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...

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,...

Tricks for the Few

Lance Charles

Tricks for the Few by Lance CharlesHere's a terrific book containing ten tricks, using cards, a magic wand, rope, and other items associated with the magic arts. Most of the effects require no special apparatus. What little is needed can easily be constructed. We think modern performers will really enjoy the card rise, where the action takes place with a borrowed deck! Also of interest will be "Through the Five-Spot," which is an impossible solid-through-solid effect where a five of spades visibly melts through the center of the magician's wand.

We've especially had fun performing the ball bearing mental test, which is a great...

Effervescent Effects

Julius Hopkins

Effervescent Effects by Julius HopkinsHere's a book that belongs on every magician's digital shelf. Inside you'll find 48 effects, tips and suggestions for close-up and club performers.

One of our favorites is the "Ring and Balloon Problem," as we can see it being used to win bar bets. Especially if you use an engagement or wedding patter story with your spectator. "Dollar Discernment" is also exceptionally clever as a mental test. We believe entertainers will make great use of it for those situations where they are asked to perform and have no props with them. Good stuff.
