Ray:

I looked at it, but it is a pig in a poke. No idea what the effects or possibilities are, I don't know who the creator is so there is no track record. I'm not sure if it is worth taking the plunge with eyes closed.

Plus I don't trust the copy, at the top it says there are only eighteen copies available out of the 100. At the bottom of the copy it says they only have twelve of the copies... Bizarre in a non bizarre magic sort of way.

Given that the "pre-order" is for something incredibly vague supposedly released two months ago, I suspect the best trick it accomplishes is making $67.41 disappear.

I have one and order the additional upgrade pkg (which includes extra photo's and a couple of new stories)
Mark Elsdon has done a bunch of mentalism & a few storytelling effects (lost and found & Endless journey are just a couple)
Peculiar tales are some very odd photos that stories revolve around (the telling is in the tale) they are full stories that involve the spectator to learn about the photos or notice things about them
don't know if that helps or not (I like them, but then again I myself am Peculiar)

I'd posted a second-hand take from a friend who had purchased this, but am removing it as Vlad posted a first-hand review at the same time.

I may have to pick this up if it is Mark Elsdons. The guy is a brilliant magician, mentalist and creator.

Just to further Clarify (not that I really need to in this section) but these are spooky pictures with the emphasis on the teller, you are leading them on a journey (how well part of that works will lie on your acting or tale telling) there are no Movey moves these are more up there with a twilight zone wtf feeling. But in my humble opinion treated well these will leave them talking.

Yes, these involve the ability to tell a story and engage a listener/s. They are dark in their tenor, which I like, and they are pretty easy to perform. I don't think they are 'tricks' which you will finish a show on to wow an audience, but they are little uncanny moments to drop into the right situation.

Personally, I like the tableau of a good story for presenting a magical experience, but these may not appeal to some as they might seem too simple or lacking a 'wow' factor.

Not for everyone then, but if you like Mark's other recent 'story'-type output, which I do a lot, and you fancy a little dark moment in your presentations, then these might be for you. If they're still available, that is.

Best,

mark sent out an offer to people that bought PT, if you have it already just drop him a line and ask him about it (I don't have it right in front of me, but I think it came with 2 new stories and duplicates of some of the others in case you wanted to either leave one with a spectator or do some "dirty" work on one)

They are more story journeys with magic than a magic effect (so without the picture and the story the effect doesn't really make sense)

I tried contacting full52.com (dave at full52.com) about it but no answer. Is there another reseller? I just want to check if it's still available before placing my order as the webpage counter of stock is clearly not working.
