A reader, J.W.S., emailed me the other day after having done some math. He determined that between this site, the X-Communication newsletter, the two books, and the JAMM, that I had created the equivalent of approximately 4200 pages of writing on magic in the last two years. That's bananas. What's even crazier is that Jerx completists have read over 4200 pages of my writing in that time. You—the guy who had to get the Cliffs Notes for Animal Farm—read 4200 pages of my gibberish/genius. 

The sad fact is, for many of you, if we go by the metric of level of engagement and time spent reading, I could make a convincing case that I'm your favorite author.

Take that, F. Scott Fitzgerald!
