(Benny) Ben Harris & Steve Shufton
X-Ray by (Benny) Ben Harris & Steve Shufton

A plot by Ben Harris with a solution by Steve Shufton and an out by Felix Schellenberg.

"Ben Harris and Steve Shufton's X-Ray is, I think, one of the three best card effects to come out this decade. It's so unbelievably smart, and I use it all the time." - Joshua Jay

"A wonderfully clear cut plot. This is very powerful and appears utterly impossible." - Marc Paul

From the introduction:

When I was young, my uncle Peter fooled me badly with a simple X-Ray Vision stunt. It played serious havoc with my developing mind. Pete had been using his X-Ray Vision to "see through" the table top in order to identify how many fingers I was holding...

Starman by (Benny) Ben Harris

This is a stand-alone version from the book, Run Silent, Run Deep. Complete with full assembly instructions and full performance instructions. Simply print out the glorious color templates to create your own STAR DECK.

This effect DOES NOT require the use of Silent Running (although it can be enhanced with it). So, you do not need SR, or RSRD. This is completely self-contained. The clever deck does ALL the work for you.

It's a lovely effect where your spectator predicts an amazing moment in human history. That is, the moment of FIRST CONTACT with alien beings. Your audience member will predict the year, the month and the...

Solid Gold Easy Action by (Benny) Ben Harris

This is one of Ben Harris's favorite effects. Released in 1987, it featured heavily in his lectures across the '87-89 period and was a total sell-out at the major magic conventions, or whenever demonstrated.

In effect, a small envelope is shown, signed on BOTH sides by a spectator, and then left IN FULL VIEW upon the table. A card is now FREELY selected from the deck, and also signed. The spectator pushes his card squarely into the deck and then counts the cards. Mysteriously, his card has vanished. There are now just 51 cards in the deck.

The envelope, which has been in FULL VIEW the...

Slink by (Benny) Ben Harris

Use any Russian Wedding Band (for example search 'Russian Wedding Ring' on Amazon)

This type of ring has three bands, linked together. You need to purchase one of them.

Ultimate Floating Deck 2.0 by (Benny) Ben Harris

The Ultimate Floating Deck or UFD was first published in 1984. Since then it has spurned many variations. The current manuscript has been refined and re-written. This brings the effect right up to date by cutting out the superfluous "1980's handlings". Consider this some serious "house cleaning" after twenty six years!

Now, the structure is linear and smooth--from the selection to the levitation. Clean, smooth, direct.

A card is selected and returned to the deck. It is given a quick all-around-square-up, and then placed on the palm. On command, the top half of the deck floats. First a...

TacTics by (Benny) Ben Harris

2002 and a small lecture tour. Harris needed an oddity that would contrast his card work. Some visual and aural distraction. TacTics was the answer. 150 units were assembled, fingers burned, and instructions written. The item was quite popular and did end up in an issue of Genii. Here is the original manuscript, re-edited and with clear photos. Ideas with color-changes, sound-based illusion and the "Milk Pitcher" application allowing you to vanish tictacs, half a container at a time, till they're ALL GONE!

5th Corner by (Benny) Ben Harris

A flash back to 1987 and a "long lost" manuscript, seen by only ten: Jerry Andrus, David Britland, Jeff Busby, Dave Faulkner, David Harkey, Ed Marlo, Dan McArthy, Harvey Rosenthal, Jay Sankey and Mark Trudinger, made it's brief, and only appearance... then, it was gone!

So what is the 5th Corner? It's a splash of ideas and techniques with a single playing card and it's ripped corners. You are both "one ahead" and "two behind" at the SAME TIME. This charming but annoying attribute is what probably led to the stony silence heard by the author in 1987. Can YOU make head-way with this strange and bizarre single-card oddity? Why...

Alida: Little Winged One by (Benny) Ben Harris
"A cool and animated levitation of a card or dollar bill... EASY TO MAKE!"
My goodness, this little effect created a shit-storm when it was released in 2000! I don't think the attacks had been so brutal since Cosmosis (in the mid 1980s). Anyway, this simple and effective idea was loved by some (see, for example, Richard Kaufman in Genii Magazine), and hated by others (see, for example, Michael Close in Magic Magazine). Ben relishes dividing opinion, and Alida certainly did that.

However, it was also a genuine stepping stone in the thought processes that would eventually lead to Enlightenment: The Ultimate Floating Card - which is way superior. So, controversial...

Here is a collection of professional ideas and approaches with the PSI Sharpie Pen. If you are in agreement with the author that the advertised effect of making the pen spin 360 degrees is possibly "a bit over the top" then you'll love the subtle approaches here.

Bands of Gold by (Benny) Ben Harris
"Ben's Band Book is some of the best band and card magic ever. Some could be plucked out and used as single trick downloads. As with every Ben Harris ebook of wonder, it's beautifully laid out with lots of photos to help you along. Highly recommended. ***** 5/5 Stars" - Jamie Daws
The opening trick in this gorgeous ebook is just cool. A mini bet in which 2 bands are shown around the card case width ways. One will win the spectator $100 and the other one will win the magician $100. One is selected by the spectator without equivoque. Of course it's just a normal band. The other is removed and there...

Fandango by (Benny) Ben Harris

Released in 1985, Fandango became a cornerstone for a variety of card "printing" and "sandwich" routines that would later be developed by the author. Here is the original manuscript with original photographs teaching this instant and highly visual sandwich concept.

In effect, a signed card instantly appears between two Jokers. Classic "Sandwich Plot," but the method is what differentiates this. Fandango allows you to propel the selected card into position between the Jokers.

It's instant and visual. Both the original gimmicked and non-gimmicked handlings are explained and illustrated. ...

Oil and Water Delux by (Benny) Ben Harris

This effect appears described briefly, yet adequately, in the Singapore Lecture Notes. This is a more thorough description and is accompanied by clear photographs, making it easier to learn.

The routine uses four black cards, and four red cards. Interlaced three times, they always separate. The moves used are smooth and create a lovely illusion. It does not look like sleight of hand, it really looks quite convincing! Heavily based in Marlo's work.

Singapore Lecture Notes by (Benny) Ben Harris

Ben Harris' first set of lecture notes from his first ever lecture in 1985— re-written, re-photographed...

These notes have been re-written and re-photographed. The material is bright, crisp and hard-hitting. Mostly cards, including a wonderful multi-phase OIL AND WATER routine that's a joy to perform. PYRAMID CARDS is an easy and visual stunt revelation that was originally created by Jay Sankey. Here are a couple of cool variations. COMING TOGETHER AGAIN is a real killer item based on a Sadowitz piece from Almanac (see demo video below).

The real highlight is the closer Ben used on both nights in Singapore....

Cosmosis: The original floating match by (Benny) Ben Harris

"...at last, the originator explains his classic micro-levitation in complete detail — a digital first..."

Invented in 1986, and marketed as Cosmosis by Ben Harris, this effect has become one of the most pirated close-up creations in magic's recent history. It truly has become a "classic." Even today, twenty-three years after its debut, unscrupulous individuals and manufacturers in many countries market it without any due respect for its heritage or compensation for its creator. From street stalls in India and across Asia, to the high streets of London and Paris, you'll find this effect...

"Mind expanding magic in every sense..." - Michael Ammar

Hole in the Head created a furor when released to the general magic community. Originally worked up as a situational piece for a David Blaine TV special, the general market place would have nothing of something as esoteric. No, you had to be able to pull it out of a baggie and stumble through it for a street...

Epic Flight by (Benny) Ben Harris

The odd scientific principle discovered by Harris in 1980 makes an amazing coin transposition possible!

Two coins are displayed. One is marked with a large cross with a permanent marker and a spectator confirms that the cross will not rub off the coin. In full view, the marked coin and the plain coin transpose through the back of a spectator’s own hand.

Fully examinable, easy to do. The scientific principle makes it all work.

Hoodwink by (Benny) Ben Harris
"I highly recommend this to all of you who are interested in learning a devilishly clever approach to TORN & RESTORED CARD" - Danny Orleans (Genii Magazine)
Hoodwink is based on the author's own effect, "Prime Hole Card" from 1983. It became a best-seller when re-released in 1999. Everyone was concentrating so hard on complex quarter-at-a-time restorations, that Hoodwink, with it's stunning flash restoration, seemed like a breath of fresh air.

Hoodwink is not designed to replace, or to in any way compete with, the fine crop of "quarter by quarter" restorations that are making the rounds. Instead,...

This and That by (Benny) Ben Harris

The best-seller from 1986 is back.

You predict in advance which card will be named! Easy and fun.

This and That was a big seller back in the mid 1980's when the "Oscar" and "Phil" craze were at their peaks.

A spectator names any card (free choice) and you display that your deck has marked backs. They are all marked like "THIS" you say as you display cards in the deck as having the word "THIS" written on it's back. That's every card, but one. The selected card, on the other hand, has the word "THAT" written on it's back. Proving you know "this from that!"

Super easy to make at home...
