Along with Ed Marlo, Dai Vernon and Karl Fulves, Canadian Stewart
James was one of the most prolific magic inventors of magic in the
twentieth century. He created over one thousand tricks, which saw print
in two mammoth publications spanning over 2,700 pages.
We're here to tell you that unless you're a complete magic nut, don't buy those publications. I am an incredibly
passionate magic reader and still haven't managed to even get half way
through these weighty tomes. So, instead of dropping a few hundred
dollars to buy books that you'll never swallow, we suggest that you
pick up this book; The Essential Stewart James, which covers 50 of
James' best tricks.
Allan Slaight, co-editor of Stewart James In
Print and author of "The James File" worked with a panel of James fans
(including Max Maven, Michael Weber, Roy Walton, Peter Duffie and more)
to choose their fifty favorite Stewart James tricks. Those who know
Stewart James' work agree that they picked out the real treasures.
The Essential Stewart James serves as a primer to
the brilliance of the man, his methods and his magic and all in a form
that you'll be able to easily swallow.
