Denny Haney: Collected Wisdom By Scott Alexander

Denny Haney: Collected Wisdom By Scott Alexander 1

Let me preface this review with a bit of backstory.

In the spring of 2012, while I was editor of M-U-M, I asked Scott Alexander to write a cover story on Denny Haney, who at that time was best known as the owner and proprietor of the Denny & Lee Magic Studio in Baltimore, Maryland. I felt it was important magicians understood Denny was much more than a magic dealer. Scott took the assignment, and the cover story appeared in the August 2012 issue.

The Long Goodbye - Latta on Coins Review

The Long Goodbye - Latta on Coins Review 0

Just about everyone who gets interested in close-up magic starts with two basic props: cards and coins. This makes sense, because cards and coins are relatively inexpensive objects (although not as inexpensive as when I was a kid), they are familiar, common objects (although perhaps not as familiar as in the days when card games were a family activity and silver dollars and half dollars were still being used in everyday transactions), and there are a large number of books and magazines (and now videos) devoted to card magic and coin magic.

REVIEW BY MICHAEL CLOSE

Denis Behr is a talented German magician who has presented several fabulous gifts to the magic world. The first gifts are his enormously useful websites, conjuringarchive.com and conjuringcredits.com. I made extensive use of both sites while doing research for my new ebook, Thriving on a Riff. They saved me many trips up and down three flights of stairs to check a source in my library.
