I am excited to let you all know that John Bannon has said his new book, "Dear Mister Fantasy", is in the printers and is due out right when the LMVI convention starts on....JUNE 12!! Start marking off the days on your calender people! This is an all card book by John Bannon! He promises it to be very good and including:

"Dear Mr. Fantasy contains, among other things, Ace Assemblies (classic-style), a Triumph variation, some mathematical card tricks and locations, and a self-working poker deal"

I'm counting the days!

I thought it was to be called "Cardzilla"? Or is that another book in the works by him?

Does anyone know if the new book will repeat anything from his first two books, in particular "smoke and mirrors"? I don't have smoke and mirrors, but have heard good things about it, but obviously won't pursue the purchase of the new book if it is a compilation of the old.

thanks
Life is a test. It is only a test. If this had been a real life, you would have been given further instructions on where to go, and what to do.

Here's a quote from John Bannon from the genii forums that will answer this question and give you some more information about the book.

Quote:
Thanks to all for your interest and support.

I wanted to clear up any mystery about a forthcoming book. I have drafted a new book, called Dear Mr. Fantasy, which requires only (only!) final editing, some credit cites, photos, illustrations and production. The project is not vaporware and has its own critical mass, but is moving glacially. I had hoped to have it done already, but real life got in the way. Due to professional demands, I will not get back to it until November, so 2003 does not look likely. I am aiming for early 2004, hopefully in time for FFFF in April.

While not the magnum opus “Cardzilla” (that one must come later), Dear Mr. Fantasy will be all card tricks and all done with a regular deck (except for one packet trick). Among other things, the book will feature: “Degrees Of Freedom” (it’s not a card trick, it’s a toy); “Bullet Train” (a routine of three Ace assemblies; iconoclastic, syncopated, and interrobang); and “The Power Of Poker” (a bonus self-working poker deal by Dave Solomon).

Some of the material was previewed in my lecture at the TSD convention earlier this year. I note the discussion of “Last Man Standing,” and I am glad it seems to be surviving the crucible. If there is interest, I’ll post the current write-up (though no photos/illustrations yet) on Chris Aguilar’s “Conjure Nation” board.

Thanks again.

Yes the quote in my original post is the latest from Bannon himself. He will be having a book of ONLY card effects that are BRAND NEW. However (to DOCELK) I would highly recomend searching out for S and M as it is a FANTASTIC book. There is enough good material in there to create an entire restaurant act. I am currently reading it and it is fantastic.

Then what I said in an other thread, that I guessed that he is going to publish the book himself, must have had been accurate.
