Parallax by Max Maven
“You have found magic. Now, what are you going to do with it?”
So, muses Max Maven in the pages of Parallax, a collection of 61 influential, thought-provoking, and oftentimes controversial essays he contributed to MAGIC magazine from September 1991 to August 1996.
Rich with commentary, observations, and caustic editorializing, all composed in in a tone both rich and distinct, these essays have finally been collected in a single volume.
There are very few collections of essays in the world of magic, and fewer still that are as pointed or as relevant to those who consider themselves a genuine student of the art. Nor are there many examples of writing as deeply serious and simultaneously laugh-out-loud funny.
