Rick Silberman & Wesley James
The RiSiSi Deck: a synergy of synergies by Rick Silberman & Wesley James

The combination of special cards and sleight-of-hand is far more powerful than either alone. When the two are combined with inside knowledge, the resulting magic can be astounding in ways that enable you to leave audiences speechless and dumbfounded. The combination is synergistic: The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

When the minds of Rick Silberman and Wesley James combine with William Coffrin, Jean Hugard, and Fred Braue, you have a level of knowledge and experience rarely equaled in magic's long history. The whole is far greater than the sum of its parts.

When special cards, sleight-of-hand,...

David Jonathan
RudiMental by David Jonathan

This is a collection of five self-working, or semi-automatic, effects that share the key underlying theme that the spectator becomes the star, getting all the credit for the small miracles they just seemed to perform. RudiMental contains a variety of unique effects, most of which are hands off, and are very deceptive, yet simple in method. At their core, the foundation of each piece uses a practical, time-honored method that has been modernized, re-worked and applied in unique new ways.

Each effect is supplemented with a presentation script, multiple detailed photos and many additional tips,...

It appears Hoffmann was not too happy about breaking it up into parts.

A Treatise on the E.G. Brown 12-card Thought-of card Transportation

"One of the Strongest card effects you can ever perform."

"You can expect to hear audible gasps."

"...the roomful...sat speechless."

Like Out of Sight Discernment, Pedesis is an exception. It is an effect Wesley has been performing for nearly fifty years, always to stunned reactions from many hundreds of audiences.

Frank Bonville
The Little Secrets by Frank Bonville

A great book on the tricks of the trade of professional gamblers, how they cheat and get an advantage in the game. From the introduction:

It has been my fortune, or misfortune, whichever you wish to term it, to have traveled a good deal and to have observed not a little. I have engaged in more than one business; it pleased my fancy, and can say, with a pardonable pride, that I have met with some degree of success. During the past few years of my life I have studied human nature in all its phases, from its lowest forms in the gutter, in the slums, in the gilded dens of vice, in the gambling...

Raphaël Czaja
Colorful Journey by Raphaël Czaja

This trick is also included in Knocked For Six.

The four aces are removed from a red backed deck. The Ace of Spades is placed on top of the red deck as the three other aces are lost one by one into a blue deck. After a magical gesture, the aces disappear from the blue backed deck and reappear on top of the red deck, under the Ace of Spades!

Excerpts from a few Magic Cafe reviews:

"How the aces "move" seems to confuse the spectator...and they have a weird look on their face, like "how is this possible!??". What I personally like about this one is that you end clean!!!"

David Devlin
Nobunaga Rising by David Devlin

Many performers like to end their Ambitious Card routine by making the card vanish from the deck and cause it to reappear in some impossible location such as their wallet or the card box. The problem with that is that the effect of the Ambitious Card is that the selected card continuously rises to the top of the deck. Once the card vanishes from the deck, it is no longer the Ambitious Card. It is a vanished card. When it is produced from the wallet or wherever it becomes a reappearing card.

Nobunaga Rising is a perfect ending to the Ambitious Card because it seems just as impossible as the...
