Hello,

I never read any S. Xavier e-book. This one seems to be interesting. Any advice ? The lottery ticket effect (Fortuna) vaguely reminds me something but I'm not sure.

Description here : http://www.lybrary.com/modern-mentalism-notes-p-120355.html

Thanks to those who bought Tryptik, republishing of my e-book, I have some money to spend on Lybrary now to encourage fellow performers.

Is Mr S.X. a so bad guy that nobody dares to admit that he bought some of his e-books ?.. Smile

I vaguely recall that period of time when Mr X was around the Café. His Phoenix Peek was sub par and unperformable by anyone with any dignity. Another manuscript I purchased, I thought, was nowhere ready to be a retail manuscript.

He may well have improved in the time passed. Experience wizens us. Keep us posted, I'd love to know of something of his that is excellent. He always seemed like a nice guy, other than his whatever-action that got him as banned as banned gets.

Tom I'm curious to know why you consider the xavier's peek subpar and unperformable by anyone with any dignity and what is the peek you prefer to do.

I'm curious as to why you're taking your 14 posts to defend Xavier on more than one thread?

Scott Creasy has a nice lottery effect at lybrary Fred. Psi-Lottery. Check it out.

Also his Corporate Mentalist I can't recommend high enough. If you want to spend money these are both good buys.

Well, as I recall, the thing requires you to peek while peeking...that is, you must hold your hands in a horizontal-horizontal prayer position, and at eye level. That means that you must get in that awkward position each time you perform it...fake peeking while you actually are peeking. I thought it just wasn't above the average considering what was out there in 2006...thus sub-par...and definitely more cumbersome than any of the latest progression of peek-tears: Wells' Index Card Tear, Think Pink, R2D2 and T-Rex.

I do recall him being a very active performer (in Chicago, I believe), and experience brings wisdom, so his latest works may well have that wisdom of 7 years' added experience behind them.

To answer the 2nd question, my personal performing conditions and Mitox dictate a peek with 3x5 index cards that can be done slowly, cleanly and in segments, so I use Think Pink and Wells' Index Card Tear. I can certainly use the faster ones, but I am 'comfortable in my skin', so I mainly use these two.

Peeks are like hats. Get one that looks and fits you good, and it's the best one there is.

Anybody else knows Scott Creasy's Psi-Lotto compared to Xavier's Fortuna ?

Scott always seems to come off as a but of a huckster in his writing materials and in his performance. He's good at making things sound better than they are. He seems to be better at the hype than the material. There was some problems with him releasing materials or rehashed material that wasn't his to do so or improperly without permission if I seem to recall. He seemed to get himself a poor reputation here. Not sure if he was banned to just disappeared once his reputation became tarnished. I've seen his performances and was not impressed.

I also see that the original poster above has also been banned from here now.

I'd agree with that assessment.

You'd be referring to Scott X, not Scott C, (in case there's any doubt).

I think Scott Creasey's Q&A is pretty sweet!
