From the Introduction by Lawrence Hass:

"Bob and I worked together to select the pieces for this book and their arrangement. In selecting from such a bountiful menu [of Bob's unpublished manuscripts], we sought pieces that reflected a diversity of tones, themes, and props.  We also sought pieces that had especially interesting or deceptive secret methods.... I hope you enjoy...the feast!  Delicacies abound, sweets and savories.  Magic light and dark:  Nine Uneasy Pieces."

Words of Praise

Payne, M-U-M Magazine, June 2013:  "If you are unfamiliar with . . . the magic of Mr. Neale, Nine Uneasy Pieces is a great place to start. Here you will find nine typically Neale-istic routines—each one pleasantly odd, eerily eccentric, and unabashedly bizarre."

Jay Fortune, MagicSeen Magazine, March 2013:  "Realistically, this can be summed up quite simply: those who know Mr. Neale's work will snap this up as it is a limited edition of previously unpublished material. Those who don't, ought to snap it up, but probably won't get the chance."

Jeff Stone, Stone Cold Magic, December 2012:  "If you don't find something that moves you in the book, you are neither Awake nor Alive. . . .  Please, if you've got $15 bucks burning a hole in your pocket, or even if you feel like buying something other than milk and bread to feed your family, buy this book. It's worth every penny and then some. Final Verdict: 5 Stars with a Stone Status of Total GEM!
