David Devlin

Out Numbered by David Devlin

Three boxed decks of cards are displayed to three spectators. It is explained that in the first two decks, two specific cards have been placed in two psychologically strategic spots. In the third deck, is proof that the psychological experiment is successful. This third deck is kept by the performer, but is always in full view.

The two spectators take their decks out of the boxes, and use business cards to randomly arrive at two different playing cards. The two cards from the first spectator’s deck are used to create a card. Let’s say that the two cards are the Two of Diamonds and the...

Dee Christopher

Article3 by Dee Christopher

Article3 is Dee Christopher's take on the classic "Three Article Test", which has previously been approached by the likes of Gene Grant (Phantini), Jack Miller and Eddie Joseph; however, all of the previous solutions have involved unjustified actions and often complicated crib sheets and processes. In Article3, all of the issues have been destroyed, leaving you with a perfect method for a wildly impressive demonstration of psychometry.

The basic effect is that three participants each hide one of three items (For instance; a coin, a ring and a watch) in their pocket while the mentalist is turned away or...

Scripted #16: Zodiac and Mom's Favorite by Larry Brodahl

A parlor or stage trick with a single method, but two vastly different scripts using totally different props. Fun and fooling.

Two tricks in one. Each with nearly identical handling but widely different effects.

In ZODIAC, you show a spectator pictures, one at a time, letting the spectator say "stop" whenever they wish. Their selection turns out to have been predicted in a message hanging in full view of the audience.

In MOM'S FAVORITE, you show the spectators playing cards, one at a time, again letting a spectator say "stop". Their selection turns out to have been predicted in a message...

Dr. RaMayne's Spirit Manifestations by Robert A. Nelson

Weird, eerie and baffling pseudo spirit manifestations are easy to accomplish with very little preparation or expense, once you know how.

That was the first line of Nelson's catalog ad for this nearly impossible to find manuscript, detailing the methods of fake mediums and con artists who presented seances to bilk the public. Why is this title so hard to find? Primarily because it was only advertised in three of the Nelson Enterprises catalogs. Some feel that the methods were used to spawn new fraudsters, instead of being used to inform the innocent public. Others believe that Nelson was...

Controlled Actions by Devin Knight

Effect: The magician says he will attempt to control a spectator's actions. The magician displays three envelopes numbered 1, 2, and 3 saying these are predictions. A participant selects three cards from a regular deck. The performer shows the participant three blank envelopes and asks for a number from 1 to 3.

The magician proceeds to write that number on the envelope and the participant takes one of his selections (no force) and the magician slides it into the envelope with the number the spectator named. This process is repeated with the other two envelopes and cards. The performer then...

Illusioni ed Evasioni by Ulysses Frederick Grant

"Grandi effetti, piccolo costo!" Questo motto riassume in breve le potenzialità di questo grande classico del Maestro Grant.

Magic of the Hands (softcover) by Edward Victor

This is the second edition from 1942, published by Max Holden. Some stains on the back cover and the last pages, and some damage to the spine, otherwise in good condition.

This is a classic in sleight-of-hand magic. From the foreword:

This BOOK is mainly on the art of sleight-of-hand and it is my earnest hope that these pages will afford practical help to both the specialist and the amateur magician.

During the period of over twenty-five years of practical magic I have formed the conclusion that in all conjuring, no matter how cleanly a trick may have been worked, it is the effect that...

Since many branches of Magic are again represented in this volume, a close study of it will, I sincerely hope, assist the reader in perhaps making some little change, addition or improvement in an existing 'move' or effect in which he may be interested.

I have included in this book my method of working and presenting "The Chinese Rings," mainly for those of...

Amusing Experiments in Physics, Chemistry and Geometry

The title is a little bit misleading, because there are no real magic tricks in this book, at least not the kind that a magician would assume. It is essentially a book of 'kitchen' science experiments. Some of these experiments can of course be presented like a magic trick. But the majority of them are simply interesting or surprising science experiments which can be done at...

The best way of learning new things is doing them. Magical Experiments or Science in Play is a fascinating collection of kitchen table top experiments with every day household goods. Many of which have a 'magical' twist to them, in the sense that it is for the unfamiliar observer not quite clear how these tricks are performed, or what the physical mechanisms behind them are. More than 150 experiments are described with gorgeous lithographs. This book was originally written in French and later translated to English. This in...

Disaster to Laughter by Brian T. Lees

As magicians we are hired to entertain. The show must go on is a harsh truth that we all accept responsibility for. The fact is performances do not always take place without problems. If you have ever found yourself standing in the lights, with a failed trick you know what I am talking about. The audience knows the magic was a complete flop. There is no one else on stage with you. When that happens, we all promise we will never put ourselves in that situation again.

Your magic may be "performance ready" but is it also "audience ready"? This text talks about conditioning for the unexpected....

The Red Hot Coin Revealed by Devin Knight
"This is perhaps, the greatest 'come on', or 'bally stunt' the world has ever known." - Floyd Thayer
This is a sadly forgotten effect that was a big hit back in vaudeville, but overlooked by today's magicians. It has been used by Thurston, Blackstone Sr., U. F. Grant, Tommy Windsor and other great magicians. This is one of the funniest routines in magic and you don't have to be a comedian or comedy performer to pull it off. It always results in hilarious laughter.

The premise is simple; the performer invites a boy up and shows him a half-dollar. The performer says, "This is the one and only RED HOT COIN. After years...
