Of course you can pre-order. In fact I am handling all the pre-orders.

To be assured of getting a copy, fresh off the presses before the ink even dries, just send Cagliostro a money order for $1,495 and your order will be handled first. You will go to the head of the line and it should be a very long line.

For the real enthusiast, add another $500.00 to your order and we will include an autographed photo of Steve Forte holding a pair of dice in one hand and a deck of cards in the other.

Oh, just joking guys.

For those wanting an update:

The book is essentially done, barring a few last-minute edits. I'd say it's 99% laid out, the cover is done, and there are only 2 chapters left to finish copy-editing. All of the full-size, high-resolution photos are in place. To be honest, Steve is mostly waiting on me to finish looking over the last 2 chapters. But...since I'm working through everything with cards in hand, it takes time. Still, it has to be done this way as I occasionally find small things that need to be corrected.

A website has been created but has not got live yet. Not sure if we'll do pre-orders or not, but you're looking at a roughly $300 - 350 price point, depending on where you live.

I can tell you this: I've spent the last 13 years practically living next door to Steve and have shuffled cards with him probably 200 times in that period. There's stuff in this book I've never seen before.

About every 50 pages or so I see something that makes me thing, "Well. I've been doing that wrong for 30 years."

It's pretty amazing to say the least.

I wish Rod, Johnny, and Ricky had lived to see it.

Thanks for such good report Jason. What a work of art and dedication this must be. What a friend Steve must be. To rub shoulder's with a legend and be a part of such a project is awesome. Thanks for the update and your friendship.

Best

Jason, just a suggestion. Is it possible to film the performances of the moves in the book? It may be easier to follow if there is are performances for the moves taught.

Really looking forward to buying a copy or two Jason. I for one really appreciate the updates. It seems like a pre-2020 release is more than likely. I will keep coming back sporadically for any updates.

I have to chuckle at some go the comments in reaction to this new book coming out. I know we can't expect everyone in our "fraternity" to realize or understand how lucky we are to even have the possibility of Steve sharing his knowledge with us in book form.
There is NO ONE producing ANYTHING (whether it be books or video) right now that even comes close to what he can offer us.
It's natural to ask about things before making a hefty purchase or to suggest things like splitting it up into smaller volumes etc. (I guess)... but I just can't help but think that if you need to ask about the table of contents, or ask for supporting videos, than this book may not be for you (as elitist as that may sound... it's really true). The mere existence of this book will affect our little fraternity of sleight of hand enthusiasts the same way a visit from an advanced alien civilization that offered to share their technology would affect the earth. I for one will not be looking this gift horse in the mouth.

THe table of contents was only meant to review and look forward to . The purchase of the set of books is a given regardless . It is true, it is Steve Forte .

It’s probably par for the course to see this kind of giddy anticipation ... although I could definitely do without the “giddy” posts ... there’s little doubt that the book will bring out all kinds of buyers - from kids suggesting SF record every move on video so they can “understand it better”, to long time members of this forum who will recognize the importance of his choosing to publish some of his closely held work from outside of game protection.

Probably his swan song, it’s a good thing that his work will cement SF’s importance to the broader world of card work beyond game protection ... he certainly deserves to sell as many copies as he can possibly print.

Typo correction...
could some one with the ability to edit be having a "go" at me?
