There's been a lot of stuff on mem deck work over the past few years. What now are people's favourite books for mem deck stuff? :)

I have to say Tamariz's mnemonica is still unbeatable in terms of any mem deck source
although my first stack is Redford Stack, I have not yet found anything that particular interested me in his book at this point.
I always go back to Mnemonica to find more inspirations

and also Simon Aronson's Try the Impossible is close second...

Everything by Aronson.

Also Asi Windís Chapter One has a few mem deck routines

Mnemonica (obviously) and In Order to Amaze

I'll put in a plug for Greg Chapman's duo: [i]Details of Deception[/i] and [i]The Devil's Staircase.[/i] If you do advanced gambling-oriented material, these two books are golden. But even if not, there is a ton of information in both books that will up anybody's memdeck game.

I have to vote for Darwin Ortiz's _The Annotated Erdnase_. Sorry.

It was Mike Close's Workers series, (may have been the third book) that turned me on to Simon Aronson's stack work.
I highly recommend 'Workers'.

I completely agree with the Mnemonica and In Order to Amaze picks.
