Lebanon Circle is proud to announce that Prof BC will release an all-new book effect later this year entitled Ring:

A dreadful plague in London was,
In the year sixty-five,
Which swept an hundred thousand souls
Away, yet I alive.

A word chosen on a (truly) freely selected page moves (changes location), disappears, and reappears in an 'impossible (actually, unexpected) location' in a startling and creepy, multiple-phase/effect presentation of London's plague year. No set up required. Immediately repeatable with different words, pages, and effects.

Yes, this will be an aged, antique book just as you would expect from Prof BC. The anticipated retail price will be similar to recent Doppelganger prices. No money will be collected until the product is ready to ship, but those who wish to reserve their copy/copies of Ring should place their name on the waiting list via the Lebanon Circle website.

As always Ring is strictly limited so secure your copy today!

I'm sure you'll all agree, it's wonderful to have Prof BC back!

Absolutely in!

This looks really exciting!

Having mentioned Prof BC inside the crypt just yesterday I take full responsibility for summoning him back to us! You’re welcome!

So glad the Prof is back! Got my name in!
Always can trust Dan and Prof BC for something fascinating and top quality, but a somewhat vague description of actual effect? Hopefully, will be a little more info as the creation and release progresses?!
Thanks,

I LOVE the premise of this effect. So unique and applicable to so many stories. We may have had to wait, but as usual, the waiting is worth it.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

From the description, my impression of the effect is: a chosen word moves about within the page(s) of a book, vanishes and appears engraved upon a ring. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, you're wrong I'm afraid otherwise you wouldn't be able to 'Immediately repeatable with different words, pages, and effects'....

I'd need to check with Prof BC but I assume the tile 'Ring' refers to the song 'Ring a Ring o' Roses', a song which described the plague, specifically the Great Plague of London.

After only being open for less than 12 hours I can report that the list is almost full, only a few spaces remain....

I believe it Dan, I responded as soon as I saw your email too. I'm pretty sure the good Prof coded it as in the song. Was great to see the prof had been covertly putting something together & interesting he chose this dark chapter for his next book, intrigued & loving it ! Nice tie in for a later lead into lun@ performances....

I'm not surprised. I remember when the Dopps books were offered. They were very quickly sold out . Demand always outpaced supply for those items (and deservedly so). I've reserved mine.

Yes. Hi. Sorry, yes, I'm back. And, yes, Ring does indeed refer to the nursery rhyme which is, as Dan suggests, a sickly coded game of Bubonic horror for the delight of little children.

We are a strange species.

Should also have mentioned that the book will be a faithful reproduction of an 1835 version of D@niel Def0e's The J0urn@l of the Pl@gue Ye@r. The Tegg edition and, before anyone asks 'how would I justify owning such a rare book', you should know that the Tegg edition, while certainly rare and collectible, sells for less than a lot of the Dopps titles in their original form. If you can own an original C0n@n D0yle or M.R. J@mes, you can own an 1835 Tegg edition of Pl@gue Ye@r.

No more specifics just yet, please. Let a girl have some mystery. Still a long way from release. Just wanted Dan to let you know that I was again in the dungeon.

My long-in-construction biography of M.R. J@mes went off to my agent this past Monday. Wish it luck. Sending a MS to one's agent is a bit like sending one's child to kindergarten--only the teacher is Typhoid Mary. Sure hope the little tyke makes it home.

Thanks for being patient with me. Been a most challenging year.

Welcome back Prof BC. You have been sorely missed. All the best for the biography.

My wife turns 50 in just over a weeks time and for her present she has requested a rather lovely gold ring which we shall go and see being made in deepest darkest Cornwall by a fantastic artisan jeweller. When she asks me what I might like for my 50th birthday in December I will reply “I would also like a ring which will be hand made by my favourite artisan”

BC, I wish you a heap of broken legs in your endeavor to get your child out of the woods. I want to read it & hopefully sell it. No need to wish you luck with the boo-test. That sells itself. The other is way more interesting to me though.

Reese--that actually sounds like a really cool effect, though! Smile

A hand wearing a ring offers a book to you and yes... you freely choose a word. And that word is found to be engraved upon the ring that was in full sight the entire time....could be repeated. You can think of a method yourself right?
