Unknown Mentalist
Thought Trajectory by Unknown Mentalist
"This is virtual magic, mentalism and theory at its very best. You are a real deep thinker" - Marc Salem
This is a pure propless effect. You can perform this over a voice phone call, video call, face to face, close up, parlor etc. It can be performed anytime, anywhere to anyone. Nothing for you to carry except the almost self working method in your head.

As the name suggests, Thought Trajectory is an effect which is like a chain of thoughts in the mind of the participant. The mind reader is not aware of the starting point, nor the process, nor the end result, apparently. Everything happens...

Arthur Watson
Conjurers by Arthur Watson

A very interesting article about early conjuring, conjurers, books and manuscripts. Includes detailed research on how the term 'hocus pocus' came about.

Up to about the end of the sixteenth century, the wonderful was by preference regarded as magical—as the work of supernatural powers, good or bad, but mostly bad. A puzzling phenomenon, the explanation of which was not obvious, was generally regarded as due to the invocation of powers above the natural. Many of the feats ascribed to demoniacal or divine aid are such as we know to be similar to the tricks included in the conjurer’s repertory....

Magic Gareth
On Stage, Online by Magic Gareth

A handbook on the virtual magic show for family entertainers.

I was working as a successful kids entertainer when Covid-19 hit. Like everyone else I saw all of my live work vanish and my income dwindle. I took my kids show online, and it has been pretty successful. I have now performed over 200 online shows and learned lots along the way. So, I wrote an ebook and now I am talking about it.

Now is the time to get online for the future of family entertainment!

Jack Yates & Ken de Courcy
Foreshadowed by Jack Yates & Ken de Courcy

Foreshadowed is an impromptu triple prediction that would play well for a few people or a full theater. As a bonus Yates describe another incredible prediction that can be done over the phone.

Jack Yates really needs no introduction; his name usually comes up wherever subtle magic is discussed. He tends to produce devious principles, then simplifies them down so anyone can use them. Foreshadowed is an interesting twist (literally!) on the well-known three objects prediction (a la Mental Epic). What makes this version different is that the predictions are written on blank pieces of cardboard...

Otto Maurer
Illustrated Descriptive Price List of Magical Apparatus and Illusions by Otto Maurer

Otto Maurer had his shop in New York. He started as tin smith but soon made and fixed apparatus for magicians. His shop was for many years a gathering place for prominent magicians who came to town including Houdini, Thurston, and Downs. They all visited Maurer, bought from him, and exchanged the latest gossip and news. The most famous story about Otto Maurer is how he became the conduit for communicating the back palm from a Mexican/Cuban/Spanish cardshark to the magic community at large. (The originator of the back palm was Dr. Elliott.)

De Entre Mis Notas ... Reflexiones Sobre La Carta Doble (El Manejo de Ascanio) by Jesús Etcheverry

Cuando escribí mi trilogía sobre La Magia de Ascanio, tras revisar cuidadosamente todo el material disperso que manejé, contrastándolo a menudo, tuve que dejar fuera cosas, no muchas, que aunque estaban en mi plan inicial, o no pude ampliarlas debidamente o ya no teníamos en los libros espacio material para publicarlas. Uno de estos temas fue el Manejo de la carta doble.

Sobre este ascaniano tema tenía dos documentos, las Notas de Conferencia que Arturo editó para el congreso que en el año 1980 se celebró en Santa Cruz de Tenerife, el mítico "MagiCanarias-80", y el guion que usó...

Wilton Moore Tucker
The Change Raisers by Wilton Moore Tucker

Reveals the inside story on how the con artist forces you, or a store, or even a bank teller to hand him too much change.

This bit of larceny gains the criminal five, ten, or more dollars each time -- and that from a $2 purchase. Also shows how to keep from being shortchanged. Almost defies detection, and practically works itself. This is no pie-in-the-sky con. Newspaper and TV stories report that victims of every age and ethnicity are taken in by this technique.

Audiences are hungry for this information, to avoid being "taken." Makes an excellent lecture to provide to banks, stores, senior...

Jack Yates
Miracle Mix-Up by Jack Yates

It's uncanny; you don't touch the pack; you don't see the pack. Yet you are able to reveal in a novel fashion a freely selected card. Write the simple instructions in the form of a letter to the "customer". You can do it over the phone, over the radio, on television, via SMS, Zoom, or any other communication channel. Or, if you prefer, you can do it close-up with a spectator. They do it at their leisure over and over again and still it works. The card is revealed by your own name thus gaining publicity, or you can use your own phrase or a number to reveal the card!

Power of Negotiation by Brian T. Lees

When the potential customer says "no", it might translate as "not yet". There is a strong chance that there is not enough incentive yet. A good negotiating magician will not discount his price. He will discuss value added services and other incentives. Then he will ask the individual for the contact again. This text introduces the power of positive negotiation. Applying these tools will help you get more performance contracts.

Henry Ridgely Evans
History of Conjuring and Magic by Henry Ridgely Evans

Henry Ridgely Evans provides an account of the history of conjuring, from ancient Egypt through the Middle Ages and into the 20th century. He develops biographical portraits of many well-known magicians and includes descriptions of their acts. Perhaps the most unusual feature of the work is that at the very end he includes photos of the hands of many famous magicians.

From the Proem:

With the passing of so-called genuine magic or sorcery we see the rise of natural magic and conjuring. In the Middle Ages conjurers were mere strolling mountebanks who exhibited their feats at fairs, in barns,...
