The Magic Cafe honours Zarrow & Vernon

4 Feb

Every January The Magic Cafe, the world’s largest online discussion forum for magicians, votes for the best book released in the preceding year. In 2008, forty-six new magical publications were nominated. Ballots, from over ten different countries, were cast by a forum of members during January 2009. The results were tabulated and announced on February 1, 2009.

Zarrow: A Lifetime of Magic by Magicana’s Chairman, David Ben, received 15% of the votes and came in second place. This is a tremendous accomplishment since the book was late in (November) 2008 with a limited print run.

Dai Vernon’s Revelation was also recognized with 5% of votes.

Both books are available from the publishers Meir Yedid Magic (Zarrow: A Lifetime of Magic) and Mike Caveney’s Magical Words (Revelation).
