A brand new totally impromptu newspaper test from the twisted mind that is Nefesch. No gaffs, no gimmicks, no preparation - everything is borrowed. Any paper or magazine, any page.
This is really strong and the construction is very clever. Imagine you borrow a newspaper or magazine and a pen. Both are totally and utterly ungimmicked. The spectator has a completely free choice of the page and circles a word on the page. You are able to predict the word he or she circles. Let me repeat that the pen is not gimmicked in any way and can be borrowed. The spectator really draws a circle. The best...

Nu Way Out Of This WorldUlysses Frederick Grant
A wonderful self-working rendition of the classic "Out Of This World" effect. This was the first real card trick I saw - and I was baffled.
A borrowed deck is shuffled. A red and a black card are placed face up on the table. The performer then removes cards, one at a time from the deck. Without the spectator seeing the faces of these cards, he indicates whether he thinks a card is a red or a black. If he thinks it is a red card, the performer places it, face down, on the face up red card. If the spectator thinks it is a black card, the performer places it face down on the face up black card....

MUK JournalRobert Kaldy-Karo & Andreas Swatosch
The MUK or Museum für Unterhaltungskunst (Museum of Entertainment Arts) in Vienna, Austria, issues an interesting magazine every 6 months. This museum covers mostly magic, circus, and variety, and its publication draws from the holdings of the museum.
Even for people who do not read German this might be interesting, because many historical photos and artifacts are reproduced. For example, issue 2 features an article on Houdini with many fascinating photos, several of which I have never seen before.
You will receive the first three issues: 2007 No. 1, 2007 No. 2, and 2008 No. 3.

Bar MagicD. Angelo Ferri
I worked as a "Magic Bartender" for several years, tricks have to be simple, entertaining, and ideally employ common objects. Occasionally I'd sit at a customers table which gave me the opportunity to perform 'The Glass Through the Table' and my 'Hat Load'. Slydini taught me the 'Glass Trick'. He uses sound to control the perception of the spectator, The Hat Load begins with a coin trick based upon Don Alan's Hat Load but my mechanics for loading the hat are based upon Slydini's System of movement. My Copper and Silver Transposition employs a slightly modified version of John...

You show four face up cards, explaining that two are identical, and ask someone to call out the name of the card they see twice. They do this three times, but are only correct on their third attempt! You repeat the entire procedure with the backs of the cards (only two are the same colour) ... with the same result!

Silver Where?Stephen Tucker
An incredible transposition of a fork and a spoon.
Showing a fork and a spoon you mix them, undercover of your hands, then ask someone to guess which is the fork. They guess and are either correct or wrong. You clearly place the spoon in your breast pocket, with the handle protruding. Suddenly, the fork in your hand becomes the spoon! The spoon in your breast pocket turns out to be... the fork!
No magnets or sleights! Can be performed without a table (ideal for strolling or at cluttered tables) and everything can be examined at the end. This was developed to link with Stephen's Mind-Power routine. ...

MonuMental is a new multiple prediction effect that packs a punch. The routine is fully explained in a 40 minute video presentation that you can download to your computer. Includes two versions.
Also included on this video is Beyond. A spirit writing effect where a spectator initials all six sides of three blank business cards. Despite this, a message or prediction magically appears on one of the sides while he is holding the cards. And he can keep this as a memento. See demo on your left.

Window StoppersUlysses Frederick Grant
This ebook describes store window displays which are magical in one way or another causing pedestrians to stop and look into the window. Once a person stops and looks at the display the chances for them to actually enter the store have dramatically increased.
Several of these contraptions use magic principles. One can think of them as magic apparatus displayed in action. Although these displays could be employed by pretty much any store, I would think that they would be most appropriate in the window of a real magic store. I have never seen any magic store use anything like this. An innovative...

Don Alan TributeD. Angelo Ferri
Dennis Barlotta's Tribute to Don Alan includes a re-working of three routines; The Chop Cup, The Benson Bowl, and 'Bag Stabbed' a card stab.
I am a very big Don Alan fan. This manuscript represents my investigation into applying Slydini's principles to these great Don Alan presentations. My Chop Cup routine follows the Don Alan Routine in terms of sequence of events but I accomplish those events using Slydini's system of movement, his Revolve Vanish, and his Timing Patterns. The timing patterns are what accomplish the two final loads of the Chop Cup.
In the Benson Bowl,...

Slydini's Production SilksD. Angelo Ferri
Slydini used to open his stage act with this routine.
Slydini's Production Silks is a routine he cared deeply about. This is an opening stage effect. (He used to say: "If you wait too long the silks will get stale".) The magician shows his hands empty then picks up a silk from the seat of a chair. The silk is displayed and placed on the back of the chair. The magician reaches into the air and produces a second silk, which is also placed on the back of the chair. Two more silks are produced from the air and then all four silks are picked up. These silks multiply into a beautiful 'fountain...

3 Card TrickStephen Tucker
INSTANT RE-SET! VERY EASY TO PERFORM!
Someone tries to find the queen amongst two jokers, but fails every time. You pocket the queen, and ask them to find the black and white joker... they fail again as... all three cards are queens!
Holding three face down jumbo(ish) sized playing cards you say, "These cards may look very large, but they aren't... it's just that I have very small hands." As you patter, you show the cards to be two jokers and... a queen.
You explain that they are to ignore the jokers and... try to follow the queen.
You now mix the three cards very quickly as you...

You borrow a normal egg from a spectator, who signs it with a permanent pen. Then you borrow a coin and also have it signed by the spectator. Now you proceed to put the signed egg and signed coin together and without making any funny or weird movements. The coin visually penetrates the egg and goes through its shell!. It all happens right before the eyes of the spectator. The egg is now shown all around completely intact, with no scratches or holes. Your hands are shown both sides, all angles are totally clean, you are not hiding or palming the coin, it really has 'melted' into the egg! You...

This is a completely new principle. One rarely stumbles upon something like this. Often we find variations on old themes, slight alterations or modifications. However, this is a completely new principle. It is actually the combination of two known methods but in a completely new and unique way enabling completely different and much stronger effects.
Imagine a deck being fairly and thoroughly shuffled by yourself and the spectator. Under total test conditions, the spectator selects any card. You will immediately know the identity of the selected card. At any time, the deck can be passed out...

BOB - A confabulation routineLuke Jermay
This is Luke's excellently engineered confabulation routine. This routine combines several different methods to create a rather detailed prediction effect. The routine showcases the possibility of mixing such methods as mechanical forces, psychological forces, double writing, reverse engineered predictions, planted predictions and extending predictions using 'bolstering' techniques. Within the whole routine, the performer will only need to 'double write' three times. Each of these happen under the logical 'covers' of writing another piece of information. This is also a solution to the time delay...

The Master of MisdirectionD. Angelo Ferri
I believe that Dennis Barlotta will soon be known as the foremost teacher of Slydini's system of misdirection. There have been others before that have tried to explain and teach Slydini routines, but nobody could capture the essence of what made Slydini the master of misdirection the way Barlotta has been able to.
Dennis has studied eight years under Slydini and has spent a lifetime mastering the Slydini method. Dennis told me: "While many magicians admire Slydini, they don't understand what made him unique or how his approach can be employed by them." This is the ebook that will help you...

Slydini's Linking PinsD. Angelo Ferri
I have studied a linking pin routine myself many years ago. It wasn't this Slydini routine, but the effect is very strong because safety-pins are familiar to everyone. And if you can do something magical with a common object then you have a miracle at your hands. Now you can learn a routine which the master of misdirection devised himself.
Slydini taught me his Linking Pins Routine sometime in the late 1970's. For several Thanksgiving's, during that period of time, Slydini arranged for several of his students, including myself, to perform at the Windows on the World Restaurant,...

The spectator is offered the opportunity to create life. It's one thing for a mentalist to read a spectator, there are techniques for age estimation and cold reading is often used to explain traits of their personalities. This is not a demonstration of cold reading.
This is a demonstration of sheer thought reading. I would like you to create a character in your mind, somebody completely different from yourself - make this hard for me! I want you to decide upon, in your mind, several details of this fictitious person.

The beautiful thing about the effects presented within this ebook is that they are very low-tech. While the current trend in magic with ice may be to use some sort of gelling agent to give the illusion of ice, all of the effects in this ebook end with the production of real ice which can be examined.

Although an Okito Box is used, none of the regular Okito Box moves are employed .... there are virtually NO SLEIGHTS involved in this effect! Lewis also gives credit to BOB SWADLING for his subtle idea which is incorporated and which makes the effect possible .... and what an effect! A close-up masterpiece!
