The Secret Ways of Al Baker is at the printer and expected back late April (2003). The book is 912 pages with over 700 illustrations. Check out the table of contents on our site. The book has all of Baker's books and almost every effect he released, plus a lot more, including essays by Teller, Eugene Burger, John Carney, and Jay Marshall.  ~Todd Karr

For me, Al Baker has been a source of deep magical inspiration. I consider Al Baker to be one of the giants of twentieth-century magic.
