My new book was supposed to arrive on Wednesday… it hopefully gets here next week. Will add it to the website when it does.
As a substitute I am offering you a very hard to find book. Goebel: The Man With The Magical Mind. After its release in 2010 many of the copies were destroyed in a flood. A few cases survived and thanx to Ted Bogusta I can offer them to you at the original price. It is full of rare photos and a great foreword by Jim Steinmeyer.
In 2010, after the book came out there was a very nice article in the Baltimore Sun about George Goebel and the book. I think you will like it and get a good idea about what you can expect from the book. Read it: HERE
►Goebel: The Man With The Magical Mind:
In the 1970’s and 1980’s George Goebel presented a large-scale illusion show called the Goebel Magical Revue. With a cast and staff of 35, he astonished lay audiences and received accolades from fellow magicians. Those shows influenced both Jim Steinmeyer and Lance Burton, each of whom contributed to this book.
Goebel tells how he gained experience working with Milbourne Christopher on the Jackie Gleason and Garry Moore shows.
You will learn about the history of the Baltimore magic scene, and a detailed account of building and presenting a full evening magic show that included a 10-member dance ensemble under the leadership of a former Radio City Music Hall Rockette.

►BACK IN STOCK
Susi Lewis agreed to give me one more case of Martin’s great book. If you missed out before, you can get one now.
Martin Lewis created many routines that are regularly used by the most popular magicians and mentalists.
His creative approach to entertaining magic is applied to close-up, parlor, and stage magic with a special interest in practical stand-up magic.
This legacy book contains detailed explanations to more than 50 of his best routines.

Stay happy, Meir
PS: Looks like I might have a new coin routine released before the end of the year.
“I think that surprise was an important part of the formula. Because of that I’ve always associated Goebel with the genuine surprise that magic can provide for an audience, a refreshing feeling of mystification under the control of a masterful stranger.”
…Jim Steinmeyer (Goebel, 2010)
