Well, the new Zarrow books were delivered to us a few days early and all pre-orders have now been shipped. If you have not received your copy yet you should have it this week. Also note that these books will only be available exclusively from us.
If you want to pick up your copy in person you may have a chance this weekend near Boston at the Bi-Annual Yankee Gathering XII where I will have a booth. So stop by and say hello if you are one of the lucky few who is invited to attend.
Also of interest to Erdnase fans is that I just received a small quantity of the 11-Disc set of Expert At The Card Table featuring Allan Ackerman. Geno Munari really out did himself on this project — it is truly a must have.
This week’s news stories included more reviews and opinion’s about Criss Angel’s Believe show as well as his latest flings. There was also a feature about the G4G8 Convention by Ray Hyman. Also in the news are stories about Gary Kelton, Kruti Parekh, Dick Nesfield, Marc DeSouza, David Copperfield, Derek Hughes, Mike Super, Keith Barry, Eric DeCamps and much more.

Herb Zarrow has spent a lifetime of magic — exploring and creating in the art he loves. Best known, of course, for his legendary Zarrow Shuffle, one of the great, thundering moves and perhaps the only sleight to travel from the card trick to the card table. Herb is also the originator of many other sleights, subterfuges, and routines — with playing cards, coins, handkerchiefs, ropes, and rubber bands — many of which resulted from his long association with the greats of magic, men like Vernon, Miller, Carlyle, Balducci, Walton, Diaconis, and others.
For some six decades, Herb has kept the bulk of these secrets within a small, select circle. With this book, you can now join that circle.
Zarrow: A Lifetime of Magic is a cornucopia containing over one hundred and fifty of Herb’s most cherished secrets, sleights and routines, most of which appear here in print for the first time. The book, a distillation of one humble man’s journey to the essence of his art, is destined to join a short list of true classics of magic.
Written with great detail by David Ben, with more than a thousand photographs by Julie Eng, the book also includes loving commentary by Johnny Thompson, Marla Zarrow, Ron Wohl, John Mintz, and Persi Diaconis.
A lifetime of family. A lifetime of friends. A lifetime of art. A lifetime of magic.
