Magic in a Game

John Palfreyman

Magic in a Game by John PalfreymanFrom the Foreword by Ali Bongo:
So the telephone rings and the client says ... "Can you provide two hours entertainment?" ... "Of course!" ... you say, doing a quick bit of mental arithmetic to double your normal fee. Having confirmed the booking, you make a bee-line for the book-shelf to search for this book. Because this book ... plus a few bits and bobs ... will furnish the wherewithal for that extra hour of entertainment.

Think of the advantages! You need only do one show in an afternoon instead of two ... no mad dash when the first show runs late ... less packing ... less wear and tear on...

1415AD

Unknown Mentalist

1415AD by Unknown MentalistThis is an introductory price and will go up to $12 on March 19, 2018.

This year, 2018, marks the 100th anniversary of a fantastic principle which was first proposed in 1917. Although, many performers are unaware of this today, here are a few hard hitting card mentalism routines based on this fantastic principle combined with what I would like to call "Multiple Ins" principle (as opposed to the well known Multiple Outs principle). Well, the intention is to continue the suspense about what this principle is, into the first few pages of this ebook.

There are 3 stunning routines, several...

Optical Opener

David Devlin

Optical Opener by David DevlinA good opener that is intriguing, has a huge visual impact, quick, easy, and can be performed regardless of the size or the style of the show is not always easy to come by. The Optical Opener from David Devlin fits all of those conditions. It is an opener that requires no technical skills, is visually mystifying, entertaining, and will have even you saying, "Whoa! That is so cool!"

This routine employs an optical illusion that creates a photo that visually changes as it is turned over. David has created not one, but nine different illusion photos that you can use to perform this routine....

Nothing has been kept out of this book. Here you will find the cream of Billy's own routines, each one polished to a thing of beauty by a great deal of study and thought, and then by repeated performance before the paying public.

Basic Training for Breakfast

Ian Kendall

Basic Training for Breakfast by Ian KendallFrom the introduction:
Magic lectures, and more relevantly their notes, are a strange thing. While some are an endless parade of tricks and their explanations, some are thinly disguised dealer dems and some are virtuoso displays of unattainable sleight of hand, there are occasionally lectures that offer the inside information on performing for real people. Where it's not just the tricks that matter, it's all the little bits and pieces that lie in between the lines that make the difference between 'doing a trick' and 'making magic happen'. Guess which one I'm aiming for here.

The goal is...

If Necessity is the Mother of Invention, we have the answer to the volume of offbeat magical effects which have emanated from the brains of these two enthusiasts in recent years, for living so far from magic activities (except those they have themselves organised) and magic dealers, they have been forced, in their desire to keep up-to-date, to originate their own effects. For several years the contribution of Les Sharps have been features of the British Ring Parade in each Christmas "Linking Ring", and in addition...

The Master Sealed Letter Reading Act by Robert A. NelsonA convincing, "real time" method of reading sealed messages, as employed by fraudulent mediums and psychics.

A strictly one man feature. The psychic passes among the audience, handing out small, unprepared envelopes containing a blank card. On these cards, spectators write their name and questions, then carefully seal them inside the envelope. The mentalist now collects the envelopes, never allowing them to get out of sight of the writers.

The performer or medium now holds the envelopes to his or her forehead, first calling out the writer's name, then proceeding to answer the spectator's...
