Pete Biro
Son of Greater Magic 1.5 by Pete Biro

Original ideas across the spectrum for magicians.

A collection of magical ideas, most of which have been tested on genuine living audiences. Pete Biro has been performing and lecturing, as well as dropping juggling props here and abroad since 1966 - plus a bunch of time in the early 50's. "Most original tricks and ideas" he says, "come from having a creative memory!"
