Robert Parrish
For Magicians Only by Robert Parrish

This was a very successful book on magic when it originally appeared in 1944. Even the sophisticated New Yorker put at the top of its list of recommended books for servicemen.

A complete repertory of tricks that can be performed without elaborate equipment.

The only book on magic that tells exactly how to keep the audience from seeing the mechanics of performance.

Here's the book for every one who ever dreamed of pulling rabbits out of a hat or sawing a woman in two (and putting her back together again). The author, who has had a long experience in platform magic and two previous books...

Larry Becker
Larry Becker's Magic Castle Lecture by Larry Becker
"Everyone should work the Castle for a week. Not for the money, but for the memories." - Larry Becker
Many years ago the first mentalism trick I purchased was "Psycho II" an incredibly clever method, so clean, so fair but what a deception. Larry in his own words in 1984:

At the Psychic Entertainers Association convention in St. Louis, I was requested to demonstrate my abilities for the TV media. The effect that I chose to perform was "Psycho II". Approximately 25 years ago, I released the grand-daddy of this remarkable ESP design miracle as just plain "Psycho". It proved to be an award...

Bankteller: A Money Prediction Effect by Raymond Doetjes

Bankteller is a powerful money prediction effect that involves several people: You hand a volunteer a prediction envelope. You show an empty stack of envelopes, you ask several people to put one coin each in that empty envelope, whilst you look away. You let the volunteer seal the envelope. After you noticed that a few of the contributors have cheated, you ask the volunteer to open the envelope and you predicted the exact amount collected; No swami writing!

Then you ask her to take any three coins and slip them in envelopes and mix them up. You will know where each coin is.

As a final thought...

Sean Waters
Ode to Ekman: A Seamless Psychological Illusion by Sean Waters

Five audience members are asked to concentrate on one of six universal emotions. The performer reveals each person's emotion with a knowledge of "micro-expressions".

The last participant is asked to remain on stage for a final experiment. Although she does not know how, she demonstrates an even more impressive, uncanny intuitive ability.

Best of All: No one knows how and everyone is equally amazed. Honest!

Ponderings: A Collection of Mental Ideas by Sean Waters

This ebook contains six effects and two essays. Ponderings includes: new methods of suggestion with cards, a routine based upon interpretive psychology, an effect with a dollar bill and even an easy, but effective, "con?" demonstration. I am confident that you will thoroughly enjoy the effects, but the astute reader will discover the real value between the lines. Most can be performed close-up or stand-up, one routine is primarily a "theatrical piece" (but could be applied to close-up). These routines demonstrate a philosophy of performing mental effects. There is also a thought-provoking essay...

Cartomancy for the Non-Cartomancer by John Wellington Wells

Cartomancy for the Non-Cartomancer is a collection of two treatises on the art of giving readings with cards. The best card trick John ever did was to tell a diner cook "everything going on around me". You can do the same. Not overnight, but quickly and easily. No cold reading, no spiel reading, no gimmicks or gaffs, just plain old fashioned fortune telling.

Three Cheers for the Underrated by Luke Jermay

[This is priced to keep it out of the hands of the mere curious.]

Luke presents three wonderfully routined and thought through effects, all building on classic mentalism plots, improved by his ingenious thinking and knowledge of methods.

From the introduction:

In this manuscript we are going to examine three routines. The first, “Three Questions,” is something that I have made use of in casual settings for a while now. I think it really showcases some interesting thinking that creates a very pleasing outcome. I really hope you enjoy this and use it in your own casual performances and walk around settings. The second routine, “The Ultimate Add...

Under Cover by Jim Coles

Imagine this: You borrow a quarter from a spectator and have it initialed with a Sharpie marker. You take a pack of cigarettes and place the quarter on top of the pack. You have the spectator cover the quarter with a hand and say you’ll cause the coin to pass completely through the pack. You make a magical pass and have the spectator lift her hand. Only...the quarter’s still there. You ask the spectator to pick up the quarter. She tries but her fingers slide right over the coin. Impossibly the coin is under the cellophane! You clearly show the pack is unopened and unmarked in any way. You...

Pulled by Alan Rorrison

The Linking Rings effect is a classic of magic and for good reason: a direct and simple method coupled with the visual aspect of the props have made this a strong hold in most magicians' working arsenals.

So what is wrong with the original that a new one needs to be brought forth? Well, here are a few small points to take into consideration:

  • The old rings are too big for any real world worker
  • They are too expensive in most cases
  • Large rings simply look like a magic prop
  • The routine rarely has any motivation
  • People simply get bored of the routine
Pulled solves all these points and...
