This is a very refreshing change for a book on card magic, instead of being filled with Card Tricks  it is full of Short Stories that just happen to use cards in their plots.  The book is broken up into 4 main sections:

  • Short Stories
  • Feature Stories
  • Other Stories
  • No Story

Content:
