In 2006, Dr. Lawrence Hass did the unthinkable. He left his job as a tenured Professor to pursue close-up magic as a full-time profession. Against the odds, his magic business is thriving, he is content in his work, and he is happy.

“I’ve learned a lot through this life change, about myself certainly, but also about magic as a pursuit and a profession,” Larry says in the introduction to Dying to Change, “I have ideas to share about what magic is as an entertainment and an art form, and about what’s required to perform it successfully.”

Magic books usually deal with card stacks and finger positions for sleights. Dying to Change is about magic, but also about life.

Astonishing Essays is our most ambitious publishing project to date. It's a TEN-VOLUME collection of small, attractive books that will make you a better magician. The concept is simple: we pair the very finest intellects in magic with a topic they're passionate about. Each collection can be read in one sitting; it's meatier than an article but shorter than a full book. Think of it as "novella" size. Brew yourself a cup of coffee, get comfortable in your favorite chair, and open Astonishing Essays to be transported to a new world. These books will challenge the way you think about your magic and expand your horizons.
