Kevin Parker

Oddzoff by Kevin ParkerWho can predict where in the deck someone will shuffle their card, to the specifics, e.g. a certain number of cards down into the deck? Even creepier would be if it relates to something you uttered beforehand as if it made it happen.

Imagine this. You mention a scenario where they are 2 or 3 off guessing the amount of candies in a jar. Then the spectator thinks of any card, shuffles the deck they're holding, then finds that card 2 or 3 off from your written prediction just like the candy scenario. The only other outcomes would be if it's just 1 off or dead-on, but you're covered there too...

Gregg Webb

Super Session #10: All That Jazz - Face Up Jazz Aces by Gregg WebbThe following effect, "All That Jazz," was first published in Gregg Webb's underground magic newsletter, FEEN-X in 2000.
  • A great packet trick with normal cards - no gaffs are used.
  • Packed with surprises, eight cards transpose and assemble in front of your audience in the cleanest manner.
  • The cards are displayed face up at key points in the performance. Gregg's setup allows you to present the trick as slowly as desired - no discrepancies can be seen by the sharpest spectator.

Henry Ridgely Evans

Hours with the Ghosts by Henry Ridgely EvansIllustrated investigations into the phenomena of spiritualism and theosophy.

From the preface:

The author has had sittings with many famous mediums of this country and Europe, but has seen little to convince him of the fact of spirit communication. The slate tests and so-called materializations have invariably been frauds. Some experiments along the line of automatic writing and psychometry, however, have demonstrated to the writer the truth of telepathy or thought-transference. The theory of telepathy explains many of the marvels ascribed to spirit intervention in things mundane.

Edwin A. French

Premiere Slate Mystery by Edwin A. FrenchHere is French's personal method of making a "spirit answer" appear on a borrowed slate ... while sealed inside an envelope and held by a spectator. The spectator's initials may be written on the frame of the slate to prove that there are no switches of any kind employed. This mind-numbing mystery can be worked solo, as a one-man effect, with an ungimmicked slate. Instead of a slate, black cardboard or artist board can be substituted. Complete routine, with three presentations described, for stage, party or séance. Absolutely no flaps, switches, gimmicked slates or chemicals used. No stooges...

Abhinav Bothra

Accurate by Abhinav BothraAn impromptu version of the classic 'Free Will' combined with a short and simple reading that makes it unforgettable.

While the performer is looking away, three borrowed objects - 2 currency notes and a coin, are hidden one under each hand and one inside a card box or a match box. The performer turns back and deduces the location of each of those objects based on the vibe the participant emits and what a stranger (performer) would think of him/her.

  • Easy to do
  • Uses borrowed objects
  • Allows you to hand out business cards
  • It is the reading that hits the ball home
  • A standard reading is...

Super Session #8: Five Card Phlugelheimer by Gregg WebbThe featured effect, "Five Card Phlugelheimer," enables you to walk among your audience and allow five people to mentally select five cards from a deck:
  • Each spectator mentally selects a card - the deck is shuffled and cut each time.
  • The miracle worker rapidly reveals the selected cards.
  • As a bonus kicker, a sixth spectator mentally selects a card - the deck is shuffled again. Single cards are dealt to the table as the name of the selected card is spelled - the final card dealt is the selection.

Wunder aus der 4ten Dimension by H. F. C. SuhrDer original Untertitle lautet:
Enthüllung der verschiedenartigsten spiritistischen und verwandten Phänomene, sowie genaue Anleitung zur Darstellung derselben in privaten Kreisen durch Dilettanten.

Bob Cassidy

Il Libro Nero del Mentalismo by Bob CassidyA Joseph Dunninger è stato spesso attribuito il merito di aver detto: "Ogni volta che si aggiunge un oggetto di scena al vostro spettacolo, il vostro cachet diminuisce". Il suo ragionamento dovrebbe essere ovvio - ogni orpello aggiuntivo indebolisce l'illusione di ciò che appare come "vera lettura della mente". E, come Bob ha fatto notare molte volte nei suoi precedenti lavori, anche ogni ulteriore forma di mentalismo che viene dimostrato (telepatia, precognizione, psicocinesi, chiaroveggenza, ecc). Recentemente un "mentalista" ha sfidato Bob su tale punto: "Quanto è divertente dimostrare...
