I think this is a great ideal ..How many times have you seen people asked about books on the subject . Now we can just send them to this site .

Eventually and hopefully it could be a 'complete' resource worth recommending. That would be nice.

I also have this idea. Once there is a Gathering and (pun intended) every one is on the same page how about this thought...

As an example...There is a convention or event in the west. Someone in the west gets a Table. The Authors in the east or midwest then kick in a couple of bucks for the table and send some books out. It is then an aggregate table. That way WE can have a presence with out all the expence and heart ache of actually making ther trip just to sell 2 or three books. Just a thought. The one working the table would have his/her own book naturally and the 'pay' for selling the other authors material would be the table paid for by the group (individually IF one wants to participate.) No group dynamics and politics involved. (screw that) Did I say just an thought?

All hail to the ancient ones who still practive the wisdom of group marketing and sales having a bigger impact than a single lonely voice.

Translation of last post via a channel from Travler. "It means that the more practioners of really neat stuff work together, they get more bookings from the bored masses. Of course it doesn't hurt for the peddlers of these learned tomes and wonderous effects to have a way of affordably gaining the attention of the ones studying for advanced degrees in entertaining, much less BSP." ("An please watch your spelling - practice, not practive - or the the people who read this will think you be er-al-illiterate-whatever.)

Traveler can really boil things down.

Note: MyM just channeled in and said "Everett, not everyone knows that BSP is referred to in the entertainment industry as Blatant Self Promotion. Please convey this so other's can enjoy the fruits of labor and study."

Back to turn on the spiritlights to see what the weredog is barking at.

Now I'm getting a headache because all of them (the channel group) send so fast they mis-spell everything. Heck, I'm just a ghost hunter, not a spelling teacher.

Doug, I am going to be making the convention rounds this year to promote my new book, Theatrical Magic - The Book, before and after the release. I would be interested in doing something along these lines since I will be doing it anyway. While The Book is not exclusively a bizarre book, it does include several bizarre routines and it will be published by a major publisher in that field!

PM and let's talk!
Swing hard, swing often, and we'll catch ya on the Flip-Side!

Doug,
I'm truly honoured to be on your Bookshop.13 web site, and just realised that I am the very 13th book - even better!
Thank you for you kind and generous words too. I am delighted to be (if I'm right) the first a C of E Priest to appear on a Bizarre/Dark Arts Booklist.
Very brightest blessings to you.
Mark
