The creation and solution of magic squares has certainly escalated over the last several years. But, I hasten to add, for me and possibly many others, it was Harry Lorayne's books and tapes that piqued my interest not only in magic squares but in the broader area of mathematical magic. I am forever indebted to him for introducing me to this form of entertainment.

I have today released a new magic square method: "Birthday Magic Square" https://www.lybrary.com/birthdaymagicsquarep923360.html There is zero math and the effect turns out to be stronger for spectators. This has become my favorite impromptu magic square effect. People are loving it.

Thanks Chris! It was really a refreshing booklet! I can really recommend it!
The good thing about the new generations born after 2002 is that if you split their birthdays in four pieces (example 2008may31), you will get 31, 5, 20, 8 and no number will stand out as suprisingly high as the case is where people is born 19501999.

Gus, thanks. I am very happy you liked my recent publication. With my method all numbers cluster around the numbers that have been entered by the spectator. And on top you have a bit of flexibility to shape in which direction they will lean.

It's not enough to just read Jim Solberg's books once. I'm constantly finding new ideas and suggestions because my knowledge and point of view are also changing. For example, I just found an excellent idea to force a magic sum in Jim's new book.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge!

The Melencolia update is a big deal, folks. HCS is correct in saying it is the first workable solution for the 6x6 magic square of consecutive numbers for mathemagicians. For those who do not know, the 6x6 case is so unique that it needs special handling. Up until now, the published methods were too awkward to use in a live performance, even though the size is within reason. Larger sizes have workable methods, but would take too long for most audiences. The point is, this is a breakthrough development. Bravo, hcs!

Thank you very much for your kind words! I appreciate that very much. But also your three books are an invaluable source! I read them again and again to get inspirations.
