A couple of 'lovelies' have been shooting off on the internet about Dai Vernon. Honestly, I don't know what it is with you people. Sure, Dai had a nice touch with the cards, he was a good student of mine, and if he'd applied himself a bit MORE then he might have been MORE of a success.
Somehow, there's always been a confusion about the origin of some of my best effects. "Solayme's Revelation", "Barry's Trick That Cannot Be Explained" and "Twisting the Jacks" to name but three. Dai never disputed that these were MY creations, and as he was a friend, I let him publish them back in the day. But all you young punks who worship Vernon would do well to remember what HE used to call ME!!
Yes, that's right, he called me "The Professor". So now you know, don't waste your money on those Vernon books, READ THE ORIGINALS! (Paypal the usual address).
