I was just curious, what are some of your out of print books that you absolutely cherish. As well, what are some that you wish you had. For me, I love my Simply Harkey and Chris Kenner's Totally out of control.

Thanks

We kinda have a thread going about this subject. If you have something to add to it, pull it up. I was trying to get a good list going. The thread is titled, "essential out-of-print books".

I never really understand why books go out of print. There is clearly a demand for some of them, and it wouldn't be very hard for the authors to find that out.

After a bit of research and maybe a "sign up" sheet, even if e.g. "Cards as Weapons" had a 500 copy reprint, I'm sure every one would get sold... I'm sure if a pre-order system was created, you could guarantee everyone would go.

I'm still searching for a copy of "Star Quality" Smile

I was wondering if any of you would include Paul Curry's Worlds Beyond under this topic. I want to check if it is worth the time and money that a may spend trying to add this book to my library. And, I know it's out of print, but is it rare.

Thanks

I don't know how "rare" it might be, but there's currently a copy available on eBay.

The "Encyclopedia Of Spongeball Magic" which I bought off Ebay.I would love to have "The Complete Works Of Derek Dingle". Kenner's Totally Losing Control" would also be on that list. Smile

Cameron,

Good choices!!

Aren't those two Daryl books wonderful? My favorite Daryl card routine is "Holding On" in the Puerto Rican Gambler book.
