TacTics by (Benny) Ben Harris2002 and a small lecture tour. Harris needed an oddity that would contrast his card work. Some visual and aural distraction. TacTics was the answer. 150 units were assembled, fingers burned, and instructions written. The item was quite popular and did end up in an issue of Genii. Here is the original manuscript, re-edited and with clear photos. Ideas with color-changes, sound-based illusion and the "Milk Pitcher" application allowing you to vanish tictacs, half a container at a time, till they're ALL GONE!

Sweet Spot by (Benny) Ben HarrisInspired by a recent internet challenge, Ben Harris has "Le Pauled" the regular baggie! This creates a clever and practical alternative to the traditional Card In Wallet plot.

With Sweet Spot, a card, a coin, a borrowed ring or a credit card is made to vanish only to appear seconds later IN THE MIDDLE of the contents of a sealed baggie.

This can be filled with sand, candies, stamps, money, oregano, or whatever you want. The presentation angles are up to you. We give you a few to start with like the "Magic Sands of the Sahara," "Mr Blonds Revenge," "The Stamp Collector," "My Favorite Coin...

Al Baker

Al Baker's Book by Al BakerFrom the introduction:
Showing a trick is comparatively easy to putting it clearly in print, and I want to thank Anneman for his judicious use of the blue pencil, finding spots where I could write less and tell more, and in general, being a marvelous deleter and paraphraser.

To John Northern Hilliard, whom I consider the greatest writer on Magic as an Art, I want to extend my sincere thanks for the encouragement that caused me to start and finally finish my maiden effort, to wit: Al Baker's Book.

Al Baker

Al Baker's Second Book by Al BakerFrom the introduction:
In presenting my "second" book to the magical fraternity I have kept in mind the old saw, "Brevity is the soul, not only of wit, but applies to many magical tricks".

I have tried to make the text brief and, by giving plenty of illustrations, cut down on too much solid type. I give no patter as I feel that every entertainer should be himself and develop a style of his own.

Fred Keating rose to stardom. "The Bird Cage", "Sympathetic Silks" and "Card in the Cigarette" were marvellous in his hands; others copied, but Keating's name still lives. "Be a magician, not...

My Favorite Linking Ring Columns by Aldo ColombiniFor several years Aldo had a column in the Linking Ring magazine. At the time Phil Willmarth was the editor and he was so kind and open minded enough that he basically let Aldo make fun of everything and everyone.

The columns not only contained some good magic but Aldo was able to include some funny stuff as well. Also, between tricks and gags you will find suggestions on how to improve your presentations with regards to our art of magic.

The structure of the column was an easy one: 1) Some fun and 2) some magic and it worked. Aldo has collected in this e-book many of his favorite columns...
