Devin Knight
The Soldier's Prayer Book by Devin Knight

This is an oldie but goodie, it helps solve a problem with certain church shows. Devin has often got phone calls from church groups asking for a magic show, but to not bring playing cards because the church frowns upon them as being sinful. Here is an effective and proven way to use playing cards in church groups that think cards are based on gambling and are of the devil. Yes, these people still exist today and this treatise gives an effective way to overcome this belief. Devin was raised in a household that forbid playing cards, but he used the technique in this e-book to change his family's...

David Devlin
Plan 9 by David Devlin

David Devlin loves gambling demonstrations. He is particularly partial to the routines that give the spectators the impression that the performer is an expert in card control and cheating. Very seldom does one find a gambling-type of effect that has the following characteristics:

  1. Completely impromptu
  2. It can be done with a borrowed deck
  3. It is performed entirely in the hands, which makes it ideal for strolling performers
  4. There are no false cuts, false shuffles, or false deals
  5. The spectators legitimately shuffle the deck several times throughout the routine
  6. The spectators do all of the...

David Devlin
A Few Good Methods by David Devlin

Transpositions are a staple in magic. The basic effect is simple: two objects switch places. That is it. What David has done in this eBook is that he has come up with five different ways to accomplish the transposition of selected playing cards.

The methods range from super easy to...well...not hard but not as super easy as some of the others. Some of the methods are totally impromptu, while others require a small amount of setup.

Those of you who are familiar with David's work already know that he does not like difficult sleights or overly complicated methods. So, you will not find any...

Gordon Miller
Anthology of Card Magic by Gordon Miller

Originally sold in three printed volumes, now combined in one gigantic PDF.

Ever since the Abbott Magic Company started business in 1934, hundreds of card tricks have been offered for sale in their catalogs. As each new catalog was published, many of these tricks were omitted to make room for newer ones ... but like good books, great music and fine art, these effects of card magic still remain classics. Gordon Miller, who has been a member of the Abbott staff for over thirty years, delved into the archives and compiled over three hundred of these effects into this huge collection. Almost...

Al E. Smith
Another Card Book by Al E. Smith

Oh No Not Another Card Book is probably a more apt title for a card book. In fact for any card book published since the printing press was first unleashed. On the other hand, what's wrong with another card book? That's a rhetorical question, since the obvious answer is nothing. Card fans can't get enough of their favourite fix and anything that only marginally irritates those non-persons who pretend they aren't fond of cards has got to be good news.

This collection is partly that; a revisit to some previously published oddments and a few new(?) assaults on familiar card-friendly themes. ...

Lewis Ganson
Expert Manipulation of Playing Cards by Lewis Ganson

Lewis Ganson, mostly known as author of magic books, was also himself an expert stage card manipulator. This ebook is a complete course in the art of manipulating playing cards, from back palms, to catching cards, card fans, flourishes, gimmicks and holders, and how to put it all together into a routine.

Paul Fleming wrote:

This recent work on card manipulation is divided into four sections which deal with (1) the back-palming of cards, (2) card fans, (3) card flourishes, and (4) suggestions for routines. Since we have no special knowledge of card fanning or card flourishes - and, because they lack...

Nick Conticello
The Catch-All Principle by Nick Conticello

[Note: If you purchase this together with Sunken Treasury: Part 1 and 2 and Sunken Treasury: Part 3, 4 and 5 you will get The Catch-All Principle for free. Discount is automatically applied in the shopping cart. Also applies if you have purchased the entire Sunken Treasury in the past.

The Catch-All Principle allows you to covertly position a free selection at a predetermined position in the deck. It does this with the help of two key cards. The real strength and novelty of this principle is that at crucial moments the spectator is free to cut the deck, which makes it seem impossible that the selection will end up at a predetermined position - but it does.

Perhaps the best use of this principle...

The performer then goes on to say "like all other people, Mr Stickman likes to go on holiday". With one quick shake the stickman drawing disappears from the back of the Ace of Diamonds which is then placed face-down on the table. The deck of cards...

George Armstrong
Premonition: an amazing mental card routine by George Armstrong

[Eddie Joseph and George Armstrong both published this effect in 1949 under the same name: Premonition. The effects are identical and the methods are also pretty much identical except some minor details. Since George Armstrong describes his inspiration and when and where he developed it, while Eddie Joseph does not, I believe George Armstrong to be the inventor of this method. George Armstrong's inspiration was an effect from Greater Magic by Bill McCaffrey. But already Hofzinser has a similar routine Domination of Thought from his Card Conjuring.

A spectator names a card. He is asked to take a pack of cards from the table, remove them...

Killing Classics 2 by Jozsef Kovacs

4/4
The performer randomly places 16 numbered cards onto the table. The spectator randomly chooses 4 quarter-sized cards from a deck of quartered cards and places them randomly onto the number cards. The spectator and the magician summarize the 4 chosen numbers. The performer counts down the same number of cards as the sum from a shuffled normal-sized deck of cards to get a random card. The performer turns the four, chosen, quarter cards face up. Together they form a whole jumbo card. The spectator turns the randomly determined, normal-sized card face up, and it is the same as the jumbo card. ...

4 Most by Peter Duffie

Four lovely card effects put together by Peter Duffie.

4-SOME: Here's a simple and automatic, yet highly effective, way to get four of a kind using the Fulves "Gemini Twins" concept.

Ray Noble
Double Whammy by Ray Noble

The Double Whammy is a fun and easy card effect that hits hard. I wanted a card routine that I could do anytime with a borrowed deck. This is an effect that will knock their socks off and have them falling on their knees yelling, "He is the chosen one!" Well, maybe not that strong of a guarantee, but an effect that really will show them that you are a magician. I have always had people shout out in excitement at the end of this routine. This is one of the routines that I always do when handed a deck of cards.

You are at a party and someone mentions that you are a magician. (HEY, it could...

Five Kinks by Ian Baxter

From the introduction by David Jones:

Ian loves to tinker! Given his strong creative abilities, this tinkering has more often than not, resulted in much improved effects, more streamlined methods, or both. Over the years, Ian has released a number of books and manuscripts that detail some excellent card effects. Numerous One Man Parades in the IBM monthly magazine The Linking Ring have also been published.

On one occasion I remember fooling many well informed card men at the prestigious FFFF meeting in New York State, with one of Ian's streamlined handlings of a classic card effect. ...
