Science and Mechanics

Magic Handbook (Science and Mechanics) by Science and MechanicsThis is the only all magic issue of Science and Mechanics magazine. It includes a cross section of magic effects from illusions with building instructions, to various close-up effects and mentalism. The emphasis with this magazine was to encourage readers to build their own. It therefore has a distinct DIY feel. The magic consultants for this issue were William B. Gibson, Sidney H. Radner, Litzka Raymond, and Victor D. Dressner.

Paul Curry

Magician's Magic by Paul Curry"Magician's Magic is an appropriate title for this ebook because the author, Paul Curry, is surely one of the world's best-known 'magician's magicians.'" The words are those of Martin Gardner, Scientific American's mathematical divertisements editor, himself a distinguished amateur magician and author.

"For some thirty years, Paul Curry has been inventing tricks and sleights of such beautiful simplicity that they have become standard items in the repertoire of close-up performers of magic throughout the world."

The performing of magic draws practitioners from every field - doctors, lawyers, actors,...

Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

Stay! by Ralf (Fairmagic) RudolphBorrow a pen, write with it, and then casually remove your hand, while the pen remains standing unsupported.

This is best performed as an off-beat effect where folks do not expect a trick, but the magic just happens. The pen is unprepared. The notebook hides the gimmick which is for all practical purposes invisible.

Bonus routine is a rubber band ring linking effect. A borrowed ring is linked into two rubber bands. This can be performed impromptu.

Wanna Bet? by Frances MarshallA lively and interesting, compelling collection of little known ideas, often referred to as "betchas".

Great for bars, lunch table, offices, coffee break, parties, hospitality suites, young peoples affairs, etc. Although you introduce them as an impromptu stunt, you actually have a set program in mind for best results. These amusing little gags can make you the...

Mark Elsdon

Hidden Gems by Mark ElsdonThe best magic that you're not doing. This brand new eBook is a road map to great magic you already own...

For several years, the last item in my occasional Newsletters was a 'Hidden Gem' - a killer, overlooked trick that's already published somewhere; a book, magazine, eBook, blog or very occasionally a commercial release. Never from a DVD or video download. These are tricks that define the very concept of 'hidden in print'. In each entry I list the trick, where you can find it, why I love it and why you should look it up. I always describe the effect, occasionally the presentation, but never...

David Devlin

Presidential Optical Opener by David DevlinWhen David released The Optical Opener he had no idea that it would be so wildly popular. It is an effect that David has used for quite a long time, but it is not his first application for the Thatcher Illusion. David released the effect as he did because it is a great opening effect for any show. But that is kind of the issue. It is for a show. It is not something that can be apparently done impromptu (unless, of course, you put the images on your electronic device).

This is the original application that David came up with for this great optical illusion: The magician removes a Dollar bill from his wallet....
