Thrilling Magic

Leonard H. Miller
Thrilling Magic by Leonard H. Miller

From author's note:

The feats of miracle workers - fire eaters, sword swallowers, barehand spike drivers, etc. - have been proclaimed far and wide, but little has been written in explanation of their feats or otherwise detailing the secrets of performance. These secrets have been jealously guarded by the practitioners of these miracles and they have seen fit to pass them on to only a limited few.

Please note that these stunts are dangerous and involve toxic and otherwise harmful substances. We are offering this ebook for historical and informational purposes. Anybody who experiments with...

Unique "Thought Card" Discovery

Howard P. Albright
Unique "Thought Card" Discovery by Howard P. Albright

You reveal a freely thought card.

EFFECT: Spectator freely selects several cards from his own shuffled deck and thinks of one. Those are returned and mixed in the pack. By means of "tuned thought-waves" the performer discovers the very card spectator is thinking of and, either names it dramatically, or causes it to obey his command in a distinctly "unique" manner. A real mental mystery.

Remember:

  • No advance preparation
  • The card is really only thought
  • Free choice without any force
  • Cards can be borrowed
  • Very subtle method…you will love it.

Cut and Restored Silk

Phoa Yan Tiong
Cut and Restored Silk by Phoa Yan Tiong

Phoa Yan Tiong performed this clever effect in his cabaret act and it never fails to produce a gasp of amazement.

Effect: A handkerchief becomes visibly restored after being cut in half and the halves held well apart to prove that no trickery is involved. Indeed there is no trickery in the cutting, for both halves are quite separate. The effect has proved a great hit also, in the act of Will Ayling who used a regular linen handkerchief for its performance.

Phoa used to demonstrate and explain a version of this trick in the lecture he gave to Magical Societies and at Conventions, but the method he...
