This volume, Volume 10, will be the last issue of Triplets. It will include Magic News including some new contacts and various pieces of magic news. Following this will be many "Thank you's" to all the people who helped me over the years.
The next essay will be a retrospective of the theories that have guided my movements of minimalism and streamlining. These go back to the 60's and 70's when every trick in every magazine ended with "lap the extra item", to end. Many other trends began with ideas that were ahead of their time. While there have been great thinkers along the way, my magic has always been aimed at the hobbyist who tries to do complicated routines that are too hard for their level. I'm not the only one to recommend that "less is more" when it comes to magic, but this theme has always been a part of my magic.
Following this is my conclusion of my look at Edward Gallaway for his work on the book Jack Pots and others. I will also expose the making of the portrait of Gallaway, which has attracted some attention in some circles.
