Card Conspiracy was originally written as a single volume with an unusual organization. Each chapter was organized around a central move (or a concept, principle, or subtlety), with the chapters arranged in alphabetical order. When it was split into two volumes, Vol. 1 began with "B" for "Biddle Force" (we didn't have an "A"), and ended with "H" for "Hummer Principle." Vol. 2 begins where Vol. 1 ended, with "I" for the "Interlocked Principle" and ends with "T" for "Three Card Catch." (No, there isn't an abbreviated Vol. 3 for "U"—"Z". But there will be another similar volume in the future).

We have little to add to this second volume beyond what we said in the preface to Vol. 1, except that we have been pleased by the response to that volume. You'll find more chapters, more tricks, more moves and more pages in this volume.

We would like to thank our friends Aldo Colombini, Max Maven and Reinhard Müller for providing historical notes, corrections, and additions for several of the tricks in Vol. 1.
