Between the Spring of 1983 and the Spring of 2006 William Miesel and Ed Eckl collected some of the most amazing and astonishing magic secrets ever and printed them in the Precursor. Don’t miss out on this Conjuring Arts Research Center exclusive as the Precursor is offered for the first time in PDF format.
Intended from conception to be the heir of the venerable Ibidem, Miesel coaxed the most creative minds in magic to part with cherished secrets which he re-wrote and used to filled the pages of Precursor.
Miesel cleverly would accept concepts and problems along with fully fleshed out routines, and by opening up the pages of Precursor to unfinished thoughts his journal became the birthplace for a lot of important material. As you go through each issue you see names like Mike Skinner, Stewart James, Ken Krenzel, Max Maven, Ed Marlo, J.K.Hartman, Gene Maze, Lou Gallo, Jon Racherbaumer, Bill Kalush, Chris Kenner, Karl Fulves, Mel Stover and Martin Gardner just to name a very few. Quite an impressive list, and they all part with excellent material, much of which cannot be found elsewhere.
