Just found on e-bay a new copy listed from £7.50 The capricornian tales is one of the best books available or at least should be in the library of any discerning performer.

Ragerds,

It is indeed a quality book to own.
INteresting plots devised and actually performed by Chelman.
The props he has created for them are fantastic!

This book is wonderful. I can't wait for the new Hauntics to be released.

If the Surnateum is any indication, there are going to finally be some explanations for the wonderful "relics and artifacts" presented there by The Collector.

Gede,
Mine also went through a fire...a friend of mine perished in a fire in his home, only his magic collection in the other end of the home went with little damage. After his death several items were given to me as a "momento". The edges of the book are black, and the dustcover was burned onto the cover...

Weird that this book seems to attract fire... Smile

Ok so which one should I get? I cant get both right now. And one of them seems to attract fire. Though I'm sorry for what happen. I just don't want one of them to suddenly become out of stock or print.

Paisa -- I think it depends on what the focus of your performing is. Capricornian Tales is full of examples of fine storytelling magic that will inspire you to take this kind of magic in new directions. Seance is full of
very strong material focused on ... well on performing seances. While much
of the material in Seance can be used in other presentations, most ot the material
contained therein is designed for the seance room.

As far as going out of print, Seance was just reprinted, so perhaps you would be safer to wait on that one? Only a guess, I don't know how many they reprinted.

All I can tell you is that both contain a great deal of excellent material, so you won't be sorry, whichever you choose.

Get Capricornian tales, whenever you are reading, make sure you are soaked in you tub, when not reading, wrap it in plastic bags and drop it in a tank!

seriously though, remember paisa, it's all about your preferences! while seance needs a "fixed" and prepared room, capricornian would be more of a "walk around" effects compared to it.

think about what suits YOU and what YOU want to perform!
hope this helps!
Double posters should be shot!

No really!!

Capricornian Tales is not walking around miracles...on the contrary, one must sit down, light a candle or three, invoke the Gods, and get to work...

I'd take either one if I could, but right now if Rolls-Royce cost ten cents a carload, I couldn't buy a Yugo hub-cap! Smile
