Hi,

Maybe you try to look up on page 269, that page has some relation to the previous effect.

Best,

Hi

On checking the book, yes, there is text missing from the end of page 181. Enquire with the publisher (MacMillan) - he might issue an errata sheet.

There are a LOAD of mistakes in this book - NONE are problematic and can quickly be worked out.

Who on earth proof-read it?

But apart from that - THE best book I've ever bought!

I think that comparisons between Dave and Paul Harris are unfair - on Dave. He was creating what are nowadays called "off the wall" magic before Harris was an itching in his father's pants.

Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of Mr Harris' work and perform a lot of it on a regular basis, but I feel that this should be noted.

Best wishes

Hi,

Yeah! The effects are great and many of the effects are my favourites.

Especially the section where packet tricks and some special cards required in that section I would say there are really strong and enjoy to perform. Smile

Traveller is a fantastic tpacket trick. I had originally overlooked the packet trick part of the book. There are a few gems in the first part of the book, but most of these packet tricks are very good. I don't really like packet tricks, but some of these are too good not to do.

Four years down the line, I would just like to add my tuppence..

On a recommendation from the staff at International Magic (some bias there perhaps), I bought this book. I found that many of the effects were clever but wouldn't fit into with personal style. So in a few cases, I have adapted the effects (primarily the patter) with great success.

'The Traveller' is easily my favourite effect from the book. But I do not do the trick using the Ace of Spades. I usually use a card selected [forced] from the deck. This way, the transposition seems all the more impossible. It also makes the routine seem less like a packet trick.

I have also performed this at my local magic society and because I was performing for a small group, I wanted to weave a story into my routine. So I decided to use the Joker as the 'hero' of the tale.

I've been toying with handling to reverse the transposition - perhaps using a 'WOW' gimmick - but this might be stretching the effect too far(?).

Has anyone else toyed with this trick and, if so, what ideas have you come up with?
