I have a new book coming out called Illusions of Influence. It is my treatise on equivoque and includes my work and ideas dealing with the use of equivoque as well as some routines contributed by others such as our own Greg Arce and Paolo Cavalli. It is at the printer's right now and I expect it to be available by the first full week of April if not before.

The price is $35 US and includes shipping to the Continental US, international purchases will have to pay actual shipping so please contact me for a full total. You will be charged only for the actual shipping costs, not for the packing and "handling". I will accept payment via Money Order, Cashier's Check, personal check (will have to clear), and Paypal. Anyone interested in purchasing a copy should contact me via PM or through the email address on my profile.

Thanks to those who have helped me along the way by their contributions and by reading over the drafts and offering their advice.

Sorry, I had a long day yesterday and just forgot to put that information down. The book is an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", saddle stitched, and is 56 pages long. Of those 56 pages about 45 are full of content. Thanks for looking. Any other questions, please ask.

Some of them are full of nothing (blank), others are full of copyright information, and I have one page in there that I felt was appropriate for the coming elections and is full of bull.Smile

I have had a request or two for the table of contents. However there is no table of contents to this book as it is intended to be read from beginning to end. But I do have sections to it and here is the information on those.

There are three main topics: Eliminations- which covers the how to of equivoque, Scripting- which discusses my ideas regarding how to script an equivoque routine, and Performing- which covers not the performance of the routine, but some advice regarding performing in general as well as a story or two about my own experience performing.

There are seven routines in the book spread out in the different sections. Four are contributions and three are my own routines. Three of the contributions have been printed before in the respective creator's own works. The routines are: The Invisible Aces, E-Wave, Scorch, Floater, E Plurbis Unum, Ogami's Option, and Jewel of the Pile.

I hope this answers some questions that some of you may have.

Samuel,

Is such a page actually in your manuscript or were you being facetious. (Sorry, I couldn't decide based upon the smiley face.)

Thanks for the info.

It's just a joke Mike. I may have actually done something like that if I had thought about it beforehand, but no, no such page exists.

I hope so. I think it's good. But then again, I do know the writer somewhat intimately.

Update.

I spoke with my printer Friday the 5th. He told me then that he had a few problems that delayed him. According to him I should have the book in hand and be ready to begin shipping by Wednesday the 9th at the latest. Here's to hoping. Thanks to those who have ordered a copy.
For those who are in the UK, can now say that the entire cost of the book with shipping and everything is $45 US. For anyone else interested in a copy who is from an international country, please pm me and I will find out what the cost of shipping will be. Thank you for your time.

I think it is a splendid course on equivoque. It is a fantastic guide and introduction to those who want to learn, and full of advice, observations, and valuable input to those who already use it. This book not only explores the "How to" but the "Why". And the routines are brilliant, as is the exploration and explanation.

Fantastic work Sam!

This book is highly recommended.

After much looking and considering of the options, I have determined that the price for international priority shipping is $10 for most locations. Therefore, the price for international customers is $45 regardless of your location. I hope this helps those of you who have asked about the cost of shipping.

So to reiterate.

US and Canadian customers $35 US shipping included
International customers $45 US shipping included

I just found out that shipping to Canada has gone up to where it is nearly equal to international shipping so though I am sorry for this, all orders from here on outside the US are $45. If you have already ordered from me, you are not affected by this. I will honor the price I had set when you ordered. Thank you and I am sorry for any confusion.

Illusions of Influence is now available for purchase and shipping. I got the books today and they are beautiful if I do say so myself. If you have purchased a copy it is going in the mail tomorrow. If I am hit by a train, I will mail out your book before I expire from my injuries.

If you are interested in purchasing one please contact me. I accept money order, check(must clear before I ship), and Paypal. $35 US and $45 for all other locations shipping included. I will sign the book if you wish.
Thank you for your interest.

Samuel Catoe
