Shigeo Futagawa
Introduction to Coin Magic by Shigeo Futagawa

I have studied personally for almost two years with Shigeo Futagawa in Yokohama, Japan. He is without a doubt one of the top coin workers living today. A humble man who would have all the right in the world to be not quite so humble. Introduction to Coin Magic is a wonderful book. It is not just for the beginning coin student but for anybody who would like to brush up on some basic moves and learn several new outstanding routines.

Another interesting feature of this book is the several short bios of famous magicians inserted throughout the book. You will find people like Slydini, Han Ping Chien,...

Louis Nikola
Magical Masterpieces by Louis Nikola

The most famous invention of Nikola is his card system, which is described in The Nikola Card System and in an abbreviated version in Encyclopedia of Card Tricks. Cards are not the only area Nikola excelled in.

From the inside cover: Magical Masterpieces is no mere fanciful title. It is an apt description of a selection from the accumulated repertoire of a practical magician whose outstanding characteristic is the painstaking perfection and stamp of individuality of all his productions. It is safe to say that if a new book of magic provides only one workable and suitable addition to the reader's store it is a sound investment. The magician...

Jon Racherbaumer
Sticks and Stones: a leaflet for the left hand by Jon Racherbaumer

Racherbaumer, a man of words - sometimes strong words, sometimes exotic words, sometimes provocative words, sometimes strange words - but always thoughtful and worth reading, wrote a two year column in The Greater Son of the Bat Jr. journal (S.O.B.jr.). All 24 installments of this column are collected here. You will find a lot of Marlo-vian talk, good tricks and interesting articles. I was not a magician in the late 70s, so I cannot say how it was back then in the 'good old times', but reading Sticks and Stones allowed me to imagine how - I am sure - it must have been.

Cardeceits by Peter Duffie

Twenty fine card tricks.

1st edition, 2003.

A Pain in the Ace: You push a selected card into the middle of the deck - it rises to the top. You push it back into the middle and flip over the top card. Unfortunately it's not the selection. It's an Ace. You - or a spectator - give the deck a fair cut to bury the face up Ace in the middle. Upon spreading the deck all four Aces are now face up together in the middle - but there's one face down card caught in the middle. This proves to be the awkward selection.

The ROLEX Gang: You remove the four Aces then place a random card between them....

Untold by Peter Duffie

Fifteen clever tricks with cards.

1st edition, 2002.

SEVEN DOWN: Seven Down was inspired by Ed Marlo's "Magic Seven."

DRAW POKER: This trick came about as a direct result of a conversation with Roy Walton, who had a card problem which he quickly solved and published in OPUS.

FALLING: The following routine is based on Roy Walton's superb "Cascade". Here several Jumbo cards are caused to mutate in a bizarre and visual manner. This was originally called "The Mutant Hand," but I changed the title for this ebook in view of the recently marketed Cascade variation "Mutanz" to avoid confusion with names.

1st edition, 1995.

ILLUSION Versus REALITY: This is a direct and magical production of the four Aces, with two of the Aces seemingly appearing in the hands of a spectator.

THREESIGHT: A simple, but effective, prediction using the Gilbreath Principle.

IN PLACE: This simple trick is an ideal one to perform for anyone at a moment's notice. It uses what is often referred to as the Automatic Placement.

CENTRAL RESERVATIONS: This is essentially a small packet version of Paul Curry's "Power of Thought," and a possible miracle single card prediction.

Collecstasy: Three Kings magically collect two selections......now where have I seen that plot before?

Marraid: You cut the deck four times - each time a face up King appears. You now find a random card for each King by using their suits. When these cards are turned over they prove to be the four Queens - each paired perfectly with the correct King.

Ulterior Motifs by Peter Duffie

Twenty card tricks from the inventive Scotsman.

THOSE ENIGMATIC ROYALS: A simple idea based on the Vernon 'Card Puzzle' and inspired by Peter Kane's 'Royal Families' from his booklet A Further Card Session, plus Roy Walton's "Split Up" from The Complete Walton, Vol.1.

A SENSE OF FREEDOM: This is based on a number prediction by Shigeo Futagawa using four pieces of cardboard (See "Stunumbers" in Karl Fulves' Self-Working Number Magic, Dover). The only weak point was that the prediction couldn't be written until an advanced stage in the proceedings. The following effect uses playing cards and there is no need to worry...

Eleven card tricks from the inventive Scotsman.

1st edition, 2000.

PSYCHOGRAPHY: Before you begin, you remove a card from the deck and, without showing its face, you place it between a spectator's hands. This, you state, is a sprit photograph that has yet to be taken. You now allow another spectator a free choice of any card in the deck and have him sign his name across the face. This card is lost into the middle of the deck which you then give to a spectator. You now remove two cards from your pocket - these two cards have completely blank faces - these, you state, are the photographic...

Twenty-one card tricks from the inventive Scotsman.

BACKLOG: You spread the deck with the faces upwards and invite a spectator to select any card - free choice. This is left face up on the table. You give him the deck and he now spells the name of his card - first the suit, then the value. This produces two random cards. The values of these cards are added - they might be a 3 and a 10 = 13. When the spectator turns his card over it has the number 13 boldly written on the back!

THE FLEEING ACES: The four Aces travel from one half of the deck to the other and capture a previously selected card.

FOUR TO THE FORE: A spelling effect based on an Henry Christ premise. Two single Bottom Deals are required but they happen on the off-beat and a fine technique is not necessary.

You pick these up and turn them over whereupon the first spectator's selection appears reversed between them. You place this sandwich on the table then pick up the two black Kings, which you place face up on top of the deck and give...

PSYCHIC MATH: This is a card discovery that appears impossible for two reasons: first, it doesn't seem possible for you to know where the card is in the pack, and second, the card is found using the values of two random cards that were selected before the trick began.

You give two spectators each a packet of four cards and you have a similar packet. Each packet contains two black cards and two red cards. The idea is simple - you place one card face down on the table, and both spectators place one of their cards on top. The idea is get three cards all of the same color. The only problem is that neither of you are allowed to look at the faces of your cards. However, a 100-percent color match is guaranteed....
