Master Sleights with Billiard Balls by Burling HullA series of original sleights with miniature billiard balls including an explanation of the author's ball stand and vanishing apparatus, and a thirty minute manipulative act.
Owing to the remarkable increase in the popularity of experiments with Miniature Billiard Balls, since the publication of “Expert Billiard Ball Manipulation,” and to the frequently expressed wish that I might have something further on this subject to offer Manipulative Artists, I have been induced to delay the publication of the next volume of the series and give preference to a supplementary volume of original ball...

The Rare Square Spotted Wooden Egg by Dave ArchInspired by the name of a Dave Mayer routine entitled The Black Spotted Wooden Egg referenced by name only in a 1989 IBM Ring report, I constructed this five-minute routine for the venerable die box that has now entertained audiences for two decades. Between two volunteers acting out their parts on stage, and the entire audience creating the sound effects necessary for the story, no one is left without a part to play in this routine. It just might bring your die box out of the drawer.

Mainly Manipulative Magic by John AlboroughFrom the introduction by Lewis Ganson:
Seeing the late Edward Victor on stage at the now defunct Metropolitan Theatre in Edgware Road, London, when John was a small boy, started his interest in magic. Later he became enamoured with the manipulative magic of Geoffrey Buckingham, so it is not surprising that Victor's expert thimble magic and Buckingham’s excellent manipulation of billiard balls, should have had a marked influence on the type of magic John performs. Having met and enjoyed the confidence of these two magicians and studied their books, he built his own act. Certainly the Victor / Buckingham influence is there...

The Classic Egg on Fan by Edwin HooperA marvelous trick featured by many of the greats in magic. In effect a piece of paper is crumpled up and bounced on a fan. Visibly it assumes the shape of an egg - a full-sized egg - and this is removed from the fan and broken into a glass to prove genuine.

This special manuscript tells you all you need to know about this famous trick. The correct way to make the special egg at home and the correct way to store it. Various steals, types of fan to use, lead-up and follow-up tricks, etc., etc. A very valuable publication on this subject.

Pins and Needles by Matt MelloPins and Needles isn't your average Russian Roulette. First of all, it's funny. Until it becomes shocking! This mix of comedy and sudden drama will guarantee your audiences will be highly entertained.

Most effects in this plot tend to use disposable items, such as cups or bags, making them impractical for a close-up or walk-around scenario. Pins and Needles was created for this exact environment.

This illustrated PDF teaches the full presentation and script, as well as an insanely practical method to the Russian Roulette plot, allowing you to stay in complete control the entire time. ...

The Last Word on Cups and Balls by Eddie JosephFrom the introduction:
Every piece of information - idea - suggestion and routine has been independently created, developed, exploited and tested by the author some time or other. The reader is therefore assured, he is not getting any "second-hand" material in consequence.

The colossal amount of material crammed between these covers, will provide the progressive manipulator with a wealth of valuable assets.

The book has been divided into three parts. The first supplies detailed explanation for nearly forty new moves and passes. The second is kept apart for the creation of novel effects...

Die-Lemma by David DevlinDavid Devlin has come up with a very whimsical and clever effect that is simple to do and a blast to perform. This effect uses dice that are printed by the U.S. Playing Card Company. These are not normal dice. These dice have card suits and card values printed on them. They are called Poker Dice. These are readily available any place that games are sold and are very inexpensive. This is a great trick for use in walk around and restaurant performing.

Here is the effect: The performer brings out a deck and casually gives it a few cuts. A spectator gives the deck a cut but does not complete...
