Ummmm....any word on these people?:
http://www.madaboutmagic.com

They are selling my eBook "The Safwan Papers" (I have no arrangement with them) AND they are charging more than my $30 retail price:

I am glad, though, that they offer a "FILE SHARING TRACKING/PROTECTION: Embedded Customer ID Number." for your protection, of course!


hmmmm.....

Drop dominic a line from magicshop.co.uk, cos when you view the source code of that mad about site, it lists sales@magicshop.co.uk as its contact email - whereas magicshop.co.uk's site lists support@magicshop.co.uk as their contact email...

Ripping off the guy with a military and law enforcement background definitely puts the 'mad' in madaboutmagic.

Hope this gets resolved ASAP Bryn.

What might have happened is that converting from uk money to dollars will do funny things...

bob cassidy's new book is around £44.99 in some shops, which works out at just under $75 at the moment...

Looks like they have most of Dr. Bill Cushman's material too. And a few by other Café denizens like J. Prager and Don Theo.

Thanks, Blackwood. They have half of my ebooks. At one point, MagicShopUK had my permission but I know nothing of this site nor have I ever seen a commision. Interestingly, it gives an address in Miami, not too far from where I live. What's next, storming the gates?

I believe Dominic Reyes is the owner and is a very reputable dealer. I am sure he will put this right as soon as he is made aware of the issue. He has staff that sometimes makes mistakes so let's see.

I just dug up my original contract with MagicshipUK and it states:

"The Author grants Merchant of Magic Ltd the right to place said Work in any bookstores, both offline and on, that Merchant of Magic Ltd owns with the express purpose to sell said Work to the public."

So, in all fairness, this seems legit. I've always had good dealings with Dominic, just surprised I wasn't informed and that I haven't seen a commision from any sale with MoM since April of 2013. Also, only 4 of my ebooks are available at MoM, lol.

I didn't mean to post that, as I thought deleting it would suffice.

I did as well, Bill..... They are affiliated with Dominic, who has always been great to deal with. My bad for jumping the gun;it is just I had never heard of them.

Jeff: HaHa...but it did, thanks! I was in the same situation as Dr. Bill, upon further review. Dom emailed me right back, and he has always been great to work with.

ANYWAY...I'm glad to make this announcement regarding The Safwan Papers: Richard Osterlind included his version of my routine "Your Lucky NITE!" from Safwan in his great new DVDs "The Sapphire Collection." This is SUCH a huge honor and thrill for me!!!!

Bryn,

You know how I feel about you as a person. That goes without saying.

But, even without your background, as a creator you are someone very special. It is MY honor that you allowed me to use a variation of your effect on Sapphire. I sincerely thank you for that.

Bryn-

I think Richard would agree with me that, if you go to MINDvention this year, we'd both be honored to have you sing with us. Smile

I got the Safwan Papers yesterday and I am already impressed - yet only have read a bit. I will come back and review this once I've studied the routines.

Thank you Bryn!

All the best,

John.

Richard: speechless. And you KNOW that's not like me!!

Bob: I would love to make it sometime..Could you imagine: the three of us walking on stage, the crowd expecting some mindreading, we bust in a version of Sinatra's "Luck Be A Lady"....and then just walking off.....priceless

I KNOW, Richard!

I'll have everyone know that Richard, Bob Cassidy, and myself were asked in a letter from the Met Opera House to be the understudys for The Three Tenors. I have the letter right here, and it reads:

"Dear Richard, Bob & Bryn: Please don't ever try that stuff you call 'singing' here ever again. Thanks, The Met."

OPPS, I guess I read it wrong!

Oh well, back to the mentalism!

Been obsessed with psi forces lately, and while I couldn't sell SEVEN on it's own to my liking (for whatever reason people catch me doing direct things seem to work for everyone else!!), what I've happily come back to is the verbal chicanery for narrowing down final suit, as well as understanding the value portion can be used to f*rce a much wider range of values given Bryn's flexible methodology.

Heck, if your happy with a near hit, you could probably use the final step get to half the cards in the deck.

So yeah, with a little practice and willingness to think on your feet, SEVEN is a FRAMEWORK for psi f*rcing hits or near hits of half the cards in the deck. Nice.

If everyone noticed this before I did, chalk it up to me being slow. =)

I just want to say I love the idea behind Seven. I have used it as an opener. I have a working on it, and I hope you guys understand what I mean without me exposing the method.

My idea is to reverse the prediction inside a deck of cards, then go into the routine and end by showing the deck and that one card is turned the other way. This in itself is not that amazing (at least for magicians), but the thing I like is the addition I figured out just "by accident".

My problem was the rare occasion when the original handling missed, and the spectator didn't end on the right card but one off. I first tried to get some kind of Kolossal Killer ending, but then out of pure luck, when I spread the cards one day the prediction card was next to the alternative "end card".

So, if all goes well, I spread the deck face up and show and then turn over the prediction, revealing the card to be the one the spectator thought of.

If it goes wrong, and the spectator doesn´t end on the card I predict, I just spread the cards and tell the spectator to look for something unusual. When I reach the card that is turned over, I point to the fact that it is a marking, and that next to that card is the card that the spectator thought of.
