The spectator removes the top 15 cards from the pack just as they come. From those 15 cards he is to remove all the black cards and put them in his front left pants pocket.

Basic Training for Breakfast

Ian Kendall

Basic Training for Breakfast by Ian KendallFrom the introduction:
Magic lectures, and more relevantly their notes, are a strange thing. While some are an endless parade of tricks and their explanations, some are thinly disguised dealer dems and some are virtuoso displays of unattainable sleight of hand, there are occasionally lectures that offer the inside information on performing for real people. Where it's not just the tricks that matter, it's all the little bits and pieces that lie in between the lines that make the difference between 'doing a trick' and 'making magic happen'. Guess which one I'm aiming for here.

The goal is...

Sharp Sorcery

Les Sharps

Sharp Sorcery by Les SharpsRoutines for the stand-up magician.

From the introduction by Wm. G. Stickland:

If Necessity is the Mother of Invention, we have the answer to the volume of offbeat magical effects which have emanated from the brains of these two enthusiasts in recent years, for living so far from magic activities (except those they have themselves organised) and magic dealers, they have been forced, in their desire to keep up-to-date, to originate their own effects. For several years the contribution of Les Sharps have been features of the British Ring Parade in each Christmas "Linking Ring", and in addition...

The Master Sealed Letter Reading Act

Robert A. Nelson

The Master Sealed Letter Reading Act by Robert A. NelsonA convincing, "real time" method of reading sealed messages, as employed by fraudulent mediums and psychics.

A strictly one man feature. The psychic passes among the audience, handing out small, unprepared envelopes containing a blank card. On these cards, spectators write their name and questions, then carefully seal them inside the envelope. The mentalist now collects the envelopes, never allowing them to get out of sight of the writers.

The performer or medium now holds the envelopes to his or her forehead, first calling out the writer's name, then proceeding to answer the spectator's...

How To Not Get Arrested At A Gig

Devin Knight

How To Not Get Arrested At A Gig by Devin KnightDid you know you could be doing things at your gigs that could get you arrested or lead to hefty fines? I know in the past I was guilty of doing some of these things which led me to write this e-book. In my opinion this is the definitive work on avoiding getting busted at a gig.

To the best of my knowledge, this is the first e-book written entirely on this subject. It was written to protect entertainers and should be considered a must read for all performers. It's a shame that I have to write this PDF, but unfortunately there are things that entertainers could be doing at their shows that...

Mnemonica for Everybody

Geoff Williams

Mnemonica for Everybody by Geoff WilliamsMnemonica for Everybody is a streamlined, graphical method for easily and quickly learning the Tamariz stack.

It's the same Peg Memory System (PMS) I developed that I used to learn the Aronson Stack in an hour while driving. BTW, this same technique works great for every memorized stack out there including the Aronson Stack, The Six-Hour Memorized Deck by Martin Joyal, the Nikola stack and others.

Even though there are no actual tricks taught in this manuscript, it does contain links to several free memorized deck tricks and other resources (including a free e-book from Simon Aronson).

Please refer to the writings...

Klean Force

Unknown Mentalist

Klean Force by Unknown MentalistThis is an introductory price and will go up to $18 on February, 26, 2017.

Klean Force is a simple self working principle which can be used to build interesting routines with different themes. In this manuscript, two killer routines are explained which you could very well use as 'gig getters'. One routine is based on the theme of 'countries' and another on the theme of 'famous quotes'. A five minute preparation is all you need to start performing these routines.

The participants make absolutely free choices and yet the 'force' hits cleanly and cleverly. There are no sleights, no pre show,...

You'll Get The Point

Ken de Courcy

You'll Get The Point by Ken de CourcyIf you like a real card baffler, look no further. This is a sort of 'One-Deck Do-As-I-Do' but it works on a very different principle.

Cards are shuffled and cut both by the spectator and the performer (really!). The spectator mentally chooses a card (free choice) and the performer does the same. Then the cards are shuffled again. Unbelievably, the magician and the spectator get cards of the same value and colour. It almost works itself.

Effect: The performer cuts a portion off the pack, hands it to a spectator and asks him to do exactly as he does. First they both shuffle their packets,...

Touchy

Gerard Zitta

Touchy by Gerard ZittaThis ebook is an exploration of a clever principle rarely used by mentalists or magicians, and probably known by just a few. It can use four to a dozen of flat objects (that can be borrowed): cards, jumbo cards, business cards, index cards, coasters, postcards, banknotes, photographs, billets, lottery tickets, coupons, poker chips, etc.

Effect (Example)

You can have your back turned:

You show a number of postcards, for instance, with different cities or countries. The spectator mixes them and puts the one she prefers, on the table. Then, she is instructed to put the other ones on top...
