Chris Congreave

Diception by Chris CongreaveShowing that your deck is mixed and ordinary, you also show a card with a prediction written on the back. The spectator chooses a card completely at random, by rolling 1, 2 or 3 dice. You deal to their number (no force). When you reveal the prediction you have not only predicted their chosen card, but also what number they rolled on the dice.

You will need a blue and a red deck (or any two decks with matching faces but different backs) to make this yourself. No arts and craft, just a sharpie and a bit of writing. The dice are optional. You can use real dice, you can use a dice app on your...

Raphaël Czaja

True Lies by Raphaël CzajaOne of the cleanest procedures imaginable at the service of a very fair impromptu prediction effect.

Impromptu. Easy to do. Instant reset.

Eugene E. Gloye

Table Book II by Eugene E. GloyeA beautifully illustrated ebook on tables and side stands for you to build. Gene Gloye uses the tag line, "without drapes", because all the tables described are used in many ways, but without cloth drapes.

The ebook begins with several pages of discussion on stage furniture and its possibilities, with illustrated advice on transporting it, plus storing it. The various multi-panel and single panel tables described in detail, with easy to follow building plans, often have diabolically clever "black art wells" and other secret devices. A "Night Club Table" is so simple and so useful, and so...

Thomas A. Sawyer

Victorian-Age Conjuring Books by Thomas A. Sawyer

A guide for collectors and bibliographers.

This is the first digital-edition of the third edition of Thomas A. Sawyer's Victorian-Age Conjuring Books: A Guide. The first printing of the third edition was a softcover printed book, published in late 2017. That printing consisted of less than 60 copies.

This edition is significantly longer (in terms of the number of words) than the second edition (which itself was longer than the first edition).

In preparing the third edition, Sawyer thoroughly overhauled the second edition (which appeared over 25 years ago), making additions and deletions....

Thomas A. Sawyer

Rethinking S.W. Erdnase by Thomas A. SawyerThis is the first digital-edition of Thomas A. Sawyer's Rethinking S.W. Erdnase, which was first published in a small hardcover-edition (of about 105 copies) in late 2015.

The book has an in-depth discussion of different approaches that might be considered in attempting to figure out who S.W. Erdnase was. Many people probably tend to "shoot from the hip," and to use intuition and common sense. Those are not necessarily the best tools available.

Rethinking S.W. Erdnase includes a fair amount of information regarding Frederic J. Drake & Co., including images relating to the 1912 Drake catalog...

Scripted #28: Lassoing a Card by Larry Brodahl

How to lasso a chosen card. Complete methodology as well as script and performance video included. Full performance rights allowed.

It is a version that makes sense. The magician explains that as a child at summer vacation, he learned how to lasso mosquitoes, and he got so good at it, that he learned to actually snap the knot for the lasso onto the rope mid-air. And he thought he'd turn that skill into a trick.

The magician has a card selected. This card is returned to the deck and shuffled by the spectator. After some byplay, the magician drops the cards into a paper bag, puts one end...

Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

Card Corner in Phone by Ralf (Fairmagic) RudolphEffect: The performer shows a video that displays various card values. A spectator mentally selects one, then mentally tears off a corner of the selected card, and that card corner appears in the phone.

To perform this effect all you need is a phone that can play back an MP4 video. This is not an app and can therefore be performed on pretty much any modern smart phone. Please note that in most cases the card corner will appear in the video that is played back. In some cases the card corner will materialize as actual card corner.

Kartenecke im Handy by Ralf (Fairmagic) RudolphEffekt: Der Künstler zeigt ein Video in dem die verschiedensten Kartenwerte aufgezeigt werden. Ein Zuschauer wählt davon einen gedanklich aus, reisst davon gedanklich eine Ecke ab, und diese erscheint im Handy.

Sie brauchen für diesen Effekt lediglich ein Handy dass ein MP4 Video abspielen kann. Es ist also keine app und kann damit auf jedem moderneren Handy vorgeführt werden. In den meisten Fällen erscheint die Kartenecke im abgespielten Video, in anderen Fällen materialisiert sich die Ecke und erscheint als tatsächliche Spielkartenecke.

Linxed by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

Apparently link two cards in an ad hoc impromptu appearing fashion.

Effect: You take two cards and openly tear from each two rectangular windows. This leaves a frame and a center beam in each card. Then you magically link them at the center beam. At the end you separate them again and hand out both cards as souvenirs. The cards will show no tear in the center beam or around the frame. Everybody will wonder how you were able to link them. There is no secret exchange of cards. The two cards you start with are the two cards you end with.

This effect is best done in an off-hand impromptu setting...

Cold Calls for Performance by Brian T. Lees

An approach to turn drive by cold calls into contracts for performances.

The hardest part of promoting our magic is making cold calls. As part of business, cold calls are done to get our name out. The goal is to prompt hiring committees/individuals to reach out to us before they open the doors to floods of entertainers searching for work.

This text will provide sample approaches, materials you need on hand and ways to introduce yourself to organizations. The focus is on your information and potentials your magic can support/enhance their events. A good cold call will place you in front...
