Al Koran's Legacy
Published by Martin Breese 2009. Harback with dust jacket. 230pp
The book contains most of the material in the original edition, but virtually everything has been re-written and benefits from the skill of an expert editor. There is a host of additional material written by Lewis Ganson and previously published in the Routined Manipulation series published by Harry Stanley.
Along with my close friend Graham Jolley, I have always been a follower of Al Koran and his amazing material. I missed a great era of magic that was taking place in London in the 50s and 60s while I was living abroad and everything that was happening seemed to be the brainchild of the late Harry Stanley. My way of being in touch with the magic happening in the UK was by reading each month’s copy of The Gen magazine. Al Koran’s name appeared on almost every page. And thanks to Harry Stanley his material has been preserved for future generations to study and use.
I would like to thank Graham Jolley for helping us to unravel a very complex effect in this book. In previous editions of Al Koran’s Legacy the instructions for Headline Prediction were hard to follow but Graham persevered in working out the correct method for the effect. And that is probably why, up to now, he is one of the few to perform this baffling routine. Graham usually closes his act with this effect as it is so powerful. He has written it up for us showing exactly how it should be performed and having seen Graham perform it many times I can confirm it is completely baffling.
Lewis Ganson’s Routined Manipulation series on Al Koran has also been included as a very special added bonus and this includes Al’s Koran’s Miracle Blindfold Card Act. It is one of the finest routines in this book
