I'd like to know a little more about this giant of mentalism.
Anyone care to share their knowledge?

Thanking you in advance,

Corona.

Tumbleweed rolls through this thread to the sound of a whistling wind.

I have looked around the threads.

If one already exists, maybe you could drop in a link?

His writings or his performances?
Most of us are familiar with him through his "13 Steps to Mentalism."

Hi Steve, I have 13 steps, but was wondering about other details. Did he do television? Write any other books? Did he do many performances? Dare I say it, Is he still with us?

Perhaps I should know more since I live in the same part of the world.
Thanks for the reply.

Thankyou Feral!

His connection with 'real' psychic work is most interesting. Wonder if anyone knows more about this?

Much of the material posted by "wisdom" AKA Mark Lewis is contradictory and probably completely false, except for the following:

Corinda was not a professional mentalist. He compiled a lot of information and did a great service to the art by publishing it.

In 13 Steps, he relates a tale of working as a psychic investigator.

Thankyou Bill, The mystery deepens.

Just realised you helped me set up my first 5 string banjo a few years ago (through your website), so thanks for that as well.

Corona.

Corinda's magic studio in Mortimer Street was a great place to visit.

Which parts of that conversation does Bill think are contradictory?

Bill is referring not only to that set of quotes but others by wisdom and the rest of Mark's aliases. Re-read his posts.

"He wrote it, he didn't write it, I hope he wrote it, maybe David Berglas wrote it, etc."
