Great Million Dollar Bridge and Poker Demonstration by George Thompson

Thompson's Bridge and Poker Demonstration is probably one of the most convincing that has ever appeared. The interesting part, the discarding and drawing of cards to improve the Poker hands, is entirely believable and leads to a strong climax.

Joseph B.
Fate by Joseph B.

Do as I Do under impossible conditions.

An impossible coincidence, a powerful mental effect. Two regular and shuffled decks. Really simple and fun to do. The spectator takes any card from one deck and the magician does the same from the other deck. The amazing thing is that the magician and the spectator surprisingly took the same card. A variation "Do as I do" with an interesting and fascinating technique.

  • Two normal decks
  • No gimmick; no double-sided card
  • No sticky stuff; no wax; no rough and smooth; no tape or double-sided tape

S. S. Baldwin & F. C. Florence
Spirit Mediums Exposed by S. S. Baldwin & F. C. Florence

A revealing look into the psychic manifestations of bogus spirit mediums, as revealed by a noted stage entertainer.

Bold? Yes. Daring? Sure. So much so that one can't help but be impressed by the audacity and methods that psychic charlatans employed to fleece their victims. Like Houdini, Prof. Samri Baldwin was not only a gifted showman in his own right, he also led crusades in the USA and Australia to expose the methods of fraudulent clairvoyants and spirit mediums, several of which are revealed in this ebook.

If you're into real-life ghostbusting, or you're a magician or psychic entertainer...

Aether 11: Creativity and Originality by Gregg Webb

If you think you have no creativity in you, you should read this article. Gregg describes concrete examples of his own creative process and development and how you can start with baby steps to ease yourself into becoming more creative. Progressively you take bigger and bigger challenges to ultimately create your own tricks.

Gregg Webb encourages magicians to create some original magic tricks, even though there is plenty of good material out there, for several reasons. It is a good exercise for the part of the brain that thinks creatively, and that part gets stronger by use. Also, even though...

Biagio Fasano
Red Code by Biagio Fasano

Imagine that a spectator freely shuffles a deck of cards, then randomly picks any 4 cards and from them freely decides which one to choose. The assistant delivers into the right hand of the medium, whose back was turned the whole time, the three remaining cards, and she, studying them for a few moments, will be able to guess the chosen card. Not only that but, repeating the experiment with a second spectator, she will guess the chosen card after simply having the three discarded cards announced by her assistant.

This is an original idea, developed by me, to enable the magician's assistant...

Red Code (Italian) by Biagio Fasano

Immaginate che uno spettatore mescoli liberamente un mazzo di carte, poi prenda a caso 4 carte e tra queste decida liberamente quale scegliere. L’assistente consegna nella mano destra della medium, rimasta per tutto il tempo voltata di spalle, le tre carte rimaste ed ella, studiandole per pochi istanti, saprà indovinare la carta scelta. Non solo ma, ripetendo l’esperimento con un secondo spettatore, indovinerà la carta dopo la semplice lettura delle tre carte scartate da parte del suo assistente!

Si tratta di un’idea originale, da me sviluppata, per permettere all’assistente del...

Mit der Veröffentlichung dieses Buches, das klar und kurz die verschiedenen Tricks und Kunstgriffe enthüllt, die von den vielen sogenannten Handfesselkönigen und Entfesselungskünstlern vorgeführt und angewendet werden, beabsichtige ich durchaus nicht, diejenigen Artisten zu schädigen, die auf vollkommen rechtmäßige Weise arbeiten. Diejenigen jedoch, die als Entfesselungskünstler lügnerische Herausforderungen erlassen, die nur schwache Nachahmer sind, erdichtete Behauptungen vorbringen und denen große Summen Geldes versprechen, die aus irgendeinem Lande der Welt...

Edward Marlo & Wesley James
MINT IV Unauthorized by Edward Marlo & Wesley James

More than the thirteen major Marlo items Ed contributed to New Tops Magazine in 1981 - not to mention new sleights, finesses, and subtleties - all these items have been largely unavailable since their publication. Wesley James has added another year of material toward fulfilling Ed Marlo's expressed wishes, keeping his material available "for the guys."

As with Wesley's previous release of M.I.N.T. III, these long-unavailable Marlo items could have been all Wesley compiled. Still, this volume would have been an important contribution to the literature of card magic. As tribute to Ed, Wesley wanted this volume to offer more....

Neville Wiltshire
A Helping of Punch by Neville Wiltshire

From the foreword:

What I am writing is not for the beginner but for the man with a Punch show already, Many of these will, like myself, be semi-pros who do Magic as well. With Magic one can change ones show fairly easily and indeed this is necessary working in a small area with the same bookings coming in year after year.

It is not so easy to change a Punch show. Not a great deal has been written in the way of Novelty items. There are puppet plays which could be adapted especially those written in German for the puppet Kasper. The snag is that most of these are written for more than one...

Ian Baxter
Nicely Stabbed! by Ian Baxter

Ian Baxter here, introducing something new from me in the 'Card Stabbing' arena. Nicely Stabbed! offers not one but two approaches to this evergreen card mystery. But rather than have me rattle on about this, I'll ask reviewer and fellow Australian David Jones to offer his opinion.

When Ian Baxter told me that his next manuscript involved the concept of forcing an unknown card, I was intrigued, to say the least. What resulted from this offbeat thought was a very clever, streamlined and almost sleight-free method for a known classic. A spectator stabs a card anywhere into the deck and ends...

Regardt Laubscher
Punchlines for Kids Parties by Regardt Laubscher

Over the years I have learned that even a very experienced performer can find himself/herself in situations during a show where you need to stay calm and ignore random things that happen during your show. For the rest of it, speak your mind, but always be respectful. These lines will help you have control over your show and also enhance your professional image.

"I just read the book and there are plenty of good lines/ideas. My favorite are "Balloons Animales" and "Marketing Lines. Thanks Regardt for your sharing!!" - Guillaume Cerati

One Dead Celeb! by Graham Hey

A mentalism effect with drama, humor ... and death! What's not to like?

Four people are asked to write the name of a living celebrity on a piece of paper, while another person writes the name of a dead celebrity on theirs. The papers are folded and put inside five unmarked tablet bottles which are then placed into a bag and mixed up. The performer brings out the bottles one by one, holding each against his forehead dramatically. He can instantly locate the dead celeb.

This is a simple but hugely effective mentalism routine with lots of laughs. You get the full routine with original one-liners,...

New Card Tricks with the Mark Twain Stack by Dick Cole

The Mark Twain stack is a Si Stebbins stack with a four-apart sequence in SHoCkeD order. It was first published in the February 1935 issue of Modern Mechanix and Inventions magazine. This is a reproduction of this article.

The Mark Twain stack, also called the Riverboat stack (see for example Magic Card System), due to the abundant gambling on Mississippi riverboats, gets its name from the practice on these riverboats to frequently having to measure the water depth. If it was two marks, pronounced 'mark twain', it was ok.
