Something Else by Cameron Francis

A collection of non-card effects

"I need more non-card stuff," is a familiar refrain with most close up magicians.

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

"... the audience gave him top applause at finish."...

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...

Guy Hollingworth
Waving the Aces by Guy Hollingworth

After "Reformation", this is Guy Hollingworth's most brilliant creation. The aces visibly turn face up while at the fingertips. If you think Twisting the Aces is a strong effect, then Waving the Aces will blow your mind. And it is not at all difficult to perform for an intermediate level card magician.

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.

Master Mentality by Stanton Carlisle

Master Mentality is an important addition to the rather sparse literature available on the little-known subject of contact mind reading.

Contact mind reading is generally believed to be almost impossible to practice and hard to learn. Stanton Carlisle demonstrates that this is not at all the case. His instructions share all the secrets of a successful performance and the techniques to learn and master this art.

I consider this the most important work of Stanton Carlisle. He shares many bits and tips of the business of mentalism in general, not just the techniques and methods to become...

The Magic of ESP by Stanton Carlisle

Here are 25 tricks with ESP cards. Some are impromptu (marked below with a single star), some require a bit of preparation (marked below with two stars), and a few require more involved preparation such as gimmicked cards (marked below with three stars).

Most are suitable for jumbo ESP cards as well as regular poker or bridge sized cards. And most use only a single deck of ESP cards.

Al Mann
O'Daneven's Secret by Al Mann

Effect:

One to four spectators choose a design out of a choice of 16 designs. The performer either reads their minds or has their choices predicted in advance.

The method is a clever combination of known mentalism principles.

You will receive a manuscript of 7 pages explaining various routines for O'Daneven's Secret. You will also receive a printed cardboard similar to the cover image of this product. (This is the original print run Al Mann made. It is therefore an original Al Mann item.) To assemble the prop there is a bit of cutting and gluing necessary but nothing a second grader...

Mentalism De Luxe by Stanton Carlisle

Eight strong and wonderful mentalism routines.

"Key Caper" for example is a completely ungimmicked version of Annemann's "Seven Keys To Baldpate". The method is simple and easy, a piece of beautiful clever mentalism.

"Music in the Air" makes use of a cigarette lighter that plays a tune when lighted. I have never seen such lighters. They are probably out of fashion these days. However, the effect could very easily be modernized and used together with a ring-tone on a cellphone. The effect is the following. You show a packet of cards, each one has a different song title printed on it. Your...

Richard L. Tenace
Stage Craft for Magicians by Richard L. Tenace

The average magician focuses on tricks, moves and method. The really good ones know that acting is an even more important aspect of a magic performance, regardless of if you are standing on a stage or close-up next to a cocktail table.

Richard Tenace is one of those performers who urges all magicians to take acting classes, to develop a character or persona, to script your effects, to treat our audience with respect, to go beyond fooling somebody to achieving astonishment and entertainment.

Tenace describes these methods and practices on a very accessible and practical level. This is not...

Peter Duffie
Close-Up to the Point by Peter Duffie

This was Peter Duffie's first solo book published on the heels of his hugely successful Alternative Card Magic and Contemporary Card Magic.

It includes mostly card routines with a couple of coin routines sprinkled in for good measure. The effects are not difficult to do and can be classified as intermediate. Some routines require palms, half passes and riffle passes.

It is a joy if one can study the early creative output of one of the most accomplished card magician alive today.
