Al Mann
Al Mann on Mentalism by Al Mann

Al Mann was one of the most creative minds in mentalism. Author of over hundred pamphlets with such intriguing titles as 'The Tesseract', 'Page of Swords', 'The Kolophon', 'Acidus Plus' Martin Breese managed to persuade him to make an audio recording in order that mentalists may get to know him better. You will hear Al Mann describe how he first became involved with magic. He details some of his experiences and early influences and describes an effect which is seldom seen today - reading a message in the dark.

Bert Reese is discussed and his methods described. Al knew Dunninger and often...

Barry Wiley
The Piddingtons by Barry Wiley

During the Summer of 1949 on BBC radio a young couple from Australia started broadcasting in London what seemed to be genuine feats of mindreading and telepathy. The whole of Britain was stunned as messages were transmitted from BBC headquarters to places such as the Tower of London or an underwater diving bell.

Despite the long range, Sydney and Lesley Piddington were apparently able to communicate with each other in a way that defied explanation. The exact methods used have never been revealed and although many magicians claim to know exactly how they worked their act an explanation is...
