Impossible MattersR. Shane
These are two very interesting self-working effects, both based on topological principles. You do not need to learn any math or remember a whole lot to perform these two stunning effects. (These two effects have been taken from Shane's books Automata and Pentalogy.)

A card routine that is murder. This ain’t your usual card trick. Anyone who knows Shane and his work knows he likes to tell stories with my magic. Old stories, new stories, morality tales, dirty jokes...it’s all brain fodder as far as he's concerned. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a shock that “Cut!” is story. But it’s a grisly little tale ending with a bloody murder. Probably not a good routine for restaurant work. But it is a good routine for those moments when you want to entertain and shock your audience a bit, and audience whose sensibilities can handle a little blood flowing...

The Magic of SlydiniLewis Ganson & Tony Slydini
This is a classic book, probably the best book on close-up magic ever written. Now available as an ebook with an improved layout. The original book had 448 photos grouped together in full-page photo plates. This meant that most photos were removed from the text which goes along with the photos. We have corrected this error in this digital edition. All photos have been inserted in the text where they are referred to.

Effortless Card MagicPeter Duffie
Effortless is probably just as apropriate or misleading as self-working. It doesn't mean that these tricks don't require any effort on your side. You have to read the descriptions, remember the sequence of actions and perform the act - entertain, which in my book is neither self-working nor effortless. But what these terms try to convey is that you will not need to master difficult moves or finger breaking sleights to perform these effects. And they are very good effects. Often an 'effortless' trick can be performed to greater effect because the performer can pay more attention to audience managment,...
