For me, it was the lexicon phenomena. It's clever application of an unorthodox method made my head spin. I've improved it a lot, and understand devin knight has released some improvement/wrinkle on it.

My question to you is - what piece of work of his has really 'spoken' to you. What gave you that little moment we sometimes experience when we read something for the first time and say "wow, now that I like, and that I'll use".

Acidus Plus looks like it must have been a revolutionary manuscript at the time. It marked the first appearances of Millard Longman’s Acidus Novus and Al Mann’s Azonic Force (as well as a hybrid technique called Azonic Rent.)

I pretty much am an Al Mann fiend.

I have most of his works and I aim to get them all by the end of this year.

My fav has to be 101 Psychic Feats as it was the first one I purchased.

I still refer back to it when I am looking for new ideas.

Peace & love

Out of the few I've read, 'The ***ed Thing' had the piece that most sparked the imagination for me.
Some people hear voices.. Some see invisible people.. Others have no imagination whatsoever.

it appears I somehow left out a letter. there should be four stars and the first letter in the sequence is a d. I didn't choose to put the stars, the word gets bleeped out on here.

This was a manuscript which concerned Sadie Hawkins, a girl from Dogpatch who was never able to get a date and, through the efforts of her father, became "The Dated Thing."

Thanks guys. Your extra clues allowed me to find the book test description on Mann's bibliography site. It sounds interesting, but not up my alley.

Thanks again,

Elliott

Well I have to say I am so impressed with The Glass Box Prediction manuscript that I'm going to have to say that is my favorite. I know it is shared with Devin Knight too but Al Mann was from what Devin said a huge part in it. It's fun to do and logical.


Good magic to all,

it's not so much the booktest itself that I like, as I'm not really a fan of book tests, but the method used that I found original and potentially applicable to several other settings.
