Harry Arons

How to Develop an Alarm Clock Mind by Harry AronsNow you can be like Jack Reacher, with an innate ability to wake yourself at a time of your choosing, as long as you "set" your internal clock before falling asleep. What an amazing ability! Here's a brilliant manuscript about auto-suggestion or self-hypnosis. Based upon actual experience.

Contains much information about this fascinating phase of hypnosis that can't be found elsewhere. Recommended for anyone interested in the possibilities of hypnotizing him- or herself.

From the Introduction by B. W. McCarron:

I was first exposed to the concept of the Alarm Clock Mind by reading about the exploits...

Commercial Gems Volume 1 by Mel Mellers3 professional performance pieces direct from Mel's repertoire.

1: Spin a yarn a commercial presentation hook for the classic 'Gypsy thread' (performed with wool/yarn) with a great comedy spiel. Includes sample script and gags.

2: Around the world with a pack of cards. An offbeat and entertaining way to present the 'Six card repeat', enhancing the repetitive structure of the effect.

3: Totally scattered. Is a real fooler that plays big. A shuffled deck of cards is given to the spectator and they cut and note a card they then shuffle the cards again and scatter them. Under these impossible...

George Miller Beard

Psychology of Spiritism by George Miller Beard

This article approaches spiritism from a scientific point of view including neurology and psychology. Beard's intention was to point out the failures of spiritualists and their lack of scientific understanding. He did this by criticizing how supporting evidence was gathered, mainly through testimony of human beings. However, Beard understood that the senses cannot always be trusted and that expert knowledge is crucial in deducing, explaining, and understanding the situation.

As the oracle gave place to the astrologer, the astrologer to the alchemist, the alchemist to the witch, the witch...

Scripted #34: Thumb Thing Fun by Larry Brodahl

An age old penetration of your own thumb using a string or chain has been revisited and reworked into a clever and deceptive trick. Simple. Easy to perform. Surrounded. No gimmicks, no gaffs.

A classic of magic we all learned early on and never do, as it's not a very good trick. Until now. The trick has been transformed into a very cute and clever brain teaser with nothing more than a little modified handling and some clever scripting.

Oscar Weigle

Color Scheme by Oscar Weigle

A wonderful self-working version of "Out of this world" with several variations.

A spectator forms a pattern of face-up and face-down cards which unaccountably separates the colors. This happens despite the spectator shuffling the cards repeatedly. An astounding color-divination effect, done in the spectator's own hands with unprepared cards. Nothing extra required. Complete with "in depth" notes and several variations in effect and presentation by Weigle himself, Martin Gardner and Clayton Rawson.

  • Quick. A packet of about twenty cards is used.
  • The spectator can freely cut a bunch of...

Brick Tilley

Fire Lantern by Brick TilleyA square-shaped paper chimney is ignited. When it has burned to a cinder the remaining ash floats mysteriously up to the ceiling before descending back to the performer's outstretched hand. Entirely safe and under the performer's control at all times. An excellent effect to be combined with fortune-telling or mentalism. A thing of subtle beauty.

ESPlosion Telempathy by Ken MullerTake your ESP card effects to a new dimension. This is a complete, multi-phase telempathy routine, that progresses from a simple match card effect to a magazine test, then a book test, then a more profound reveal of complex and detailed information - above and beyond expectations and traditional telepathy routines.

There is a bonus ESP card effect that will leave the audience speechless.

The 'explosion' is the belief in mind-to-mind communication.

This uses 'Once Removed' techniques and requires an ESP deck and book test familiarity.

200 Politically Correct One-Liner Jokes for Magicians by Wolfgang RiebeThe world has changed - radically! Being an entertainer and telling jokes has gone from 'having fun' with the audience to complaints about every possible issue. Political Correctness now rules. Whatever your view on the issue, the new reality is that all entertainers now need to be more aware than ever before not to offend an audience member. Hence the need for one-liner jokes that are non-political, non-religious, non-sexual, and just about non-everything.

As much as is humanly possible, jokes from past books and new ones have been combined in the ebook that will 'hopefully' not offend anyone....

Glass Through Hat by Robert MatthewsHere's a great club effect, where you are seen to pass a glass of water (or other liquid) through a handkerchief-covered hat. But wait! You can repeat it, which will blow away lay audiences and magicians alike.

The author's pet trick is revealed here, which uses no expensive dealer apparatus. Plus, he provides two methods, allowing you to repeat the effect, should you be called upon to do so. Sound good so far? What if we told you that this popular mystery can be performed impromptu? Now that would be real magic.

In this well-illustrated booklet, Matthews provides the step-by-step process...

George Miller Beard

A New Theory of Trance and its bearing on Human Testimony by George Miller BeardBeard distinguished several varieties of trance:
Trance may, for the sake of convenience of description, be divided into four varieties: the spontaneous, the self-induced, the emotional, and the intellectual trance.
He goes on to describe how these various forms of trance can be entered and he explains that the emotions through which trance is most likely to be excited, are fear, reverence, wonder, and expectation. He rejects the notion that trance is created by some force or fluid the operator emits and rather explains it as the brain is only partially awake and active while the other...

MindCAAN by Ali Foroutan

A hands-off card prediction at any number.

"No other method can achieve what your method achieves." - Dan Harlan

"To be honest, I would have more than one method to achieve the same effect, but - and this is a big BUT - Ali doesn't use any of them! So, it is indeed very clean and very fooling." - Jan Forster

Do we really need another 'Card At Any Number?!' We already have so many! So why would you be interested in this? It is a completely hands-off card at any number.

The deck of cards is in the spectator's hands. At no point do you touch the cards. You ask the spectator to think of any number between...
