Dave Forrest
Idiom by Dave Forrest

Effect: You show a deck of playing cards - they're blank on the back and on the face you have written all the letters of the alphabet, one letter on each card. The spectator shuffles the deck and selects any four cards. He is then asked to form a word from the four cards chosen. If it so happens that he can make more than one word - he is allowed a COMPLETELY FREE CHOICE of which word he would like to settle on. A prediction that has been in full view throughout is then shown to accuratley match the freely chosen word!

Idiom truly is an audience pleaser. The organic props are genuinely interesting...

Andrew Loh
Hallucination by Andrew Loh

Hallucination is Andrew's first packet trick that is very easy to do and highly entertaining.

Basically, this effect involves four Queens and you magically cause any two Queens to penetrate with the other two Queens visually.

At the end, you cause all the Queens to vanish magically leaving the blank cards on the table!

There is no slit or any special cut-out card at all in this effect.

This ebook is not suitable for beginners. While all the moves are explained clearly some previous card handling experience is preferable.

Skill Level: 3-4 (Intermediate)

ACAAN Again by Dave Forrest

Dave just can't leave this plot alone. Here, on this 12 minute video download you'll learn perhaps his boldest method to date. A regular deck is thoroughly examined and shuffled by a spectator. A freely chosen number between 1 and 52 is written on a business card. A freely chosen card is written on a second business card. Both of these are locked inside the card case. The performer takes the deck and deals until the number is reached. Sure enough, the chosen card is found at the freely chosen number. The best news? There is a very cool gimmick in play which makes this whole thing practically...

Positive Thinking by Dave Forrest

Inspired by an effect by Max Maven. If you like these type of effects also make sure to check out Assertive Positive Negative by Scott F. Guinn.

Effect: You place a folded business card - a prediction - on the table in full view. Your spectator is asked to imagine three coins. They are then asked to select one of the coins, toss it in the air and catch it, calling heads or tails. Let's imagine they call tails!

Superflip and S.F.U.C. by (Benny) Ben Harris

Imagine: You’ve just performed several stages in your “Ambitious Card” routine. For one final time you place the “magic card” in the middle of the deck. The deck is placed face-down in the middle of the table. You show your hands empty. With a snap of your fingers you gesture toward the deck. Now, by simply riffling upward gently on the tabled deck’s edges—and dribbling the cards back to the table—the signed selection instantly and visibly appears face-up, atop the deck!

You accept your well earned applause and feel cool that you’ve done this by mastering a simple and clever...

Slurp by Mark Parker

The performer displays a small stack of cards showing an illustration of a glass full of red wine, the glass still has a price tag attached to its stem. A spectator is asked to sign their name/initials on the price tag for identity purposes. The performer takes the card and visibly squeezes wine from the card into a small glass. The card is now shown to the spectator but the glass is now empty...amazingly the price tag still has their signature written on it...a miracle.

The gimmick that allows you to squeeze wine from the card is very well made from aluminium and plastic and can be used...

Anagramation by Jim Krenz

The performer displays a stack of business cards which each have a magical logo and the phrase "For Astonishment..." on them. The spectator initials the top card of the stack and a playing card is also selected, but not yet revealed. The performer flips through the stack of cards and the printed letters move slowly at first, then begin careening all over the card, bouncing off the edges and each other. As the letters slow down, they are seen to be forming into new words in an "anagramic" way. When they are finished moving, they read "Nine Of Hearts!" When the spectator's selected card is revealed...

This book has long become a classic for close-up magicians. I have acquired a box as part of a larger deal and am pricing it ridiculously low. If you already have this book buy three more copies and hand them out as gifts. Your friends will love you. (Please note that while these are not used books, they are not necessarily in pristine condition. Some rubbing and chaffing on the covers, and the cover print is at times not perfect.)

Chris Stolz
Not So Boxed by Chris Stolz

A spectator selects a card and signs it. You put the entire deck in the box to remove all possibility of sleight of hand. The card is inserted into the middle of the pack in the box with its face and signature to the spectators, pushed flush, and the box is closed. You turn the box horizontal and casually turn it over a few times with open fingers to show that both sides are clean and clear. With a wave of your hand, the selected card suddenly appears on top of the card box which is still closed. The box with the card on top are immediately held out on your empty palm for a spectator to take,...

Raphaël Czaja
ACOCAVAN by Raphaël Czaja

From the creator of the best-seller SCAMP comes a new effect based on the ACAAN plot. Although it is not the "Grail", it is direct to the point with a minimum of sleights and a few subtleties for a maximum impact!

EFFECT: The magician shuffles a deck of cards and asks a spectator to cut the deck a first time to determine a suit and a second time to determine a value (the suit and the value of the cards he cut to, let's say a Diamond and a 4). Then, the magician asks the spectator to imagine where his card may lie into the deck and thus, to think of any number. The spectator reveals he's thinking...

Bob Cassidy
The Messing Effect by Bob Cassidy

Wolf Messing (1899 -1974) is often said to have been the most talented mind reader in the world. A native of Poland, Messing moved to Russia just prior to the outbreak of World War II. His decision to emigrate followed a performance, during which he predicted that Germany would be defeated and Hitler would die if Poland were invaded. Hitler, a devout believer in psychic phenomena, showed his appreciation for Messing's psychic gifts by placing a bounty of 200,000 marks on his head. After the war he worked for many years as a performer, and it has been suggested that he was one of Josef Stalin's...

Convincing Coin Magic by Victor Farelli

A Practical Treatise on Coin Sleights and Effects with 54 explanatory photographs and diagrams.

Farelli was regarded by his fellow magicians as "beyond all other writers on conjuring in that he sought not only to explain the 'how-to' in minute detail, down to the last crook of the little finger, but he also threw in a thousand asides—the origin of the trick, a bibliography, alternative props or moves the performer might use, a quote from David Devant, the psychology behind the feat, audience reaction to it, and tips on practicing" (Robert Lund). Contains a select bibliography of coin magic.

Dr. Alexander Cannon by Goodliffe

Dr. Cannon was probably magic's most unusual character. He lived for many years on the Isle of Man where he ran a healing sanctuary. He had his own fully equipped theatre - The Enchanted Hall. Goodliffe, who was afflicted by a crippling disease, was encouraged by Dr. Cannon to take a free course of treatment.

Goodliffe knew Cannon well as a result and provides an absorbing portrait of this man on the recording. Of course you hear Cannon speaking as well. Fraud, fake or genuine mystic? Decide for yourself after listening to yet another voice from the mysterious past.
