Good episode? Give it some love!
image Richard Hatch is the “H” in the “H&R Magic Books” along with business partner Charlie Randall (the “R”). Richard is also a scholar of magic history and has often been featured at conventions like the “Los Angeles Conference on Magic History” and “MAGIC Live!” talking about his research into the identity of the mysterious S.W. Erdnase, author of “Artifice Ruse and Subterfuge at the Card Table - A Treatise on the Science and Art of Manipulating Cards” but perhaps better known as “The Expert At The Card Table”.
In this week’s podcast we share the first of a two part podcast with Dick Hatch where he talks about the development of H&R Magic Books and his association with Karl Fulves and Walter Graham plus his exhaustive search for the person who was the author of the iconic book on card handling that influenced not only the “Professor”, Dai Vernon, but also generations of card magicians.
