From the inside cover jacket:
From the dark and dingy depths of the MAGIC DUNGEON come some of the most unusual, creative contributions of the Art of Magic. What's that- Did you think the M.D.A. was some kind of dealers' association? Please do not be confused. The first and foremost thought in your mind associated with the letters M.D.A. should, and shall be from this moment on, the MAGIC DUNGEON ACADEMY, an obscure but prolific magic group that has its laboratory and members located in Los Angeles, California. Out of the cobwebs and shadows cast by the spiders and flickering candlelight of the Dungeon, emerges weird and intriguing magical ideas and performances. A visit to the Magic Dungeon Academy is as much fun and as exciting as a trip to Disneyland, but you don't need an "E" ticket for this trip through the tombs of mystery at an M.D.A. meeting.
"Recently, I attended a meeting of the M.D.A. As I listened to the conversation and watched the magic, I was struck by the youth of the members, and then I took a second look. Not all those present were as young as I thought they were... it was their attitude. They have all managed to retain their enthusiasm for magic. I have felt the same electricity emanate from children who have mastered their Mysto Magic sets, and who have entered a magic shop for the first time. Couple this youthful exuberance with the skills of professionals, and you have an M.D.A. meeting. It was one of the most enjoyable meetings I have ever attended. Long may they wave... (their magic wands, that is)." - Jules Lenier
