A friend of mine who also performs magic and mentalism was browsing a website where people post covers of well-known books that have been altered for satirical purposes. He happened across this one, and I thought you all might get a kick out of it [rofl]

Good Find as Shakespeare might have said.This cover is actually the Frank Garcia & George Schindler "Magic With Cards" that I referred elsewhere on a thread that dare not be named.

I had the original way back when and lent it somebody who never returned it and denied ever borrowing it. This happened more than once (different people different books) and is why I no longer lend books.

I bought a copy in a local remaindered book shop about 20 years ago. It has the Garcia/Schindler copyright notice, but sports a different and less interesting cover. It's a reprint from Barnes & Noble.

Same stuff, worth its weight.

BTW, on the subject of spoofs and/or parodies, there was a magazine that came out several years ago that was loaded with gags.  Was it based on Magic Magazine?  I can sort of picture the cover but I'm not sure.  Does anyone have a copy that they could post a picture of?

You could be thinking of Wenii or Majoke, Ray.

Forgive the self-promo, but for spoof or parody, there's this one, which got a good review in last April's Genii:

Thanks for being gracious about it. As for the "hard-core" side, well, there's this bit for your next trip to the coffee shop:

Some like their coffee with a creamer, some with a screamer.  Organic magic is powerful stuff!

This looks very amusing. For anyone interested, there's some info here and a small excerpt available via "Peek Inside" here. Added it to my ever-expanding wish list!

Yes, pretty sure this was based on Magic magazine. I had this at one time but don't know what happened to it, I probably gave it away. I recall Daryll came under heavy fire.

I think there has been two satire magazines based on Annemann's Jinx. Think there was one based on Abracadabra magazine at one time.

Magic Even You can Do is hilarious, and weird. Here is what I posted on Amazon:

Very funny, weird and strange in a good way, but incredibly funny, laugh out loud, a complete diversion from the seriousness of the day.
