(Benny) Ben Harris
Singapore Lecture Notes by (Benny) Ben Harris

Ben Harris' first set of lecture notes from his first ever lecture in 1985— re-written, re-photographed...

These notes have been re-written and re-photographed. The material is bright, crisp and hard-hitting. Mostly cards, including a wonderful multi-phase OIL AND WATER routine that's a joy to perform. PYRAMID CARDS is an easy and visual stunt revelation that was originally created by Jay Sankey. Here are a couple of cool variations. COMING TOGETHER AGAIN is a real killer item based on a Sadowitz piece from Almanac (see demo video below).

The real highlight is the closer Ben used on both nights in Singapore....

David Gemmell
Pasteboard Adventures by David Gemmell

A collection of routines from David Gemmell's working repertoir. Difficulty varies from effect to effect and is in the reach of most magician.

From the introduction by Jon Racherbaumer:

A few years ago Eugene Burger introduced a useful phrase to Cardopia—one that partially describes what passionate card guys do on a regular basis: to overly indulge themselves in the "antics of the pasteboards." Antics is the apt word because it evokes other defining words: playful, fantastic, theatrical, whimsical…

Those who memorialize their personal "antics" realize the nature of their acts. They take notes....

Open Ended: A monograph on the open prediction by David Gemmell

This is a collection of solutions to the famous 'open prediction' problem posed by Paul Curry.

From the introduction by Marc Paul:

Ever since Paul Curry first posed his now famous card problem magicians have sweated over the idea of creating the perfect Open Prediction. It seems that the first published solution appeared in Phoenix magazine (December 1949) in a letter from Gerald Kosky to Bruce Elliott. Since then the list of people who have offered ideas and solutions is huge and includes the likes of Marlo, Dai Vernon, Bill Simon, Martin Gardner, Peter Warlock, Francis Haxton, to name but a few, and of course Stewart James and his infamous...

S.C-A.R-E.D by Jamie Daws
"It's one of the cleverest Haunted deck methods I've seen!" - Peter Duffie, MAGIC Magazine, May 2009
For Many years, the "Haunted Deck" effect has been favored and loved by all magicians. The old methods to create this fantastic effect were fiddly and sometimes tricky to perform easily. As of late, brand new versions of it have been released like "Really Haunted" and "Spirit" from Alakazam. All, of course used a gimmick that would have to be carried with you. But what if? What if you had the effect on you all the time as long as you carried a deck of cards? What if there was no gimmick in your deck...

Shipwrecked by Jamie Daws

Including "s.p.A.C.E.d" - featured in the May 2009 edition of Magic Magazine.

Bottoms up!
Effect: A joker is shown to the audience and placed face up on top of the deck. The cards are then spread and two cards are selected and signed. The selected cards are lost into the centre of the deck. The Joker is displayed on top of the deck and with a wave turns into the first signed card. With a flick, the first signed card turns into the second signed card! Then once placed into the spectator hand, the selection turns back into a joker. For your finale, you place the joker face up on top of the...

Valentine by Jamie Daws

Looking for the perfect romantic card trick? Then check out Valentine!

A card is selected and signed with a heart by your spectator. The card is lost in the deck. The Three of hearts is shown to the spectator and the magician asks her to watch the middle heart very closely. At that moment you visually pluck the middle heart from the three and throw it onto a stack of cards on the table. The Three has visablly turned into a two and the heart now lays on the table! You place the two on the table and turn over the card that the heart has landed on. Its the signed card! At that point you collect...

Barry Ray
Barry's Stacked Deck by Barry Ray

This is a stack that retains the simplicity of a Si Stebbins or Eight Kings stack, but randomizes colours and suits.

Why Another Stacked Deck?

The two most popular stacked decks are Si Stebbins and Eight Kings. Why should this be so? Because both systems are easy to do, under fire, under pressure and any other interruptions you find when performing. There are other systems out there but they are more complex and more demanding, unless you are using them all the time.

But the Si Stebbins and the Eight Kings have one glaring fault (if fault you could call it) and that is the alternating...

51 for Two by David Gemmell

This is David Gemmell's solution to the classic Paul Curry/Stewart James card problem "51 Faces North".

History of the card problem:

  • Paul Curry conceived the idea for this effect sometime in the 1940's. At the time he had no workable method for achieving the effect.
  • Ed Marlo got wind of this sometime in 1949 and published a method in the Cardician 1953.
  • Stewart James and Howard Lyons corresponded on this subject in 1953.
  • Stewart James contributed several methods to Ibidem in the early years of its run. This is where Stewart James first laid down the (almost) impossible conditions for the effect dubbing his idea as "51 Faces North".
  • Jon Racherbaumer launched the Hierophant...

Cameron Francis
Sketchers by Cameron Francis

Cameron Francis strikes again with a workhorse of a packet trick. An astonishing three phase routine that packs a wallop and is incredibly easy to do.

Effect:

The magician removes a small packet of Jokers. "These Jokers may look like normal cards but they are actually incredible magicians!" he claims. The Jokers are placed aside and the spectator selects a card. We'll say it's the Queen of Diamonds. The card is left face down on the table.

The magician shows that there are three Jokers in the packet and one blank card. "This card is a canvas on which the Jokers will write a divination."...

Paul Gertner
Photocopy by Paul Gertner

A demonstration of "Invisible Palming" leads to a selection magically traveling into a wallet the spectator is holding. As a kicker, the selection is actually inside a folded photocopy of a hand with the selection printed on it. Commercial magic at its best.

Despite the strong effect this is relatively easy to intermediate level difficulty.

David Regal
Heading North by David Regal

This is a very effective and very easy card rise developed by David Regal. Any card is selected and shuffled into the deck. The selection now inexplicably rises out of the deck. New method, easy to do.

No threads, rubber bands, magnets or other contraptions. The gimmick is simple and right there invisible in the deck. Spectators can stare right at it and not see it. Very clever and very practical.

Martin Lewis
A Sharper Sharped by Martin Lewis

A wonderful routine only requiring a false count. Martin Lewis uses the Buckle count but several other false counts can be substituted.

The premise is a game of cards with a card sharper. You deal cards and the sharper counts his cards. He has 6 cards. Since you can't play poker with six he removes one card and counts them again still leaving him with six cards. This is repeated two more times always leaving him with six cards. Only the last time he is left with 4 cards. Since you can't play poker with 4 cards he adds a card but still is left with only 4 cards. This continues until in the...

Losing Diamonds by Joshua Jay

A card is chosen, travels to the pocket, but turns out to be the wrong card. Visibly 'flick' the diamonds off of the wrong card. They flutter to the floor, leaving you holding the selection.

This is of intermediate difficulty. You will need to be able to force and control a card to the top. And you will also need to do a top change. No palming required.

Johnny Thompson
Vernon's Variant by Johnny Thompson

This is a wonderfully entertaining routine for two (or more) spectators. Each one of the spectators and the performer receives four cards. All go through the same actions of turning over cards and placing them on the top or bottom of their pack. In the end the performers cards are all face down, whereas the spectators cards have a face up card among them. This basic effect is done again two times in fairer and fairer ways.

Very easy to perform. All you need is any double lift and the Elmsley count. You can read the original description of this routine in Ultimate Secrets of Card Magic.

Carl Cloutier
Cards to Slimfast by Carl Cloutier

Watch and learn the routine that won Carl the F.I.S.M. World Championship. Four signed cards completely vanish. Three of them reappear inside three different pockets. The fourth selection reappears in your sock! All four cards then vanish again, only to make their reappearance inside a sealed can of Slimfast, opened by the spectator.

The methods of how to get cards in your pockets, a card in your sock and how to load cards into a closed can holding some type of powder are easily applicable in many other situations.

The routine uses palming and sleeving, however Cloutier demonstrates how...

Alan Rorrison
Turn Left and Hoff by Alan Rorrison

This is Alan Rorrison's solution to the Hofzinser Ace Problem.

A spectator freely chooses any card and signs it. The card is put face down between the two Jokers and these three cards (Jokers and spectator selection) are tabled. Then the spectator or another spectator selects four random cards from the face down spread. Magically the four chosen cards are the four aces. The ace with the same color as the spectator's card vanishes and reappears between the Jokers. The signed spectator selection is now found among the three remaining aces.

Alan has engineered his method to not require any difficult...
