Thanks for the heads up. I'll check into this ASAP. Obviously some mistake was made by them.

I've talked with the tech support folks at demon.net and they assure me that my website was NEVER flagged by them. They state categorically that in fact they NEVER flag websites regarding content.

I PMed Ian who told me that this message came up when he went to page 3 of my website http://www.geocities.com/larrybarnowsky/kotr3.html but when he tried just now, no such message came up. It sounds more like some glich, virus, or bad silicon Karma.

BJ,
I'm glad you like those two packet effects. Urokinase is a core card effect of mine. Zero Sum Game is a great quickie which you can do in your hand and without any table.

As far as anything up my sleeve, there is a baffling card effect which didn't make it into KOTR because it was so new and not fully audience tested. It's a favorite of mine now, but if you wait for the January 2009 issue of MAGIC magazine to come out you'll be able to read the full explanation with photos.

This is a GREAT book.
I have the collector edition and I think it is a work of art: clear photos (more than 450!!), well written, a companion DVD......what else would I need?
Excellent job.
Underpriced.

Thanks amerigo and magicorik for the positive feedback.
Some news:
Last Saturday I performed and taught effects from both of my books at a lecture in Clifton Park New York. The effects from Kingdom of the Red included Three Lesson, Rendezvous Aces, Wedding Ring Redux, and Urokinase. From 21st Century Coin Mechanics I performed and taught Coins From Vegas, Digestible Coins, and Boomerang Coins as well as URV technique and the Flying Changeover Palm. The 2 hour lecture was very well received signing books and doing one on one instruction after the lecture.

If you go to my my website and click the link "card flourishes" in the first paragraph, a short video of card spinning moves from KOTR will load.

Does anyone have know Matthew Savin? He ordered Kingdom of the Red by Paypal but did not include his shipping address. I've emailed him but I get a message back saying his mailbox is full. Any help would be appreciated.

I received my book & DVD today. I am so excited to get into it after reading several reviews but I am going to save it for vacation next week. After just flipping through the book for 3 minutes I can say it is an extrodinary book from the standpoint of paper. print, and photographs. I had read the reviews and many people had talked about the physical book itself but it is beyond my expectations. You have a quality product Larry and I expect the contents will exceed the physical book.

Thank you for your time and help. I will post a follow-up note after I read through it next week.

Thanks magic-dabra for those positive comments. I look forward to your follow up review.

One update: A fabulous original card effect of mine called "Chance or Choice" will appear in MAGIC Magazine in the February 2009 issue.

My turn to chime in
I posted in a different thread explaining I was after a book with a bit of everything in but mainly cards as needed to add to my close up arsenal, larry promptly pm'd me telling me about the kingdom of the red and what its about, when someone goes out of there way to write to me, (and it was a single sentence) I feel its my duty to check out what its all about, and I'm glad I did, not read a bad word about it and have placed my order and wait for its arrival, also larry personally offered to sign it which I love, cant wait to get practising and will let you all know how it goes

Was Larry's book ever reviewed in Magic or Genii? I don't recall seeing anything.
Just wondering.

Hi motown,

You never saw Kingdom of the Red reviewed in MAGIC or Genii for the simple reason that I never sent them a copy to review. These magazines don't review books or tricks unless they are submitted to them. Folks on the Café have been kind enough to write up their own opinions of my book and I think those reviews speak for themselves. If you still have some doubts, just order the book and companion DVD and if you are unhappy with your purchase, return it for a full refund.

Barry,
Thanks for your positive comments and support.

David,
I'm currently working on another book of both new and old original material. I have not as yet set a target date for publication.


Best,

Larry

Thanks so much for your support King14.

Two bits of news.

For Café members only, I will be providing FREE Priority Mail shipping on Kingdom of the Red through Thanksgiving (in the USA only). PM me for details on how to order through the website without paying for shipping.

I can't say enough good things about Kingdom of the Red.

Urokinase kills people every time, and there's no drawbacks - amazing angles, nothing to prepare, fully examinable, and minimal sleights. It's as solid a piece of magic as I've ever come across.
The current economic crisis is due to all the coins I've vanished.

I just received both books - "Kingdom of the Red" and "21st Century Coin Mechanics" from Larry Barnowsky.

All I can say is a big WOW! The quality of the books are superb and the contents are so rich with useable techniques and routines. Larry really put in the work on the explanations and photo illustrations - you can really follow them easily.

I am very pleased with both books.

Thanks, Larry for making them available to us all.

Thanks so much to Frman11, James, and Andy for those kind remarks.

Someone PMed me asking what effects in the book would be good for beginners.

Here are the ones I'd recommend:

Ch. 5 Entropy II (cards)
Ch. 14 Natural Selection (cards)
Ch. 27 All Heads Up (coins)

Most of the material in the book is geared to magicians with basic skills. However, all important moves are taught in detail in both the book and the DVD.
