THE ORACLE - Patrick Justian II, Editor

Considering the fact that the editor was little more than a teenager, THE ORACLE from 1986-87 was quite newsworthy for what it was.  The 8-12 page newsletters had noteworthy contributors including, Capt. Dick Wightman, Chuck Jackson, Steve Axtell, Peter Rich, Bill DeMar, Alan Ende. 

Unfortunately, Patrick Justian had a bit of a maverick reputation in the ventriloquist community and his efforts were not received with a great deal of enthusiasm.  So the  duration of this unique ventriloquist newsletter's publication was brief.  This collection of 7 may possibly include all that were published.  If you are a collector of ventriloquist memorabilia, you'll not get this chance often. You will receive the exact issues pictured.  The pro vents featured on the covers are: Richard Bruno, Capt. Dick, Pinxy Larson, Todd Stockman, Robert Ator (non-vent; artist), and Wilson Cronenwett.  For sale on eBay auction now:  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290644659652
