I've just bought the Eddie Fechter book which includes all Fechter's work except 'Eddie Fechter's Dice Holdouts'.

Excuse the ignorance of someone who knows little about dice, but what exactly is a dice holdout?

I know a little about dice. And a little about holdouts.

Seems to me that I'd better pm you.

I believe the dice holdouts are not true holdouts, like card ones used by gamblers, but merely little holders you have under the edge of you jacket to "steal" dice for switching.

Dice Hold-outs is a reference made to dice games using a cup. The dice cheat would hold out (usually 1, sometimes 2)dice from the cup. This die would be added to the other dice when being dumped out of the effect...the die is controled for a specific number to come up. It is usually used in games like Indian Dice, Horse Dice, Yahtzee, or Bacgamon. Steve Forte demonstrates some beautiful work on his Gambling Protection series tapes/DVD's. Incedently, Fechter was a master of this...he used to actually hustle known hustlers. Also, Fechter taught Forte the basics of dice hold-out work.
