I don't recall a best publication thread for 2007? The search isn't working, so if it was posted and I miseed it, I apologise and offer that excuse in advance.

1. You can pick only one item (print or video).
2. It can't be your own item or one you were involved in.
3. It must have been available publicly.
4. It must have been released in 2007.
5. You can include a 'best gimmick/item' if you like too.

My vote goes to 'Paul Brook - The Gift' for reasons mentioned in two other threads about this book this week.

I didn't buy a gimmick that I feel is worth mentioning.

The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.

Great work, that book. I'm soaking the ideas in slowly... I'll eventually post my thoughts on Ponderings in a more in depth fashion, promise.

Paul Vigil's routine "Diplopia" is a real winner!

Ponderings by Sean Waters was excellent!

The Witches Almanac by Outlaw was the best item received and the only marketed "prop" I currently use. TOPS!!!

One too many,

I would say my Witches Almanac but technically I got it in 08
No one said it would be easy, or did they?

Check out my all new book "Chicken Scratches" visit my lulu store for more information.

I can't remember if it was in 2007 (when I bought it), but "Switchcraft" has been a fanastic work this last year (and continues to grow all the time). "Hat's off" to Elliot.

I also really enjoyed "The Gift" and "Mephisto's Journey" by Paul Brook and "Mitox" by Phil Smiff. All very creative and excellent books.

To the gentlemen above (who mentioned my book), I thank you! I could not be more pleased that you have found worth in it. Thank you.
