As everyones naming books a good author to read how bizarre is put into workable magical practice is Eugine Poinc... but all these books can be expensive... there are some amazing bizarre websites and they are free... google bizarre magic and we will see you in a few months... I advise to check all websites thouroughly these guys have some very clever ideas... genius... good luck...

I'm nut sure what you meant by your first sentence. Do you have a question on Gene Poinc's work? I'm very familiar with it if you do. Gene and I were friends, and I know his one bizarre magic book very well, a bit about the two unreleased sequels (white and Black), and the yet unpublished carnival 2-book set.

I think he means the Eugene with the magic beard.

The "poinc" part was just a slight attack of tourettes.. you know, like the guy who goes, "Narf ! "

Yes, but they are hard to find. Look at Ron's work. Gene gave him the nickname KOTAH when they met. A very fitting name.

Gene's other works won't see the light of day because although they were complete and had been delivered to the publisher (Mary Tomich), after he passed, his famly members requested them back. Thinking they could find a better deal and make more money off of his works, they approached a few other publishers, did not like what was said, and that was the end of that. Smile

I am awaiting the arrival of "Capricornian Tales" and in the meantime, re-reading "Tricks of the Imagination" along with a couple of my hauntings books. I know "Tricks of the Imagination" isn't quite a bizarre magic book, it is great for properly putting together a storytelling routine. Some of the routines in there can easily have a ghost/haunting story adapted to them.

Autumn, don't you think the guys in the Memphis magic club will have a fit when I do my first bizarre routine for them?

The only stupid question is the one not asked.
