Ed Marlo (October 10, 1913 - November 7, 1991), born Edward Malkowski in Chicago, Illinois, was a prolific author and creator of well over 2,000 routines.

He coined the term "cardician" for magicians that perform card magic.

Marlo mentored and collaborated with many magicians including: Allan Ackerman, Simon Aronson, Steve Draun, Bill Malone, Jimmy Molinari, Jon Racherbaumer and David Solomon.

Controversy

Marlo was and is a controversial figure, often being accused of publishing material belonging to others including ATFUS and The Depth Illusion.

Harry Lorayne stated in an interview with the Magic Newswire on July 29, 2008 that he finally determined Marlo's "code of ethic" was that if Marlo figured out a routine on his own, he felt it was fine to publish it. But if someone told him how it was done, he would not publish that version.
