I just met with Steve Beam and he says that he will be sending Volume 2 of the Trapdoor to the printers sometime next month. Very excited. He showed me a trick that is being added via the Addendum entitled CASTING CALL. This is a card trick for a small to medium sized group of people. You hand the deck to a spectator and he shuffles it any way he desires. Totally fair. The deck is passed around from 2 to 14 spectators. Each takes the deck and themselves remove ANY card that appeals to them. All the chosen cards are collected, those collected cards can then be shuffled by a spectator and he can then stick those cards into the center of the deck. Deck is again shuffled. Performer deals out 7 rows in a random and haphazard order so that the 52 cards are all face up. Each spectator who is thinking of a card is given a poker chip which he lays down alongside the row that his card is in. Performer now reveals exact card each and every spectator is thinking of and never asks a single question. When Steve showed this to me, I was speechless and had nary a clue as to how it was possible. This is the best party trick that I have ever seen. Can be a borrowed deck, nothing added or taken away. Can be done impromptu if someone hands you a deck of cards. Doesn't even need to be a full deck.

My wallet is getting thinner and thinner with so many great books coming out this year.
