Paul Hallas

Card Magic for the Enthusiast by Paul Hallas
"This is loaded with stuff that is both simple to do and deceptive (not to mention entertaining). Would I recommend this book? You betcha!" - Jim Canaday, The Magic Portal

"There's way more here than simply 28 tricks between two covers. There's an assemblage of original thoughts and methods from a consummate professional you can buy for a trifle." - Rick Carruth, The Magic Roadshow.

"In addition to killer tricks, Paul also provides his innovations and handlings of useful sleights, including Pinky Ovette, Center Double Control, and Simple Double Card Control. His essay Thoughts on Multiple...

Ken de Courcy

Magic Balloons by Ken de CourcyFrom the introduction:
It was that well-known West Country entertainer, Roy Van Dyke, who made me realise balloons can be used for more purposes than screwing into strange shapes sometimes resembling animals. He has a terrific opening trick that has colour, movement and noise that never fails to grab and hold the attention of today's show-saturated audiences.

Ian Baxter

Three Extras by Ian BaxterFrancis Carlyle and Faucett Ross get coverage in this latest manuscript from Ian Baxter. In a tribute to both of these giants from the past, Baxter examines Carlyle's 'The Card That Finds Itself' with a new and novel approach, while the Ross classic 'Twice Turned' gets a dusting off that adds value-plus to this popular effect from the Vernon Chronicles. The third entry is Baxter's technique for the Top Palm, unbelievably fast, straightforward and appreciably easier than most other methods in print.

Brick Tilley

Mr. Bones: Miracle Thought of Card by Brick TilleyA card is merely thought of by a spectator. The performer writes a prediction on a card and pockets it. The spectator is asked to remove his thought of card from the deck. When the performer reads his own prediction it is found to match the spectator's card. At no time does the spectator state or reveal his card until after the performer has read aloud his prediction.

This is based on a Harold Taylor idea. The clever method will put a big smile on your face.

Thomas Carlyl

Count Cagliostro by Thomas CarlylThis is Thomas Carlyle's long essay on Count Cagliostro, published in 1833 in Fraser's Magazine. He is examining the hero and his shadows - what was false about Cagliostro. Cagliostro was a Sicilian mountebank, whose lasting notoriety was a bit part in the Diamond Necklace Affair that rocked pre-Revolutionary France, and whose most enduring work was the confession extracted by the Roman Inquisition, a tome published in 1792, three years previous to Cagliostro's demise in an Inquisitional cell.

Henry Ridgely Evans

The Napoleon Myth by Henry Ridgely Evans(We are carrying this ebook primarily because of the author, Henry Ridgeley Evans, who published several interesting books on conjuring.)

On its face the book is about the myth that Napoleon never existed. It was at one time a popular myth, hoax, or fake news as it would be called today. It also provides interesting lessons and insights on how myths can develop. Since there are a number of myths in the world of conjuring, this work can help one understand why and how some of the myths in magic may have developed.

Im Fokus Nr. 12: Französische Verabschiedung by Christian Scherer

Eine Variante von Paul Harris' Interlaced Vanish

Der Vorführende sucht die vier Könige und die vier Asse aus dem Spiel. Ein Ass wird auf das Spiel abgelegt, die drei anderen Asse werden bildunten zwischen die bildoben liegenden Könige gesteckt.

Das auf dem Spiel liegende Ass wird noch einmal vorgezeigt und dann unter das Kartenetui gelegt. Die vier Könige mit den dazwischenliegenden Assen werden noch einmal deutlich vorgezeigt. Daraufhin lösen sich die Asse vor den Augen der Zuschauer in Luft auf. Der Vorführende hält nur noch die vier Könige in der Hand, die er einzeln auf den Tisch fallenlässt....

Im Fokus Nr. 11: Stand-up Hung Fu by Christian Scherer

Eine Variante von Geoff Latta's "Hanging Coins"-Routine, die im Stehen vorgeführt wird.

Der Vorführende behauptet, dass das Loch in einer chinesischen Münze die Eigenschaft eines schwarzen Loches hätte, d. h., dass alles, was dort hineingerate, verschwinde. Dies beweist er, indem er eine Silbermünze an der chinesischen Münze reibt, sie etwas knetet und dann in das Loch wirft, wo sie verschwindet.

Dies wird mit zwei weiteren Silbermünzen wiederholt. Pustet der Vorführende in das Loch der chinesischen Münze, fallen die drei Silbermünzen wieder aus dem Loch heraus.

Unknown Mentalist

Echo Force by Unknown MentalistThis special intro price will go up to $12 on November 2, 2020.

The Echo Force is a beautiful force but way under utilized. It is powerful, effective and highly deceptive. And it can be applied in a multitude of ways. In book tests, predictions, divinations, drawing duplications and even in propless effects. The only limit is your imagination.

This force is completely self-working and you can focus totally on your presentation. There are no sleights needed, no preshow, no stooges or instant stooges. No equivoque, no dual reality, no memorization. And this works in any language.

Aldo Colombini

Match Play by Aldo ColombiniBased on an idea by Nick Trost. You will be thrilled with the splendid effect which you achieve in such an easy manner.

You show a packet of five jumbo cards cut in half. Two spectators shuffle the cards and split the packet taking some cards each. For example, one spectator has 4 cards and one has six. You place an envelope on the table and then show the cards to each spectator in turn. They look and remember the one half-card (that corresponds to the number of cards they each had in hand). Then you ask them to remove from the packet the half-card they have seen. Incredibly they match! Not...
