Bob Farmer
Bammo Ten Card Poker Slam by Bob Farmer

The magician displays a random mix of ten cards, all spot cards and a single Ace of Spades. He explains these cards are used in a game called, "Ten Card Poker Slam" - with just ten cards cheating is impossible. The cards are mixed face down and dealt in a row. The magician and the spectator take turns selecting cards until each has five cards.

The magician reveals his hand: four 2s and an Ace of Spades - Four of a Kind - BUT - - - The spectator's hand is a Straight Flush in diamonds, 6D, 7D, 8D, 9D and 10D - and a Straight Flush beats Four of a Kind, so the magician has the losing hand....

John Scarne
Power of Thought by John Scarne

Over the years, many have (incorrectly) assumed that the "Power of Thought" effect that Scarne enjoyed performing uses the same method as the version described in the Scarne On Card Tricks book. This is not the case, as you'll be pleased to discover if you buy this ebook. This is the version Scarne himself used and (unlike the version in the mass market book), this method doesn't rely on swapping cards in your pocket. Indeed, you need not wear a jacket at all; you can perform this effect in your swim trunks if you're so inclined.

This method was originally offered by Scarne to magicians in a 1950 pre-publication...

Magic Ian
Best Dam Tricks: 25 Rubber Penetration Tricks by Magic Ian

Lubor Fiedler's famous dental dam illusion principle is applied to a variety of tricks and routines, not just the penetration of a coin through a rubber sheet. The only sad part here is that the name Lubor Fiedler cannot be found anywhere in this publication. No credit was given.

Excerpt from the introduction by Walter Gibson:

When the rubber penetration came into popularity several years ago, it represented something really new in magic. Here was a trick that was actually accomplished before it began, leaving onlookers baffled by a visible penetration of a coin through a sheet of solid rubber, with no clue whatever...

Gregg Webb
Triplets 7 by Gregg Webb

Following the mentalism issue of Triplets 6, this one, Triplets 7, will also be mainly mentalism, specifically about Equivoque. I learned a lot about this, with 5 objects, from Max Maven's video, and at the same time, I discussed this with Charles Reynolds who in turn discussed it with Pat Page. Then I put in some work of my own and came up with a very practical way of working this.

I will go into every detail. Every mentalist I have shared this with thought my procedural changes worthwhile.

Next, I will go through every object I can think of with which to do this feat. I once saw Kreskin do it with...

Bammo Cychops by Bob Farmer

When Teller saw this he said: "A work of mad genius."

Here at the Mad Genius Institute (MGI) we spend our days chasing the elusive butterfly of love and when we realize it's just another of the many delusions that sent us here in the first place, we get back to our real work: creating mind-bending magic so far outside the box it's a long-distance call to reality.

What happens when you decide to use not one or two Chop Cups but three? Three Chop Cups and three magnetic balls: you can't get farther from the mundane than that.

Mark Leveridge
Paper Money by Mark Leveridge

You show a piece of white paper on both sides and fold it into a neat package. Instantly and visibly the paper turns into a banknote which can be unfolded, displayed on both sides, and importantly, can be immediately handed out for examination or be spent. Devised in the early 1980s, this version of instant money printing is totally practical and very magical. The fact that the printed note can be examined is a huge plus and helps to increase the effectiveness of the illusion.

Secrets of the Street Conjurer by Wilfred Huggins & Frederic Culpitt

A collection of conjuring secrets for magicians who entertain when surrounded by spectators.

Excerpt from the preface:

The compilation of "A Street Conjurer's Secrets" is the outcome of many years of observation in this country, Australia, America, France and Germany. That the effects are well-known is not to be denied, but it is extremely doubtful if many conjurers are aware of the actual method used by the street entertainer.

Arthur Conan Doyle
The Adventure of the Empty House by Arthur Conan Doyle

Arthur Conan Doyle was the most famous and successful author in the detective story genre. One of the locked-room mysteries he wrote was The Adventure of the Empty House. The story plays in 1894, three years after Holmes's apparent death. Ronald Adair, son of the Earl of Maynooth, a colonial governor in Australia, was killed with a soft-nosed revolver bullet to his head while sitting in his room, working on accounts of some kind. The motive was not robbery since nothing was stolen. Adair's door was locked from the inside and the only window in the room presented a 20-foot drop with no sign...

Israel Zangwill
The Big Bow Mystery by Israel Zangwill

The Big Bow Mystery was one of the first locked-room mystery stories and the first full-length locked-room mystery. It is still one of the best with an ingenious solution. It has been used as the basis for three movies (The Perfect Crime (1928), The Crime Doctor (1934), The Verdict (1946)).

Set in London's East End, in Bow, a murder occurred inside a locked room, with no clear indication as to the weapon used, the perpetrator of the crime, or a possible escape route. Mrs. Drabdump, a widow who rents out rooms, panics when one of her lodgers does not respond to her attempts to wake him....

Edgar Allan Poe
Murders in the Rue Morge by Edgar Allan Poe

With Murders in the Rue Morge, Edgar Allan Poe is the inventor of the model for the modern detective story consisting of a brilliant detective, his personal friend who serves as the narrator, and the revelation of whodunit that is revealed before the explanation of how the crime was committed. More specifically, Poe is also the father of the locked room mystery, detective stories where the impossibility of the crime takes center stage. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle acknowledged that he modeled his most famous Sherlock Holmes stories after Poe's detective story model by having Watson explicitly state in the first Holmes...

Renzo Grosso
Cherokee's Red Moon by Renzo Grosso

This is a close-up effect, with a history that greatly enriches the simplicity of this effect. I have a dear friend, who I knew a long time ago in Tulsa, Oklahoma: he was a park keeper; he told me about an old custom, told to him by his grandparents, to whom their grandparents had told it, and then their grandparents ... Cherokee Indians.

And the story I want to tell and create with you, is an ancient propitiatory ritual, the "Ritual of the Red Moon", in which the tribal chief, the sorcerer, and all the villagers took part. Every year, at the beginning of summer, at the time which, for...

The Astro Card File by Ken de Courcy

Effects with the Zodiac deck. (Deck not included with this PDF.)

Excerpt from the introduction:

Whilst this beautifully produced pack can be used for card games, as suggested in the small folder that comes with the deck, its main strength to a magician lies in the way that ordinary card tricks can be given an astrological slant and thus personalized. To the mentalist, of course, the pack represents one of the finest adjuncts to have come out for many years. Whilst a spectator may not be able to associate herself with the Queen of Hearts, she can certainly relate to her own birth sign....

Slydini Paper Balls in Box by D. Angelo Ferri

Another beautiful classic of Tony Slydini is explained and taught in detail by Dennis Barlotta. Four paper balls vanish and in the end, miraculously appear in a box or hat shown empty. Slydini performed this routine since about 1915. The paper balls he rolled from napkins or tissue paper were the 'sponge' balls at the time sponge balls did not exist.

You will learn the proper way to make a paper ball from a paper napkin such that the ball will not unravel during the performance.

You will learn concepts such as 'the body takes the hand', 'leave and take', 'reach the take', 'coordinated movements',...

Mark Leveridge
Safety Catch by Mark Leveridge

This is ideal for walkabout performance or a set close-up or parlour show. A length of rope is handed out for examination and the ends are then tied to form a rope loop. A spectator's watch is borrowed and the strap done up so that the watch is also in a loop. The watch is then threaded onto the double strands of the rope loop which is held between the two hands. By moving his hands up and down, the performer shows how the watch can slide up and down the rope, but provided he does not let go with either of his hands, the watch is safe on the rope.

Then the magician says he will demonstrate...

From coin tricks to card tricks, black art, mindreading and even ventriloquism, this work is meant as an introduction for the budding magician and showman.

Excerpt from the introduction:

Magic naturally separates into two divisions: One, as performed by pure sleight-of-hand with ordinary objects; and the other, which depends upon apparatus or mechanical appliances; and these are called respectively Drawingroom, and Grand or Stage Magic. The former is made up of feats depending upon manual dexterity, chemical combinations, and arithmetical problems. Grand magic, likewise, consists of...
