Put it into your CD player and listen to the instructions of Harry Blackstone. Your friends can follow along and be amazed. You only need readily available things like cards, coins, paper and pen.

Zingone's Recorded Card Tricks by Luis Zingone

This is a wonderful item in many respects. First, these three 78 rpm records and booklet, bound in a beautiful hard cover are quite rare. I have seen copies with missing instructions or broken records. Second, Zingone was a fast and smooth professional card manipulator. Being able to hear him speak and perform tricks accompanied by his voice is a treat. And third, the six tricks taught are excellent.

You will receive a PDF that includes the instructions, photos of the original box, and six audio clips embedded in the PDF, one for each trick. (You can also download the audio clips as stand...

Stephen King in his book Dance Macabre, a book that deals with horror in literature and film, pointed out that the only two kinds of movies which produced an audible reaction from an audience were comedy and horror.

It was Tony Shiels who pushed magic in the direction of horror and, long before magic-as-theatre became the latest fad, suggested that tricks could be made more entertaining if their presentations were more dramatic; perhaps a little out of the ordinary. Few took up the suggestion but those that did went on to found what is today known as Bizarre Magick; magic which involves those...
