Looking for a Review or opinions:

http://abbottmagic.com/Dark-Matter-Secrets-ABBdmsecrets.htm

"Over 80 years in the making. Abbott's Dark Matter Secrets is simply the greatest compilation of "spooky" magic effects ever assembled. The ultimate Halloween magic book, Abbott's Dark Matter Secrets has well over 100 effects (142 is our unofficial count) and includes Stage Illusions (complete with workshop plans), Side Show Illusions (again, complete with workshop plans), Parlor Effects, Escape Effects, Mentalism Effects, etc.

8.5" x 11" (21.59 x 27.94 cm) - 412 pages"

Abbott's has gotten nothing but good feedback on this book. My favorite review is a comment about it on the youtube video at
http://youtu.be/-yiVPACOWcE (I have not gotten the ok from this person to repost his comment for promotion so I am just sending you the youtube link, you can read the comment below)

Below are some feedbacks we have gotten via email (I have gotten permission to repost these from these people)

In a world where the "good stuff" is hidden in obscure pamphlets and magazines long forgotten, Dark Matter Secrets stands out as a real treasure. This book contains literally hundreds of usable pieces of magic you aren't likely to find on your own - all in one volume. The magic imps at Abbott's combed through their vaults in search of some of the best releases from their nearly 80 years in business, re-type set most of it, and put it in this beautiful volume. From close-up bizarre magic, to major stage illusions, it's all here. It's about time someone puts a QUALITY product on ink and paper for professionals and hobbyists alike. If "Halloween" and "spooky" is your thing, you are going to LOVE this book from Abbott's! --Keith Stickley of Dr. Scream's Spook Show Revival

Thanks for a wonderful compilation of great Abbott spook magic. It truly is a must for anyone interested in the history or performance of such material, and a perfect product to come out of an old black building with skeletons on the front! Hope all is well in Colon. ...Rocky Clements

Hope this helps

What a fantastic bargain this compilation of Abbott's manucrips is. And the price: $25.00? How reasonable could you get. These things are a goldmine of great stunts , acts, tricks...I think you could make a living out of almost any given one of them. Just ordered, and can't wait to dive in.

We continue to get very good feedback on the book, Greg is bringing a bunch of them to the IBM/SAM convention next week so if you are attending and are interested, stop by the Abbott booth. I would be interested in any comments or reviews.

Just take a look at the contents and you can begin to see what a trove of good stuff this is. And to think, with todays new materials and the progressions our field has taken, so many of these manuscripts and pamphlets can be rethought and morphed in many ways.

I grew up ordering and absorbing many of these manuscripts, and lusting after the ones I couldn't afford. Here they are in one large volume, an inch thick, 3 pounds and 411 pages. Physically.

And now a Download at $10? Put them on your tablet and get into them when you're bored. Congrats to Abbott's for this great offering. This was surely one of my best buys last year. And it just got better for everyone. Hot Damm!

Took advantage of the same deal last year. The book is a great resource and the freebees a bonus!
