New Book Causing Wizards to Cast Their Spells

Free Speech Versus Magic Secrecy

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 23, 2007 -- Barclay Road, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BCYR) has a new book, soon to be published by book division, Lifetime Books.

"Magic Secrets of David Blaine: The street magician revealed," written by Herbert L. Becker, follows on the very successful 1995 Lifetime Books publication, "All the Secrets of Magic Revealed."

Publication of the David Blaine secrets book has been pushed off until 2008 for a couple of reasons, first of all, demand for pre-release was greater than first anticipated and secondly, concern for revealing how street magicians perform their feats might cause pandemonium in the market place.

"Before you know it, everyone will be freezing themselves in blocks of ice or standing on poles in Central Park," quipped a company spokesperson.

In reality, there is a small group that would prefer not to allow magic secrets to be revealed. "Many magicians believe in keeping the secrets of magic just that, a secret. There has been a great deal of pressure not to publish this book," the spokesperson added.

The 1995 publication of "All the Secrets of Magic Revealed" has become the most successful magic book in history, selling over 250,000 copies according to the most recent information.

Pre-release sales from Amazon.com and BN.com have been sizzling. At one point, it was at the top of the sales rankings.
