Just want to give a shout-out and welcome to the new columnists now being featured in MUM. These columns offer insight and assistance toward being a better conjurer and all are worth the time to read and digest them. I am particularly intrigued with The Dotted Line column by Don Theo. The effect he teaches is fantastic and is a great application of Paul Curry's 'swindle deal'.

The cover article about Hofzinser features material from the two Non Ultra Plus volumes just released. Hofzinser was a practical man, yet far ahead of his time.

This magazine just keeps getting better and better.

I suggest to Don Theo (but did not include in his column) that his effect/procedure could done using a Mad-Libs script. I have not pursued this further, but I think it could produce a pretty funny (and amazing since the shuffled up cards somehow manage to "work" with the Mad-Lib script) routine.

I, too, am very pleased with the talent that has agreed to write for M-U-M. My thanks to them all for their contributions.

I liked Charlie Siebert's article on the paranormal. Always good to see what is happening in that world. Hope Charlie will continue to post monthly and also apprise us on the Yahoo OIC link.
