1. Michael Rubenstein, thanks for your advice and your mention of L'Homme Masque move. Roth uses it in one of his "Made Easy" tricks, v. 1, so that looks like a good move to learn.


2. Ray (or whoever cares to answer): I looked at The Dai Vernon Book of Magic's contents, and it looks great. Definitely in my future. But I've been spending too much on magic lately, so I wonder if the subtleties on the French Drop that Vernon and Ganson discuss are available elsewhere (I'm hoping in a book I already own). Besides Roth, I have Ammar's book -- DVD? -- on coins, Bobo, and a few others that I can't remember at the moment.

P. S. I also have Ouellet's, Close-up Illusions, which has several versions of the FD. I'm beginning to feel like the fox in one of Aesop's fables -- too many choices make for long delays. So I'm going to start with the FD; only question is where to learn it from.

And Chris, I'm glad to have the info that the kindle version isn't authorized. I'm surprised Amazon sells it.
Bob

Amazon does not check copyrights. They sell whatever gets uploaded. Just because something is available on Amazon does not mean it is legit. And this not only applies to Kindle editions but also reprints. With print-on-demand it is very easy and quite cheap for a pirate to reprint any book they like.

Fair enough, Michael! I've got that one. Smile


Chris, I had no idea. That's sobering, especially given that they're driving local bookstores out of business.
