Spell-binder was published for three years (36 issues) by Stephen Tucker and included the best close-up magic of that time. Collaborators included: Stephen himself with over 100 routines, David Britland, Peter Duffie, Wayne Dobson, Max Maven, Joe Digman and many more.
- PSEUDO (David Britland): You cut the deck three times finding an Ace each time. One more cut and a four appears. Counting down four cards you find the remaining Ace.
- MAHATMA (Stephen Tucker): A copper coin changes into a silver coin. Many applications are possible.
- REVOLVER (Simon Whitby): A spectacular way to produce Aces or selected cards.
- COUNTERFEIT (Joe Digman): A fancy method to false cut the entire deck of cards.
- HIGHLAND FLOP (Wayne Dobson): One card freely selected from a red-backed deck vanishes and reappears in the middle of a blue-backed deck.
- BINGE (David Britland): One of the most 'clean' versions of the standard sandwich effect where a card magically appears between two other cards.
- HALF AND HALF (Stephen Tucker): The most amazing visual restoration ever. One half of a card changes into a whole card which was, incidentally, the selection. What a great idea.
- LADIES IN WAITING (Peter Duffie): Two cards are freely selected and they reappear between three Queens that at the same time appear face up in the middle of the deck.
- CARDS OF THE GODS (David Britland): A freely selected card is revealed by a magical Ten reversed in the middle of the deck. Unique and versatile principle.
- PRINTING HISTORY (Max Maven): A packet printing effect, using only four cards. Four double-blank cards are printed one by one revealing a four-of-a-kind.
