A Brief Update
It has been a while since our last blog entry as we have been tied up with a variety of projects – the last issue of Magicol, producing the Masters of Magic series for Luminato (See the August issue of MAGIC), organizing the next issue of Magicoland, of course, planning the the next MCW.
We will be releasing information on the 42nd MCW shortly so that you can book your room and registration well in advance. We had an excellent turn out this year, and hope to build on that success.
We are also pleased announce anotherspecial offer for MCA members. Magicana is publishing A Grand Exposé, a much sought-after title for anyone interested in advantage play. Published originally in 1860, experts believe there are less than twenty known copies still in existence. Noted gambling authority, Jason England, is only aware of perhaps seven copies.
You can learn more about the book, view its table of contents, and read an excerpt here. The new Magicana edition of this work is limited to 500 copies, 100 of which have already been accounted for. So, 400 copies are available for sale.
The book will retail for $45 USD, plus shipping and handling. We are offering MCA members the opportunity to pre-order the book, prior to September 1, 2010, or while quantities last, for only $40.00 postpaid in the United States and Canada, and $50.00 postpaid internationally. (Canadian residents are subject to HST.)
The book is at the printers now, and will be available for shipping by September 1.
As you will read in my Present Day Publisher’s Preface, I found the book simply enchanting. I hope you will, too.
