Sheherazade by Borodin, Bill Palmer, Adesso Verlag(c. 2003) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Details: If you do any kind of story magic at all, this is the book for you!
If you have Magical Adventures and Fairy Tales or Once Upon a Time by Punx, you don’t want to miss this one! If you have been kicking yourself because you missed out on the Punx books, you definitely want to get this book.
Sheherazade is not a magic book. Sheherazade is also not a story book. Sheherazade is the successful synthesis of the two. This book contains extremely refined routines which are easy to perform. They are dressed up in artistic presentations which transform them into exciting miracles which captivate and please not only the eye, but also the ear of the audience.
And this causes an interesting phenomenon: the magic takes place in the minds, in the fantasies of the audience.
The first section deals with stories that have a feeling of fairy tales. The second section “Midnight Stories” quickly teaches the audience the meaning of horror. Thanks to Borodin’s elegantly composed words, this is the stylistically the finest and magically the most exacting presentation of the often very rough field of Bizarre Magic, which is enjoying such a great success in today’s world of magic.
The third section presents the reader with the broad field of mental magic. Here Borodin presents his fabulously outstanding technical knowledge which is framed in exciting presentations.
When Sheherazed was printed in German in 1999, it took the German world of magic by storm. In 2000, Ulf Bolling-Borodin was awarded the Author of the Year Award by the Magic Circle of Germany for this book. There are 32 routines, 320 pages, lots of photos and line drawings. Borodin was considered by Punx to be his best student. He is a master storyteller and a very creative magician.
Most of this material will be completely new to the English-speaking world. There are enchanting tales that will keep you spellbound, horror stories that will raise the hairs on the back of your neck and mental mysteries that will convince your audience that you really can read their minds.
All of these routines have been thoroughly audience tested. There are no pipe dreams here. As of now, fewer than 1000 copies will be printed, so make sure to get your copy today!
