A Little Late, But Here
YES, THAT’S THE WAY I FEEL about this fifth cane and candle book. I expected it out about six months ago, if not a year ago, but all kinds of things happened. Other material and book projects and shows came first. bur sure enough, here we are at last with a new, big volume of magic with canes, candles and Fantasio’s Vanishing Wand!
Fantasio and I both wish to thank the contributors, who come from countries all over the globe we call Earth. Everything new we can publish with canes and candles helps those who are constantly performing chis type of magic … not only the actual magic and routines, but also the tips on handling and technique. And we especially thank Jiro Kleefeld for the fine illustrations which make the cricks clear and understandable. lt helps to have a magician artist drawing for us!
Finally, let me say that the next book, due in print in about a month after chis one, will feature Fantasia’s Color Changing Lighter and all the many things you can do with it. We’ll number it Book Six. So if you have new ideas or tricks with canes, candles, vanishing wands, or the lighter, just shoot ’em to me. There will be a seventh book’
