Our Cards - False Cut - Ascent of the Black Fours - A Restoration - Triple Alliance - The Four Aces - Double Cut - A Prediction

Card workers the world over praise his beautiful effects and their methods.

See below for a few brief quotes from experts in the field.

"The author has attempted to approach as closely as possible to perfect magic. I recommend it." (John Braun)

"Card magic with a minimum of manipulation, with all extraneous actions sheared away." (Milbourne Christopher)

"It is hard to pick one trick as the best but, if pressed, would cast our vote for the final effect, "A Prediction." But all are good and will appeal especially to readers of his first two books, who know how direct is Stewart's presentation." (Sam Aaronson)

"Principles are cleverly concealed; climaxes are excellent." (Herman Hanson)
