Magicians are such a bunch of Nazis it seems...wanting to ban books, and the like. The book will be published. Encourage readers to boycott buying it if you wish, but America is based upon free speech, so you have no right to prevent its publication. The test of our dedication to free speech is whether we believe in it when the speech is something we don't like. How would you feel if your favorite magicians were not allowed to publish their biographies...or the trick secrets they want to sell you, and you want to buy? How about when your fave band is banned from publishing their latest songs because someone objected to the lyrics? What will you say when the Jerry Falwell types try to ban this very venue...because it promotes magic...which is Satanism? The fools did try to ban the Harry Potter books, and movies, for just that reason. Chill out, dude.


What is it with you and free speech? Are you taking a goverment class?
Maybe you should go back and re-read the text book. As you seem to know very little on the subject...
You also have to consider our laws dont apply to the rest of the world.
You also have to consider, that the USA has banned books before. Trust me, I own a few books that at one point were banned.

Free speech, you have no idea what your talking about.

But the fact of the matter remains David, he is right. You cannot stop this book from being published, he is breaking no rules.

OJ Simpons book is being published, which I have heard is basically a confession to which he cannot be tried for again.

So the fact remains, the man can sell this book if he wants to. Bringing it to everyones attention is just as bad though, like the original poster did.

But isn't the original poster from Magichat anyway? Half of David Blaines effects are posted regularly there, so why does he care anyway.
