Love this book, it's well worth getting if you can find it. Not sure if it's OOP or not.
TFATOHR is one of my favourite books on magic. I been told that Harry Riser was one of the mentor's to Michael Close.
Stephen Minch is in the work with a new book about Harry Riser, which I allready have pre-ordered.
Harry Riser is the man.

PS Don't ask me to review this book, do as Caleb said and check ot Little Egypt Magic for one. It Should be there somewhere, I read it once.

The book is very good and I refer to it often. Descriptions are well written and thorough. There is a good mix of material: cards, coins, cups&balls, balls/cone/box, the walnuts trick, plus. Good history on the effects too if your into that.

Hi Peo-

Do you know if the new Harry Riser book includes his Egg Bag routine?

Also, who is writing this book and how can one pre-order it?

Thanks,

Mark Weinkle

Hi Mark,

Sorry, I don't know yet what the book will include, I only know that Stephen Minch is just now in the process of writing it.
Talk to him via Hermetic Press of pr-ordering it.

I'll throw my hat into the ring as a great proponent of this work. Well worth the attention and study of the serious student of magic. Lots of principles and "whys" as well as hows that yield great nuggets to the person willing to take the time to mine the material.

He was the "surprise" guest speaker at a small card clinic I attended last year. A very nice man with some great stories about some of magic's masters.

Hi,

I know that Stevens Magic has the book, as I was in yesterday, and saw a number of copies on the shelf. The price includes shipping.

Have a good one,

Bob Phillips
