Modern Miracles in Magic

Richard W. G. Van Ray

Modern Miracles in Magic by Richard W. G. Van RayNo matter if you're an amateur, semi-pro, or make your living from magic, there's gold in this ebook for performers of every ilk. Seventeen effects in all are included, ranging from card tricks to mental tests, to geek magic (such as you'd find in a carnival sideshow) and even a full-fledged illusion!

In the "Hammered Nails" effect, members of the audience are invited to drive several spikes or large nails into a trio of wooden boards with a sledgehammer. One of the boards is selected, and the performer - with his bare hands - pulls out the spike. This is "geek" magic at its best and an effect...

The Little Secrets

Frank Bonville

The Little Secrets by Frank BonvilleA great book on the tricks of the trade of professional gamblers, how they cheat and get an advantage in the game. From the introduction:
It has been my fortune, or misfortune, whichever you wish to term it, to have traveled a good deal and to have observed not a little. I have engaged in more than one business; it pleased my fancy, and can say, with a pardonable pride, that I have met with some degree of success. During the past few years of my life I have studied human nature in all its phases, from its lowest forms in the gutter, in the slums, in the gilded dens of vice, in the gambling...

Advanced Marketing

Brian T. Lees

Advanced Marketing by Brian T. LeesMarketing is the key to a magician's success. The amount of work he gets depends on how well he gets his name out. All of us use the common sources: newspaper, Facebook, direct mail, email and others. Many fail because they make their debut in these areas only to drop out and not keep them going.

Even with common sources covered there comes a time when magician's cast their eyes on higher income. At that point, the opinion is such that they must jump into expensive media. Newspapers, radio, television and others sound good. They should. It is a sales person presenting this information in...

A Magician's Swan Song

Will Goldston

A Magician's Swan Song by Will GoldstonAn autobiographical history of magic, profusely illustrated with diagrams of magic tricks and photographs of Goldston's career.

From the foreword by J. C. Cannell:

The exposures he makes range from the most spectacular and elaborate illusions to the smallest pocket trick. His book, indeed, is the alpha and omega of magic. He conceals nothing, hides no secrets.

The careful researches which I had to make in order to tell the public exactly how Houdini achieved his escapes and performed illusions which seemed like miracles, led me to think that I had exhausted all the resources of magic. But,...

Colorful Journey

Raphaël Czaja

Colorful Journey by Raphaël CzajaThis trick is also included in Knocked For Six.

The four aces are removed from a red backed deck. The Ace of Spades is placed on top of the red deck as the three other aces are lost one by one into a blue deck. After a magical gesture, the aces disappear from the blue backed deck and reappear on top of the red deck, under the Ace of Spades!

Excerpts from a few Magic Cafe reviews:

"How the aces "move" seems to confuse the spectator...and they have a weird look on their face, like "how is this possible!??". What I personally like about this one is that you end clean!!!"
