At long last, the third and final volume of the magazine that was so underground, it's just now coming up for air. From 1963-1979 Howard Lyons' Ibidem was so far ahead of the pack in innovative card magic, we're still catching up to it. Reprinted in this jumbo volume are the final 8 issues plus an unpublished issue of material from "crazy" Tom Ransom.
Tossed in for good measure is Howard Lyons's long-anticipated avant-garde magazine, Aziz, plus added material. Aziz was a magazine Howard was assembling a few years before his death, intended to replace Ibidem. Howard didn't live long enough to getAziz out, but the material collected for the first issue survived, and make up the first section of Aziz & Beyond. Max Maven has done an extraordinary job of unearthing, editing, interpreting, organizing and deciphering MSS. by Howard and others, to present material from Howard's files and other sources, which might have appeared beyond the first issue of Aziz, had Howard Lyons survived to publish it.
Contributors to Aziz are Howard Lyons, Mel Stover, Peter Duffie, Allan Slaight, Ken Beale, Phil Goldstein, Robert E. Neale, Paul Swinford, J. K. Hartman, Ron Wohl and others. Over 140 pages of unpublished material, making a volume with a total of 360 pages, plus 12 pages in full color, hardbound.
