Hi Folks, Barry Solayme here!
I thought it was time this blog got a touch of class: Solayme style. Now most of you will know me already from my many books on magic (if not THEN BUY THEM NOW!!!), and my long running monthly magazine, 'Armageddon'.
I've been in the business longer than you people have been alive, and I think it's fair to say that I've influenced all the greats, from Hofzinser through to Blaine. And they haven't always given me credit.
Now I promised Roland I wouldn't go stirring up any bitterness, but let's just say there's a guy over in Sweden who should be watching his back...
Anyway, more of that another time. For now, I'm just saying "Hello WMF", and I look forward to sharing my wisdom and reminisces from time to time. After all, not many people actually 'knew' Erdnase (least of all Wesley James, that goddam hippy). But here's a clue: if you take S.W. Erdnase, mix the letters up, take some away, then add some more, well... it spells BARRY SOLAYME!! Just a little hint.
