Hello Everyone,

My name is Tom Gagnon. Most people associate my name with illustrating magic books. However, my love is for the finer aspects of cards magic. It looks like this forum is going to be a lot of fun. Please check out my new approach to executing a ribbon spread multiple shift at


Best regards,

Hi Tom! Good to see you are here. I have both of your books (Avant-Cards and Too Hot for the Devil) and tried some moves but I couldn't do them. I'm going to have to keep trying them... LOL

Welcome.

It's kind of funny, because of my screen name of Tom G I would tend to get some emails or PM's intended for Mr. Gagnon.  We wrote back and forth and found we even like the same, somewhat obscure pie.

Tom's take on card and coin magic is very interesting and definitely worth checking out.

By the way, that "subterranean multiple shift bottom variant" is absolutely incredible!
There's nothing to see!

Hi Rudy,

Thanks for the compliment. It is certainly a new concept in ribbon spread work.

Best regards,

Hi Tom,

Dave here. We used to chat many years ago on an IRC channel called #Magicians. 

We also met at the 1997 Abbott's Close-up convention, I remember you showing me a breather crimp.

Nice to see you here.

Not sure about being the first lecturer H - but possibly the 'first man to tread the boards' - Percy Abbott? 1934?

2nd guess is a certain New York Geeza.........so close to my heart. [wink]

My best bud, Joe Riding of Lancashire England, adored attending this convention.

I remember very well. It was the one and only Harry Lorayne and I was lucky enough to have been there. Harry lectured for six hours or more, and what a lecture it was.

Yup, 1980, Harry Lorayne.


@Tom,
1997 was the first and last time I got to enjoy Abbott's. I was working a contract in MI for a few weeks before the con back then at DC Cook Nuclear plant.

If I remember correctly, Milt Kort was attending the convention as an honored guest, he didn't lecture.
(I got him to autograph my worn-out copy of Bobo's)

I also seem to think I met Steve Beam there, time certainly does play tricks on us.

Impressive control, Tom!  I had to watch it a few times because it fooled me so badly.
