Paul Rosini's Magical Gems

Rufus Steele

Paul Rosini's Magical Gems by Rufus SteeleAfter Rosini's death, Frederick Braue wrote in the February, 1949 issue of Hugard's Magic Monthly, "What a book Rosini could have written - and now his knowledge of audiences is lost. Others, take note." Unfortunately, Rosini never did get the chance to write a book detailing his own methods. He planned on writing one, but his dream was never realized during his lifetime.

In 1947 Paul approached his longtime friend and fellow magician Rufus Steele to aid him in writing a book of his tricks. Steele was a mysterious character whose background was questionable to say the least. An electrical engineer by trade, Rufus was also a gambler and...

The Last Word on Cards

Rufus Steele

The Last Word on Cards by Rufus SteeleThis is certainly not 'the last word on cards'. There never will be a last word on cards. But it is a delightful collection of self-working card effects. Some of the brightest minds contributed: Ed Marlo, Eddie Joseph, Al Leech, Bill Simon, Eddie Fields, Oscar Weigle, Audley Walsh and of course Rufus Steele himself.

You will find the original "Sam and Moe" card story on which Bill Malone's "Sam the Bellhop" is based. I also found a very interesting magic card square routine that I was not aware of.

For anyone who likes clever card tricks which are based on subtleties, math and other clever ruses, this is a must read.

Ouija: billet-less name guess

Ross Tayler & Fraser Parker

Ouija: billet-less name guess by Ross Tayler & Fraser ParkerAs close to real billet-less name guess.

Imagine... In the course of a routine, during a close up performance, you get the spectator to focus on the name of someone close to them. They name a few random letters, including letters from the name. The name is not written down anywhere and exists only in their mind. And you instantly tell them the name they are thinking of.

This is exactly what you DO. There are no billets, tears or peeks. Simply the words you use and the illusion they create, are all you need to be able to accurately guess a name, most of the time. Like real mind reading,...

Cards and Strangers

Ronald Wood

Cards and Strangers by Ronald WoodCards and Strangers contains six effects that will make your audience sit up, take notice, and want more.

These effects aren't just magical. They are entertaining! And isn't that what we get paid for?

Every effect in this ebook has been set on rules! They must be entertaining, have not too many sleights (but NOT self working) and can be performed in the hands. All too often there isn't space on the table to perform or sometimes no table. As American magician Paul Lelekis states in the Forward.

"The number of tricks out there that can be performed completely in the hands can "fit on the head of...

Queens Quartet

Ronald Wood

Queens Quartet by Ronald WoodQueens Quartet is a 4 part routine that uses the Queens to find selected cards in different and novel ways.

The routine can be performed as three individual effects (the fourth effect doesn't work itself) or as a whole. In performing the routine as a whole, you will find that each effect has been created to lead automatically into the next one, producing an act that "flows" from start to finish.

You will need to be able to do the following techniques:

  • Magicians Choice force
  • Mock Pass
  • Braue Add On Move
  • Bro. John Hamman's Packet Switch

The Knight Billet

Ronald Levy & Devin Knight

The Knight Billet by Ronald Levy & Devin KnightA break through in billets that you need to know if you do billet effects.

Richard Osterlind is correct when he says that many mentalists stay away from Annemann's billet work because it seems hard to do. For most magicians and mentalists, it is difficult to do. They struggle with opening the Annemann billet in their pockets; they fumble and quickly give up. The basic idea is to switch a billet for a blank one and secretly open it in your pocket or behind a clipboard or book. This can be difficult with one hand, especially if you are using an Annemann billet.

That has all changed thanks to Ron Levy,...

Psychic Word Revelation

Psychic Word Revelation by Ronald Levy & Devin KnightA deck of 52 Alphabet cards is shuffled and handed to a participant to cut as many times as he wishes. The performer turns his back so he cannot see the cards or participant. The participant deals himself the top three alphabet cards face up and tries to make a three-letter word out of them. If those three cards cannot form a word, the participant is to discard those and deal himself another three cards. He is to try to form a word from the second group of three letters. The participant continues in this way, dealing himself three alphabet letters one at a time. When the participant deals a...

The NTE Principle is a self-working hands-off effect that can be done over a cell phone, in a room full of people or even over the radio for thousands of people at the same time. It's an amazing effect where people select a playing card, lose it into the deck and then the magician is able to locate the card without ever actually seeing the cards.

When Devin Knight was performing as a psychic, he did this trick over dozens of radio stations locating thousands of people's selected cards at the same...

36 Tricks With Fa-Ko Cards

Ronald Haines

36 Tricks With Fa-Ko Cards by Ronald HainesRonald Haines, through his business Haines House of Cards, sold a deck of gaffed cards called 'Fa-Ko' cards. This deck is not anymore available but perhaps you can find it second hand. However, now that it is very easy to make your own playing cards (see DIY Playing Cards) this collection has gained in value.

From the foreword

The gimmicked cards required are listed at the beginning of each effect. The regular cards needed must be removed from a regular matching pack.

This FA-KO Pack is not a toy for children, nor is it a collection of "self-working" tricks. It is a collection of professional secrets,...

Flip-M-Out

Ron Jaxon

Flip-M-Out by Ron JaxonHere is what Ron himself has to say about this ebook:

If I where asked to perform one trick to someone to show my ability as a close up magician. This routine is the one I’d show them. It’s my number one reputation making magic routine and I get more requests to perform “the coin trick” from both laymen and magicians then any other trick I perform. The reason for this is simple. It’s very powerful magic!

Here are a few reasons why:
  • The magic happens in the spectator’s hands.
  • It's done with common objects (coins)
  • Each phases seems more impossible then the one before. ...

Even when he tears the filter off, it magically appears back on the wrong end of the cigarette. Visually stunning and always gets laughs. Watch a demo video below.
