Hi Bryn. I am glad you are back. I hope you enjoyed your adventure. I am still using using your effects. BTW, how is your adopted dog doing?

Looking forward to hearing more about your next project Bryn. I LOVE Safwan.


Thanks, Minty. Apprecite the kind words, and hopefully I'll have it finished around the holidays (I have a supprise or two I'm working on for it.)

DYNOOOOO-Mike! Great to hear from you, and good to BE back. Last year in Afghanistan was certainly as you described it. I raised the pups in Iraq in '05 from day one to about 10 weeks old. It was two other soldiers that adopted them and brought them to the USA, but Buckethead, Goggles, and HalfStein are still doing just fine.

Thanks much.
Bryn

Hi everyone

I have been lucky enough to have been working my way through Bryn's 'The Safwan Papers' recently. I am quite new to the art, so Bryn's work was previously unknown to me so I didn't quite know what to expect.

Bryn recommended his effect 'Seven' to me as it matched something that I was after. I was dubious when I started reading the effect, due to the fact that the only prop is an invisible deck of cards.............I mean a completely invisible deck, as in non-existent. I read through many times, got my wording down and thought I would try it out. It wasn't until I actually performed it last night that I realised what a powerful effect it is. I WOWed myself and the spectators with it. It was spectacular!! Such a simple concept, but with brilliant results.

Bryn explains things in a simple, but direct manner which made it very easy to follow. I have only performed this effect so far as I've only had the ebook for a very short time, but I've read through the other effects and can see fantastic potential in them. I am auditioning for a magic club in my area in 3 months and have already decided to use 'Seven'. I will being trying out a couple of the other effects very soon and am really excited about it. I shall let you all know how I get on.

Thanks very much for this beautiful effect Bryn and I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

Regards.

Tim

Bryn has a new book out soon. I'm sure it will be also well worth buying!

Good man Tim. One of the smartest things a mentalist can do is have 7 at their disposal. Just you and them ... and words. Not very many either.

You can get to 7 in less than a minute if you wanted to. But why. Have fun, involve 4 or 5 spectators.

Fantastic.

I got this the other day, and I can honestly say, "Wow!" This is a wonderful e-book of great and (more importantly) useable material. "7" is a great version of Kenton Knepper's Kollosal Killer, only instead of an i****, only a single card is used. No outs, no switches, just a great effect. "Your Lucky Night" is going straight into my show. I have been looking for this exact routine for a very long time. I only wish that I had thought of it. "Bottle Cap Koran" is a wonderful impromptu effect. "BOHT" is an extremely clever way of dealing with a 50/50 proposition and I will be using it alot! "Himberstring" is one of the best effects in the book. It is really a "thinking-outside-of-the-box" effect using a gimmick that you might already have. At the moment, I do not own one of those gimmicks, but I may have to buy one for no other reason than to perform this effect.

All in all this e-book is worth much more than the price. Go and buy this today! You won't be sorry! Smile

For 7 a card isn't even neccessary. You can write it on a beer coaster and let them put their beer on it. HA HA!!!

Safwan Papers was the very first mentalism that I ever bought.

It's got a lot to answer for Smile

Several years have passed since I bought Sawfwan Papers (over two babies ago!) and I still perform effects from it.

Thanks for the great comments on Safwan and the interest in LOGAR.

THE LOGAR SCROLLS eBook is now available. Ordering info is in my signature line.

Hopefully it will have it's own thread soon with more information on the book.

I agree with the others about "7". I perform that one a lot and it never fails!

Pretty sure this is my first post in the Café.

Anyway, after combing far and wide for mentalism resources that meet the conditions Bryn talks about in SAFWAN (little or no prep, repeatable, impromptu, organic, etc.) I put an order in.

I'll write more later, but 'Seven' is everything the preceding reviewers have said it is. The fairness of the last phase is awesome.

I have 'Hedonists Make Up All the Rules' from Paul Harris's AofA, and loved this theme, but didn't care for the idea of acting impatient, nor repeated ambiguity along the same lines.

Also enjoyed the historical background which gives the book context and a heart.

More later after repeated performances.

Thanks, Jeff. Welcome.

I'm so very lucky that THE SAFWAN PAERS has seem to stand the test of time in that I think your future performance comments will be bolstered after repeated performances....

I appreciate the comments, and look forward to future discussions!

This ebook is certainly great...not sure why I waited so long to grab it since I have had Double Down for a couple years and love that. The Logar Scrolls, I have found to be equally as fantastic...Thanks to Bryn for his great customer service and his releases to the masses over the years.

Thanks for the nice words on "The Logar Scrols."

The topic Richard started here in Penny about LOGAR was moved to "Mentally Speaking," but I'd certainly enjoy the thoughts on any of the the effects to be discussed here, in PM or email. I LOVE those effects!
