Peter Prevos
The Jastrow Illusion in Magic by Peter Prevos

The Jastrow illusion is known to magicians as the boomerang illusion. Two boomerang-shaped ring segments seem to be of different sizes but are in fact identical.

Magicians tend to underestimate the power of this simple trick. Its use in magic is limited to children's entertainers and magic kits. This illusion is more powerful than it seems at first sight. A recent viral video shows that its deceptive power is as strong as it was when first discovered almost 150 years ago.

The Jastrow Illusion in Magic ebook provides an in-depth review of the psychology of this illusion and a detailed overview...

Audacious 3: Bi-Fold Mentalism by Abhinav Bothra

Scott Xavier
Triple Threat by Scott Xavier

Triple Threat is a collection of mentalism and magic effects that Scott Xavier has been working on for nearly ten years.

In this manuscript you will find a no gimmick coin in hand routine. This is as pure as it gets. When you leave behind the dirty work, you'll even be able to develop your actual ability to predict a game of guess which hand a coin is in. And.... You're always right! Plus, because in the other effects, there's no finale, now there's a kicker ending too.

You'll also get Scott's unique card stab using a crossbow. This is the actual effect that he uses to close his 4 diamond...

Devin Knight
The Skeleton of Jekyll and Hyde by Devin Knight

Most magicians are familiar with the Do-As-I-Do card trick, where both the magician and spectator select the same card from two different decks. This has been a staple of card magic for over 100 years. But can you imagine doing this with two dictionaries where both the spectator and magician select the same word?

Can you imagine doing this with no forcing of a word! It's possible using a long-forgotten secret from the 30s and updated for today's performers. Read on.

Let's assume you are the spectator and I am the magician. I have two identical large-print dictionaries. You chose a page...

Psychic Match Divination by Devin Knight

Here is a new close-up psychic trick, using a new method, not used before to create this type of effect. You do this using a short tube cut from a regular opaque straw. It is ungimmicked. Also three ordinary wooden matches are colored to give you three different colored match sticks, red, blue and green. The matches sticks are all the same length.

One of the three different colored matches is placed into the straw tube behind the performer's back. The performer caps his thumb and first finger over each end of the straw tube and holds the same to his forehead.

He instantly names the color...

Devin Knight
The Ultimate Page Force by Devin Knight

How a page is forced during a book test is the most important part of the test. Unfortunately, most page forces are sadly lacking. Most appear contrived. Dice are rolled to determine page numbers, playing cards are used or math is used to determine a random number. This not what a real mind reader would do.

Other methods involve mis-calling numbers. If the audience realizes that the mentalist knows the page number, then the effect has dropped a few levels. Many people have read in books about secret cue lists and realize if the mentalist knows the page number, then he may have memorized the...

A multipurpose, innocent appearing, easy to make utility prop, that should be in the arsenal of every mentalist.

Production from Any Ungimmicked Magazine by Devin Knight

Most productions are usually from some kind of suspicious looking box that screams magic prop. This is the old-fashion way, time to step into modern times and do away with fake looking boxes that look like something only a magician would have.

With this method, the performer enters with an everyday magazine, such as People magazine. It is held carelessly in his right hand. He flips the pages showing it is an unprepared copy of Time, People or any other publication.

In truth, it IS absolutely unprepared! He tears off the cover and shows it on both sides using just his left hand. He then...

Scripted #5: Lie Detector by Larry Brodahl

Nick Trost's Automatic Lie Speller turned into two different scripts complete with by-play, jokes, and mystery.

How do you explain to an audience in a reasonable manner how and why a deck of cards can detect and correct lies? Well, the author of How To Write a Script shows you how he used his methodology to write a script that successfully explains the power of Nick Trost's Automatic Lie Speller.

There are actually two scripts given. One is for groups where you want to involve more than one person, and whispering would...

Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph
Linked and Inside by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

You punch a hole thru the corner of two signed playing cards. You clearly show both sides of the playing cards and instantly link them together! But that's not enough. You tear off one corner and make it vanish only to appear inside of the signed playing card while the spectator holds the cards in his hands! The corner matches perfectly. Give the cards away as a Souvenir. They will find nothing. Perform it close up and stand up. The gimmick is easy to build.
