I came across one of Max's pamphlets from the LISP series and would love to read the others.

I found a link from 7 years ago where Max appears to be open to the possibility of reprinting the whole series.

Could anyone share an overview of the subject matter of each book?

For example, DOTH focuses on the Gilbreath Principle. What about the others?

After reviewing this topic...

...the above books seem unlikely. But I would certainly love to see:

The Considered Phil Goldstein
The Considered Max Maven

I'm sure if Max sees a reason to do this outside of monetary gain, he will. He tends to speak only when he feels that he has something important to say.

Just confirmed via Dennis Behr's 'Conjuring Archive' website that there is a 7th pamphlet in this series.

http://www.conjuringarchive.com/show.php......ht=31586

but I spelled it incorrectly above. It is spelled

Thequal (copyright 1984)

It was the 2nd pamplet published in the series.

Since Max recently filmed a new video series (hopefully coming out later this year) I'm hoping he could be persuaded to release this as a compilation.

If you read french, "TH serie 1" has been published in France not long ago. It includes a translation of : THUNDAY, THEQUAL, AMPERTHAND, DOTH and FIFTH.
As the name suggest, it should not be the last book of the serie.

I've been meaning to learn French. Smile
This got me thinking about books that are only available in other languages. I can read Spanish, but I mostly read books in English because they're easily accessible around here. I'll have to look into this!

That's hilarious.

Have you ever actually met a magician?

Just buy the originals. People say they want them, but what people mean is they want them CHEAP. They are out there to buy; I would sell mine.
Someone was trying to sell his on here and was having a hard time. Ebay has many of them often. Figure out what you want to pay and ask in the buy/sell part of the forum.

Everyone knows the Color Series. In my opinion, Maven's Lisp Series is by far his best released work. The b**ary pieces are sublime and the alphabet flash cards are ingenious.

Best,

Not true for me. Smile

I've been scouring the internet for years. I check ebay almost daily.

So far I've been able to acquire:
Thequal
Amperthand
Doth
Thavant
Thabatical

But I've never seen Thunday or Fifth ever listed anywhere.

I'd love to see a PRISM-like version of LISP because a) It would be nice to have it all in one book, and b) I can't find Fifth, or Thunday.

If anyone is willing to part with either of those please PM me.

Thanks!
P.S. I'm also looking for Violet and Yellow books of mentalism too. I own PRISM, but I also own Blue, Green, and Red.
