Fantastric by Bob Hummer

From the title, you'd guess that this is a fantastic trick. It's not. It's a true miracle of psychic entertainment! Here is an incredible mental miracle involving a deck of playing cards, which may be borrowed.

A spectator shuffles the cards as much or as little as she desires. She deals a number of cards onto the table (a free choice).

Dr. RaMayne's Spirit Manifestations by Robert A. Nelson

Weird, eerie and baffling pseudo spirit manifestations are easy to accomplish with very little preparation or expense, once you know how.

That was the first line of Nelson's catalog ad for this nearly impossible to find manuscript, detailing the methods of fake mediums and con artists who presented seances to bilk the public. Why is this title so hard to find? Primarily because it was only advertised in three of the Nelson Enterprises catalogs. Some feel that the methods were used to spawn new fraudsters, instead of being used to inform the innocent public. Others believe that Nelson was...

Psychological Reading

Psychological Reading by Robert A. Nelson

NOTE: This reading is also contained in the Nelson book, Confessions of a Medium.

Amaze any spectator, even one whom you've not met before, by giving an in-depth character reading that reveals psychological insights your client hasn't shared with anyone.

Spectators are more readily convinced by fortune tellers, and the like, if the reader begins the reading without first asking a lot of questions. In other words, the psychic gives the reading "from the cradle to the grave," as though the spectator's life were the pages of an open book.

No sooner does the client enter the room, then immediately the reader...
