Please note that there is sometimes (though not usually) up to a two week wait before I can get to your order, based on my performing schedule.

A Message from Me:
NEW ITEMS IN DEVELOPMENT
The recent brouhaha concerning the repeated pirating of my ideas has inspired me to develop a couple of new items for the loyal community. I appreciate all of you who rallied in support. The first item will be a small Post-it-note impression device. I know I already have the Skeeter, which can be used with Post-its, business cards, etc. However, this small device will be the exact size of a Post-it pad, and look like a piece of cardboard backing. I think it will be called THE CRYSALIS. The second will be an adaptation and reimaging of an idea that goes back to Robert Nelson (and probably before) which will allow you to turn any clipboard into an impression device. My initial inclination is to call it the Broken Wing, as it will be a sort of portable Cicada, made from a high-grade untearable paper and, like the Cicada, can be worked with Magic Slate, carbon paper or magnetic field detection film, on any clipboard, even transparent ones.
MARK ZUST AT ITAGAIN?
The new OMNIPAD is a direct ripoff of my Nematode. As you may recall, this is the same chap who, a couple of years ago, marketed inferior knockoffs of my Brown Hornet Technology. When I spoke to him then, he was apologetic and claimed he had taken his products off the market. As it turns out, he didn't, but the word was out so I let it go. Once could be coincidence--twice is deliberate piracy. Please do not support this ripoff.
I have to occassionally order copies of my DVDs so my on-line provider doesn't delete them from the catalog. Consequently, I find myself at the moment with a set of my DVDs than I can't really do much with, except make the following offer: I have one complete set of From the Cradle to the Grave Vols 1-5, originally retailing at $250, I will sell to the first person making the inquiry for $175. Same with a set of Psychic Epiphaniws vols 1-5, original retail is $200, I will sell this set to the first comer for $150. Click here to get it. First come, first served.
Thanks everyone for your patience as I try to take care of the million frustrating details of moving wholesale to nother state. There is light at the end of the tunnel and things should be running back to normal soon.
PRICE INCREASE IMMINENT. I've held my prices where they are for several years, in spite of the escalating cost of supplies. A hard look at my profit margin has convinced me I must raise the prices of the bugboards. Brown Hornet and Cicada will increase from $100 to $125, and the smaller items will creep up a little bit. I may also soon be offering a choice of shipping services.
PLANS FOR 2013:
YES THE RUMORS ARE TRUE.
I have divorced and Have moved to Tennessee. This will free up more time to continue the BEYOND THE GRAVE series and I hope to have two more out by spring, which will discuss Tarot, Numerology, Palmistry, and one DVD will be entirely devoted to coffee and tea leaf reading.
ALSO, and this is BIG news, I am planning a limited series of workshops called READING, WRITING and 'RITHMATIC: the Three Rs of Performing Readings. Attendance will be limited to 15 people because this will be a hands-on workshop. Only people with previous experience performing readings should register, because everyone will immediately begin to practice and put to use the techniques I teach. Some knowledge of oracular systems is a prerequisite. This will not be for beginners. There will be feedback and critique, and the session will be recorded to DVD for the attendees use only. In other words, the material recorded will not be released commercially. I will be teaching techniques I've previously discussed, but in deeper detail and in context. More on this soon, and I hope to begin launch in March. Potential target cities are New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, Baltimore, San Francisco or Los Angeles. Overseas tour? We'll see how the US run goes.
The good news is the long-awaited DVD FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE is ready! This is the introductory first in the series on the science and art of performing readings for entertainment. This first DVD discusses some important concepts and teaches some very cool reading techniques. You may order it here.
The Nematode Tutorial DVD is also ready. This teaches the basic handling and operation of the Nematode as well as its various uses. It's a basic tutorial as the routines are covered in the instructions. Available here.
THE NEMATODE IS READY!
What is it? The Nematode is a notepad which allows you to perform a bewildering array of mentalism related miracles. Please be aware this is NOT an Impression device, although it is a development of my proprietary technology. If you can imagine the best features of a locking spirit slate / locking card box built into a notepad, this will give you an inkling of what I've come up with. You can perform Add-a-Number, Memory-Alteration effects, billet switches, billet peeks, design duplications, spirit effects, writing and design transformation effects, and so much more. Go HERE to check it out.
RUSH ORDERS: AGAIN, seldom possible. But if you live overseas, (or even in the US) and you need an order within a couple of weeks, I'll try to accomodate. However, I strongly advise you contact me about paying extra for expedited delivery, such as overseas priority or even express mail. I usually ship First Class Mail, which the post office assures me is 5-7 days. Sometimes, I'm told, in certain parts of the world, this has been more like 3-5 weeks. So if you truly need the stuff in a hurry, and if I have agreed to get it to you in a hurry, do yourself a favor and pay for expedited delivery. Yes, it's expensive, but you will get it in plenty of time.
Also: New impending release: THE NEMATODE: A utility notepad which will allow you to perform billet switches, Add-a-Number routines, word revelations and other cool stuff. Based on an oblique use of my magnetic sandwich principle, you'll like this very much. I'm making these from the notepads available at STAPLES for ease of otaining paper refills.
12 /26/11 I hope everyone had a very happy Holiday Season! Here is the good news: As of December 26th The HULL CARD DVD IS READY FOR DELIVERY!
The original Volta Hull Supper Club Act sold for $40, which today would be around $350- $400. In my opinion, to a working pro who has mastered all the nuances of the act, it is worth well over $1,000.
12 /01/11 Back from Vacation, rested, and diligently cranking out current orders. While in New York Sebastian Black suggested using a GUITAR PICK for a planchette for my Ouija Oracle device. I'm currently having some guitar picks specially printed and will include one with each board. If you have one of my Ouija Boards and want one of these specially-printed picks drop me a line and I'll send you one. They have the SUN graphic from the Fuld board printed on them and look pretty cool.
Psychic Epiphanies Volume Four is READY. GO HERE to order.
9/28/2011: The OUIJA ORACLE BOARD is READY! So what is it? Well, it's very cool. It's a 6" x 9" Ouija Board which is a Brown Hornet. That is to say, the back side, which has a very nice wood grain printed on it is the magnetic sandwich / Magic Slate tech.
This device opens sideways, that is, on the short edge (picture a Ouija board and you get the picture) it opens from the bottom of the Ouija board up. A piece of paper, held in place with a bulldog clip, locks the board. When you take the board back to place a piece of paper for yourself, you innocuously move the clip and grab the peek using the piece of paper as the cover. I have THREE designs: Classic William Fuld, a very nice Baroque design by Iain Dunford, and a "Qwerty" Keypad design for the corporate types who don't want to freak out the norms.The surfaces are printed on indestructable stock on a high-end color printer and mounted on lightweight expanded PVC plastic. It comes with a DVD explaining how to use it, how to peek it, etc, plus bonus graphic files with printable matching paper designs that are charming Ouija-designs for your audince members to write upon. Also available in pocket-size. Go HERE to see more and order in plenty of time for Halloween.
7/16/2011:Other trivial matters: My manufacturing process is as follows: I make a "run" of each product usually consisting of five of that item. Then I make another run of another item, etc. So I'll usually make five Brown Hornets, then five Butterflies, five Baby Hornets, etc. This helps me whittle away at my backlog, which typically is between 20-30 orders.
What this means to you is if you ordered several different items, it may take longer to assemble your order, because I'll set aside a package with your name and address on it, and each time I make a run of one of your items I drop it in the package until the order is assembled. Then I mail it off.
PSYCHIC EPIPHANIES VOLUME THREE--THE RESURRECTION--is finished and ready for ordering. Go HERE to get it.
I'm DELIGHTED to announce BOTH Volumes of the Complete Works compilation is available now. With new formatting, annotation, footnotes and commentary. You may order now at $125 each. Go HERE to order.
Thanks for your continued patience. As always, there is a two week waiting period on orders. Possibly more on some of them if the order falls within one of my crazy performing periods.
And as always I'm willing to gimmick YOUR pad for no extra cost. I've been contacted by several owners of the PARAPAD asking me if I can gimmick the exttra pad into a Butterfly device. Answer: yes.
A NOTE CONCERNING MY PRODUCTS:
Impression devices are subtle tools which require experience in audience management and psychological touches to use effectively. This is true of any Impression device, not just mine. If you're a beginner or have little performing experience, my tools may not be for you at this time. In the hands of an experienced performer they are foolproof and indetectable, but these are not for beginners.
