2019 Eugene Burger Legacy Award-Winner, Ben Blau, follows-up his best-selling book, Asymptotes, with Truth Fables. Ben delivers another outstanding collection of effects from his own performing repertoire. At five hundred pages, with 18 mentalism routines using a deck of cards, there is plenty of gold to be mined.
Anthony Vinson Reviews it here: https://www.themagiciansforum.com/post/ben-blaus-truth-fables-10092757 Forum member, Ben Blau’s name is synonymous with superb, original thinking. He has created a comprehensive labor of love full of tried and true miracles for the working magician, as well as the enthusiast. Many here know what a tremendous amount of sweat and tears go into a project of this size. Unfortunately, a person called Don Fickles has launched a one-man troll attack on various retail sites with spurious claims of unoriginality and poor crediting. Fickles’ campaign stems from a conversation he had with Ben unrelated to magic. He announced he would be flaming Ben’s book based on their difference of opinion. I wanted to alert anyone with an interest in Ben’s work should not be fooled by this scheme.
