Hey there... For those who enjoy self working mentalism and mental magic, we are proud to be re-releasing some of Howard Adams' long out of print material, OICUFESP and MINDESPA.

A few months back, we released his all new book, 666 mentalism, and as part of our agreement with Howard, we secured reprint rights to these works formerly only available from Howard at private lectures about 20 years ago.

http://www.leapinglizardsmagic.com/howar......tion.htm will show you info on all three of these, and there are, as always, generous free samples so you can make sure it is what you want before you buy!

Here is some info about these two books.

HISTORY OF OICUFESP AND MINDESPA


OICUFESP and MINDESPA were all original effects and not based on any columns or other books. Both were published so Howard Adams could have material to sell at the lectures he gave mostly in the Hollywood, California area (self published in the 70’s and 80’s). His magician friend Bob Wagner (now deceased) also used his books for his lectures. Mr. Wagner took Howards material over to Japan where he gave many lecture. There are only 200 copies of OICUFESP of each of the 10 volumes. Another series Howard wanted to start was to be called OGICUFESP but he never had time to do so.

Howard's column in Genii Magazine purposely ran for 27 issued (2+7=9) 9 is Howards lucky number. The MINDESPA series ran for 12 issues and there were only 100 copies of each self printed for his lectures.

Howard Adams was born in 1931 in Buffalo, New York. He started magic around age 12. He answered an ad that Burling Hall ran in (he thinks) the Conjurers Magazine asking for writers to condense all the card effects ever published to be put in many volumes. He condensed about 60 effects for him but Mr. Hall stopped the project for unknown reasons. Howard spent all his Saturday mornings in Gene Gordon”s Magic Shop in downtown Buffalo and his afternoons watching the serials at the Rialto and Victoria Theaters in Buffalo. This led him in his later life to write the 12 volumes of MINDESPA (a mental serial of 12 chapters).

His effects have appeared in many magazines including Genii, Conjurers, Pentagram, Hugards Magic Monthly, The Phoenix, The New Phoenix, Don Tanners The Mentalist and many different magazines that Karl Fulves has published. Currently he and his wife are retired from work and live in Laguna Niguel, California near the Pacific Ocean. Howard is currently spending most of his time going through his notes (thousands and thousands of pages) and continues writing new series of books called 888 Mentalism (88 tricks with 8 cards), 999 Mentalism (99 tricks with 9 cards), 101010 Mentalism (100 tricks with 10 cards) and their sequels, More 666 Mentalism, More 888 Mentalism, More 999 Mentalism and More 101010 Mentalism.
