Unknown Mentalist
Pskycards by Unknown Mentalist

This is a quick playing card divination effect. The performer divines the card merely thought of by the participant and the best part is that there is no need of any physical deck of cards. Just one single business card is used.

There are no sleights, no stooges, no preshow, no peeks, no impressions, no outs, no tears. Nothing to reset and instantly repeatable for other participants.

The method is an old classic reworked for this effect. The underlying principle is very flexible and can be put to multiple uses with a little creativity.

A new design shared by Michael Lyth is included. Another cool...

Unknown Mentalist
Instant Infinity by Unknown Mentalist

Based on a classic principle, the 4 routines explained in this ebook can become reputation makers for you. Right from a rank beginner to an experienced professional, any performer can adapt these routines to his/her stature and pull off these seemingly impossible card mentalism miracles.

There is no sleight of hand and all the routines are totally hands off. The principle is completely self-working and almost impromptu. Only ordinary decks of playing cards are used - no gaffs or gimmicks are needed. The bonus is an esp routine performed with an ordinary esp deck.

No preshow. No stooges....

Gerard Zitta
Err by Gerard Zitta
"I think your routine is very good. I may use it a couple times myself." - Brian T. Lees (a.k.a. Topper)
[Although different, the plot can be seen as a variation of an article in Abraca-Poof! - December 2016 that can also be found on lybrary.com. Brian T. Lees digged up an unreferenced gem buried somewhere in one of Aldo Colombini's DVDs.

Effect:

You produce a deck of cards and hand it to a spectator. (You will not touch it or see it any more). The spectator shuffles the deck, selects a card, folds it and puts a rubber band or a paper clip tight around it. Despite these lab conditions, you try to guess their card! And believe it or not, you will always succeed. Their card can be given back as a souvenir. It does...

Cut The Cards by Martin Gardner

The 17 effects contained in this collection can be performed with an unprepared deck. Never again be caught without a trick. The audience-tested effects range from no-skill puzzlers to outstanding mysteries that require rudimentary sleights. Nelson Hahne's clear illustrations help make everything clear.

Here's what's included:

A Close Fit - Some of you will win bar bets with this impossible-appearing optical illusion.

The Unconfused Joker - The Joker helps locate the spectator's card, though the audience thinks its impossible.

Double Vanish and Recovery - A beautiful effect by Ed Marlo where...

Moment's Notice 9 by Cameron Francis

Feast your eyes on and fry your spectators' brains with six more insanely impossible impromptu card miracles.

TRIP EL REMIX - An amped-up version of a classic triple prediction trick with a major kicker ending. A serious fooler - and best of all, it's entirely self-working.

BIDDLE-ISH - A lean, mean, super-clean "Card Across" effect. You've never seen this spin on a time-tested classic of card magic.

BUT NOT LEAST - A wildly deceptive triple sandwich effect with an eye-popping, in-the-spectators-hands ending.

EAT FRESH - Inspired by the Buck Twins' legendary "Subway" - but you don't...

Jon Racherbaumer
Marlo Without Tears by Jon Racherbaumer

From the Foreword:

MARLO WITHOUT TEARS began as a flip notion five years ago. My original plan was to prepare a salmagundi of previously published material by Marlo that was easy to do; to select methods which stressed subtlety and psychological cunning and required no difficult sleights. There is a neat irony here because such material is not associated with Marlo. The prevailing assumption about Marlovian magic focusses on its difficulties, complexities, and textual protraction. The look of his books are intimidating: pages of explanation, dense detail, allusions to other notes (published...

Nick Conticello is proud to present the third and final installment of the Potpourri series. Herewith is another collection of impromptu, sleightless, mathematical effects with cards. Each book has a theme, and this one is no exception. The entire ebook is devoted to what Nick calls the Australian Shuffle. (You may refer to it as the Down/Under Deal.)

The Moment's Notice series continues with six more stunning, spectacular, sensational effects. Hard-hitting and easy to do, this might be the best of the series yet.

Divided - An incredible two phase effect that ends in a full deck color separation (You are going to love the concept that makes this possible).

Streamlined Sandwich - Two face up Jacks are cut into the deck. A card is freely selected (for real). It then appears...

Ferry Gerats
The Gerats Principle by Ferry Gerats

The principle facilitates in determining the position and identity of the matching of cards in two decks, which have been randomized by the cutting of each deck. The principle works in conjunction with a memorized stack. A presentation is given where you don't have to commit a stack to memory.

The Gerats Principle enables you to perform the following effect:

Two decks are on the table. After two spectators have each cut one of the decks to their heart's content, the magician is able, without handling the cards, to tell whether there will be a matching of cards (ie: 2♥/2♥)) at a certain...

Imagine being able to control coincidence. Where the time and location of two events determines the outcome of the events. This script and full instructions explains how.

Imagine being able to control coincidence. Where the time and location of two events determines the outcome of the events. Now you can!

The magician removes a BLUE backed card from his pocket as he talks about coincidence, and how coincidence is decided by two factors: physical proximity and time. He has someone sit on the card. He then removes a RED backed deck from his pocket, and spreads the cards out front and back...

A Bumblebee's Flight by Michel Cayrol & Jean-Marie Beckers

This is an important improvement of the classic Kruskal principle. Think about this: The spectator can shuffle the deck and you still know exactly where the count will end!

This ebook contains a new principle on Kruskal-counting and illustrates the principle with two effects. The first effect A Bumblebee’s Flight will lead the spectator’s dealing sequence invariably to a known/predicted card, even after a shuffle by the spectator. A version for cards taken out of a sealed box and shuffled twice by spectators is also provided. Performance and explanation videos by Tomas Blomberg are linked...

Alton C. Sharpe
Expert Card Chicanery by Alton C. Sharpe

From the Preface:

This booklet, like our other Expert Series, is not designed to be either a reference or an authority in the ordinary sense. Perhaps, at best, it might be called a tickler, a reminder, or a check list, although none of these terms would be exact. It was written and compiled to stimulate one's "thought processes" and to instill creative activity within those who have a fondness for the pasteboards.

These contributions range from presentation ideas such as Fred Lowe's "Second Deal Sam" to the technical refinement of standard effects, as, for example, in Ed Marlo’s "Approach to the ‘Stop’ Trick."

Expert Card Mysteries by Alton C. Sharpe

From the introduction by Robert Parrish:

Although much of the material in this book comes from advanced current contributors to card magic, Al has included some fascinating lore from the past. There is, for example, the first printed information on Eddie Fay's glimmer technique. I recall that the late Rufus Steele, an informed man of gamblers' dodges, simply refused to believe that Fay was using a reflector. He thought it was a put-on and that Fay was probably using a stack or a pack of marked cards. Then there is Paul LePaul's wonderful transportation of cards into a sealed envelope. Although he explained the trick...

Understanding and Using Gilbreath Principle by Michael Daniels

This ebook is a beginner's guide to the famous Gilbreath Principle and its applications in card magic and mentalism. It includes two ESP-type routines:

Fingertip Sensation

The spectator shuffles the deck. The mentalist (who can be blindfold) then uses his fingertips to correctly identify the colour of cards.

Trinities Card Divination

The mentalist correctly divines attributes (colour, suit, value) of playing cards which the spectator has shuffled, dealt, and covered with his hands while the mentalist has turned away.

[Note: This ebook is a revised extract from Michael Daniels' ebook Trinities, plus an additional routine (Fingertip Sensation).
