KORT: The Magic of Milt Kort was a book published in 1999 and written by Stephen Minch. It is about Milt Kort's close-up magic with cards, coins, and other small objects, such as dice, paper cups and balls, and even razor blades. The book also features many interesting anecdotes and bits of historical information from Kort's years as a pharmacist operating Kort's Drugs in Detroit, which was a hotspot for big-name magicians from all over the world. Kort was reviewed in the December 1999 issue of Genii.
