I haven't read any Richard Kaufman yet but I did just order one book. I notice most of his books are the works of other magicians and I'm just curious how that works...
Are these magicians that have reached out to him for help in writing a book? Or does he discover a lot of new magicians or old lost works and decide to make it into a book?
I find it interesting and I'm just curious.

He is an author of books. Some books take him years or even decades to complete. DeLand Mysteries is one of his latest. I am waiting for his next installment of the classic Greater Magic.
But he is much more then an author. He also is an editor and illustrator.
He is also a publisher.
We are very blessed to have him in the magic community.

Many magician authors are here at the Café, so they should answer questions on the process.

Kaufman also does post here on the café. I have found him responsive in emails I have sent him.

This wiki article has a list of his books/contributions.

Which book did you order?

Thanks!
I'm just completely amazed by how many books he's been a part of.

Secrets of So Sato is the first one I ordered.

Richard and I are old friends. The magic world first heard of him when he did the illustrations for my book, AFTERTHOUGHT, published in 1975.

Thanks Harry!
I've been in the layman world up until recently.
I just started Dingle's Deceptions and I'm very much looking forward to reading more of Kaufman and Harry Lorayne.

I perform the magic square, but the method I use is becoming easy to find. I would like an alternate version for those that know the method I am using.

There is a magic square published in Harry’s The Magic Book. Sorry, but I don’t know if it is the same as the one Harry references above from the Tonight Show.
