Topic: More Gh*st
Message: Posted by: horus1 (Oct 15, 2015 10:12PM)
At only 100 copies available I'm not sure if it's helpful or cruel to start this thread. ;-)

I think Professor BC's latest endeavor More Gh*st is quite possibly the most anticipated book release since the original Dopps.
As a stand alone, accompaniment to the original Gh*st and bridge piece between Gh*st and Dopps, this book sounds simply fantastic. (and hopefully someone will post some of those details here!)

I for one am very much looking forward to the Halloween release date.
I'll also add - if you don't already own Gh*st I'd try to pick up a spare M.R J@mes ambrotype from Lebanon circle. The ambrotype was a wonderful prop that aided in the spirit communication with the original.
No doubt you would be able to achieve the same effect with More Gh*st.
I can't verify if they're still there as the site is down for now, but to my recollection they've continued to be available since the original release.

Happy Halloween!

Can't wait to have more G's aside my 1st G & next to my Dopps set !! :-)
Amazing work that Prof BC goes thru to recreate & code these, seems like he keeps pushing the envelope to top the last book !

& then the next book Dec / Jan release planned !?! Woof !

I'd heard that More GH*STS was tentatively scheduled for a Halloween release, is this still the schedule?
Message: Posted by: Merlinsmagic (Oct 16, 2015 09:05AM)
Yes More G is a Halloween scheduled release, I was referring to another book Prof is also working on for Dec release.
There are massively exciting things happening with More G's & the Dopps series system ! :-)
Message: Posted by: Perkins (Oct 16, 2015 03:48PM)
My enthusiasm for this book outweighs a nagging caution to keep it on the down low until I have a copy in hand. It’s teeming with promise.

MORE GH*ST is a Doppelgänger as well as a stand-alone effect. It will work in tandem with GH*ST, for a complete Evening’s Entertainment, AND it’s been coded to support a new artifact project, and “museum-quality prop” coming soon from BC called TRIPTYCH!

Considering the Prof’s black-belt bibliophile status and devotion to the author, I think Spooky is in for a legacy offering.
Message: Posted by: horus1 (Oct 16, 2015 10:16PM)
Having missed out on Aes Goetia I am particularly excited about Triptych and how it might work with More Gh@st.
And yes, Perkins! - I'm sure it's fine to forgo that caution on COA numbers / stock and simply celebrate this milestone.
Probably poor form to open the thread with gallows humor - but that's my style. ;-)

So... cheers to Prof BC. We're very fortunate to share in your brilliance.
Please keep us posted on what we can expect with More Gh@st and Triptych. I know Triptych isn't due till the end of the year. Will there be any pre-release package where we might buy the two together?
It's my understanding you can't use Triptych without More Gh@st.

MORE GH*ST is well on track for a Hallowe'en release.

Triptych will be a stand-alone, multiple-effect prop (5 different effects in one prop) that can be augmented in performance with MORE GH*ST, but the book is not required to perform any one (or all) of the effects that will be available with Triptych.

Many thanks for the kind words, all.

Happy news!

MORE GH*ST has arrived a day ahead of schedule (the bat has landed*).

Found one box (of four) awaiting my return home, and they came out very well indeed. Quite pleased with them.

Now hoping the other three boxes arrive (on the original schedule) tomorrow.

Let the ageing begin.

*funny thing, although the cover of J@mes's famous book famously features a terrific bat, none of the stories has anything whatsoever to do with a bat. Go figure. B

No price has been stated as of yet but if it's like some of the good Prof's other offerings I suspect close to $300, but what do I know I could be way off. I've only got about 1/2 that built up in the old PayPal account.

Also wondering if this is going to be a LebCirc item and only to be shipped from the UK by Dan B, or will there be a shipping point from the USA? And is about $250 US the "ballpark" price before shipping (just trying to squeeze the budget)?

Yep I believe they will be offering for a short time the Dopp's number matching which I think is awesome of Prof & Dan which I'm sure is extra work for them. A big Thanks to them both doing this for us :-)
Message: Posted by: PROF BC (Oct 23, 2015 08:18AM)
Extra work, indeed, but happy to do it (sincerely). I will match the Dopps numbers first (from the initial orders--please be certain to state your number request so I can match it against my files) and then I will fulfill the non-Dopps-owner orders with unclaimed numbers immediately afterwards.

In essence this will (by necessity) be a modified 'first come, first served' offering--modified by my trying to match up as many number requests as I might until that practice becomes impossible.

The price will be the same as Ph.o.t.O., 185 GBP.

The books will ship from the US (no sense in shipping a batch to the UK for Dan to repack and post--that would only succeed in causing delay). And yes, as with all other book offerings, when these are gone they are gone. There will be no 'second edition' or 'reissue'. This is the full lot forever. You are buying a collectable keepsake book that will only increase in value over time.

I am ageing them all of today and through next week . . . my students have been sent to the library to work on term papers so that I might give the full week to you . . . and I expect to have most (if not all) the books ready to post Monday, Nov. 2.

BTW: Just finished the performance manual yesterday and . . . have forgotten the page count already . . . I believe it came in around 107 pages.

Back to the dungeon,
BC
Message: Posted by: PROF BC (Oct 26, 2015 07:58AM)
I have just spoken to Dan and we have agreed, owing to many requests, to make Hallowe'en the MORE GH*ST pre-order release date with the actual launch of MORE GH*ST occurring a week later on November 7 at which time all the books will begin shipping.

What this means: if you already own and are collecting Doppelganger, you may order your particular number during that first week of pre-orders (October 31-November 6). Dan & I will check the requested number(s) against your previous orders to ensure we get it right and will ship your MORE GH*ST with the matching COA(s).

On November 7 all preorders end and any remaining stock will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

You ask, we listen.

Best,
Professor BC

Prof - may we also match it with our Spectre? Thanks.
Message: Posted by: PROF BC (Oct 26, 2015 01:00PM)
The offer is for matching with your Dopps COA numbers.

SPECTRE is a Gemini Artifacts release, and Vic handles all of that mailing. Consequently, I have no access to those numbers. Also, I was not keeping records on numbers when the original GH*ST released, so I do not have files for matching with GH*ST. Sorry. If I start trying to match numbers to the various releases there is bound to be a train wreck of people arguing over who owns which number, so I will have to limit it to matching with Dopps only (keeping Lebanon Magic Circle releases with Lebanon Magic Circle releases), please.

What an excellent idea! If you pause the picture at those 2:50/2:51 frames you will see MORE GH*ST immediately to the right of that GH*ST that he is pulling off the shelf.

Now I am prepared to be corrected on this, but I left Steve off the list simply because he doesn't seem quite the horror fan than the other three are. I have no direct evidence to support this, other than the fact that the other three have been involved in horror productions such as ghost story, the documentary above, readings of audio books by Aickman, ghost stories for Christmas, etc; whereas I don't recall Steve being involved in these types of projects, outside of the projects created by the four of them.

Then back to Triptych. I do have more Triptych photos and effects to post already. Saving those up until MG has had its time in the sun. Still have from 3-to-6 weeks work left on Triptych after I get back to it, but it is nearly completed (relatively speaking).

So on this eve of Hallowe'en, the old professor is happily immersed in the works of M. R. J@mes. My idea of heaven.

Also in those first few pages is a delightful bit of information about the aging of our books... super cool.
I won't spoil the surprise here for those who haven't read yet.

Suffice to say I am very excited about this release!

I've managed to muster up the willpower to stop at the Page 12 Challenge... for now.

PROF BC, I've said it before, I feel compelled to say it again: This is a legacy offering. You are an exceptional caretaker to the memory, monument and magic of one of the Greats. I'm astounded by your tribute(s), sir.

Gratefully,
Perkins

I have not the willpower. Of, to quote Mr. Wilde, I can resist everything except temptation. I thought Dopps was very good. I thought Spectre was excellent. This is beyond exceptional.

With only 100 copies available, I wonder how many are left?... Having read the performance manual (alas, I didn't have the willpower either), I fear that there will be many who will miss-out on a truly stonking effect.

(just in case translation is required... 'stonking' = very, very good!) ;)

Seriously, don't sit on the fence - you won't regret it.

This is magic for the thinking man. Really, the only limitations to what can be achieved with these books lies in each person's imaginative capacity. Even then, with Prof BC's legendary manuals, the owner comes out of the gate with a high degree of performance potential. I fully expect to be pulling my collection of books off the shelf decades from now to test out and perform some new variation that I've just envisioned. Investing in one of Prof BC's books grants the owner a lifetime membership into the best little club in magic, in my humble opinion.

This is one of the best books imo. I have gh*st and would never sell it. They will go together to my grave. Not sure how many books I really need at the end of the day. How many of you 100 actually perform I wonder or are you mostly collectors? Did the new manual for more G come out?

So far I'm a collector of them all...but I'm about to do a show based partly around James' ghost stories..so these two may be coming off the shelf very, very soon. I'm hoping we can get BC to do a full on demo at the ECSS II this coming January. That would be awesome.

I did not hesitate intentionally,...only had budgetary issues and then decided....I would rather be reading my MG #40 by candle light if necessary, than contribute to the elecrric company's overblown stock....and live a life without another masterpiece of Prof BC.

I have only read the first 12 pages, as suggested...while I try to endure my anticipatory rapture, until the tome arrives,...but just in the first 12 pages Prof BC has revealed one of the most unique, wonderous and incredibly creative, dedicated-to-a-legacy attributes that any such crafted collectible piece could ever contain. Those who have already wisely purchased know what I refer to as they will be as "gravely" delighted as was I...! :dancing: :readingbook:

Message: Posted by: Seth speaks (Nov 5, 2015 02:25PM)
Absolutely! They will work seamlessly together, and MG alone even has more power under the hood than any single Dopps book. One of the most awaited books from Prof BC since the original GH*ST. I would snap it up quickly--if you love Ph.o.t.O, you will probably adore MG.

I too have stopped at page 12. Looks good so far. I've enjoyed studying Spectre too. Still a bit scared to perform it yet. Need to get all my patter down before I try it out. The good Prof must have some mind to invent all this stuff. Very impressed.
I have one Dopps book, Shakespeare, but it is the seconds version with a couple of pages missing. I want to sell it as I need some cash for something else. Would anyone like to buy it from me?

Yes! I was surprised when people began ordering ambrotypes and the stock disappeared overnight. I am taking a bit of time now to make up some to include with the book orders that I am sending out this weekend and hope to make up enough to put them back in stock within the week. Stand by (and keep an eye on Lebanon's site for the 'in stock' message to appear again just in case I forget to post the fact here--as you might guess everything's a bit crazy right now between finishing up the books, sorting the orders, making labels, packing, &c., but there are *some* extra ambrotypes on the way (unsure how many just now, but perhaps a dozen or thereabout)).

Thank you for asking,
BC

A couple years back I did a seance show with the original Gh*st. I was given only 15 minutes for my performance and did 12 shows per night for a run of 4 evenings. I was the finale for a haunted lantern tour.

Because my time was so limited, I spent most of it telling my story and weaving in about how this haunted book could be used to communicate with spirits.

The book is very convincing and I had a lot of fun with it. Some of the revelations can be REAL spooky.

So, of course, I had to buy More Gh*st. I have since been devouring the performance manuel. This is so freaking good! I will definitely be writing a show with these 2 books talking. Viva la bibliomancy! Thank you Prof BC, I consider More Gh*st your finest work to date (in my humble opinion).

If you've ever seen the great old move Northwest Passage with Spencer Tracy, there is a scene about 3/4 through where Rogers Rangers are starving. There is this one fellow who isn't. He has a canvas bag with something in it. He is also not hungry. When he is asked what it is, he cackles manically and says "You ain't hungry enough yet." Turns out it was an enemy head that he was munching on.

My dear Perkins, I am looking in my canvas bag and cackling loudly, "You ain't hungry enough yet." Of course that one fellow did subsequently to being discovered, jump off a cliff, but I am not at that point yet. I do know that many more Prof BC devotees are looking in their canvas bags too and receiving sustenance. Come over to the darkside.

Most MGs have gone out as of a few minutes ago. The following have not yet gone:

Those requesting ambrotypes (I am finishing them today and they will be packed with your books to ship out Monday).

Those specifically requesting later shipment and/or holds until further notice (you know who you are).

A few trainwrecks where more than one person appears to want the same COA. Could the following please contact me via PM here at your earliest convenience and tell me the number of your Ph.o.t.O. Dopps:

Winks (I actually know your PhotO number better than you just now, as you know, but please confirm your other Dopps numbers)
J. Adlesick
T. Heinlein
S. Cauthorne
B. Orr
B. Leistikow

For the most part, these are questions of miscounting on the spreadsheet, but I want to triple check with you first to avoid issuing out the wrong numbers. And finally:

New customers and orders requesting COAs with numbers greater than 100. These all will be (re)assigned new numbers in lottery fashion/Next Available Number from the outstanding stock, but I cannot begin that process until I have cleared up the aforementioned trainwrecks (again to avoid the possibility of lotterying out a number that actually belongs to another).

My current count of remaining MGs stands at eleven.

Thank you most sincerely,
Prof BC

Two dozen ambrotypes now available on the Lebanon Circle Magic site. Bit of midnight oil, but they are ready.

A word of disclosure (because it is not in the present manual as it was in the GH*ST manual): the ambrotypes represent a faded, old, generally damaged image of M.R.J. and not a 'clean' or 'bright' photograph. Be aware of this fact before ordering. They are meant to be atmospheric and yet can be successfully projected (if desired) onto a wall or screen (with a bright enough light) to reveal good detail.

Whilst MORE GH*ST is a really wonderful addition to the Dopps family, I'm even more blown away by how it takes the original GH*ST to an even higher level. I would seriously urge any original GH*ST owners who are on the fence about purchasing MORE GH*ST to take the plunge before the last few copies sell out. It works seamlessly with the original effect whilst adding many more potential hits and opportunities to weave a story, and whilst involving twice the number of participants. I can't imagine that anyone who enjoys their GH*ST wouldn't benefit greatly from adding MORE GH*ST to their act.

Professor, you have really raised the bar with your recent releases, and PHANTOMS will always have a special place in my heart, but I think MORE GH*ST may just be my favourite of all of them. Thank you so very much for admitting that famous author into the Dopps family.

Was reading thru the manual yesterday - WOW, Prof just mind blowingly amazing !!!! You went from raising the bar once more with PotO to rocketing past Satern with MG !!
So I am guessing your next treat/release will be touching the end of our known universe !?!?

In all probability I'll keep purchasing new Doppelgängers for as long as Prof BC cares to conjure them up and I can afford them.

I suspect it will depend very much upon where the good Prof's creative juices take him.

This could well be the ultimate Prof BC book test (though I hate referring to it as a "book test" since that term tends to diminish its versatility). It has the main features of Doppelganger plus [i]loads[/i] of additional hits.

Potential buyers should know that they do not need to own Doppelganger or Gh*st. More Gh*st can easily provide an evening's entertainment on its own. It's convincingly aged as well.

It looks like 2015 is the year of Prof BC. He seems to keep outdoing himself. When it comes time to vote for the best marketed bizarre effects of this year, Ph.o.t.O, Spectre, and More Gh*st will all be on my list.

As much as I love Dopps and Gho*st it would be too expensive for me to own the whole set. I'm wondering out of the 100 copies how many even get used in performance and you only really need three (unless you often perform to a lot of people and you really want to bust them all out in a longer performance?). I could be wrong but I'm willing to bet this is more of a collectors item that sits on a shelf for most people.

Personally, I usually perform Doppelgänger with a small group of people seated round a table, and I like each participant to have their own book. So I usually have at least four books in play, often five. I also like to offer participants a choice of books, so will generally have the full set of books in the centre of the table, even if we only end up using four/five of them. I think, for me personally, future releases would be about offering participants more choice, rather than increasing the number of books in play. That, plus giving me the option to choose specific books for specific occasions/audiences (such as Christmas-themed books).
Message: Posted by: Eddie Garland (Nov 20, 2015 12:08AM)
The Dopps library accommodates a seasonal holiday selection while also providing a year-round choice of popular genres including Mystery, Horror and even though this be madness, yet there is method in 't."...Shakespeare!

I admit I have yet to use multiple books in harmony but I long to. It might even be a personal goal.
I do however definitely switch out the various books into my shoulder bag seasonally or with various objectives in mind.

These books are designed to do a whole bunch of multiple amazing things and can jazz dance like Jack Cole, they can also elegantly isolate a phrase or a single word that can make all the difference in a moment of presentational wonder.

I will also admit that that I have gazed deeply into an ambrotype to momentarily stall and get my plan together.

Whilst sitting in front of a crackling log fire last Thursday night I heard a strange scratching sound emanating from the front door. Upon investigation I discovered a dark hooded figure standing still inside the porch. With trembling hands I opened the door slowly, the figure stirred, the stench of death wafted to my nose causing me to gag. "What do you want from me?" I said, my voice full of fear.
"PARCEL" a disembodied voice croaked from beneath the hood, bony hands extending towards me holding a parcel in one and a PDA in the other "SIGN HERE" it croaked, the voice like fingernails down a chalk board. I thanked the figure and watched as it dissapeared wraithlike into the mist.

I really must complain about our postman sometime!

It has arrived! it is a work of art (as is the ambrotype)

Finally on holiday and for the first time this particularly complicated year I can devote the necessary time to sit down and concentrate properly on my copy of Prof BC's More Gh*st. I knew it was going to be an incredible item when I ordered it late last year. I knew it was both an exquisite work of art and a magnificent working tool when it arrived and I spent far too little time time with it at Christmas. Now after just a couple of days heading deeper down the rabbit hole I am again in awe of the sheer physical and mental craftmanship that the Prof puts into everything he does (and it's not as if he has a day job or anything is it?!) I'm going to take my time to "learn" what needs to be learnt with More Gh*st because it deserves nothing less and the first time I use it I know it will be devastating and completely bombproof. Just wanted to tip my hat to the Prof again and say thanks for all the hard work. And who knows, when I get home Confundamus might be sitting waiting patiently for me! (rubs hands with glee)

Does anyone have a spare M.R. James ambrotype that they’d like to sell me?

If so, please PM me. Thanks!

Hi Sean,

I’ll PM you.

Thank you for reaching out, Bogbadger.

Still looking for one. Please PM me if interested, US sellers would be most appropriate due to shipping costs for this small item. I’m in NY

Prof BC used to post that had spares that he would sell for about $15 or so. Might be worth PMing him; I'd bet he might still have some.

Thanks, Seth!

I already tried, but unfortunately he is out.

I'd love to buy an ambrotype too. I initially had two and gave one away to another Gh*st owner. Unfortunately mine broke!
Please PM me if anyone else has a spare to sell.
Thank you.
