Edward Marlo is a phenomenon who has unquestionably made an indelible mark in the world of magic. In the past forty years he has published numerous innovative and influential books, plus an impressive number of articles for various magazines. The Complete Marlo Bibliography is still incomplete, but at last count there are over 1500 items, covering 3200 pages of text, and over 57 books! Over and above this remarkable prolificacy is the consistent superiority of the material itself. And all of it chronicles his long, ardent, and fastidious love affair with the pasteboards. Marlo Without Tears is another fascinating chapter in the Marlovian quest for the Real Work.

Jon Racherbaumer, in his own words, is "a conscientious dilettante, who strives to discover useful and lasting material and then translate it into readable books and articles." He is the author of eighteen books and manuscripts, including the best-selling CARD FINESSE and THE ASCANIO SPREAD. He is also the controversial and innovative publisher of Hierophant, Kabbala, and Sticks & Stones, magazines that continue to inform and stimulate the cognoscenti. He has also contributed over 100 items to various magic magazines.

Of Marlo he has said, "It's been my goal to infuse my writings with the same kind of enthusiasm and esprit evoked by Marlo's actual performances to somehow show Marlo's marvelous thinking, while giving a vicarious sense of life to the dead reckoning of dry, technical prose."
