Paul Harris
Paul Harris in Las Vegas Close-Up by Paul Harris

This book has long become a classic for close-up magicians. I have acquired a box as part of a larger deal and am pricing it ridiculously low. If you already have this book buy three more copies and hand them out as gifts. Your friends will love you. (Please note that while these are not used books, they are not necessarily in pristine condition. Some rubbing and chaffing on the covers, and the cover print is at times not perfect.)

1st edition 1978; 150 pages.

The Magic of Fred Robinson by Peter Duffie

Now available as a PDF ready for immediate download.

"Peter Duffie's The Magic Of Fred Robinson is a wonderful book containing a gold-mine of ideas, subtleties and secrets from one of magic's finest exponents and thinkers. ... The Magic Of Fred Robinson is an excellent book full of wonderful ideas, useful sleights, and powerful effects. More than that, it's a great read and takes me back to the feeling I had when I first read Vernon's Inner Secrets books." - R. Paul Wilson from his 2009 review in Genii.

Peter Duffie
Close-Up to the Point by Peter Duffie

This was Peter Duffie's first solo book published on the heels of his hugely successful Alternative Card Magic and Contemporary Card Magic.

It includes mostly card routines with a couple of coin routines sprinkled in for good measure. The effects are not difficult to do and can be classified as intermediate. Some routines require palms, half passes and riffle passes.

It is a joy if one can study the early creative output of one of the most accomplished card magician alive today.

Subtle Miracles by Peter Duffie

Peter Duffie is one of the world's most creative cardmen and Subtle Miracles gathers together some of his most inventive work. Many of these effects were marketed as exclusive manuscripts (Solo, Duet, Trio, Quartet, Double Indemnity) and are now brought together for the first time, together with a selection of brand new routines using equally clever methods. David Britland contributed a routine called 'Red Alert' as well as added notes commenting on Peter's routines. An appendix teaches a couple of important sleights.

Despite the numerous times I have seen Ron and Nancy Spencer present their act it has never palled, the freshness and apparent spontaneity of their interaction (not to mention the challenge for the magician of endeavouring to detect their methods!) has captured the imagination.

This little collection of Annemann material, which was published in 1939, measures up to the high standard of excellence that has made Annemann's name synonymous with magical feats of great ingenuity. The thirteen items presented here may be described briefly as follows:

Ted Annemann
Sh-h-h--! it's a secret by Ted Annemann

Annemann describes a wealth of forty pieces in this wonderful booklet. The first, "Call me up sometime" is a beautifully direct telephone miracle. This is a prime example of Annemann's mantra of 'effect before method'.

I found the following line from Annemann's introduction funny:

I like to do these things so well that someday I'm going to write a twenty page introduction and follow it with one trick! Trouble is, however, that after that harangue the trick will HAVE to be good.

Terri Rogers
Boromian Link by Terri Rogers

This booklet details Terri Rogers' Boromian Link an incredible linking card effect based on Paul Harris' Immaculate Connection. The Harris original is a great impromptu effect but if you are not working impromptu and can use your own cards then you'll find Terri Rogers' method even better. The linking effect looks excellent and in fact fools those familiar with the Harris original. The effect can be performed with any size cards and looks quite spectacular if done with Jumbo cards.

Terri Rogers
Star Gate by Terri Rogers

An incredible effect based on a topological principle. Two cards are shown glued back to back. The spectator may examine them as there is nothing to find.

The performer takes the cards, gives them a few deft folds and then hands them back to the spectator ... but now the cards are face to face. It looks impossible because the cards are still glued together. What's more, they are the same cards that the spectator handled earlier. There is no switch of any kind.

You won't believe it yourself the first time you perform it.

[Note: Originally this booklet was supplied with a Jumbo cards already prepared and glued together. This ebook comes without a set of glued cards. However, the ebook has clear explanation of the construction. You can prepare a set from regular cards with a knife and tape in a few minutes.

1st edition 1985, 1st digital edition 2013, 11 pages.

[Below is a demonstration where the two cards are oriented in the same direction and not 90 degree rotated like Terri has originally designed it. The advantage of a 90 degree offset is that the card that is folded can at one time be seen partly from the front and partly from the back which is a very magical moment. This moment is missing from this version.]

Amazing Unfaked Book Test by Val Andrews
"A brilliant and versatile principle that has stood the test of time." Ian Rowland
This is an unbelievable book test. Just imagine taking a modern book; perhaps a best seller in the bookshops right now. The book is genuine and is completely unfaked in any way. You can even ask a member of the audience or perhaps someone on a radio show that you will be talking to, to bring along a copy of the Da Vinci Code or whatever you choose to use. Or you could do this impromptu with any book as long as you have a couple of minutes private time with the book.

You have the book examined and you ask...
