Tricks with Paper Cups by Samuel Berland

Go to any fast food restaurant and you will find them, or at parties, at the company water cooler, picknicks, fairs a.s.o. This makes paper cups an ideal item for us magicians - great for an impromptu miracle. Sam Berland teaches 25 amazing tricks, from vanishing liquids to appearing silks in cups. Almost any magical effect can be achieved.

You too should know at least one trick with a paper cup for the next discussion at the water cooler.

25 Lessons in Hypnotism by unknown

Shades of the Manchurian Candidate...this book teaches how to put someone into a hypnotic trance by showing them a playing card.

This is a great starter book from the depression years with all kinds of diverse hypnotic information. There are even a few "politically incorrect" statements in the book. But, after all, it was the 1930s.

You will be taught ways to hypnotize yourself or a room full of people, how to hypnotize someone instantaneously, and even how to hypnotize animals. It also covers mesmerism, magnet healing and other closely related subjects.

Stephen Minch & Martin A. Nash
Colors on the March by Stephen Minch & Martin A. Nash

Martin has used this one at police and government lectures everywhere. It concludes with one of the most deceptive dealing demonstrations possible with a deck of cards. Available again for the first time in 25 years!

The Colors on the March act consists of five interconnected routines. The major theme of the act is that of gambling - a topic that immediately captures the interest of both men and women. Notice how the requirements of each routine are secretly attained long in advance of the routine's performance, thus making the performer always several steps ahead or his audience. Also note...

Stephen Minch & Martin A. Nash
Jacks or Better by Stephen Minch & Martin A. Nash

One of Martin's favorite routines. This has been one of the most popular routines for Martin's lectures. It concludes with a 13 minute sandwich routine that keeps the audience continually guessing. Available again for the first time in 25 years!

To open, you begin by honestly cutting the four Aces from a shuffled pack in the fairest manner possible. This effect grabs their interest immediately and establishes you as an expert.

The red and black Aces then transpose with each other in an amazing fashion, via Martin's treatment of Dr. Daley's Last Trick. You then go into a poker dealing routine. ...

Stephen Minch & Martin A. Nash
Kings Incognito by Stephen Minch & Martin A. Nash

Kings Incognito is one of Martin's least demanding acts, in a technical sense. The sleights required are ones that will be found in the repertoir of the average close-up magician. Any sleights that you may not presently do can be learned within a reasonable time. The most demanding sleights occur, ironically, during the introductory sequence in which nothing happens. In this prologue to the magic, Martin demonstrates several methods in which people shuffle cards. While doing so, he executes a faro shuffle (which needn't be perfect) and a push through riffle shuffle. If these shuffles are not...

Stephen Minch & Martin A. Nash
Ovation by Stephen Minch & Martin A. Nash

Ovation is the card act that, for the last few years, Martin Nash reserved strictly for his use in the Close-Up Room at the Magic Castle. For a long time that was the only place one could witness it. Later he also used it for special occasions in his regular public work. This act was designed to impress and fool not only laymen but magicians and magic-wise laymen as well. Its proof of success is the many strations of seemingly unlimited card skill ever devised. It is not a self-working routine. It will take practice. But the end gives an impression far in excess of its means. Once mastered it...

Patter in Rhyme by Bert Douglas

Most of us are guilty of spending too little time on developing a unique and personal presentation. We rather work on perfecting moves and techniques. There is nothing against improving and honing your sleights, but we should spend equally on perfecting our presentation. Using rhymes is one way to develop an entertaining and memorable presentation. This booklet suggests rhymes for several classic effects such as 'Torn and Restored Newspaper', 'Cards up the Sleeve', 'Cut and Restored Rope', 'The Silk and Egg', 'Color Changing Silks', 'Passe Passe Bottles' and more. You can either take these rhymes...

Leftovers by Michael Sorensen

Unfortunately Martin Nash and Michael Sorensen have parted ways. "Nash Reloaded" had to be removed and will not be available anymore. Michael has pulled all his personal contributions from "Nash Reloaded" into a new ebook called "Leftovers". Don't be fooled by the word 'leftovers'. So regrettable the situation between Martin and Michael is, Michael is a very skilled and creative performer in his own right.

Jean Hugard
Thimble Magic by Jean Hugard

For a long time I had the perception that magic with thimbles is at best something for kids. Then I saw a performance by a Japanese magician. And it blew my mind. It was a fast paced, very visual and beautiful manipulation performance.

In this booklet Hugard teaches all the moves and quite a few routines to build your own thimble act. One of the big advantages of thimbles is that they are easier to manipulate than other objects such as balls and coins.

Jean Hugard
Sealed Mysteries of Pocket Magic by Jean Hugard

Jean Hugard describes in this booklet a complete routine consisting of 6 effects. He starts with a card trick, the piano card trick, and continues with a series of rope effects: production of a rope six feet long; doubling the rope; trick with two ropes; triple cut and restored rope; comedy explanation of vanishing knots.

The value of this booklet is in the routining itself. Hugard has used this routine many times with great success. The effects follow in a logical succession each building on the other.

PK Revolution by Jim Coles

PK stands for psychokinesis - moving or altering objects with the power of your mind. The four effects in this ebook show you how to bend and fuse coins, keys and how to break a fork in two. Some professionals have built a career with a few tricks like these. Everything is clearly described including photos. These are powerful effects, and for the price it is more than a bargain.

The performer borrows a quarter and places it on his left palm. Using only the tip of his right index finger, he causes the coin to visibly bend into a C shape. The bent coin can immediately be handed out...

Phoenix Rising by James Watkins

This is a very well thought out and carefully described torn-and-restored card effect. Seven alternate handlings are explained, plus you get a strong bonus effect.

Effect:
A card is freely selected; the spectator signs their name on the face of the card, and the magician signs his/her name on the back. An envelope is introduced, and the spectator is asked to open it up, and remove one of the pieces of paper it contains, and to examine it if they wish. After the paper is selected, the freely chosen card is visually ripped into four pieces and wrapped up inside of the chosen piece of paper,...

This is wonderful story magic of the bizarre kind. Great for Halloween. In total six effects are described, with photos and clear descriptions. James puts a lot of emphasis on presentation.

  2. No Way Out - This is as strong, scary and visually as it gets. An excellent animation that is freaky and exciting. This is possibly the strongest piece in the entire manuscript. If you want something that'll involve an audience and hook them emotionally,...

Lance Ackerman
Re-Attached by Lance Ackerman

The performer takes a deck of cards, lets the spectator pick a card and gives it back. The performer then takes the card, rips it into 4 pieces and slowly, one by one, the cards morph back into place as they started out even before they were ripped. At the end of the routine, the dents are visually ironed out and, in the spectators hands, is their card - perfectly normal!
