Hoodwink by (Benny) Ben Harris
"I highly recommend this to all of you who are interested in learning a devilishly clever approach to TORN & RESTORED CARD" - Danny Orleans (Genii Magazine)
Hoodwink is based on the author's own effect, "Prime Hole Card" from 1983. It became a best-seller when re-released in 1999. Everyone was concentrating so hard on complex quarter-at-a-time restorations, that Hoodwink, with it's stunning flash restoration, seemed like a breath of fresh air.

Hoodwink is not designed to replace, or to in any way compete with, the fine crop of "quarter by quarter" restorations that are making the rounds. Instead,...

Zoom by (Benny) Ben Harris
"The construction of the card is ingenious..." - Michael Close (Magic Magazine)
The famous and easy animated card that mysteriously moves away from your fingers—zooming across the table.

Examinable, before, during and after. This is one of the most devious uses of Elastic Thread ever created. Prior to releasing the idea to critical acclaim in 1999, Ben had been sitting on this for over ten years, using it privately for the most important occasions only. It is the perfect effect for Street Magic performances as it can be performed under the most stringent conditions—ANYWHERE!

As you and the...

The original work on elastic thread magic, first published in 1989. All the pro tips you need, along with six full routines to start performing right now.

You see so much information published about "Elastic Thread Magic" today—you'd think it all "brand new". Alas, such is not the case. If you look hard, you'll see much of today's gold is really the silver of yesteryear.

(Benny) Ben Harris
This and That by (Benny) Ben Harris

The best-seller from 1986 is back.

You predict in advance which card will be named! Easy and fun.

This and That was a big seller back in the mid 1980's when the "Oscar" and "Phil" craze were at their peaks.

A spectator names any card (free choice) and you display that your deck has marked backs. They are all marked like "THIS" you say as you display cards in the deck as having the word "THIS" written on it's back. That's every card, but one. The selected card, on the other hand, has the word "THAT" written on it's back. Proving you know "this from that!"

Super easy to make at home...

R. Paul Wilson
Spellbound to Please by R. Paul Wilson

Scotland's top sleight-of-hand artist gives up one of his pet routines. It looks like real magic. A copper coin changes to a silver coin and back several times.

Surprisingly there are no really difficult moves. You will need a copper and a silver coin, but the spectators only see one at any given moment. And Paul's clever handling eliminates the thought in the spectators mind that there could be two coins.

Paul Green
Tradeshow Transposition by Paul Green

A working pro teaches you his most sought-after tradeshow stopper. Two spectators choose a card, they are lost in the deck. The performer places two cards into each spectator's hand. He thinks they are the correct selections but they are not. Magically they transform in the correct selections.

Mark explains how it is done but does not show the details of the moves he uses. You will need to be able to control a card to the top and be able to perform a double lift. That is all you need.

Mark Strivings
Psychic Influence by Mark Strivings

Predict a matched pair from a spectator shuffled deck. The deck can be freely shuffled and cut as often as the spectator wishes.

The methodology is somewhat involved because you need a billet index, a gimmicked envelope, and a marked deck. You could do without the gimmicked envelope but the rest you will need. Nevertheless, the effect is strong.

Lee Earle
Life Force Triangle by Lee Earle

This is a mathematical based effect you do on the back of your business card that the spectator gets to keep and take home with them. Very easy to perform.

The effect was created by Raj Madhok and was originally published in Syzygy.

A spectator chooses three numbers, one related to the future, one related to the past and the third one related to the present. These are added up and match your prediction.

Aldo Colombini
No-Palm Repeat Card To Pocket by Aldo Colombini

Aldo Colombini applies smart routining to turn a difficult effect typically requiring palming into an easy routine without any palming. The spectators signed card travels to the pocket twice without palming. There are no duplicate cards or any other gimmicks.

Jeff Hobson
Hobservations on Comedy Clubs by Jeff Hobson

The title might be a bit misleading as most of the advice is applicable to any magician who wants to add comedy to their performance.

If you are serious about mixing magic and comedy you need to read this. It will either make you reconsider your choice or give you a head start and pointers in the right direction.

"If you see one magician this decade, Hobson is it." - Herald Sun Melbourne, Australia

"Hobson closed the show with excellent magic and gales of laughter ... his acting and comedic timing are superb!" - Linking Ring Magazine

Simon J. Lea
Anti Tarot by Simon J. Lea

A reading system with playing cards

This effect is entitled Anti Tarot for two reasons. Firstly, it dispenses with tarot cards, using playing cards instead; secondly, the most important card in the reading is never seen by the reader. Instead of reading the cards and telling the spectator what should happen to them, the reader hears what has happened to the spectator and tells them what their chosen card should be.

  • Easy to learn and perform
  • No sleight of hand or forces used
  • Can be performed with a borrowed deck
  • All traditional meanings for the cards explained
  • Scripted reading taken...

Richard L. Tenace
Acting for Magicians by Richard L. Tenace

A practical workbook for the serious performer.

One of the main reasons magicians neglect the "acting" part of magic is because magic is such a demanding discipline to learn. A performing magician wears many hats. The magician has to learn sleights, misdirection and technical prowess of the hands. The magician is the choreographer, writer, sound person, booker and promoter of his show. Learning how to develop a character often takes a back seat because "there's no time to do everything!" But taking the time to learn how to develop a real character, or stage persona, is the most important...

Tommy Wonder
The Card in the Box by Tommy Wonder

Be prepared to receive a good dose of Tommy Wonder's clever magical thinking. Critically hailed as the best "Card in Box" ever created. Tommy shares all of the intricate details of this powerful routine, including the incredible "Two Second Card Fold", where you fold the the card three times into 1/8 of its original size. This is how magic is meant to look.

Tommy Wonder thinks about every minute detail. For example

  • What is the perfect size of the box?
  • How should the hinge operate?
  • What to do when a spectator stares at your hands while you want to perform a move?
  • And many more insights...

Kenton Knepper
EZ Torn & Restored Card by Kenton Knepper

Using only one card, this is probably the easiest and most deceptive Torn & Restored Card ever created. The ingenious creator of this is Ben Harris and he calls it Hoodwink. One could call this self-working, because all you do is fold, tear and open an ungimmicked card. It can't get any simpler and the effect is amazing.

Kenton adds his clever suggestive words that let the spectator dig his own hole of astonishment.
