The Celtic Cabal e-book by Peter Duffie

Hi folks

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that Peter Duffie's latest e-book was nearing release.  Well, I am now happy to announce that the e-book has now been released and is available to buy here.

The e-book itself has 35 contributors from Scotland, Wales and Ireland sharing a total of 44 items - including 2 essays - in over 170 pages, illustrated with photographs.  I contributed a couple of items to it which are amongst my favourite items to perform, which is why I am able to sell it here.

The list of contributors reads like a who's who of Scottish, Welsh and Irish magic (which makes me wonder how I got to be part of it!).  Here's the table of contents:-

The e-book costs £15 and can be ordered using the PayPal button at the foot of this entry.  The e-book will be e-mailed to the e-mail address connected to your PayPal account within 24 hours.


If you have any questions regarding this e-book, do not hesitate to e-mail me.

Speak soon.

Upcoming Scottish Magic Conventions

Hi folks

Just a quick post to let you know of a couple of magic conventions coming up very near future.

First up is the 59th Annual Convention of the Scottish Association of Magical Societies - otherwise known as "SAMS" - which takes place this weekend (Friday 30th April to Sunday 2nd May) at the Tontine Hotel in Greenock.

There will be lectures from John Archer and Dave Forrest (both of which I am looking forward to) as well as a few dealers, competitions (these are dependent on the numbers of entries), a Close Up Show, a Gala Show boasting a line up including John Archer and illusionist Guy Barrett and a farewell lunch on the Sunday afternoon.  But that's not all that this convention is about.  SAMS is, traditionally, a time for getting together and meeting up with friends old and new.  It's always a fun weekend.

Cost of a full registration is £45 for the weekend.  For more details e-mail Janet Colvan, the SAMS Registration Officer.

The other convention to mention just now is Perth Magic Circle's 60th Anniversary Day of Magic in the Grampian Hotel in Perth on Sunday 23rd May, with the day's events starting at 10am.

Davenport's, the UK's oldest established magic shop, will be attending and will be bringing a wide selection of magic for sale and there will also be 2 lectures through the day - one from Roy Davenport and the other from Trevor Lewis - which should both be excellent.  To mark their anniversary, Perth City Council have granted Perth Magic Circle a Civic Reception and everyone attending will be invited to this which will precede the Gala Cabaret featuring Colin McLoed, who scored heavily at last years Edinburgh Fringe, Trevor Lewis and Roy Davenport who will present his Grandfathers famous manipulation act.

The cost for the entire day is £20 (Juniors - under age 16 years - £10, accompanied by a responsible adult)

I'll be at both events as I am performing in the Close Up Shows at both Conventions.  I look forward to seeing you at either or both events.

Speak soon.
