A Very Personal Message from Kenton Knepper

First of all, I want to THANK YOU for supporting all of my work over the decades. I have created and shared a large amount of original material. But now that's about to stop. More about that in a moment.

Second, I want you to know that the wonderwizards.com website will continue. It simply will not have the majority of the material I have created on it anymore.

Limited editions bring in more money. Over saturating a market with your material is unwise. Good tactic, get a lot out there, build up a name for yourself, then disappear and create false scarcity.

Was getting the feeling they are creating a new site and the material will still be available, possibly in a different form though?

The message is very cryptic, isn't it? A form of double speak. It won't be available - but it will! - just not all of it! - in a certain kind of package! - there still will be stuff! - most of it will be gone though! - but we'll still have plenty available for you!

Kenton Knepper, in his announcement, assures us, "A handful of my classic works will remain on the website as they are the foundations of current mentalism and magic." To the extent that his (unnamed in the announcement) "classic works" are in fact that foundational, I have been clueless most of the six years I have been into Mentalism.

Three of Kenton Knepper's works are listed by Bob Cassidy in his "Thirty-Nine Steps to Mentalism."

Yep. And here's what I wrote:
Quote:

Kenton Knepper:

Wonder Words
Completely Cold
Miracles of Suggestion

Different, original, powerful, mind-expanding, seminal, important, essential, Kenton occasionally comes under fire for some of his radical approaches to our art. His work, though, is the most important development in mentalism of the last decade. This is the stuff that turns skeptics into believers.

In response to Bob and other friends, I did not mean to suggest that Knepper had published nothing of worth. You may see what I mean when I take the liberty to capitalize two words in Kenton's announcement: "A handful of my classic works will remain on the website as they are THE foundations of current mentalism AND magic."

A number of people, including Cassidy, have published something foundational or seminally important in Mentalism, without claiming (or implying) they are THE foundations of current mentalism AND magic. While some hyperbole helps make a point, other hyperbole is indulgent and over the top.

To restate my original confession: If Kenton's work is THAT foundational, that reality has so far bypassed me in toto. I am still willing to be shown, and still willing to do some reading.
