Dunno but if you find one, let me know please....

I read more of this book last night and it's a cracker - far too cheap at the price so snap it up before Oliver comes to his senses! :wink: !

thanks for all your welcoming messages. I feel most, well, welcomed!

mandrake, I'm glad you liked x ray coin - I've always enjoyed tricks with their own warped internal logic. I just wish I came up with more of them!

I'm also a victim of CUPS. I tell myself that I'll only by things I can justify...then I just become very good at justifying my impulse buys!

Regarding price, I did think long and hard about what to charge, but I reckoned I'd rather my books were seen as under-priced than over-priced.

Please don't! I'm not sure my wallet could take the strain!

I've just read Oliver's free e-book. If these are the ideas that he's giving away for free then his proper book must be excellent.

Go on, you know you want to buy this!! To whet the appetite even further, how about a reveal in the form of a 'tattoo' which nobody notices until you want them to? Cheeky as well as warped!

I just went to order it from LuLu and of all cards they don't accept solo/swiitch/maestro. Normally it's bloody electron places won't take.

Slightly irritated

I hope that it's OK with the mods for me to mention this but for the people having issues with Lulu, the book is available from other vendors such as magicbox.uk.com (and no, I don't work for them!)

sorry you've been having trouble, Jordan C.

as OrderD29 kindly points out, it's also available from some magic shops -in alphabetical order: Alakazam, Davenports, MagicBox, MagicMart, Merchant of Magic, Mike Danata's Magic Studio, World Magic Shop, and in America: H&R magic books and Alakazam USA.

apologies to the mods if I'm not supposed to list them.

hopefully, you'll be able to get a copy one way or another!

thanks for your interest!

Hi Reverend,

Sorry you've experienced a problem with your book. Lulu are generally good with print quality but occasionally errors slip though. If you contact them through the support section of their website (pm me if you need more specifics) they should send you a replacement copy.

In the meantime, if you pm me your email address then I'll send you my free ebook and newsletter, which and should help keep you entertained are guaranteed to be the right way round!

Hope that helps,

Oliver

Mine arrived earlier this week and looks absolutely delicious. Can't wait to have enough time to sit down and absorb it all properly!
