Does anyone have contact information for John Williams from Tasmania?

I'd let to get a copy of the Card Mondor book, and I think he published it, but I can't find any contact information on him.

The "book" was published in CD format. "Dreams, Schemes, Nightmares and Illusions".
Card was a great guy with a fascinating career.

Not sure if it's still available.

Thanks, Bill.

I've been chasing down those same leads with nothing to show for it yet. A couple guys from Australia mentioned so far they are not even sure if he is alive - just kind of fell of the map. Hope I can chase down a copy.

If anyone actually purchased a copy I'd love to speak with you.

Alan Watson will be your best connection. He is actually in New Zealand, which is not all that close to Australia, but he keeps in touch with the Australians. There is a link to some of his work there. He has a weekly e-mail about magic.

I am also chasing a copy of Card's autobiography.
I knew him in Melbourne in the 1970s, when I was a child.
He was running the shop and also appeared as the ringmaster on a children's television program, Bozo the Clown. I think he may have stepped into the clown shoes a bit later.
If I have any luck, I will put the details on this page.
I hope anyone else who knows how to find a copy will do the same.
All the best to all

Card sent me a copy before he died. Great read. He also sent me notes on things he had to leave out of the book for various reasons. If you can find a copy, get it.

I have, with a lot of help, tracked down John Williams, the publisher of Card Mondor's autobiography, at john@ezy-internet.com

Missbabs -

I have also had that same email address and have tried to contact him for several years now on multiple occasions. The magic boys in NZ I have spoken with haven't heard from him in years either...

Did you actually speak with him?
