Brian T. Lees
Timing by Brian T. Lees

One of the most important elements of a performance. Without allowing time for the audience to comprehend the magician is doing nothing more than running through a series of instruction steps. Time adds drama, energy and the sizzle needed to enhance magic.

Timing is a hard subject to cover. One does not learn from books or lectures. Those sources, like this text, help identify the value of time. The magician must acquire his/her own skills with the use of time.

This text will help identify how it is used, provide examples you can relate to, and get you started. Armed with this knowledge...

J. G. Thompson Jr.
Sleight Intended by J. G. Thompson Jr.

From the foreword:

For years the pattern has been the same. A newcomer to magic invariably turns first to cards as a vehicle for mystification. He spends hours upon hours mastering difficult sleights and then, to his dismay, learns of the existence of easier and more effective maneuvers hidden away in magical literature - moves about which he could have no knowledge, but which would have made his previous struggles unnecessary, or, at least, eased them. Gradually he discards the results of many arduous hours of practice and substitutes the newly discovered and simplified versions until,...

Imagine this:

  • You turn your back
  • They shuffle the deck
  • They select one card
  • They replace it reversed in the deck
  • They shuffle again
  • You turn to face them, put the cards in the box, and you read their mind.

Unknown Mentalist
Mind Spark 2: Mental Logs Unlogged by Unknown Mentalist

Mental Logs is a well known routine. But it generally remained a math puzzle and never got to become a mind blowing miracle, at least for many performers. Mental Logs Unlogged, although based on the basic principle of mental logs, has been treated with a double dose of steroids and zooms up very high in terms of impact and impossibility.

First, you do not need to carry your mental logs anymore. Second, the theme here gives you a plausible reason to use sets of 4 digit numbers. Third, a few business cards is all you need to perform these amazing routines. Fourth, the basic principle has been...
