I have been reading the book for about of week and will post a full review on a separate thread soon. This book is fantastic. I am through about two thirds and this is a book filled with real gems. Several effects with Gilbreath are killers including the first trick in the book. 15 card poker deal seems impossible with the spectator constantly cutting the cards. Pascal Pyramid Prediction is impromptu and done with a shuffled deck. I have already performed that one. The math behind it is well explained. It doesn't matter because all you have to do is add two single digit numbers. The 39th Card effect works every time and you may not understand why but it doesn't matter. Anyway, great material in a gorgeously produced hardcover with sharp and clear photos.

Kingdom of the Red had a larger printing so there are at least 75 copies remaining including 6 leather

Plenty of copies of Counting On Deception remain

I really like Counting On Deception with all those self working mathematical effects. I see you have a new effect for sale on your website called the Rings of Alexandria which appears to also be based on mathematics. Is that going to be in a new book or is it a stand alone effect?

Sorry to be so late in answering.
As you may already know, The Rings of Alexandria is a separate apparatus effect that comes with all props and 10 page color photo manuscript.
The first 25 out of 36 have been sold. I will be making 11 more by April 15. Three of the eleven are already pre-sold. If you want one of the eight remaining, I suggest you preorder it now. I will be shipping these at or before April 15. See details at www.barnowskymagic.com

As some of you know, I recovered all of the magic that I lost in the foreclosure. Ten large boxes.
Cost me $300 shipped from Florida. In one of those boxes were my precious BOOKS!

21st Century Coin Mechanics was in there! I was so happy to see that and the companion CD!
My 4-volume Rice Encyclopedias were in there too. Reading the 21st Century Coin Mechanics book
makes me want the rest of them!

The VALUE of that box of books...staggering! Greater Magic alone would be more than I could afford.
But really, the Rice books and 21st Century Coin Mechanics are my gems!

I agree. 21st Century Coin Mechanics taught me several gorgeous retention vanishes. That alone was worth the price of the book.

I am constantly performing the 15 Card Poker Deal, The 39th card, and Underhanded Deception. Wonderful magic in Counting on Deception.

I hope there is more material to come from the good doctor. Smile

Thanks for those comments guys.

I am about half done with writing my fifth book. No title yet. More unique mathematical effects plus a variety of other magic with cards, coins etc. I may offer it in comb or spiral bound rather than hard cover case bound as in my other books. This way I can sell it at a much lower price.

Larry,

I love that I own all of your books in hard cover. It's the quality of the content that I love the most so I would definitely still put your spiral bound next to the others on my shelf ... but I love those quality hard covers!

I personally love the hard covers but I also think if this is offered in a less expensive format, people will begin to realize what they have been missing with Larry's other books.

Kingdom of the Red and The Book of Destiny flew under my radar for a long time but I became interested and ordered both a few weeks ago. The moment I received these books and opened them I asked myself why I waited so long to buy these! Larry sent these books out right away (I had them in two days) and was a pleasure to work with. I was so impressed that I pm'd this to Larry yesterday...

"Hi, Larry. I received Kingdom of the Red and The Book of Destiny last week and I just wanted to let you know these are among the most treasured books in my collection! They are beautifully produced. The quality of the books and the magic contained therein is second to none. I am working through Kingdom of the Red right now. I haven't had time to get into The Book of Destiny yet other than to peruse the contents and some clips from the dvd, briefly. What great work. I think your books are the best kept secret in magic. Thanks again for great service and the fantastic books. I will probably be ordering Counting on Deception at some point in the future. Not sure about 21st Century Coin Mechanics yet because I'm not much of a coin magician and tend to just use the basics... classic palm, finger palm, basic vanishes, click pass, etc. Then again, the other books flew under my radar for a long time so maybe that one is too, right now. Thanks again, Larry."


For anyone who is even remotely interested in ordering these books from Larry, let me tell you that these books really are among some of my favorites and it is such a pleasure working through them. I have sold many of my books here on the Café because I just don't, or won't, read or use anything in them, but these books by Mr. Barnowsky aren't going anywhere. They are right there alongside my copies of Salon de Magie, Greater Magic, Modern Magic, The Magic Book, Scarne on Card Tricks, Apocalypse, Hugard's Magic Monthly, The Amateur Magician's Handbook, and the third edition of Expert Card Technique, among others.

Thanks so much for all those comments about my books.

My fifth book will be entitled Magica Analytica. Much of the magic will be self-working using some mathematical principles never used before in magic. I have drawn from the fields of topology, number theory, group theory, and algebra. Most of the effects can be done with an ordinary deck of cards. For variety, I've included a few non-math effects including a new favorite coin routine.

This will be a smaller book than my prior four with a little over 100 pages. The book will be illustrated with color photographs and diagrams. I plan on having it comb or spiral bound. Price should be under $30.

At this point, all writing is done and all photos have been taken and inserted into the manuscript. I am proof reading the manuscript right now. I expect the book to be available to ship by early Fall or possibly sooner.

All four of my other books are still in stock.

I placed my order for "The Book of Destiny". I was surprised when I checked my books that I didn't have this. Thankfully I've corrected my error.

I ordered Magica Analytica last week. I got an email that it was shipped today. Thanks for running ahead of schedule. Will post a review once I've gotten a chance to read it cover to cover.

Looking forward to your review BJ.
