Spook Crooks!

Julien J. Proskauer
Spook Crooks! by Julien J. Proskauer

Spook 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.

Nelson Enterprises Catalog 6

Robert A. Nelson
Nelson Enterprises Catalog 6 by Robert A. Nelson

Robert Nelson and his brother Larry ("Alla Rageh") started the Nelson Enterprises in 1921. Their first "catalogs" were printed on thin, onion-skin paper. By 1927, their catalog boasted over a hundred effects and books, catering almost exclusively to the mental fraternity.

This catalog is nearly impossible to find, being jealously hoarded by mentalists and collectors. Now reprinted in convenient eBook format, the Nelson Enterprises Catalogue Number Six is once again available to expand the mind of performers of every ilk.

Because catalog printing techniques of the 1920s were not meant to...

Mediums Unmasked

Mediums Unmasked by Julia E. Garrett

This is the true story of a former Spiritualist Medium who decided to come clean and spill the real work. What is most interesting is that most of the demonstrations use chutzpah, not necessarily repurposed magic gimmicks, to make them work. While doing research, McCarron also found some very entertaining information from old news stories that he has sprinkled here and there, as well as a scathing editorial of Mrs. Garrett's book from a Spiritualistic newspaper.

Whether it's consumed for the story aspect, or for those who want to assemble their own séance routines, we believe this belongs...

Blue Book 1960 by KC Card Co

Just 15 years after WWII, life was good. As the world rebuilt itself, prosperity reigned. Returning soldiers who needed an outlet to keep their competitive edge found what they were looking for in gambling. Neighborhood poker games, back-alley craps, and illegal casinos were everywhere if you knew where to look. Grifters followed the money trail, too, and not all of them relied on skill. Many used devices such as holdouts, shiners, gaffed cards and crooked dice to ensure that they fleeced the lambs just as surely as if the marks openly handed their cash to the swindler.

Catering to the demand...
