My book is on the way. (Number #4). The manual looks so amazing, but I refuse to read it until I've got the book. So EXCITING! The Prof rocks!

Benny, I read the history and the book twice before the manual. It's worth the wait.

Ben:
The manual has a 'stop here' page that you can read up to without tipping the method. Go ahead and read the introductory material including the 1910 short story in the manual then stop where the warning comes before you get to the method. You'll be glad you did. Arthur Gray's short story will give you all the background you will need so you can really get into the book when it arrives.

The book is intended to be the 'minute book' that Arthur Gray used to write his famous short story.

Arthur Gray, of course, was one of the chaps who used to sit in on those famous M.R. James readings at Eton, and this story is his tribute to James.

In essence, PHANTOMS is your conduit to channel an M.R. James atmosphere directly into your performance space.

Enjoy!

I followed PROF BC instructions. I read up to the stop page and the entire minute book. Then dove into the method. The manual itself is huge at 140 pages, with some amazing routines.

At last, a rapping or knocking object that makes absolute sense!

Logic and magic combined. . .

Does it get any better than that !?

PS: Great looking piece of apparatus.

APologies for jumping the gun. The pot above was meant to appear in the area for the effect Death came knocking. chalk the error up to my advancing state of senility.

Got no sleep last night... reading the manual. All I can say is FANTASTIC111 I've been collecting book tests along with wallets and watches for more than almost 50 years now and this is the best so far. Great back story, spectacular methods and I can hardly wait to get it down pat for presentation.
Many thanks to Rick and Prof BC. By the way delivery was super fast from Wednesday purchase to Friday delivery.

thanks again and best regards,
Damon

RCP has a thread on PHANTOMS down in the crypt that you should look into.

Don't neglect the chat room on the Outlaw web page. Your manual has the code word in it that lets you enter.

Remember to email Outlaw for your performance manual ebook when you buy PHANTOMS.

Just returned this afternoon from a two-day performance trip to Asheville, NC, where I performed PHANTOMS three times to a most gratifying response. I was at the Grove Park Inn, a gorgeous resort that opened in 1913, where I was lucky enough to stay in the room famously haunted by the "Pink Lady" (room 545) and give one of the performances, the midnight seance, in the Houdini room (room 642) where Houdini actually stayed on August 25, 1921.

A splendid few days and a perfect setting for PHANTOMS.

(nb, if you are awaiting your copy of PHANTOMS, and it is #8, you should be aware that your particular copy was packed in the haunted room of the Grove Park Inn. Lucky boy (. . . though it wasn't posted until I returned home.))

Yes, the room is really haunted. I will, however, tell my varied stories of hauntings and haunted places I have visited only face-to-face.

Got it.

Amazing . . . even by Ipswitch and WA standards.

Just arrived.

What a stunning piece of work. This is so "real" looking and feeling that one is compelled to sit and read it from cover to cover.

Thanks Prof BC and the Outlaw-Effects team!

I will write up the "Houdini Seance Room" routine that I performed at the Grove Park Inn and post it on Outlaw's PHANTOMS chat room. It was an intense half-hour show that practically worked itself and received six additional bookings from the fifteen sitters as well as an invitation to return to the Grove Park Inn over Halloween.

Hope to have it up this weekend.
