... and a Pack of Cards

Jack Merlin

... and a Pack of Cards by Jack MerlinThis publication is in my opinion among the best books on cards ever written, but it is rarely mentioned or recommended. I am not sure why this is. Perhaps one reason is that Jack Merlin himself has not left a large footprint in the magic literature besides this one publication. He has a published trick in Expert Card Technique and if you read Card College 1 you will have learned the Jack Merlin's Riffle Shuffle. Farelli mentions in his Farell's Card Magic: "I agree with Mr. Jack Merlin that the custom of continually practicing in front of a glass is the cause of the unfortunate habit many magicians have of blinking at the precise moment of performing...

"Almost" Impromptu Vanishing Car

Ron Jaxon

"Almost" Impromptu Vanishing Car by Ron JaxonImagine 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....

"Margery" the Medium Exposed

Harry Houdini

"Margery" the Medium Exposed by Harry HoudiniHarry Houdini spent a good part of his life exposing mediums and 'unexplainable' phenomena. In this booklet he describes the case of the Boston "Margery" and the prize the Scientific American put up for true paranormal effects. He not only clearly describes and demonstrates the tricks of this very clever medium but also tells the difficulties surrounding the actual exposure. Houdini was world class in the role of the detective. It is fascinating to read how he sensitised his leg to be able to feel the slightest movement the medium made.

Margery or Mina Stinson (1888–1941) was born in Canada...

"Outs" Precautions and Challenges

Charles H. Hopkins

"Outs" Precautions and Challenges by Charles H. HopkinsThis is truly a hidden gem - a lost treasure. Very few know of its existence and you will encounter almost no references to it. When you read this you will ask yourself: "Why isn't this work known by every cardician?" Some of those who have read it value it as much as they value Erdnase. Others would not trade all card books published in the last 10 years for it.

It is an immensely practical work dealing with situations when something goes wrong, or you face difficult spectators. You'll never again be afraid to try out a new trick, even if they literally see what you do, even if they really catch...

(Menta)Lists

Alexander May

(Menta)Lists by Alexander May(Menta)Lists is a revolutionary system that allows the mentalist to predict the outcome of a game of word association.

Everybody is familiar with the game of word association. One person thinks of a word, then the next person says another word that can somehow be associated with it, and so it continues. For example: Frog - Green - Apple - Tree - Squirrel etc.

(Menta)Lists gives you the power to accurately predict the final word that will be named!

With (Menta)Lists they can now select their own words. That's right - they can think of ANY random words that come to mind... and you are...

1-2-3-4 Switch

Allan Ackerman

1-2-3-4 Switch by Allan AckermanThis is a very versatile switch allowing you to switch out one, two, three or four cards from a block of four. Allan got his inspiration from a 3 for 3 switch by Al Leech. One of the interesting parts of this video is that Allan shows the various transitions of his development going from Al Leech's move to Allan's final version.

10 Myths About Magic Exposed

Devin Knight

10 Myths About Magic Exposed by Devin Knight
"Devin Knight is the Guy Jarrett of our time. He exposes many common magic "facts" as myths and explains why they are not true and should not be believed. You can improve yourself and improve your magic if you stop taking to heart those age-old lies that magicians and magic dealers made up just to ease their conscience about taking money from strangers." - Jim Kleefeld

"A fast, informative, high-impact read from the ever-interesting Devin Knight. As magicians and mentalists, we often lose sight of the observations detailed here. Highly recommended!" - D. Ulin

These are lecture notes for one of Pavel's lectures. Most of the descriptions are pictorial. Pavel intended this as a memory aid for people who attended his lecture. The descriptions are therefore not necessarily complete or very detailed in all cases.

100% Magic Notes

Troy Murphie

100% Magic Notes by Troy MurphieI attended the Pavel 100% Magic Lecture when he visited Sydney, Australia sometime around 2005. I traveled the 2 hr drive home after the lecture and made sure to jot down notes about the effects that I was impressed with before I retired to bed that night. In hindsight I wish that I had written explanations for all the effects, but it was not to be. So what we have here are 8 items from this lecture explained in my own words. Along with the 100% Magic Lecture 'pictorial memory aid' which contains diagrams of the routines, you should have no trouble following the brilliant thinking behind these eight items.
