Exit 51 (for resale) by (Benny) Ben Harris
"A beautifully realized moment of astonishment ... the new gimmick is very clever indeed!" - Paul Harris

"A stunning vanishing deck that takes an original idea by Paul Harris and sends it to the moon." - Richard Kaufman

The remarkable effect shifts "the moment" in Paul Harris' amazing Vanishing Deck allowing for a card to be selected and signed.

This selected card is shuffled back into the deck which is then held in full view.

Upon command, the entire deck visually vanishes (that's right - it just blinks out of being) leaving only the chosen card as a poignant applause cue.

Exit 51 is...

Quarks and Quirks (for resale) by (Benny) Ben Harris
"Some of the most clever takes on the Torn and Restored Card in years, Ben Harris' Quarks & Quirks is an invigorating journey of topological twists and tears." - Richard Kaufman
A journey beyond the tear, inspired by the weird world of Quantum Physics. In this superbly produced book, filled with photographs Ben Harris shares seven routines. Includes:

THE QUARTER BACK TEAR

A method for apparently tearing a card cleanly in half, while in reality, only tearing one quarter from the card. This sets you up as either a "quarter ahead" or a "quarter behind" depending upon the intended application....

Checkout Chi: pay with your mind by (Benny) Ben HarrisCheckout Chi is the first new effect from Ben Harris in ages. And, it's been worth the wait.

Checkout Chi will drop the jaws of your audiences when YOU PAY for the restaurant bill, bar tab, groceries, gasoline, movie tickets, or what have you--WITH YOUR MIND. No cash, no credit cards, just your mind!

And, it's genuine: The vendor gets paid. A receipt is issued. All is above board.

Seriously, this is the kind of impromptu magic that makes reputations. The moment arising from a real-world situation (having to pay the bill), and the solution (paying the bill with magic), proving your mastery...

A Thought Well Stolen by (Benny) Ben HarrisA Thought Well Stolen combines two of magic's great card effects - Any Card At Any Number, and Paul Curry's Out Of This World - into a wicked hybrid; morphing them into a mind-blowing frenzy. Can you even imagine what this resultant offspring would look like?

As in Any Card At Any Number, the performer reveals the identity of a freely though-of card - and its position in a deck - without asking a single question. Seriously, this is solid and gripping mentalism; there is no force, the card is a free mental selection and no questions are asked. Having read his spectator's mind, discerning his card and its position in the deck, the performer...

If you appreciate creative ideas because this will spur you on to thinking of alternative applications for the many props that are lying idle in your magic drawers, then this book is highly recommended for you." - John Teo

Packet Magic by (Jerry) J. K. HartmanFrom the introduction:
The title suggests that the routines to be described solely involve small packets of cards. To that extent, it is inaccurate. Many of the routines utilize the full deck in varying degrees. The excuse is that they center around small groups of cards which by themselves are identifiable as packets, and thus can be combined in longer sequences with routines using those groups alone.

Small packet routines seem to have a certain niceness and precision about them and thus have a particular fascination for cardmen. Fortunately, laymen are generally impressed as well, ascribing...

This routine is a blend of a card effect and a couple of simple coin moves, designing a game of choices that ends on a high note. In brief, three spectators freely select a number and a card, then they switch places, which means they will receive the number of somebody else, but their card still appears at that new number.

It can either be presented as card magic or as a mentalism effect, both close-up or on stage, depending on your performing taste or choice. Everything appears fair and square,...

A Thought Covertly Conveyed by Abhinav BothraA hybrid of a card trick and the plot spectator as mind reader dressed in the clothes of hypnosis.

Spectator 1 selects a card and places it back in the deck which is then put into the box. Spectator 2 is asked to close his/her eyes and is put through a simple process at the end of which he/she names the card.

Honest Notes:

The card is a force card (any card among the 52 will do) and it is conveyed through some physical factors supported by the script.

In here you'll find my script in English, which can easily be adapted to any language and is not bound by any particular word/s. And...

A Thought Stumbled Upon by Abhinav BothraA couple of people are invited to participate in a trick - any 4 of a kind gets chosen, one of the 4 cards is then given to Participant no. 1 by Participant no. 2. Participant 1 who has no knowledge of the card in his hand correctly deduces the suit and then the value of the card.
  • Borrowed and Shuffled Deck.
  • No Forces.
  • Easy to do.
Honest Notes:
  • This needs a table or a working surface.
  • A fact (stated twice in the patter), a phrase and the casualness of the performer's is what makes this possible.
  • Included in here is the script (fully customizable) and a short video (download from...

Business Cards by Abhinav Bothra8 excuses to hand out business cards

Accurate - Based on Andrew Gerrad's Accuracy, it's different but impromptu. 3 objects are hidden one in each hand and one in a card box. And the performer deduces the location of each of those objects.

Brief But Accurate - Accurate made short but still effective

B4 Esperience - This is how Esperience used to look like before what it is now.

Dismantle - Spectator reads the thoughts of another spectator.

Haptic - A fun little piece that deals with unconscious cognition and utilizes your sense of touch

Crisis by Abhinav Bothra
  • To stay economical at those unpaid charity gigs we all do
  • To be less dependent on the facilities offered at small venues everyone at some point of time performs at
  • To tackle the unfortunate lost-luggage situations that can happen anytime

Crisis is a 20-30 minutes of semi-scripted and field tested set of mentalism (predictions and mindreading) with nothing except a 3x3 inch post-it pad and a marker and 3 minutes of preparation (no arts...
