Thank you RayJ.  I'd already looked there and it seems they too are out of stock.  That retailer has an unorthodox system.  They don't tell you something is out of stock, rather they indicate the number of items they have at the ready, and if the number is 0, well, they don't have it. Still, I appreciate you taking the time to try and find one.

They don't publish a comprehensive list of their books but you might try U.S. Toy in Leawood, KS. They have more books than I've ever seen in a brick-and-mortar shop. Call them and ask for the magic department.

1-800-832-0224

Edit: when I went to get their phone number it appears they've moved to Overland Park, KS. They still feature a magic dept.

Just a wild idea... 

Do you read Spanish? If so, you can try getting the original Spanish version of the book you are looking for (in fact, there are 2 books)...

https://www.librosdemagia.com/catalogo/ver/161-mas-magia-pensada-tapa-dura-dvd.html

If not, let me see...

And the page does not say "out of stock"... so I hope they have it... and there is another book by him...

I hope you are lucky enough to get it/them here...

Thank you Luigimar and RayJ.  I'll follow up those leads.

Also Luigimar, I don't read Spanish but have seriously considered taking it up bc of GKAPS, which I think is Dani DaOrtiz's company, or at the very least, he's their primary product.

Too bad Daytona Magic doesn't have it and they don't say so on their page... I can't think of another place they could have it... I'll check...

I'm pretty sure it would be out of stock (new) at any shop.

Used copies have sold a couple times on ebay recently. I'd think a little patience and persistence in checking there every few days ought to do the trick.

Thx for helping out Luigimar and Chris W.  I don't have a problem with a used copy, and was initially hoping someone here had a double copy or had gotten what they wanted and perhaps were ready to sell.  A couple of the sites mentioned had advertised new copies and didn't take the links down or update them with an out of stock tag.

In any case, it's not the end of the world and hopefully one will pop up soon.  If not, there's plenty of other material out there.

Sorry if things didn't work out for you Comte... I do have the 2 books but in Spanish (and no, they are not for sale) so maybe someone might sell you their copy in English. Or maybe they will reprint the book in the future...

Another resource for used books:  I haven't purchased recently but search Byron Walker Magic Books in San Leandro, CA.  His website is usually fairly sparse, but he takes calls and will let you know if he has something you are looking for in stock.  I've done it in the past.  Always been super nice to me on the phone and ships fast when you order something...at least in my experience.

Snagged one on Ebay.   Probably paid a little more than I should, but hopefully it helped someone during these tough times.   Thanks for the suggestions.
