Some years ago, a favorite daily read of mine was something called Ye Olde Magick Blogge. It was written by a young man showing perceptions far beyond his years, I thought. The blog died an untimely death and I lost track. I recently ran across him on another forum and he has produced a beginners card magic book called The Jolly Almanac of Card Knavery. Totally free.


Here's the link to read about it and download it. I think itis very worthwhile.

Enjoy! or Not!

Another free book of interest is Magic in Mind. A compendium of theory article compiled by Josh Jay. Contributions from Derren Brown, Teller, and Juan Tamariz , John Carney, Darwin Ortiz, Tommy Wonder, Pit Hartling, Rene Lavand, Tom Stone, and nearly thirty other magic luminaries?
If you like theory (I do) this is a great free resource.

I never understood why this didn't get more play. It's quite a resource. Over 500 pages.

I agree! A wonderful set of insightful articles. I haven't gone through all of them yet, but do love to open the ebook and read a couple now and then.

Magic in Mind is great. I've been through it twice already and am about due for a third time.

Fully agree with Magic in Mind. I love Simon Aronson’s essay.

Both books downloaded. No problems found.

I used to visit the blog version of the Annotated RRTCM, which disappeared long ago. Thanks for the link.

Rich,

Smells like some security setting. If you continue to have trouble, PM me and I'll email them.
