I dropped the spider monkey from the act for throwing his own "ectoplasm" at my seance guests.

Regarding NIX4, I'm in.

It's arrived; number 77 has just plummeted through my letter box. Now I just can't wait to read it.

In fear of repeating myself from 'Penny':
Well okay... I've just read the forward by Bob Cassidy, the Introduction and What They (the audience) See. Up to page 49 the Explanation and it reads nothing short of f*****g brilliant.

Anyway I can't read anymore at the moment because I'm also getting ready for a show now, so I'm savouring the rest till I get back.

Also if you want to know how the big picture finishes you will have to get it yourself. All I can say is, "this really is something special".

I have decided to submit a short review of Nix4. I don't really want to because I genuinely hope no-one else in Scotland performs this. I'm writing this review because Paul deserves the recognition for an incredible piece of work.

So what do you get for your money? Well a beautifully produced 226pp hardback book with dust cover. The book is lavishly illustrated with impeccable line drawings by the expert hand of our very own Pill Smith.

The book contains a fully detailed explanation of Paul Brook's working routine NIX4. The book is broken down into the following sections;

Forward (by Bob Cassidy no less!!)
Introduction
NIX4 (How the audience sees it)
Explanation (an overview)
Preparation
The Set Up
The Process
Subtleties (a huge section)
Full Script with Blocking
Parting Words

Paul covers every single aspect of this routine you could ever think of, absolutely everything, yes, everything, no really.

The routine itself is BRILLIANT. It has been incredibly well constructed, it has natural fluidity. The actual routine is very strong, with multiple moments of amazement and a fantastic finish that will bring the house down.

I love everything about this routine. It is a masterpiece and Paul should be very proud of his work.

Gladly, this is a limited addition because I fully intend to use this, this is a show closer.

Thank you Paul.

Sorry about the typo, that should read Phill Smith obviously.

I couldn't agree more, it's ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. Worth every penny.

Thanks Paul.

Can this be performed in languages other than English, or is it heavily English specific or dependent?

I don't see any reason that it couldn't be done in any language.

I received my copy of NIX4 in Canada this afternoon. It is highly readable and describes the effect in 201 pages. This is one effect (rather than four) and it is better proofread than some of Paul's publications.

The effect described includes some four effects which are nicely sequenced or woven together and they are said to comprise a 20 minute routine.

There are several short chapters at the end of the book dealing with some alternative approaches and/or dealing with participant management.

Although I will have to refresh my knowledge of what the equivalents of C5, A3 and A4 stationary in North America amount to, this is a valuable course on presenting a fascinating routine as well as constructing the materials required.

NIX4...happy number "69"...hahah...arrived safely in my mailbox today. I am in the states. I have yet to start reading, but a quick flip through shows that it is written and formatted in typical "Paul Brook Style"

Can't wait to get into it!
