My new book will debut at Blackpool. Here is the blurb:
Volume 1, which between its softback covers has 130 photo illustrated pages, will be released on the 16th February 2018 and features full details of 9 routines from Devin's personal repertoire (see details below). Devin's ideas are always unbelievably well thought out, with every possibility analysed and the best and most convincing methods selected. He leaves nothing to chance, and creates plots that are amazingly varied, and which produce effects that are inexplicable and real reputation makers. This trilogy will offer you the strongest mentalism and magic achieved with practical, commercial methods - if you haven't seen this material before you are going to be stunned! Here are the contents of Volume 1.

Improved Tri-Epic Deluxe - this is a clever three or even four way newspaper prediction effect reminiscent of David Copperfield's Graffiti Wall, but more portable and totally suitable for a one man act.

Psychic Money Sense - designed for an intimate close up show, this experiment apparently shows that a spectator has an excellent psychic sense as he achieves an impossible outcome using three pay envelopes and some ordinary coins.

First Date Revelation - romantic mentalism! The performer correctly divines the name of a spectator's first date, and even manages to locate which one of six billets has the person's name written on it.

Puzzle Mania - a brilliant routine which is perfect for children's shows. Both the magician, and then the birthday child, manage to correctly guess which pieces have been removed from a completed tray puzzle.

Far Sight - a total reputation making fooler. Ten cards are dealt face up on a table and the mentalist, standing on the far side of the room and with his back turned, correctly reveals the name of a card genuinely freely selected by a spectator. Brilliant, unfathomable method.

Aqua Coin Flight - a practical parlour routine. Three different value marked coins are dropped by a spectator into a tall thin glass of water and one is then selected. Without sleights or difficult moves, the coin vanishes from the glass and ends up inside a sealed envelope.

Tarot Sight - as near to real mind reading as you can get! Five cards are dealt out face up from a shuffled tarot pack. Four helpers each simply think of any of the cards, and the performer manages to correctly identify which card each spectator is thinking about.

Test Conditions Ring Penetration - not everything Devin does has a mentalism flavour, and here he explains a deviously clever way to get a borrowed ring tied onto a length of rope that is already tied to both the performer's wrists.

Blindsight DIY - a major feature routine in which the performer manages to apparently prove that a spectator may have 'blindsight' - in other words that he can successfully identify colours that he can't even see. Brilliant method concept that is straightforward to do.

And so it should be. We do not like being ripped off.

What forum does the community enjoy being ripped off?

For what it is worth, I can say that I have never been ripped off by Devin. Devin has always been super helpful and honest. Not sure why advertising here relates to automatically thinking you are going to be ripped off? I understand a lot of magic is not accurately represented in the demo video but this is a book.

I would think that most present day creators' material is developed from the shoulders of giants such as Al or Marlo etc...

Of course, you're right with this RNK.

I think Devin is great and has always been very helpful and honest with me, and most of his products have been top drawer stuff.

Please tell me where I explicitly stated that Devin ripped anyone off. I’m stating that it’s harsh here because we are pedalled a lot of crap disguised as magic.

No, I don't. Did I specifically point towards you and state my post towards you? Apparently you must have a guilty conscience?

Devin has indeed taken a lot of flack here in the past, and he publicly announced he was leaving the Café for good. He obviously returned when he noticed a severe drop in sales.

So what's your point? Devin made a smart business decision in coming back here?

Your post quoted here has nothing to do with your original post of worrying about me accusing you of stating Devin ripping people off. Not sure why you are starting to tap dance now.

Stay on course.... BOB: I never stated specifically that Pegasus is accusing Devin of ripping people off.
