In this work, we find for the first time the popular Out-to-lunch principle (see for example Anagramation by Jim Krenz) being published.
The better one becomes acquainted with magic, the more one realizes that the word "novelty" must be used with care. That is, if one wishes to be strictly veracious. Nevertheless, I believe the reader will find that the various offerings in this book possess some element of newness - either in the effects themselves or the methods outlined.
It will be noted that I have not included items that are only accessories or suggestions (with which another book could doubtless be filled), but instead, I have devoted the available space to the description of effects that are complete in detail. This, I think, is the most satisfactory course, since the book is intended for the reader who is already familiar with magical principles and devices.
