(Benny) Ben Harris

Ben Harris has been inventing magic tricks since the late 1970's.

His most famous invention, Cosmosis: The Original Floating Match (1986) is one of magic's most popular effects. It is also one of the most ripped-off tricks in modern history as any search on the internet will prove. As the author of dozens of books, manuscripts and lecture notes on the art (as well as 40 plus individual tricks), Harris has toured, lectured and performed in over 30 countries. He has created magic for the world's leading magicians and for the Disney Company. He is currently preparing his new book The Lost Art Of Metal Bending for the magic market, a novel (trilogy: Occam's Phaser, The Pickled Man, Half Past Then) and a screenplay. He is also directing the BackStory Project.

Ben regularly completes artwork for the Paul Harris Presents, and Real Secrets teams. He has designed hundreds of DVD packs and trick sets for the world's leading magic distributor: Murphy's Magic Supplies. With over 30 years experience in publishing for the magic industry, projects have included work for Max Maven, Paul Harris, Jay Sankey, David Harkey, Daryl, Joshua Jay, Joel Givens, Steve Shufton, David Blaine, Richard Sanders and too many more to name.

Julio's Psychic Pizza Menu

Julio's Psychic Pizza Menu by (Benny) Ben HarrisJulio's Psychic Pizza is an easy to perform and completely self-working prediction that allows a spectator to predict a pizza style (Olives and Anchovies, Italian, Classic, Hawaiian, etc) and the appropriate base (thick or thin) and an accompanying beverage (Milkshake, Iced Tea, Cola, Orange juice, etc).

The performer introduces a colorful and glossy menu from Julio's Psychic Pizza Shop (est. 1971). Printed on the inside is a psychic circle of pizza styles representing what's available.The spectator thinks of any number between 1--1000 (no force) and counts around the circle (either clockwise...

Mentallica: Heavy Mental Magic

Mentallica: Heavy Mental Magic by (Benny) Ben HarrisMentallica is a series of hard-hitting effects drawn from Harris' one-man show: Hellucinations.
"If you like clever and practical ideas, this ebook has them. Even for effects utilizing marketed props, Ben's alternative presentations lift them up to a new level of application. If you appreciate creative ideas because this will spur you on to thinking of alternative applications for the many props that are lying idle in your magic drawers, then this book is highly recommended for you." - John Teo

The majority of effects are new presentations and uses for existing props like: The Mother...

A Thought Well Stolen

A Thought Well Stolen by (Benny) Ben HarrisA Thought Well Stolen combines two of magic's great card effects - Any Card At Any Number, and Paul Curry's Out Of This World - into a wicked hybrid; morphing them into a mind-blowing frenzy. Can you even imagine what this resultant offspring would look like?

As in Any Card At Any Number, the performer reveals the identity of a freely though-of card - and its position in a deck - without asking a single question. Seriously, this is solid and gripping mentalism; there is no force, the card is a free mental selection and no questions are asked. Having read his spectator's mind, discerning his card and its position in the deck, the performer...

Checkout Chi: pay with your mind

Checkout Chi: pay with your mind by (Benny) Ben HarrisCheckout Chi is the first new effect from Ben Harris in ages. And, it's been worth the wait.

Checkout Chi will drop the jaws of your audiences when YOU PAY for the restaurant bill, bar tab, groceries, gasoline, movie tickets, or what have you--WITH YOUR MIND. No cash, no credit cards, just your mind!

And, it's genuine: The vendor gets paid. A receipt is issued. All is above board.

Seriously, this is the kind of impromptu magic that makes reputations. The moment arising from a real-world situation (having to pay the bill), and the solution (paying the bill with magic), proving your mastery...

Quarks and Quirks (for resale)

Quarks and Quirks (for resale) by (Benny) Ben Harris
"Some of the most clever takes on the Torn and Restored Card in years, Ben Harris' Quarks & Quirks is an invigorating journey of topological twists and tears." - Richard Kaufman
A journey beyond the tear, inspired by the weird world of Quantum Physics. In this superbly produced book, filled with photographs Ben Harris shares seven routines. Includes:

THE QUARTER BACK TEAR

A method for apparently tearing a card cleanly in half, while in reality, only tearing one quarter from the card. This sets you up as either a "quarter ahead" or a "quarter behind" depending upon the intended application....

The remarkable effect shifts "the moment" in Paul Harris' amazing Vanishing Deck allowing for a card to be selected and signed.

This selected card is shuffled back into the deck which is then held in full view.

Upon command, the entire deck visually vanishes (that's right - it just blinks out of being) leaving only the chosen card as a poignant applause cue.

"The Crossroads technique alone, which we really like, will be seen as food for thought by many. As mentalists, our variation would be to use no deck at all. Just a single, thought-of card in the pocket. The solution will dawn on you after reading the text..." - Richard Busch & Larry Becker

Enlightenment is a revolutionary way of using magnets to create the illusion of levitating a playing card or a dollar note.

This 100 page book gives you all of the details. Learn the back history, how a simple advertisement in a catalog inspired the idea. Learn how to operate the gimmick, how to install it in a deck of cards, and how to use it to make a dollar bill float. You'll still...

Messing with NCR Paper

Messing with NCR Paper by (Benny) Ben HarrisMagic and science mix to create amazing possibilities with this special paper!

NCR paper is the carbonless paper used to make up receipt and invoice books. It allows impressions to be made on several sheets without the use of carbon paper. And, just like the chemically reactive magic that people have created with ATM paper and Frixion pens, NCR paper also has potential for magical use.

The author established it's use back in 1989 with an excited fax to Jeff Busby. (This document is included from the Harris archives.)

Ben then teaches two routines with the special paper. The first involves...

Knee Kracker

Knee Kracker by (Benny) Ben HarrisMake a bottle of drink vanish by cracking it across your knee!

This is a reputation-maker. The magic just seems to come out of the blue as you pick up your drink bottle, cap it, and then crack it across your knee where it vanishes completely!

Three applications are taught. A formal handling with Topit, a tabled handling and a cheeky walk-around handling for parties when you are hanging with friends. For these latter two approaches, you need no Topit, just the bottle. You can even make a partly filled bottle vanish or pass through a table-top!

1st edition 2013, 14 pages.
