Peter Duffie
Double Jeopardy by Peter Duffie

A card at any number! But the number is predicted in advance! Watch the demo video below.

The performer removes a card that has plenty of white space on its face from the deck – say, the Two of Hearts - and writes a prediction on the face of this card with a marker pen. The prediction is left face down on the table. A spectator now selects a card from the deck (say the JS), after which the card is lost back into the deck. The deck is now given to a second spectator who - only now - names ANY number. To keep the routine moving along you suggest he thinks of any number between 1 and 30. He...

Ron Jaxon
"Almost" Impromptu Vanishing Car by Ron Jaxon

Imagine being able to make your friends car vanish into thin air. You can also make their car appear or change with these methods using no large props what so ever. In fact chances are you already have everything you need to perform this trick so it'll most likely cost you nothing.

I want to be completely honest about the limitations and strengths of this trick. So here are a few questions I feel I'd be most likely to get about this trick.

Is it practical?
Yes and no would be my answer to that question. It's unlikely that you'll perform this trick on a regular basis although it is possible....

The Eclectic Collector by Jim Kleefeld

A Sampling of categorized magical collectibles. Jim Kleefeld is a magic collector and writes for the M.U.M., the official organ of the S.A.M.

The Eclectic Collector will present to you a set of chapters that each delineate collectible artifacts in a category. The categories are a broad mix and the artifacts will vary in number. In some categories there are so many good examples, ten did not seem sufficient. In other categories, there are so few examples, that finding ten is extremely difficult.

Magic Around the World by Jim Kleefeld

This complete show is Jim's geography-themed program performed for libraries all over Ohio and is aimed at children. It uses several standard props, some commercial tricks no longer made, but which may be available on used lists, and a couple of original effects especially created. The goal in this show was to give audiences a wide range of surprising magic routines that each involved a separate country and culture. Jim deliberately chose old and new tricks, and intermixed them with old and new cultures to give some sense of current world situations as well as some historical perspective. ...

Ron Jaxon
Change for a Dollar by Ron Jaxon

This effect is hard to describe. It's a very unusual version of the classic mismade bill in which the bill is folded in half then you cause the crease in the bill to move to a different edge. When the bill is unfolded you have a very unusual looking bill. Fold it in quarters and move the new crease to another edge and the bill looks even more unusual. Then you return everything back to normal and return the bill to it's owner.

You really should watch the demo video below to get the full effect. The demo video runs through the entire routine very quickly to keep the video short but you can...

John Scarne
The Odds Against Me by John Scarne

If he'd had a touch of larceny in him, he could have been the number one card sharp of all time. Instead, the author of these fabulous memoirs, born to a mother who considered gambling the "devil's tool," puts his extraordinary gifts to far different purpose.

He has used his incredible gambling sense, his miraculously dexterous fingers, his brilliant mathematical mind, his fascination with carnival and gambling life, to become America's number one authority on gambling and odds.

He was the greatest practitioner and analyst of card and dice sleight of hand. His artistry impressed FDR as...

Dariel Fitzkee
The Trick Brain by Dariel Fitzkee

This is book two from Fitzkee's trilogy and is unlike any other book ever written on magic. It was the first book (and to my knowledge the only book) to attack magic methods from a scientific standpoint. Fitzkee develops here a classification of effects, from appearances to vanishes, and then describes a system to invent or develop new trick plots. This is an invention system. I would say it is one way to invent new trick plots. But even if you are not of the scientific sort, the classification and discussion of magic effects and methods is a tremendous resource to expand your horizon and think...

Dariel Fitzkee
Magic by Misdirection by Dariel Fitzkee

This volume, book three in the trilogy, is all about the psychology in magic. Mechanics alone, a sleight or move, are not sufficient to produce a strong magic effect. Dexterity by itself is more like juggling. Only if misdirection, the psychological aspect of deception, is added into the mix, will one be able to create a truly magic experience.

There aren't many good works on misdirection. This is one of the must read ebooks, a classic in the theory of magic. A shorter but modern discussion of misdirection can be read in Pocket Power by Jarle Leirpoll.

Dariel Fitzkee
Showmanship for Magicians by Dariel Fitzkee

Dariel Fitzkee authored one of the best trilogies on magic theory. This volume, book one in the trilogy, primarily deals with theoretical aspects of a magic performance. This book has been cited numerous times and is one of the standard works every serious magician should read. Fitzkee has a very analytical mind and describes his thoughts clearly. As with any theory not everyone will agree with every detail and every suggestion. Regardless of if you fully subscribe to Fitzkee's thinking or not, there is plenty to learn from his writings.

Flip-M-Out by Ron Jaxon

Here is what Ron himself has to say about this ebook:

If I where asked to perform one trick to someone to show my ability as a close up magician. This routine is the one I’d show them. It’s my number one reputation making magic routine and I get more requests to perform “the coin trick” from both laymen and magicians then any other trick I perform. The reason for this is simple. It’s very powerful magic!

Here are a few reasons why:

  • The magic happens in the spectator’s hands.
  • It's done with common objects (coins)
  • Each phases seems more impossible then the one before. ...

R. Shane
Symbolics by R. Shane

These are three self-working routines with ESP cards with the general theme 'impossible coincidences', facilitated by a cyclic stack. (Two effects are based on work by Werner Miller from his Ear-Marked book, and one routine is from Shane's book Automata.)

As always with Shane, you don't just get a routine and method, but the reasons why these routines work, what is important and how you can change or alter them to suit your needs and make them your own.

In Search of Synchronicity
A deck of ESP is shown, shuffled, and cut. The spectator cuts the deck several times, finally stopping whenever she wants, and removes the...

Portents by R. Shane

These are two mentalism/bizarre routines from Shane's book Pentalogy.

The End of the World as We Know It
Is the old "triple prediction" plot, but turned upside down. In this routine, the spectator predicts the exact date and method of the end of the world. Yes, it really is as weird as it sounds.

Bones, Modern and Cold
Combines cold-reading through an easily-learned (and unique) divination system with a classic sleight-of-hand trick to drive home the real purpose of divination and fortune-telling.
