Jon Racherbaumer
Mulling Over Mexican Joe by Jon Racherbaumer

'Mexican Joe' refers to a specially crimped card or deck, one that is crimped at diagonal corners in opposite directions.

The first person to publish anything on this crimp was Victor Farelli when he published Farelli's Card Magic. Several years passed before another mention is made. This time it was explained in Dai Vernon's More Inner Secrets of Card Magic. Racherbaumer collects a number of routines and ideas with this crimp. In so doing he weaves his way through some interesting nooks and crannies of card magic history.

Ken Muller
Full-On Mystique by Ken Muller

The ebook details the history, theory, psychology, and techniques of the 'Full-On' coin production approach developed over many decades.

Four different methods are explained, each slightly different to accommodate different settings/framing, but each remembered as Full-On.

There are no effects in this ebook. Check out Eminent Coin Production as one way to combine all four methods. Each method can be a 'stand-alone' production mixed with other favorite methods.

The search was for the perfect coin production of one or several coins from thin air where both hands are displayed as completely empty. The standard...

Unknown Mentalist
Psycho Path by Unknown Mentalist

The mind reader begins by saying "Let's play an interesting game. Imagine you are a 'psychopath' on the run and I am a 'psychic detective'. We will use 4 continents and 4 directions...." And ends the effect by absolutely stunning the participant with an impossible-looking divination.

At its core, this is a quick, high-impact propless piece that you can deploy in almost any situation like on a voice call, in a virtual show, face to face close up, parlour, street etc. The performer divines the exact personality trait of a psychopath. The entire routine can be performed in about a minute. ...

August Roterberg
Catalogue of New Card Miracles by August Roterberg

From the introduction:

The clever creations in the following pages are the result of the great demand for card tricks which has swept the magical world. A few years ago practically all card tricks depended upon skill in sleight of hand. There were few, if any, real good tricks which the inexperienced could successfully perform without previous practice. The sudden demand of tricks for this nature has resulted in the invention of many clever and puzzling effects by some of the masterminds of the Magical Profession.

In the following pages are offered, for the first time, a collection...

Ken Muller
Tap 3 Times by Ken Muller

This is a multi-phase impromptu routine using three borrowed quarters or other found objects - just an introductory "attention grabber" I have used for many decades.

One coin penetrates your hand, then all three. With full attention now, the coins migrate one at a time to the other hand - not a 3Fly as the coins are waist high and the hands are shown empty between phases (no gaff or extra).

Five simple bits of magic in growing intensity and under increasing scrutiny - fully surrounded. Not for beginners. Moderate coin skills, confidence, and live human interaction experience required....

The Magical Entertainer by P. T. Selbit

The subtitle reads: Teaching you how to give a complete evening's entertainment of new conjuring tricks with highly-amusing patter, laughable ventriloquism and a diverting magical sketch.

From the introduction:

In venturing the contribution of a second magical manual to the already large library of works on conjuring, we are impressed with the belief that however modest our attempt may be we are at least going a step in the direction toward still further popularizing the art of the conjurer. We believe it is necessary for magic to be given to the public more as an amusing entertainment...

Eminent Coin Production by Ken Muller

An "almost perfect" production of four individual coins from thin air. This is ideal as a prelude for an effect like Coins Across, Coins Thru Table or even 3Fly.

  1. both hands are displayed as completely empty
  2. a coin is snatched from the air by the openly shown right fingers
  3. a second coin is seen to visibly materialize and is plucked for thin air by the left fingers
  4. the righthand coin is added to the one on the left palm with both hands shown otherwise empty (Note: There is no movement to the body and then hands never touch - no gaffs either.)
  5. a third coin is seen to materialize in the air...

Ian Baxter
Seven at a Picnic by Ian Baxter

John Racherbaumer's latest compendium Picnic Pocus, has certainly revived interest in that long-standing Ace revelation, Poker Player's Picnic. Published years back in The Royal Road to Card Magic, it is a routine most of us perform when starting out in card magic, but eventually, drop from our repertoire due to the odd counting method involved.

Ian Baxter's new approach to this classic has solved this problem, providing a clear rationale for the procedure and adding touches that considerably enhance the routine's effectiveness while still maintaining the sleight-free handling of the original. Clever thinking at work here! This new version is worthy...

Felipe Suau & Biagio Fasano
A CAAN Duel by Felipe Suau & Biagio Fasano

A C.A.A.N. Duel is a pair of incredible card magic effects of the 'Card At Any Number' theme. In the first effect, which gives the eBook its title, a complete deck of 52 cards, possibly also borrowed, is shuffled at will by a spectator who will take part in a challenge. The challenge is to guess which card is located at a given number between 1 and 52. After giving an initial example, we move on to the actual challenge: the magician begins, demonstrating his great skill in the matter by announcing (and writing on a notepad) the card, even before knowing the number that the spectator is going...

From the foreword by Will Goldston:

Although in writing this book, the author's thought has been mainly for the beginner, I feel confident that advanced magicians will find a good deal of very useful material in "THE CONJURER'S VADE MECUM." Mr. Orrin writes clearly and concisely, and in doing so draws upon a store of knowledge acquired by practical experience. He gives many a useful little hint as to the choice of tricks for different occasions, and in describing each trick he comes straight to the point and explains, first the effect and then the method of working, and finally adds suggestions for...
