Harlan Tarbell

Tarbell Post-Graduate Service in Magic No. 1 by Harlan TarbellAfter Tarbell finished his 60 lesson Tarbell Course he decided to continue with post-graduate lessons.

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.

Trevor Lewis

Orbital by Trevor LewisYou place a prediction in view. A spectator names any number between 1 and 50. You show a deck of cards and (without cutting or any moves) you count to that number. That card matches the prediction! Easy to do. No rough and smooth. [Note: These are merely the instructions that came with the prepared deck. You will not receive any cards. But it is easy to make up your own from a couple of duplicate cards.]

Ananta Deb Banerjee

Designed to Deceive by Ananta Deb BanerjeeMr. Deb was initiated into magic at an early age. As a teenager, he was inspired by the Late P.C. Sorcar’s Magic Shows, and soon started performing his own magic shows in local clubs on many occasions. He developed an interest in the 'mechanics' of tricks and started making his own props in his own small home workshop. He gained a wealth of knowledge by avidly reading a wide variety of books on this subject.

The eight effects described in this ebook are mechanical self-working props, that "do" the magic. The performer has little else to do, once the props are ready, than pull the correct...

Soumya's Brainstorm by Soumya DebSoumya Deb is one of the most prolific magic ideas-men it has been Sam Dalal's privilege to come across. Sam has been inundated by contributions from him. He has regularly sent several contributions for every Electro Fun Update, although space and the requirements of variety restrict the publication to a small fraction of his ideas.

When Sam told Soumya they would put out his better ideas in book form, he again received twice as much material as they could possibly use. This ebook brings you the best and most practical of his "brain storms" spanning from novel card tricks to easy to make...
