Eric Mead's book from Hermetic Press should be good...

The new Kaps book. Also the remaining 2 Christian Fechtner Robert-Houdin translated books from Mike Caveney.

In addition to the Kaps book I'm greatly looking forward to the Vernon Touch, and also to volume one of the english translation of Magic Christian's Hofzinser trilogy.

Hey Peo,
Congrats on the milestone!

Thanks a bunch, and yes Im looking forward for The Hofzinser triology as well.
And also lets not forget the two next books in the Ascanio triology.

I'm eagerly awaiting "The Conjuring Anthology" by Jim Steinmeyer, which I recently ordered here... http://www.jimsteinmeyer.com/catalog/books/

Should be fantastic!

I'd love to do buy the Vernon book. In fact, I went to the Genii site to do just that. However, when I go to the Kaufman site, in order to order the book, you must first enter your personal info (including credit card info) on a "non-https" site. You then supposedly immediately get transferred onto an https site but I'm afraid to have my credit card info floating around out there even for an instant on a "non-https" site. Oh well.

How about the new Ted Karmilovich book? That should be here soon...

Hey -- stop laughing! Seriously, it might be...

Richard Kaufman's long awaited sequal "Mr. Jenning Takes It Easy".
The second book in the Larry Jennings triology.
The first book was "Jennings '67", written in 1997.
According to Richard in his colume in the April issue of Genii the book will be "...between 300 and 400 pages, and it will revolutionize the basic way in which many magicians handle the deck of cards."

I'm still waiting for Darwin Ortiz's CardShark and the illusive Magic of Fred Robinson book.

There isn't a big, anticipated book that is coming up is it??

2 years ago, Tamariz's Mnemonica was hugely anticipated....
last year, arguably reprints of Strong Magic, and also Dear Mr Fantasy
Message: Posted by: Magiguy (Apr 16, 2006 10:44AM)
Speaking of Tamariz, there's been a lot of talk about the upcoming reprints of The Magic Way and The Five Points In Magic. It would be nice to see these sometime this year (especially The Magic Way... the one I don't already have :)).

and...Harry Lorayne is working on Best of Friends III (but I haven't heard about the expected release date).

Mike (Turk),
If you're concerned about the on-line security protocol when ordering the Vernon book you can also order by phone.

Regarding ordering The Vernon Touch via the Genii/Kaufman website. I spoke with Richard who asked me to tell you that the entire process is, in fact, secure. However, if you're worried, you can always call or fax the Genii office. Thanks.

I saw a copy of Roy Benson by Starlight--absolutely beautiful. Eight hundred pages and literally thousands of photos. This is what I would save up my money for.

That is what I did, I called the Genii office and pre-ordered my copy (it's due may the 15th).

What make you think that, your ESP abillity, or your 6th sense? :P

What about the new Doug Edwards book?
I heard it would be out in early 2006. His card material is top rate and practical to perform. I loved "Packs A Wallop" and many of the effects he had published in the Apocalypse magazine.

Brass Knuckles by Doug Edwards is finally out, and is expected to his dealers next week.

The reprintings of the 3 old Tamariz books are said to be reprinting in the next year and a half.

I'm looking forward to reading Darwin Ortiz's new book. (Or at least seeing it in hard copy, since I was lucky enough to read it in draft).

Hi Andrew
Can you tell us something about its release date?
Message: Posted by: ASW (Sep 1, 2006 06:46AM)
I have no idea. It only just now was sent to the layout people. I can't say anything about it, except that it's terrific, LOL. (Sorry for being mysterious - not my place to discuss details).
