Hi guys,

I used to work for Viking/Collectors Workshop, and today I went in to visit George Robinson, and he told me about a book he just got in today.

It's called

Best of the Worlds

Paul Curry's classic Out of this World handlings by some of the best in the business, people like:

Gregory Wilson
Juan Tamariz
Even Luke Jermay
plus so many others

There are over 20 versions of Out of this World.

If you are a fan of Out Of This World, I suggest you pick it up available at Viking Magic.

I think it runs around $55.

This looks really great (so is Out Of This World and Beyond; a "classic" really) but I don't see a single name associated with editing or compiling the contributions in this or the main ad on its own site. Does anyone know who to credit for putting this book together?

Hi, Alex.

Thanks for the info. This book look very interesting. I went to the Viking site and read the ad blurb but I saw no listing of Harry Lorayne's name as a contributor to this book. Do yo know if Harry's "Out of this Universe" (or any othre OOTW contribution he might have contributed to the genre) is in the Viking book?

Also, howabout Paul Harris'(?) "Galaxy". Is "Galaxy" in the compilation?

Thanks for any info in these regards.

Bill, I would try contacting the Magic Apple, I think they were involved in publishing the book.

Hardcover with dust jacket, 377 pages, 77 clear illustrations which are reminiscent of Joseph K. Schmidt’s style, over 50 routines, 22 interviews with some of the contributors, 11 essays and three sections on the odds/statistics in separating the colours. Most of the routines have appeared elsewhere. Nine contributions are new.

If you possess a reasonable library of card magic, then you probably possess most of this book’s contents. Having all these together between the one set of covers is more convenient for research and comparing routines.

The table of contents is arranged in alphabetical order of contributor and indicates the previously unreleased items. An Index of routines lists the effects under the categories Using a Full Deck, With A Partial Deck of Cards, And With Gaffed or Marked Cards. A partial reference list for the routines is included.

My favourites? Well, of course Harry Lorayne's Out Of This Universe and Impromptu OOTW. Add Jon Armstrong’s Out of This Blah, Blah, Blah.

R. Paul Wilson’s OUT OF THIS WILSON is being added to my repertoire. First published in this compilation, it’s easy, clear to follow and devoid of sleights.

If you are a fan of OOTW then this book is required.

I was fearing this question.
For as good as the book may be it fundamentally is of use to magicians who want to design their own personal routine. What good would a ranking of performers offer? There are no fillers there and Best Of All Worlds offers an opportunity to the ones of us who want to get further.
Magic is the art of proving impossible things in parallel dimensions that can't be reached
