Hunter Knot RevisitedTimothy Hyde
The Hunter Puzzle Knot is a deceptive effect that a lot of magicians know, but is sometimes overlooked as a strong performance piece. Timothy built a routine around this simple but effective idea, that has proven to be a very commercial routine. For many years Timothy featured this very routine as his opening effect for Trade Show performances. It quickly stops one person and then another, the crowd then snowballing into a laughing involved crowd of 30-40 or more! Your clients will love the way this works as a traffic generator.
It’s also just as effective for large walk around or roving...

Bill Burner ClearRon Jaxon
A borrowed and signed bill is wrapped around a clear cigarette lighter and held in place with a rubber band. The magician is able to cause the bill to vanish from or appear back on the lighter at will. The vanished bill can appear anywhere the magician chooses.
What makes this effect so stunning is the fact that it's done with a clear lighter. When the bill vanishes they can see right through it so there's no way the bill can be somehow hidden under or in the lighter. The magicians hands are also completely empty.

Two cards are selected and lost in the deck. The first card magically travels under a napkin that's been on the table the entire time. This card is wrapped in the napkin and handed to a spectator for safe keeping. They can actually see the face of the card through the napkin so they know what card is in there and that the magician can't touch it. The magician then causes the card in the napkin to turn into the second selection.
Above is just one possible routine that can be done with this gimmick. It can really be used any time you wan to turn one card, or any number of cards, into...

Perpetuity TubeRon Jaxon
The Perpetuity Tube is a perfect follow up for one of Ron's other ebooks called Bill Burner because it uses an objects that's logical to have with a lighter (a small cigar tube). In other words it's a perfect place for the vanished bill to magically (and visually) travel into.
But that's not all you can do with these little tubes. Just about anything that can fit in them can be made to magically and visually appear, vanish or turn into other objects in a very visual manner. Just to give you an idea of the kinds of things you can accomplish with the Perpetuity tubes:

Bottle in BottleRon Jaxon
Two different sized bottles are displayed. If you wish you can pour a drink into a glass from each bottle to prove they are both real. Each empty bottle is placed in a separate paper bag. The magician explains that he or she is going to cause one of the bottles to magically travel from one bag to the other.
The magician picks up one of the bags and shows that it still contains a bottle. After some comedy by play the bottle vanishes. The other bag is emptied to find only one bottle inside. The magician seems to have succeeded in vanishing one of the bottles but failed to make it...

Double JeopardyPeter Duffie
A card at any number! But the number is predicted in advance! Watch the demo video below.
The performer removes a card that has plenty of white space on its face from the deck – say, the Two of Hearts - and writes a prediction on the face of this card with a marker pen. The prediction is left face down on the table. A spectator now selects a card from the deck (say the JS), after which the card is lost back into the deck. The deck is now given to a second spectator who - only now - names ANY number. To keep the routine moving along you suggest he thinks of any number between 1 and 30. He...

Change for a DollarRon Jaxon
This effect is hard to describe. It's a very unusual version of the classic mismade bill in which the bill is folded in half then you cause the crease in the bill to move to a different edge. When the bill is unfolded you have a very unusual looking bill. Fold it in quarters and move the new crease to another edge and the bill looks even more unusual. Then you return everything back to normal and return the bill to it's owner.
You really should watch the demo video below to get the full effect. The demo video runs through the entire routine very quickly to keep the video short but you can...

The Trick BrainDariel Fitzkee
This is book two from Fitzkee's trilogy and is unlike any other book ever written on magic. It was the first book (and to my knowledge the only book) to attack magic methods from a scientific standpoint. Fitzkee develops here a classification of effects, from appearances to vanishes, and then describes a system to invent or develop new trick plots. This is an invention system. I would say it is one way to invent new trick plots. But even if you are not of the scientific sort, the classification and discussion of magic effects and methods is a tremendous resource to expand your horizon and think...

Magic by MisdirectionDariel Fitzkee
This volume, book three in the trilogy, is all about the psychology in magic. Mechanics alone, a sleight or move, are not sufficient to produce a strong magic effect. Dexterity by itself is more like juggling. Only if misdirection, the psychological aspect of deception, is added into the mix, will one be able to create a truly magic experience.
There aren't many good works on misdirection. This is one of the must read ebooks, a classic in the theory of magic. A shorter but modern discussion of misdirection can be read in Pocket Power by Jarle Leirpoll.
