Just noodling around Penguin and debating looking into some of Ed Marlos' material.
I found a few different books that appeal, one that mentioned being #2 of a trillogy
but I wasn't able to identify the entire trillogy so if someone can name them I'd appreciate it.
Overall I wanted you guys opinion on which Marlo material you'd consider essential or core.
I noticed the Malone meets Marlo Dvd's but I think I'd like to stick with the books for now.
Either way I guess. I'm all ears, let me know your thoughts.

Thanks in advance.

This post has made me realize that I have never gone to the source for Marlo material. All of his stuff that I know are other peoples interpretation of him, most of that from Ackermann. You should probably just pick up Heirphant and let us know what you think.

As far as I know there are only 2 books so far: RCT and Cardially Yours. The second volume is a compilation of the following books:
•Early Marlo
•Pasteboard Presto
•Amazing, Isn't It?
•Marlo's Discoveries
•Oddity & Other Miracles
•Let's See the Deck
•Off the Top
•Marlo in Spades
•The Cardician

RCT (Revolutionary Card Technique) is a compilation of early Marlo manuscripts which has 500 pgs and 1000 illustrations.

It is a huge tome and Bill Malone states that if he was stranded on a deserted island and could only have one book on magic, this would be his choice.

I don't know what the third volume is and when it will see the light of day...Marlo is a must to study but not easy to digest IMHO.

Best regardz,
Olmagi52 :D :wink: 8)

I have this set. I like it a lot and still watch it from time to time. Its nice to see him kinda in his element, and he is by all means one of my favorite card magicians.
The dvds have a couple performances and do not show the technique but its cool, I learned a good amount from these and say they are well worth the price

I know you said books but wanted to give you my input.


I wish I could find some volumes of the magazine he is always talking about
