I came home after four days of being away and The Horror, The Horror!
Whole shelves of my magic items were completely empty.
“Stop, thief!” I cried. “Someone’s stolen my very best magic books, DVDs and tricks.”
Just then my wife appeared. “Jack, stop having a cow. Everything’s all right. You’re having a magic contest, right?”
“Uh, yes,” I said confused.
“Well, I know how much you respect the readers of your blog, so I put the best stuff aside for your contest.”
“But, but, but…” I stuttered. “That’s my favorite…best…”
“No complaining. I’ve got your prize grab bag set up for you. And who knows there may be even more to come. Now tell everyone to enter soon, timeliness counts and the contest is ending soon. And make sure you tell them that they can find out all the details here:
Anyone can enter. See, I’ve done you a great favor.”
I nodded half giddy, as I went through the list. Bye, bye, favorite magic items, it’s been good to know ye.
The contest magic prize grab bag includes:
Milo & Roger
The Vernon Touch
The Collected Almanac
John Luka’s L.I.N.T

whew! BTW I’ve been hearing about Derren Brown, what are your impressions?
He’s terrific. I saw him last time he was in New York and he was excellent.
His show is on Broadway now…
Yes, the show on Broadway is the same show I saw in a smaller venue a few years ago. He’s a very entertaining guy and fooled the pants off of me. He does a lot of mindeading effects in an original way.
