TUCKER is probably one of the craziest people you will ever meet in
magic. He may be crazy but he also happens to be highly talented
and a very creative person.
If he had been working with numbers he would have
invented the computer but luckily for all of us magic nuts Stephen
Tucker was magic crazy. He has invented many magic effects and has
supported himself himself over the years by performing magic,
inventing magic tricks and editing and producing magic magazines.
He was the editor and publisher of the amazing Spell-Binder
Magazine and when he was short of cash he sold all of the rights to me
and when he was short of money again he sold all the rights to his
really excellent Chicanery Magazine to me as well.
I have published a number of his magic books and it
is a little known fact that Stephen Tucker was the first person to ever
make a magical video cassette. We produced and made it together
and had no idea back then that we were both starting a revolution in
magic. Chicanery is a worthy successor to Spell-Binder and most
of the effects within its pages are by Stephen. He gave himself
pen names and a typical Tucker touch is that the names are Pen Tell and
Mark Erpen and so on.
