Hi Jeff
Thanks for being here with us this week,I hope you're enjoying your time here at the Café!

I was wondering if you've ever considered writing a book on your magic? Either essays or routines? I have(as have so many others) enjoyed your lectures, and DVD's, as well as the wonderful Mystery School Book. But I wondered if you ever had any plans to write your own "This is my Life in Magic"?

Again, thanks for being here this week!

Greetings All,

I have ben reflecting the last few days on this question....I really think that I could just take the posts from this weeks posts and write a book!

I know that I have a book hidden in here! It will take a very patient magi a serious amount of time to put all the pieces together, but I am sure that I have written a full book right here on the Magic Café.

Thank you all, for adding to this experience of creativity ,with your thoughtful questions.

Your friend in the mysterious expressions of our art,

JEff

Jeff,

I have to agree with you. I have just read the history of the mask act - this is perfect material for a book as it stands.

Not only a magical artist, but an artist of words too.
Yours Magically,
Lee Alex

I think that's wonderful. It has been such an inspiring week here at the Café, and I for one feel these posts deserve a more permanent home,something tangible to be read years from now, to curl up with late at night. Besides, as Mark Twain said,"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend...." Smile

In the meantime while you're waiting for THE book to come out you can get an inside look at some of the more progressive media magic we have been crafting here at the Magic school.

Following is a mini documentary of our recent tour of China filmed and
edited by magical filmmaker Jordan Wright.

Jordan is our media expert here at the Magic and Mystery School and I hope you enjoy his work.

Yours in creating better magic media,

A quick question: what all does the Mystery School book have in it?

For me this book was an adventure Into the Deeper Meaning of Magic

First held in 1992, Eugene Burger and Jeff McBride's Mystery School promised to be a magic conference unlike any other: a group of magicians dedicated to seriously exploring the deeper sides of the art of magic. This event would not be held in a hotel or restaurant, but at a beautiful retreat center in nature where creativity and fellowship across differences could be inspired. Nine years later, after eleven incredibly successful sessions, Jeff and Eugene ended Mystery School at its peak.

Now, in Eugene Burger and Jeff McBride’s first-ever collaborative work, the rest of us may at last peer into the shadowy conclave known as Mystery School. In this most unusual collection of essays, magic, ideas, and artwork the spirit of a very unique group of artists has been preserved, while still guarding the secrecy in which they met.

Featuring Jeff McBride stage masterpieces revealed for the first time, new pieces by Burger, and essays by Mystery School faculty member Robert Neale, plus magic and writings by some of the world’s most magical thinkers, including: Bob Fitch, Dan Harlan, Paul Harris, Kevin James, Vito Lupo, Patrick Martin, Max Maven, Stephen Minch, Alain Nu and Peter Samelson.

Over 450 large-format pages printed on acid-free satin-finish paper, hardbound with 16 full-color pages showcasing the exotic art of Katlyn Breene and beautiful full-color dustjacket.


Essays, Effects, Interviews,Philosophy and History.

It took 10 years to compile!

I am sure you will enjoy it,
