DIYCAAN

Raphaël Czaja

DIYCAAN by Raphaël CzajaFrom the creator of SCAMP, ACOCAVAN and 2D-ACAIN comes a fresh, original and effortless take on the Any Card At Any Number plot. It uses ordinary cards and can be performed hands-off (anyone can deal the cards at the end instead of the magician). Best of all, an impromptu version is also explained.

The magician introduces his performance by claiming: "The secret for this effect to be a success is for you to be both instinctive and lucky. I will guide you but just keep in mind that one card more or one card less will make all the difference."

The spectator cuts off the deck and silently counts his cards to...

Label Flash

Ralf Rudolph (Fairmagic)

Label Flash by Ralf Rudolph (Fairmagic)A bottle label magically penetrates the glass and is attached on the inside of the bottle.

Effect: Write down a prediction, for example a playing card. Since you have no piece of paper you write the prediction on the label of a cola bottle. Then have a spectator take a card from your deck (yes folks, you will need to force the card). And then reveal that you have correctly predicted the card. To give the spectator a little souvenir you sign the bottle label. On further thought you want to make it even more special. Take out your lighter, burn the label and suddenly the label with the prediction...

Five Easy Pieces

Jon Racherbaumer

Five Easy Pieces by Jon RacherbaumerThe five easy "pieces" in this manuscript are relatively easy to do. The important aspect, however, is how they are combined. The tricks are not the tricky part. They can be broken down into basic, understandable action steps. Or, to put it another way, tricks are to magic books as recipes are to cook books. One should not then equate plans, schemes, or sets of instructions with hale and hearty presentations. This is the reason the extended presentation in this manuscript surpasses mere exposition. Besides explaining the action steps of five otherwise grab-bag tricks, it reveals how they have...

Diminishing Not Likely

Paul Gordon

Diminishing Not Likely by Paul GordonSpectator freely chooses a card. The performer looses the card in the deck and takes the top 4 cards, and then shows each of the four cards as being the chosen card. Weird. For the finale the four cards turn into the four aces. A fast and very visual routine.

Copwaked

Paul Gordon

Copwaked by Paul GordonYou start out with four red backed Aces of Clubs, shown individually from the back and front. One of the Aces changes to a Queen of Hearts. The Queen of Hearts jumps to various places in the pack. For the climax all four cards change to the Queen of Hearts and also the backs change to blue backs. Does not use any gimmicked or gaffed cards. Can be done with jumbo cards as Paul demonstrates in the video.

Vampira

Gloria Palmer

Vampira by Gloria PalmerOne of the very few magic acts designed for a woman, but this one is a honey. Based on the Charles Adams cartoons, the character of Vampira is indicated by the sketch. The magic she does is quite simple and mostly standard, but the presentation is wild and horrendous, and what you'd expect from a Vampire. Once the material is assimilated, the tricks could be changed to suit the individual. All patter and presentation is given, plus the details of the wonderful costume and make up, also music, lighting, etc. With a little work, the idea can be transferred to a male character. Great for Halloween,...

Hanussen's Demise

Scott Creasey

Hanussen's Demise by Scott CreaseyErik Jan Hanussen was an Austrian Jewish, hypnotist, mentalist, occultist, astrologer and clairvoyant performer who in his role as the man who predicted the rise and fall of Adolf Hitler, became known as the prophet of the Third Reich.

In 1930 during a court case in which Hanussen stood accused of professional misrepresentation and fraud, Erik declared the only way to break what was proving to be a judicial logjam, was for him to recreate his psychic experiments live in the court room. The following day he presented a routine which would dramatically change the remainder of his life, he...

Psychic Magic

Ormond McGill

Psychic Magic by Ormond McGillThis ebook is an edited and slightly abridged version of material which originally appeared as "Psychic Magic" in six volumes. From the preface by Percy Abbott:
In 1937, Ormond McGill wrote a group of articles for Tops under the title of "the psychic circle." the continued respect which this series has enjoyed through the years speaks volumes for both the vitality of Mr. McGill's writing and for magicians' interest in psychic magic. And yet, such interest is but natural, for the whole art of the conjurer is based on a love of performing the impossible and knowing the unknowable, and who more than magicians...
