John Bannon has just released a new book titled "High Caliber".

Over forty complete routines are described in Bannon’s easy-going readable style. Here are the tricks and the clever, innovative thinking behind them. Collected from Bannon’s publications over the ten years since his internationally best-selling Dear Mister Fantasy, you’ll find an impressive variety as well:

Sophisticated “fractal” packet tricks, Contemporary gambling demonstrations, Ultramodern Ace assemblies, Unorthodox “garden path” tricks, Unconventional transpositions, Refined mental mysteries.

High Caliber covers the magical waterfront with a fresh, original view.

Virtually all of the routines use regular cards, most are impromptu, and quite a few are self-working. Typical of Bannon’s work, each layered construction has been polished until the trick has a point, a purpose, and a place in the magical firmament.

Check out the great interview Dan harlan did with John during Magic LIVE.

Is their any material from the Dear Mister Fantasy book in this new book, or is it just the material from his smaller books? I think I've got all the smaller books but don't have the DMF book in my library. His book Impossibilia is still my favorite.
