Hallo good morning to all, my name is alfonso and write for Roma, Italy
You can find me in facebook as Alfonso Bartolacci, mystery performer
I would like to buy the prof BC Phasmology book, but unfortunetely now is sold out all around the word
Is there here on magic cafè someone that want to sell his copy ?
May be that someone buyed the book and find that it does not fit his style o his kind of routine, some time happens in life, I think some times we buy a book and then find that the routines or the concept inside do not match our style of performance
So if some one want to sell the book can contact me whit a private message
Tks so much to all

Soon? I am afraid not (have not even begun to sketch it out!) But I am certainly intending to write a follow-up with more routines, more handlings, more ideas for props, and (you cannot escape it) more essays on performance, script and character development, rehearsal notes, and the business side of mystery performing . . . okay, well, there, I guess I have *begun* to sketch it out now.

Once this 'Renaissance year' of 2016 settles down and I can get off the lecture/seminar circuit, I have Faerie Shillings, Doppelgangers, and a Realm-of-Faerie how-to book to put into motion. I do tend to multi-task, so a second Phasmology book could end up being somewhere in that mix over 2017/18, but I cannot make any promises. Will try!

Thanks for asking,
BC

While it may go out of print at some point, it is not a limited release. Also, it is not an effect but rather a discussion of bizarre philosophy and effects.

Second printing on the way. Please stand by!

I bought this when it first came out. This is my review: 1st impression... the book is laid out in "magazine format"; i.e. double columns of type on each page. This is typically done to create a larger page count. It's not done for ease of reading. Magazine style layout makes margins in the middle in addition to the sides. Yuck! is my feeling. The content: the bulk of the book are the instructional p.d.f.s of various Prof. B.C. products. These instructions (which make up the bulk of this slim book) are useless if you don't own the physical artifact itself. And if you do own the prop? You already have the instructions that are the bulk of the book. Otherwise the book functions as an ad to buy product. So... what is new? There are some essays that illuminate B.C.'s approach to Bizarre. These are fun to read. They are thought provoking. Especially if you disagree with some of his dogma. The essays make you think. A glorious thing to do! On their own, the original essays to the book could have been published as a short pamphlet... too bad they weren't. It would have been a good contribution. As it is... in my own considered opinion, this book offers low value for the price. I expected so much more. I was left disappointed.

I was hoping for a volume two as opposed to a second printing. I guess the Prof does have a day job that interferes with his offerings to the bizarre community. The lack of books on the secondary market speaks to its revalence and value. It's a beautiful book. I have enjoyed my copy immensely and recommend it. I have received no compensation or special treatment for my opinion. I consider Prof BC a friend and he has given his time and opinions freely to me over the years.

I would agree with the observation that approximately a third of the book is presentations. This doesn't strike me as unusual, given that most magic books I own are (if not more than a third). I personally own none of the effects listed in the book, so found reading the presentations and thinking behind them to be of good illustrative help in constructing my own presentations.

I have found the book to be an exquisite example of the thinking that goes into conceiving, routining, and performing pieces that quite-likely captivate the audience. Even though there is ample information that is not specific to the presentations he shares, I found the information to help provide a context around the life of Prof. BC, which I did appreciate. However, the pieces that he tipped his thinking around contains much food for thought for anyone who is a serious student of the art. While the price tag is steep - and I am one without significant disposable income - I found it to be an investment in knowledge such that I do consider it quite the bargain.
