Michael MacDougall
Card Mastery by Michael MacDougall

Michael MacDougall explains new sleights, new methods of culling and stacking, new bottom steal, and more. Of interest to all card men, magicians and demonstrators. The second part of the book is S.W. Erdnase's seminal work on the art of sleight of hand with playing cards, The Expert at the Card Table.

Paul Fleming wrote:

To call this book Card Mastery is to adopt the attitude that it is fitting and proper for the tail to wag the dog. For nearly three-fourths of the book consists of a reprint of S. W. Erdnase's great work, The Expert at the Card Table, and only a trifle more than one-fourth is the contribution of Mr. MacDougall. An actual count...

Nick Conticello
Pyramid Prophecies by Nick Conticello

From the introduction:

This ebook is a bit of a departure for me. The material is mathematical, but it need not be performed with playing cards. It can be performed with pencil and paper close-up, or with a blackboard or a dry-erase white board in platform or stage settings. Thus it can be employed in situations when the use of playing cards would be inappropriate. However, I will describe these effects with playing cards as that is how I use them.

The basic idea is that the performer predicts the sum of a seemingly random array of cards or numbers. The spectator has quite a bit of control...

(Benny) Ben Harris
A Thought Well Stolen by (Benny) Ben Harris

A Thought Well Stolen combines two of magic's great card effects - Any Card At Any Number, and Paul Curry's Out Of This World - into a wicked hybrid; morphing them into a mind-blowing frenzy. Can you even imagine what this resultant offspring would look like?

As in Any Card At Any Number, the performer reveals the identity of a freely though-of card - and its position in a deck - without asking a single question. Seriously, this is solid and gripping mentalism; there is no force, the card is a free mental selection and no questions are asked. Having read his spectator's mind, discerning his card and its position in the deck, the performer...

David Devlin
The Untouchables by David Devlin

This is a new Any Card at Any Number effect in which (apparently) the spectator does all of the work, and it happens all in his hands. Not only that, but the performer has predicted the entire outcome; the card and the number, far in advance! This is all true. The performer never touches the deck once the effect begins.

Here is the effect as the audience sees it: The deck is shuffled by a spectator. The performer has any spectator think of any number between one and fifty-two, but not to reveal it to anyone until asked by the performer. Nothing is written down. The number is simply thought...

Nick Conticello
Reveries by Nick Conticello

Here we offer three new approaches to Bob Hummer's classic Mindreader's Dream effect. A spectator merely thinks of a card and out of the performer's view deals some cards to impress the card on the subject's unconscious mind. The dealt cards are lost in the pack. The performer asks the spectator some questions, studies the subject's nonverbal responses, and slowly but surely names the thought-of card.

One method requires a small stack, the other two are impromptu. All use ordinary cards and no sleights. The deck need not be complete.

This item will be of interest to mentalists and card...

Ferry Gerats
The Funniest Three Card Monte in the World by Ferry Gerats

Three card monte. Almost no skill. The given presentation guarantees lots of laughs.

Why the funniest?

Well, here is what happens: The routine starts with a funny joke about a three-card-monte player. The joke conjures up a crazy image in the minds of the audience that elicits huge laughter. The next laugh comes from the fact that the spectator who is invited to play the betting-game is asked to keep track of the odd card while it is clear that the odd card has grown in size and protrudes from the other cards. With the 1st round of the betting-game there comes a laugh when it is clear...

Greater Card Tricks by Eddie Joseph

This was Eddie Joseph's first card publication. As such, coming out in 1942, it represented already at that time 20 years of performing. It's unbalanced contents shows very much that it is not simply a book of card magic, but a summary of Joseph himself as a card man and his particular biases and interests. A chapter on his particular way of doing the fundamental sleights he depended upon and an entire chapter on the intelligent use of daub.

Harry Lorayne
Deck-Sterity by Harry Lorayne

This is mostly an ebook on card magic but it also has a few effects with coins, dollar bills and cigarettes. By far the best routine in the ebook is the "Ten Card Poker Deal". It is a hugely entertaining, dynamic routine in which ten cards culled from the deck are dealt into two poker hands in a multitude of ways, but somehow, the magician's hand always ends up winning. The effect is virtually self-working and Harry's routining turns it into a real reputation maker.

From the Foreword:

Of course, I can't make an entertainer out of you. I can include effects and routines in my books with...

Deckology: Mystic Deck by Unknown Mentalist

This is essentially numerology expressed via a deck of cards. If you have a side for mysticism and or numerology this will be of interest to you.

A deck of 52 playing cards is a mini representation of this Creation itself where Time is ultimate. Hidden deep inside a deck of playing cards are many inner secrets. This ordinary looking deck of playing cards is in fact a representation of forgotten mysteries coded by our ancient mystics. The biggest secret is that each card is 'lucky' for someone at some time.

Harry Stanley
Magic With Jumbo Cards by Harry Stanley

These are effects you can do with a jumbo deck of cards preferably on stage or in a parlor setting.

Many standard playing card 'moves' are possible with Jumbos, though, obviously, because of their size, the accent must be on subtlety rather than manipulation.

The performer should make the most of the many opportunities for comedy, inherent in the very use of cards of such an unusual size. The very fact of asking a spectator to 'shuffle' such a pack, is funny in itself ... and, where it suits the performer’s style, no opportunity should be lost, to allow the spectators to 'mix' the cards. ...
