The digital version of Pabular Magazine - long considered to be one of the finest magazines of close-up magic ever - is now, by arrangement with the original publisher Nick Bolton, available from Martin Breese.
It was published by Nick Bolton with contributions and art direction from Eric Mason. The editors were Fred Robinson, Walt Lees and Stephen Tucker. The first effect in the magazine was by Roy Walton and contributors include: Jack Avis, Gaeton Bloom, John Carney, Tony Corinda, Ted Danson, Will Dexter, Bob Driebeek, Shiv Duggal, Peter Duffie, Alex Elmsley, Dominique Duvivier, Cy Endfield, Bob Farmer, Flip, Piet Forton, Roberto Giobbi, Ray Grismer, Paul Hallas, Steve Hamilton, Francis Haxton, Jim Hooper, Basil Horwitz, Charles Hudson, Gentleman Jack, Larry Jennings, Rick Johnsson, Peter Kane, Fred Kaps, Gerald Kosky, Simon Lovell, Trevor Lewis, Ed Marlo, Bob Ostin, Pat Page, Oscar Pladek, John Ramsay, Bob Read, Rovi, Sam Schwartz, Al Smith, Hans Trixer, Stephen Tucker, Dai Vernon and Tommy Wonder. Some contributors had one man issues and these include: Roy Walton (2 issues), Phil Goldstein (3 issues), Gordon Bruce, David Carre, Walt Lees and Barrie Richardson.
Anyone with a PC or Mac computer can view every single page of the magazine. Any page or the entire magazine can be printed out.
Illustrations and text can be enlarged for easy viewing and a searchable index, created by Ian Keeble consisting of 74 detailed pages (believe it or not) can be used to take you in seconds to any trick or effect that you want. Hundreds of copies of this long-awaited CD-Rom have already been sold. At the Blackpool Convention almost everyone was enquiring when this CD-Rom would be released. And now it is ready and on sale. All 1,311 pages of Pabular Magazine can be yours now.
"Like Martin Breese's previous digital releases (Pentagram and Max Andrews Magic) this is a veritable snip at the price. Even if you're not a fan of digital media (ebooks), for this money you simply cannot go wrong. Highly recommended -
Peter Duffie, Magicweek Magazine"
