Rose

Rose by Fraser ParkerRose continues the simple, bold and beautiful approach found in Fraser's limited edition False Messiah.

Fraser is now sharing, for the first time outside of his close circle of friends, his most up to date arrangement for guessing names and star signs completely prop-less.

You say a few lines of scripting and you are able to instantly divine practically anything the spectator is thinking of. Method and effect work seamlessly together to create a bold and beautiful deception that relies on fooling those who you perform for via perception.

No naming of letters, anagrams or running through...

Novel Publicity Ideas For Magicians

Novel Publicity Ideas For Magicians by Devin KnightPublicity is the lifeblood of any magician. No matter how skilled you are or how great your act is, unless people know about you, then there are no bookings. The theater remains empty. Publicity equals bookings and attendance for your public shows. It doesn't get any simpler than that.

Devin Knight (aka Jason Michaels) is a master of publicity. Thousands of stories about him have appeared in the media. The Associated Press even picked up some of his stories and spread them to thousands of newspapers worldwide.

Most magicians are aware of doing blindfolded drives and headline predictions,...

A unique and unconventional 'Psychic Detective' routine where the performer plays the detective and using an 'unusual clue' predicts the name of the criminal right in the beginning of the proceedings.

A random participant names a random 'victim' - straight from his imagination. Another random participant names a random 'witness' - again purely from his imagination. These names are chosen totally at random and out of the blue and there is absolutely no force involved. Then using the 'unusual clue' (which is in full view right...

The Ring of EOK

The Ring of EOK by Ken de CourcyAn amazing three part routine with a simple piece of rope and a borrowed ring.

The routine is in three parts. In Part I, a borrowed signet-ring is threaded on a rope, then penetrates it. Part II sees the ring again threaded and also knotted on the rope. Nevertheless, the ring visibly dissolves through leaving just the knot. In Part III the ring is threaded and knotted on the rope then a handkerchief is wrapped round it and the whole thing is held by a spectator. When instructed, he allows the handkerchief to drop to the floor to disclose an 'empty' rope; no ring ... not even a knot.

Explosive Comedy

Explosive Comedy by Val AndrewsStunts, Tricks and Gags with Flashes, Bangs and Surprises

From the introduction:

Joke-shops, novelty-stores... are packed with "explosive" and surprise items which have far too long been regarded as "practical jokes", when, in actual fact, they can be used to good advantage by magi and other entertainers.

This book is divided into three main sections..."BANGS"..."FLASHES" and "SURPRISES"! Maybe I have cheated a little in the items I have included in the latter section...but they were all good, and had no other place to go! Now that you have this book, I'm going to watch you pretty...

B'tween

B'tween by David DevlinDavid Devlin has floored everyone he has shown this incredible effect. Even members of his family were nailed. This is an amazing piece of mental magic. Based on an array of different effects and principles, this is certain to go into your working repertoire. It is self-working and can even be performed impromptu (at least the majority of the effect can be performed impromptu)!

The effect is this: A deck is shuffled, and two predictions are made on the backs of two business cards. One is a number and the other is the name of a playing card. Two spectators deal cards in turn until they each...

Crazy Clock

Crazy Clock by Maurice JanssenYou show a flat paper clock with missing numbers, numbers in the wrong locations, tilted at different angles. You have a prediction which sits out the entire time. You show a small packet of facedown cards, give them a shuffle and place them around the clock, next to the hours. Your volunteer calls out a number (or rolls a die) from 1 - 6 and begins counting from that number around the clock. They eliminate the card at that number and continue eliminating until only one card remains - which matches your prediction. For an added bonus, you show the eliminated cards faces are all the same......BLANK. ...

The Gambling Magician

The Gambling Magician by B. W. McCarronFrom the Introduction:
Within the pages of this volume, the reader will find many effects which may easily be incorporated into a program of exposes, or as part of a manipulative act. None of the effects discussed in the first section require sleights more difficult than the doublelift. Many a performer will want to credit the occurrences to his own skill - even though none is involved. While at no time should the Lecturer attribute the happenings to "magic", a fairly plausible cause is sleight-of-hand.

Sight Unseen Revelations

Sight Unseen Revelations by Devin KnightFrom the lost files of Jason Michaels comes one of the most devious and baffling psychic card routines every invented!

It is a four-phase routine in which you locate selected cards SIGHT UNSEEN. It was one of the most talked about feats of Jason Michaels and even fooled the skeptics. This appears in print for the first time.

Jason never liked using blindfolds except for blindfolded drives and even then he put newspaper over the windshield. The reason for this is that no matter how clever or deceptive a blindfold is, there are always people who still think somehow you can see through it....

Spook Crooks!

Spook Crooks! by Julien J. ProskauerSpook Crooks! is Julien Proskauer's searing expose of the world of phony prophets, fake mediums, and other con artists who fleeced innocent victims of their cash, dignity and in some cases their lives.

Proskauer, a friend of Houdini's, took it upon himself to nearly single-handedly rid the radio airwaves of fortune tellers and psychic swindlers in the early 1930s, much to the chagrin of honest mentalists who were caught in the crossfire.

A slick billet switch, the gypsy money switch, and many other secrets are revealed in crystal clear text and illustrations.
