I ordered this new book from Mr. Bannon's website one day and received it the next. Now that's service. Maybe because we both live in the same state.

Anyway, it's not a huge book like that last two, but it contains 10 tricks that will make you smile. 

Some favorites are Chop Shop, which is along the fractal line, short and colorful and fun.

Stealth Assembly---A John Carey version of a Bannon assembly, also short and magical. It's over before you can say "four aces."

Plot Twist---Twisting the Aces in an Asheresque manner.

Blues Alley Jokers--Just the title is cool enough. If sandwiches are your thing...

There's a card control, and ace production and lots more to have fun with. 

It's John Bannon having fun.

And only $25.00

I ordered as soon as I received his email, but demand for the first printing exceeded his expectations (sold out immediately). He just received a second print run, and I should be receiving my copy tomorrow (or Friday).

Trust in Bannon. His thinking is always worthy of your attention.

If it's a Bannon book, I'm buying. My copy arrived last Friday, so I was able to digest it over the weekend. I have already adopted his handling of Vernon's Twisting the Aces - fairly standard handling, nice story line, and a much better ending than what I've been doing for years. Chop Shop looks interesting and fun to perform so I will probably give it a go.

For Chop Shop  you do need to accumulate the cards, but only seven. And, as he says, it's only Elmsley counts

Yes, Big Fat Bluff Aces is awesome, but it did appear Bullet Party and High Caliber.

Michaelblue - thanks for the heads-up on this book! I wasn't aware of it. Are the other 8 items in the book new? (i.e. Big Fat Bluff Aces and A Fred by Any Other Name)
