Racherbaumer, Jon (editor): Marlo on Erdnase
©2007, Houdini Magic
Ppbk, 5.5x8.5, 248pp

Comments (DrDanny): Subtitled "Annotation and Marginalia on _Expert at the Card Table_" A compilation of Ed Marlo's writings, both published and unpublished, on or related to Erdnase's standard reference. Some entries are quite short. Mostly photo illustrations with a few line drawings. Probably of most interest to Marlophiles.

Note: The by-line says "compiled and edited by Jon Racherbaumer." By my reading, JR contributed a lot to the text.
