just picked this up for under €9 on amazon, thanks for the recommendation

But he is 100 times harder to watch. Beware as well, while sankey has some fantastic stuff out there, he also has an awful lot of crap.

Just recieved my 'Expert at the Card Table' in the post. Must say i cant wait to get stuck into it.

The structure is very like that of Bobo's 'Modern Coin Magic' and Sach's 'Sleight of Hand' which is excellent. Will defo be getting further into it in few days time

Ive got this book, and about 7 or 8 others (havent counted) taking up room if anyone wants them (free). Just various magic book at different levels, none fancy or valueable, but they might be of interest to someone starting out. All/most in good clean condition. You've got to collect them asap (South Dublin) and take the whole lot.

If anyone wants them, give me a PM (don't post here so as not to clutter the thread). They'll be gone in the next recycling bin if I don't hear from anyone shortly

Edit - King Mob has Pm'd first so he's got first dibs.

Time for some shameless self promotion.

I have a magic blog (Magic Ireland). I don't tend to update it as much as I should, but at the moment I have promised myself that I will start adding stuff bi-weekly. Expect the kind of information that I post here (In fact, some of the posts are duplicates of information that I have posted here), product (and store) reviews, and just various hints and tips that might help anyone starting off along their way.

I have also decided to do a series of interviews. I will be interviewing various working pros from around the place, but mostly focusing on Irish magicians. Expect to see information on their favorite effects, any tips they might have for anyone looking to go pro, how they feel about the level of exposure (reveals) in magic these days, what their feelings are on magic orginisations (IBM, Magic Circle etc) and that kind of lark. The first one will be going live early Thursday morning (12.30) and is a very detailed session with Ruairi O'Connor, a mentalist working in Dublin who deals with alot of large commercial clients (Magners etc).

Also, I would like to use this oppertunity to thank fellow M&I groupie ??? who has decided to help me out by contributing some posts.

So check it out, let me know if there is anything you want to see there, or even if you would like to contribute something yourself!

IrishMagicNews.com

[font=Arial]IrishMagicNews is a new news, information and portal site by Irish magician Brendan Byrne. In addition to news stories of a local nature the site hosts full contact details for all magic societies in Ireland, convention information and a brief guide for visiting magicians and lecturers.

Edited by zuroph ; Snipped quite a bit here, the link is fine, but the post read too much like an advertisment.

If letting people interested in magic know about a new non for profit magic news site for Ireland is advertising then I guess I am guilty. But certainly no guiltier then some of the posts before mine.

IrishMagicNews is a labour of love for me - not a money making excersise. It is intended to help magic grow in Ireland and act as a portal site for visitors to Ireland. Instead of endless searches to get sometimes out of date contact information people thinking of coming to Ireland, or indeed peple living here but with little or no knowledge of societies, now have a one stop shop.

Also in addition I hope that people will sign up for bulletins. It is the intention that when a lecture is organised or it is convention time everyone, whether in a seociety or not knows about it.

Advertisement? Maybe
Helping out magicians? Yes
Furthering the art of magic in Ireland? I certainly hope so.

Brendan
