You bet! I certainly will. The name of the book will be "Final Curtain."

Here is a preview -- there is a new version of George Kirkendall's "Blue Room" illusion, as well as an amplified version of "Aunt Elisa." I saw Borodin perform both of these.

Well Bill,

I can’t wait! Do you want me to take those photos myself?

The photos are done -- they are just in Germany in preparation to go into the German edition of the book. Once the publisher is through with them, I will have them on a disc. I don't have the props over here anyway. Thanks for the offer, though!

In reference to the round nest of boxes, I purchased one recently from eBay that is almost identical to the photo in the book. It is actually a nest of ten boxes, but to accommodate the coin, the inner three or four have to be left out. See photo here:

With the help of a well-known and very helpful manufacturer/dealer I was also able to locate a Watch Box, the item that Borodin uses to vanish the coin. It is a beautiful item.

I have been working on a routine similar to "Saladin the Thief", and hope to perform it soon.

Last night, I e-mailed a copy of this thread to Ulf Bolling - Borodin, the author of Sheherazade. All I can say is that he was very moved by your responses to his work.

Thanks very much. You made his day!

Bill,

I’m glad to hear that. He has been “making my day” since I got the book!

I've said this to Bill personally, but I'll say it here for all to see...this is one of the finest books on Bizarre and Theatrical magic in our art. Anyone who plans to do magic of this type needs this book.

Rick

And, as an addendum to my last post, Bill Palmer is a true gentleman and scholar in our art. I've been fortunate to know this man for about 2 years now and we should all strive to be the kind of man (not just performer) that Bill is.

Bill has done a wonderful job, and a great service to English speaking magicians, translating some of the finest books ever produced in magic: Ted Lesley's Paramiracles, Punx's Once Upon a Time, and now this (Sheherazade).

I thinking of ordering this book this week. (Can't wait till payday and I hope there are still a few copies left) Is there a reveiw for it anywhere on the internet that would list some more of the effects other than that mentioned here?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I just got the book today and although I cannot honestly comment on the book until I have had the time to actually sit down and read it I can say that so far this book is amazing. In fact I almost walked into traffic today because I had to take a peek. If that had of happened you guys would have had some material to work with, sorry to dissapoint.


Bill I just wanted to say that owning this book is a privilege and I thank you and Mr. Borodin for producing this.

Thanks

Thank you for your kind words, Caspar. Please, don't walk into the traffic. We want all of our purchasers to be alive so they can purchase the next book, too!

If you are interested in the Sheherazade props, there is a Round Nest of Boxes for sale now on eBay. Other than being only four boxes (instead of seven), it looks identical to the one used for Saladin, the Thief.

It is item #2237164374.

I am very interested in finding or building these props. In fact I was looking at a nest of bags which gave me an idea to use small leather bags. Does anyone know of anywhere that I can go to either have these mades or information so that I can construct these myself?

Another object of interest is the the "Essential Items" for the casket from Sheherazade's Ring. Any help pointing me in the right direction is appreciated.

The funny thing about all of this, is that a little over a year ago my mangager and the president of the Club I work for got me into Toastmaster's and they even paid for it. I am sure that this will come in handy.

This particular school of magic has definitely touched a chord with me. I can't help myself to look at objects and to start thinking of a story behind it. This book has given me a few ideas and I am grateful to all of you that have brought it to my attention.

Caspar,

I share your feelings for the book. Borodin’s work is incredibly inspiring.

If you look around in antique shops you might find mostly of the objects described in the book, but, Most important, you will find lots of possibilities for stories in other objects.

Regarding the “Special Item” to put the ring in, I saw it a couple of months ago in a costume and magic shop here in NY. PM me if you want the details.

Caspar,
I've seen the Mirage disc at magic shops in the past. In fact, there is a local costume shop that has one of those for sale. I'm not sure what it's called, but a simple search on the net should prove sufficient.

I received my copy yesterday. Wow. This book has something for everyone. Strong mentalism, great stories and some cool special effects.

I'm really happy I managed to get a copy. It is already one of my all time favourite books.

Today I walked into a shop that sells african artifacts and artwork. I go there now and then to get stuff, but today some rings they had there got my attention. The rings are made of bronze and all of them represents a mask, the same mask.

I ask the guy about the ring’s meaning and he told me the rings where passports... The Ashanti people wear the rings as a way to make clear to everyone that they belong to this specific tribe.

I find the idea of a ring as a passport very suggestive. Not only because it define who you are or where you come from, but because it opens doors, at least metaphorically...

I’m posting this here because inmediatly I thought on Borodin and the first story on his book: “The Ring of Sheherazade”. That ring in the story does precisely that: it opens a door for a world of fantasy, like a passport.

So, today I didn’t get anything at the store, only a story, and I wanted to share it here...
