A friend of mine, Tom Meseroll, has just release his first novel entitled Magus: Master of Martial Magic, Book I, The Magician’s Primer. The center character is Nicholas Thompson who, like Tom himself, is a person involved in magic, martial arts and quantum physics. Nicholas searches for the limits of what we think is reality, and what could be achieved with real magic. Nicholas leaves his job as a professor in astrophysics for the mountains of Northern Pakistan to train in self awareness and controlling reality with Magi, and then uses those powers to combat evil forces of another time and place intent on taking control of the world.

The story weaves in magicians Eugene Burger, Jeff McBride and others that Tom knows personally and received their permission. He also describes the Magic Castle (with insights and permissions from Milt Larson and Carol Marie, the Magic Castle Historian).

Eugene Burger wrote of the book "A fabulous tale incorporating Magic, Martial arts and Eastern Philosophy. I loved it! Tom Meseroll has managed to meld the many forms and philosophies of magic into a marvelous tale of good and evil. I can't wait for the sequel!!"

Tom is a Directory of Systems Engineering in the Aerospace Industry, has practiced martial arts for 25 years and is an expert in Okinawan weaponry. He has been a long time member of S.A.M., I.B.M., M.C.A, A.M.A (The Magic Castle), and the Magic Circle in London. He has won the 2007 Close-Up Magician of the year for the Southern California Assembly of S.A.M (previously won by Dai Vernon and Al Goshman), and a trophy for Best Innovation and Creativity in Magical Performance at the Jeff McBride Master Class.

This book is a real exciting tome – and will invite you to explore your limits as a magician.

You can find out more about Tom, and order a copy of the limited (500 numbered copies) hardbound book at his website: http://www.martialmagician.com.

I read Tom's book a few weeks ago. It is a wonderful, fun, engaging and fast read. It has some great lines in it that reflect Tom and his mentors philosophy in magic. I hope that he writse additional adventures of the Magus.

If you want a little taste of the book, here's a link that gets you to a video of a reading that was done at Jeff McBride's Magic and Meaning Conference. Because it's a free site, you'll have to click the button, wait for the countdown, and then click again, but you'll get a great insight of how magic can be magical in life.

I had the pleasure of meeting Tom at the Magic and Meaning Conference, and I have started reading his book. I am about half way through, and I am really enjoying it.

While it is not a book of instruction on magic tricks, it is definately magic related. It is an amazing tome based on real magic and real science. Buy it, and read it.
Beware of this and that.
