Hi guys,
Someone once wrote about magicians 'protecting an empty safe'. It's an interesting term but I can't remember who wrote it and where. Can anyone help?
Many thanks.

Hey it's me again. Excited? I'll bet you are!!!
Ain't life funny. Just as I posted this I realised it was Jim Steinmeyer in 'Hiding The Elephant'. I'm not a stooge promoting his work, honest.
PM me sometime, just to "hi". All of you.
Bob Burns is the creator of The Swan.

The quote originally comes from Steinmeyer's Art & Artifice. He essentially quotes himeslf in Hiding the Elephant.
