perhaps a participant, will be able to determine the outcome of an experiment of several runs of “object placed under one of several items.” And if you want, you may show you predicted in writing the exact results. NO gimmicks at all’ and everything is borrowed.

YOUR LUCKY NITE – Hopefully, all are worth more than the price of admission, but this one seems to shine with a little more luster: an anytime-anyplace routine with a Bank Night flavor. Those whom I highly respect have said the following about this effect:
Gabe Ableson: “MAN that was good stuff, Bryn! I can't get over "YOUR LUCKY NITE.” Best version of Bank Night since the trick was invented. Wow.
Chuck Hickock: “Your Lucky Nite could be sold as a separate routine."
Mike Sturgeon: “I am still sitting here grinning from ear to ear as I contemplate the sheer entertainment value and the utter simplicity of the *** thing (I think I'm in love.)
Richard Osterlind: “We are planning to shoot the new set of videos some time ***********. With your permission I plan to use "Your Lucky Nite". (Per Bryn: Permission GRANTED…and thank you!)

Impossible to backtrack, no sucker ending, and participant shines as the star….and easy to prepare!

BOHT: My pet. Please read my story why in the book. A subtle cultural difference has been refined & exploited to make the “Which Hand” type of effect a perfect success…but only once per performance…..THE perfect out for when mechanical, physical, or psychological outs and tells may fail….and it stands as a methodology all on its own!

******STRING: Figure out the “asterisks,” if you will, but you will still enjoy the storyline and thinking behind it: A participant is brought back in time to an ancient carnival scam in which an entertaining story is told. By eliminating 4 out of 5 colored strings, she wins a very nice prize for the performer through her own FREE choices. No Equivique at all. NONE. In the interest of full-disclosure, SOME of you may have to buy a $20 prop, but most already have it. It is perfect.

$4 Billet Index – It is what it is…The least you will ever spend on an 8/16 billet index that renders all specialty Predator-type wallets obsolete. Complete with photos on how to build one!

Thanks,
Bryn

Thanks, guys.

Well, hey, J ack...Jack..that is just great! I will certainly be looking forward to your order, and hopefully very soon! Unfortunately I cannot just post one on my own, and actually have to wait for Steve and the mods to take my PayPal payment, and then be able to fit it into the ad rotation! Despite my previous random PayPal donations over the years, that is how it works! But I am glad you chimed in, and when Steve posts the banner I'll have at least one more order I can count on!

Thanks again!
Bryn

Cool...thanks, Jim...

(Sarcasm aside, what Steve charges for an ad is TOO good of a bargan, and that is why it takes a while to get them in. More of those that are selling than space is available...)

I honestly hope you feel the same about the effects as the others that have reviewed them...they work for ME, but is a great thrill to hear that others that I highly respect can incorporate them as well!

Thanks,
Bryn

I read over seven and bottle cap,both are worth the price of the ebook alone..I just quicky read over the rest and man let me tell ya..Bryn has some wicked thoughts in his head..he leaves no stone un-turned explaining in detail the wording for his effects...this is for any mentalist that wants to carry min props..most is up there in your head..that is the direction Im looking to take a lot of my effects..Bryn's material sure meets these requirements..do yourself a favor and get this ebook!!Highly recommended.. Thankyou Bryn!

Bryn,

You can be really proud of this. Agree fully with all the
others who already have given it their superlatives!

Also this have one of the most honest presenation/intro
I've ever seen in a work like this...can't hardly wait for
part two to be ready...and in the mean time I know we are
many who will have fun performing both the routines in the
book as well as all the other nice effects from you!

Also it was nice to see a little larger photo of you than
the small avatar here...Smile

Keep up the good work in all fields!

All the Best

Got it. Some nice thinking. I especially liked his impromptu index idea.

Just wanted to mention that I have read this already and I very much enjoyed it. Very good thinking and some nice additions to classic things that one might not link to mentalism. Very inspiring stuff.
