Ulysses Frederick Grant
Fake Gambling Act by Ulysses Frederick Grant

EFFECT: A ten-minute routine or act as a demonstration of how the gambler cheats. Great for close-up work or a club act. In this new act; no sleights are required. Still, you apparently deal bottoms, seconds, four aces, winning hands, etc. For example, anyone shuffles the deck, cuts it and hands it to you; still you can deal yourself 4 aces.

It's a fake, that requires no practice, but they will never know it. Demonstrate your skill without lengthy practice. Appear to be a card expert, instantly. Yes, practically every magician has wished that he could present a good gambling demonstration....

Michael Kociolek
In Between by Michael Kociolek
"Not only this routine (and its variations) will badly fool people, but you will also badly fool yourself the 1st time you do it. Welcome to the very clever magic of Michal Kociolek." - Jean-Jacques Sanvert

"My seething hatred for Michal's genius can be best explained by the contents within these pages. This trick is just way too clever - you will fool yourself doing it the first time, and actually every time after that as well." - Harapan Ong

"Michal Kociolek specializes in incredibly clever stacked deck effects which always possess methods of labyrinthian beauty. His manuscript,...

Jon Racherbaumer
Piano Roles by Jon Racherbaumer

Jon loves to collect, compare, and organize tricks into themes and plots. This is his latest work on the piano trick.

WHAT IS THE PIANO TRICK?

A spectator places his hands palm down on the table in the same way a pianist places his hands on a keyboard. Then pairs of cards are placed between the spectator's fingers to set the stage. These pairs are then fairly removed to form two equal piles. An extra or "odd" card is added to one of the piles. Then, without any further movements or fanfare, the "odd" card inexplicably travels to the other pile.

Jack's Pack by Jack Yates

Jack Yates was a very clever and innovative magician who has somehow stayed below the radar and is completely unknown - undeservedly so - to many particularly in the US. Jack's Pack is a clever stacking method for finding any card in a deck by way of using numbers, names, words, etc.

Edited and with additional notes by Ken de Courcy.

Tom Phoenix
Peeks of Chaos by Tom Phoenix

Two devious peek devices for mentalists.

Every mentalist needs an arsenal of peek methods, be that a device, or a folding peek. The Peeks of Chaos contains two peek devices, each using the card box: the "Mockra Peek", and the "Meanas Peek". Each method is very deceptive, and the peek happens at a natural moment, with no funny movements.

Devin Knight
No Way! by Devin Knight

This is one of my all-time favorite card tricks (miracles); because after seeing it, most spectators say, "NO WAY!"

Imagine this; you spread a regular deck of cards face up between your hands. All the cards are seen to be different. You tell your spectator that you want him to remove one card behind your back so there is no way you can see the card he selected. You turn your back towards him and spread out the cards face up behind your back. He is asked to remove any card and not let you see what it is. Next he takes a Sharpie pen and puts his initials on the face of the card. He inserts...

Mark Elsdon
Pocketses by Mark Elsdon

This was my absolute favourite anytime-anywhere card miracle last year. I created it just before the Blackpool Magic Convention and so I've decided that the time is perfect to release it.

Effect: From a borrowed, shuffled deck you remove two single cards which you place into your pockets. You quite openly state that these are predictions: one card will match the suit, and the other card will match the value of the card that the participant is about to choose! The participant shuffles the deck and removes a card. 100% free choice, no force. Let's say it is the Ace of Hearts. You remove the...

Neal Elias
At the Table Tricks by Neal Elias

This quality volume contains 13 must-have card presentations and sleights, plus a no-sleight effect for the close-up entertainer. While not self-working, most rely on just one or two sleights. Easy-to-follow illustrations make the effects easy to understand and master.

Neal Elias was a confidant of Ed Marlo, Lin Searles, and other world class card experts. He also spent time as a demonstrator for George Snyder's magic shop in Cleveland, Ohio. No doubt several of Neal's creations will, after you read this ebook, find a place in your own routine.

Geoff Williams
Aronson Stack for Everybody by Geoff Williams

In 1979, Simon Aronson gave the world of magic an incredible tool - A Stack To Remember - which has come to be known as the "Aronson stack," a seemingly random arrangement of cards that has amazing miracle properties built into it.

Many magicians have avoided adding memorized deck work to their repertoires because of the daunting task of committing a stacked deck to memory. Struggling to grasp the associations of the cards and their locations within the stack, most quit after a few hours or days. I was the same way... until a Harry Anderson manuscript got me to thinking about how to make...

Paul A. Lelekis
The Magic of Michael Skinner by Paul A. Lelekis

Nine effects from the repertoire of Michael Skinner. Forward by John Carney is very informative. (John was one of Michael Skinner's dearest friends.) Michael gave John his "Notebook of Magic" before he passed.

The introduction provides a "deep insight" into the career, life, friends, and "thinking" of this very special man. Michael Skinner is considered to be the greatest magician of all time. His sleights, subtleties, nuances, misdirection, patter, trick selection, and pace were impeccable...and the size of his repertoire was profound. Skinner could perform over 600 different effects at his prime - and...

Nick Conticello
The Cerebral Approach: Book Four by Nick Conticello

Two locations based on a unique method.

No Mean Card Trick

Effect: From an unprepared pack he has just shuffled and cut, a spectator counts out ten cards and thinks of one. He buries the packet in the deck himself. The performer cuts the pack and deals out a 5x4 face-up array. He asks the spectator to think "yes" if his card is in the array. The performer confirms the card is on the table. Next the performer asks the spectator to concentrate on which horizontal row his card is in. After some effort, the performer discards the other three rows correctly. Finally, the spectator is asked...

N.I. Pectus
A Nice Choreography by N.I. Pectus

This nice choreography utilizes some basic moves and concepts to create an appearance of something real. It feels that the implications of the effect are real.

First the spectator examines a card, a Joker lets say, and it remains face up on the table. Afterwards the deck is spread face up in front of him and he is asked to move his finger, pointing always vertically towards the cards, from one end to the other. The spectator stops where he wants. The selection is determined - the four of clubs.

Not knowing what the reason for it might be, the spectator is advised to examine the Joker from...

Raphaël Czaja
Accans Family by Raphaël Czaja

EFFECT: A spectator shuffles a packet of number cards as much as he wants and deals through it to create a random number. Then, he deals through a blue-backed deck of playing cards (in which the magician put a red-backed prediction) and stops at his number. Let's say his card is the 7 of Clubs. Unbelievably, the red-backed prediction is the 7 of Clubs!

NB: The deck is always dealt face-up. Self-working. Happens in the hands of the spectator. Examinable. Quick reset. No gaff. Uses one regular deck and one red-backed card only. Includes a handling to perform it anytime during your act with...

Neo Shufflogica by Wesley James

Revisiting the False Shuffle for Artifice and Magic

There has not been a complete work on Shuffle technique since the early 1970's, yet Shuffle techniques have continued to advance. In fact, there has been a significant shift in the paradigm of those at the forefront of Shuffle techniques. Further, "In-the-Hands" techniques have become increasingly common, even in the magic fraternity, as they have been in the cheating community for many years. Now, for the first time, one of the most recognized experts on the subject has released the real work, including many of his own developments, for...

Larry Jennings, Ken Krenzel, Jim Patton and Gordon Bruce would agree. They all attended his past lecture.

Wolfgang Riebe
Fred Outdone Squared by Wolfgang Riebe

Based on the old 'Fred' card trick, Wolfgang launched his magician fooling version 'Fred Outdone' in 1990, causing a sensation amongst magicians and adding a unique twist in that the whole deck could be shown as a red back deck, except for the Fred card. In 2017 Wolfgang took the trick to new heights, hence the new 'Fred Outdone Squared' title.

It's as simple as any spectator naming any card, e.g. seven of hearts. The entire deck is shown to be red backs with different names on the back of each card. Even another seven can be shown to have a red back and different name. When the seven of...
