Bob,Dan,PMC,Rochaz, Dan, Christo, and Pablo:

Thanks so much for your kind words! Being in Afghanistan right now, I don't get as much internet time as I'd like to be able to participate here more, but is very nice to see that some are getting good use out of the material.

Thanks!
Bryn

Take care Bryn, we are a lot waiting for further issues of your work. After "The Safwan Papers", maybe "The Jalalabad Papers" Smile
Wish the best for you.

Thanks, cryder. I already have a couple of names in mind (J-Bad is one of the places I HAVEN'T hit yet!)

Work on the "sequel" to The Safwan Papers is progressing, but much in the same fashion I detailed in the intro to Safwan, the final product will have to wait until I can put some finish time into it this winter.

Thanks much!
Bryn

Thank so much, Tony. That means a lot.

FYI, our replacement Cav Squadron will be here soon, and we can start training them up to take over our mission. Hopefully we will be home for Christmas.

I've been working on a few new items, and like my last deployment, I think I got a new book out of it. I'll spend some free time this winter playing catch-up on here and organizing my "notes" for the book into something coherent.

Thanks,
Bryn

I think we all are fans of mentalism that is impromptu and powerful. Effects that can be performed with essentially borrowed materials (or no props at all) are especially important.

Effects that don't require you to have "your stuff" are priceless, and "The Safwan Papers" is full of 'em.

With the exception of one or two effects, these can all be performed spur of the moment with minimal prep.

Some thoughts:

"Seven" is a great approach to a Kollosal Killer type routine. This has been a goto effect for me for a long time. Although I must admit am currently using a combination of Seven and KK (four cards, instead of the one), the wording for the equivoque has been priceless.


"Bottle cap Koran" Is a sweet little piece using nothing besides a coin and some bottle caps, great for when having a few beers with the fellas...

"Your lucky nite" is an excellent take on the bank night premise. It is a cool methodology that can be adapted to other plots as well.

"Boht" is a great technique to have in your arsenal for "which hand" routines.

"Himberstring" I haven't tried, but it's a cool idea.

"The 4 dollar billet index" is simple but ingenious. Totally utilitarian and adaptable. Turn any wallet into an index.


Highly recommended.

I look forward to the next one!

Matt:

Thanks so much for the purchase and review of "The Safwan Papers." I am both supprised and delighted, obviously, in the "legs" this book has had, and in the great words it has recieved touting the items as "workers."

I am back from Afghanistan now, so just a LITTLE more access to the internet than I had at 12K feet...lol... so hopefully I can send any future orders without much of a delay.

Regarding the "next one...." yea, soon....

Thanks,Bryn

Just read through it and have to agree that´s brilliant thinking. YOUR LUCKY NITE alone is the price of the ebook worth. This effect is so great, and absolutely hands off! Smile
BOHT is a great approach to " coin in hand".
Highly recommended!

I have read through this brilliant eBook once and I must say I'm very impressed. Its is just the sort of thing I like to perform, as like Bryn, my main performance arena is impromptu or close-up or both. These effects fit my bill well.
The simplicity of thinking, coupled with the basic or borrowed apparatus and clever psychology, make these effects read very well. I am looking forward to road testing them.
The Lucky Nite is similar in method to another bank night variation I have recently see but has one touch which makes look even more fun.
BOHT is definitely one I'll be using too, especially when combined with principles from Prevaricator by Patrick Redford.
All in all, Bryn, I think you've done a great job of this. I am a very satisfied customer, even if 3 years later than some of the others on here...

Merlin:

Ahhh...don't worry about the "3 years later" thing....I LIKE to think SAFWAN is timeless....lol

Regarding what you wrote, please DO check out Redford's works on the theme and I am glad he, and Finley, have both asked to menions variations of BOHT in their great works. Regarding "Your Lucky NITE," I have had no greater compliment than Richard Osterlind seeing fit to write up his own version of it in his book Mystique...great stuff truly.

Thanks for the comments!
Bryn

SEVEN: Thank you, very much....me too... (why wouldn't you?...lol)

SEQUEL: Yes, yes, there is. It will require a seperate post, though. I'm hoping after Ghazni comes out it will spurn some more interest in Safwan, so I am leaving this just for comments on Safwan effects....

Thank you,
Bryn

Over 3 1/2 Years! I know I'm amazed, and of course very thankful.

Hopefully my next eBook has even 1/10th the legs!

Thanks,
