Mentalism Masterclass 12: propless mentalism

Peter Turner

Mentalism Masterclass 12: propless mentalism by Peter TurnerThe master of Propless Mentalism, Peter Turner now offers a full series in this topic.

The definition of Propless Mentalism is, at best, arguable (this is discussed in length inside this volume). The definition that Peter has stuck closely to is: the participant never writes anything down, and the only time the mentalist writes anything is to reveal information.

Peter has tried to make the material as sure-fire as possible (not chancy or bold), whilst keeping the process as small as possible - no long-winded, drawn-out presentations. If the presentation isn't as quick as (if not faster...

Peter Turner

Mentalism Masterclass 11: hypno-effects by Peter TurnerThis ebook teaches the illusion of hypnosis; you don't need to be a hypnotist to perform these mind blowing effects.

Hypnosis is one of the purest and real forms of mentalism; in essence you are apparently a true master of mind control, with the ability to make anyone do anything you wish. With great power comes great responsibility. From mentalism effects with a hypnosis flavour, to self working hypnosis-esque miracles, it's all in here. If you have followed the rest of the monthly course volumes, you'll know that each month is packed with effects, routines, principles and ideas from a range...

Oil and Queens

Jon Racherbaumer

Oil and Queens by Jon RacherbaumerThe oil and water effect is a classic of card magic, some love it, some hate it. If one has ever seen Rene Lavand do it slow motion with one hand you probably love it. But there is only one Rene Lavand. Some say the effect of red and black cards separating is rather weak, until Roy Walton added a kicker in 1969 where half the cards change to Queens. Dave Bendix tweaked Walton’s handling. Bob Stencil and Terry LaGerold devised a narrative that logically excused the surprise appearance of the Queens. Jon Racherbaumer and Jeff Busby independently expanded the kicker to not only change half the...

Secrets' Weapons

Gerard Zitta

Secrets' Weapons by Gerard ZittaDo you think people really care if you find a coin is heads, or in their left hand?? They rather are impressed if you guess their secrets or if they lie.

Intro/Basic effect: You meet a complete stranger. They think of somebody, or something, or a place you can not possibly know. Anything. And then, they think of a secret, a statement about this person, this object or this place that is either true or false. You (or the audience) will then ask only one question, not related to the statement, and will know instantly if the statement is true or not.

Heads or Tails: You find out if they lie...

Timing

Brian T. Lees

Timing by Brian T. LeesOne of the most important elements of a performance. Without allowing time for the audience to comprehend the magician is doing nothing more than running through a series of instruction steps. Time adds drama, energy and the sizzle needed to enhance magic.

Timing is a hard subject to cover. One does not learn from books or lectures. Those sources, like this text, help identify the value of time. The magician must acquire his/her own skills with the use of time.

This text will help identify how it is used, provide examples you can relate to, and get you started. Armed with this knowledge...

Sleight Intended

J. G. Thompson Jr.

Sleight Intended by J. G. Thompson Jr.From the foreword:
For years the pattern has been the same. A newcomer to magic invariably turns first to cards as a vehicle for mystification. He spends hours upon hours mastering difficult sleights and then, to his dismay, learns of the existence of easier and more effective maneuvers hidden away in magical literature - moves about which he could have no knowledge, but which would have made his previous struggles unnecessary, or, at least, eased them. Gradually he discards the results of many arduous hours of practice and substitutes the newly discovered and simplified versions until,...
