Hi all,

To clarify matters: "Resigned to Miracles introduces a method for secretly obtaining genuine signatures from one or two spectators on the backs of playing cards.".
This is to say that the secretly obtained signatures are on the backs of playing cards - NOT ON THE FACES.

As I state in the book, and as Madison has written in his comprehensive review, this is not really an issue. But I do want it to be quite clear, as I don't want to appear as misleading.

My best wishes,
Peter

Just as an update: I will DEFINITELY be trying this in the real world. (I’m just waiting on the supplies to arrive.)

I will report back with the success of the routine on laymen. I’ll let you know exactly how they react.

While Fade In will get a lot of attention (as it should), Bizarre Assignment might be the best item in the book. You can read a description in Madison’s spot-on review. I never really liked Bizarre Vanish or Bizarre Twist but Peter’s version takes these plots into the stratosphere. I really wish I could have seen Bizarre Assignment performed live before I read this book because I’m pretty sure my head would have exploded. I will definitely be using it. I really think this will legitimately destroy spectators.

@Madison:
I look forward to hearing how it turns out.

@emyers99:
I'm glad you took a liking to Bizarre Assignment. Paul Harris is, in my opinion, simply the best.
The sequence on the Bizarre-theme can be performed without utilizing the concept, but having the selections signed does enhance the impact.

My best wishes,
Peter

This is an amazing idea and a wonderful, easy to read book.

I wasn't sure what to expect but disappointed was high up the list. In fact the book contains a brilliant trick which could easily be sold as a stand alone effect for Ł30, the rest and the use of Peter's concept is like very thick icing on the cake.

It's available in the U.K too, which is great because I'm not a Swede (though I know one or two).

Harry Patter,

Thank you for your kind words, I really appreciate it.
I'm glad you like the concept and I hope you'll find use for it.

Actually, my initial thought was to publish this as a stand alone item, but I decided not to. The main reason was I wanted to convey my thoughts on applications, which can be so much more than just the obvious "card to impossible location". Though there's nothing wrong with that, there's so much more to discover.

If you have any questions on this, send me a pm or post it here, and I'll do my best to answer

My best wishes,
Peter

I’m halfway through this book. ***, it’s very good. I suspected what materials I would likely need and I was bang on thus glad that I don’t need to order or make anything else to do the material in the book. I think virtually anybody that picks up this book is going to be absolutely delighted by it. Excellent work.

Hi Jamie,

I don’t know if you recall, but I used to ”hang out” at TSD back in the days. Nice to ”see you” again, and thanks for showing interest in my book.

I know some dealers in Europe will carry this, but I don’t know when. I can find out and get back to you, if you’d like?

My best wishes,
Peter

Already have many ideas for this. I also perform something that uses the core concept here but your addition and ideas with the signatures makes the thing I already perform regularly a whole lot more powerful now. The resulting secrete signature(s) really allows one to have a virtually infinite number of possibilities in terms of what they can do with a signed card.

Hi Peter - of course I remember! Partly why I know this book will be a gem!

Miss TSD... especially the conventions!

Don’t worry about finding somewhere... I’ll get from Penguin!

Cheers

Hi kissdadookie,

I'm glad you can use this on something you already perform, and I have an inkling of what it is. Smile

Hi Jamie,

I miss TSD too. Unfortunately I never was able to attend a convention. I hope we'll meet somewhere else some day. Smile

Thanks for having faith in me and my material. I think you are going to like it.

Take care,
Peter
