Hello All,
I'm working through Chris Kenner's Out of Control book and was wondering what are some of his other published works? Does anyone have info on how to contact him via e-mail? I know he's incredibly busy working with DC but I hope to still get a response via e-mail.

Kenner put out a magazine with Homer Liwag called "The Magic Man Examiner." From what I understand it's tough to get ahold of, but supposedly has some real gems in it.

He published (with Dan Garrett) a manuscript on the Boomerang Rubberband, which is a really neat thing if you ever get to see it done.

I'm also certain that he had another book of his work before "Out of Control", but for the life of me I can't remember the name of it. I think it was comb-bound, but I can't be sure.

He's put out at least one set of lecture notes, "World Tour Lecture Notes"

Hope this helps.


[Just looked it up. His book was called "The Right Stuff"]

Thanks Paul! I have a copy of the "Boomerang Rubberband" and although it seems very neat in effect I've learned it does take quite a certain knack to make it work....it would make a great prelude to his "Linking Rubberband" effect. I will look into his "The Right Stuff". Again, thanks!

His first book is called 'The Right Stuff'. There is quite a bit of overlap between this book and TOOC. Still there are some very good effects. Last time I checked Tannen's had this. I got it from them a couple of years ago.

Chris also worked on Magical Arts Journal as an illustrator. I have an issue of that publication with a Coin Routine of Kenner's called "Four In Hand Surprise".

The stuff that Kenner has put out is on the inside cover or the first page of Out of Control.

He put out the Magic Man Examiner with Homer Liwag and his other book was the Right Stuff.

I don't think Chris has plans for another book anytime soon... almost all of his time is spent with Copperfield on tour.
