Since 2016, I’ve reviewed thirty-one books and I consider all of those titles to have been somewhere between very good and excellent. While print runs are shorter today than in the Eighties and Nineties, the output of high-quality books has if anything improved. Even as I write this, I am in the midst of reading the newly released Second Thoughts by Ramón Riobóo from Hermetic Press; Principia by Harapan Ong, which I obtained only recently and so I never had the chance to review. I am also, along with many, looking forward to the imminent release of Steve Forte’s new tome, Gambling Sleight of Hand.
Magic publishing is healthy and strong—a turn of events I am very pleased to report, even if I will, yet again, be stepping aside from reviewing. Perhaps temporarily, quite possibly indefinitely.
So, until we next meet, I say, as ever: Thanks for reading.
