Peter Duffie
Mind Master by Peter Duffie

For almost 10 years this has been Peter's biggest selling trick in Europe & the USA.

You give a spectator a small pocket diary. From a choice of over sixty names written on cards, a second spectator mentally selects a husband and wife. The choice is free; there is no force of any kind.

You (or a spectator) read out a letter that has been in full view from the beginning. The letter reveals the date of the couple's wedding. The first spectator opens the diary to that date. For the first time, the second spectator announces the names he is thinking of. Let's say it's Mr. and Mrs. Ford. Spectator...

Faro Shuffle by Michael Close

Learn the In-The-Hands Faro Shuffle

Many magicians consider the faro shuffle to be one of the toughest moves in card magic. The thought of performing consistant, perfect faros seems an impossible dream - until you read this ebook.

The ability to do perfect faro shuffles is a powerful weapon in the card magician’s arsenal of sleights. It is a genuine shuffle; the cards are truly being mixed. But it is also a controlled shuffle, meaning that the resulting order of the cards is not random. For this reason, it is an excellent adjunct to memorized deck work. Michael likes to start with a memdeck...

Risk and Reward by Dale A. Hildebrandt

This ebook is for magicians who like to work without a safety net. It is not recommended for the novice. It describes unusual principles and presentations. The reward for such risk can be extremely high.

Here are bold methods for bold magicians. Entertainers with “guts” will appreciate these approaches. No effect in this booklet is 100% guaranteed to work every time, but when things do work you will leave your audience speechless in that moment of astonishment. Those who take risks are often rewarded. When the risks in this booklet pay off, your audience will feel they are in the presence...

Jim Kleefeld
The Volunteer Book by Jim Kleefeld

Most magicians involve a part of their audience in some of their effects, be it the trivial act of picking a card, or a more involved on stage helper or assistant. We can call all of these people volunteers, because they volunteer to participate in one form or another. Jim Kleefeld has written the first detailed and thorough work on volunteers, how to pick them, treat them and plan accordingly. Since he is trained in theater and psychology, he is very qualified to understand the perspective of volunteers, how they feel, how they would like to be treated and how they might react.

The Contract Book by Jim Kleefeld

Unless you are exclusively performing for friends and family, you should have a contract for each engagement. Of course, the best is to have a lawyer in your home state write up a contract specifically tailored to your needs and circumstances. But before you contact your lawyer you should sit down and read this ebook to learn more about contracts. The better prepared you are and the clearer you can present your needs to your lawyer the less time it will take and the less money it will cost. Your lawyer will also respect you more if you have a better understanding and know what you want and why...

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.

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...

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. ...

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...

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...
