Edition:
 
Now available in two editions: Special Edition (Blue Cover) and Magician's Edition (Yellow Cover).

The Special Edition includes only the historical parts from the original book, so it is a perfect gift for people interested in Chicago and Magic History, but who may not care to learn any tricks. The Magician's Edition (original edition) also includes the  book-within-a-book "If You Have Time…" which details the genesis and workings of ten comedic magic routines Bill created and performed at the magic bars. That's Bill Weimer's original repertoire created for and inspired by the Chicago Magic Bar scene.

Now You See Them, Now You Don’t:
My life in the magic bars of Chicago


From the mid-1970’s until the late 1990’s, live magical entertainment was just a short ride away for many Chicagoans.  People flocked to the magic bars to share the laughter and awe generated from the miracles of Chicagoan magicians.

In Now You See Them, Now You Don’t, Bill Weimer reflects on the history, the performers, the magic, and the still-told stories of the magic bars he worked: Schulien's Restaurant, New York Lounge, Little Bit O' Magic (I & II), Bit O' Magic, Houdini's Pub, and The Magic Theatre.  Joining Bill in looking back to those good old days are dozens of people who were there: the magic bar owners, Bill’s co-workers, and fellow magicians who frequented the places.
