Ian Baxter
Three Rapid Spellers by Ian Baxter

To all magicians, amateur and professional - here is a loaded question:

Have you ever been bored silly watching a magician perform a spelling trick?

This is contentious and very obviously axiomatic. Quoting from the Preface of his new manuscript, Australian card man Ian Baxter comments: "Unfortunately, spelling effects in card magic hold the onerous title of being the most laborious, boring presentations imaginable."

This is the point at issue - boredom setting in, thanks to the tedium of endless counting and spelling, usually propped up with trivial patter. Such effects are simply...

Ali
Gagsterisms by Ali

An ebook of visual gags and other fun bits.

There are many types of comedy. Visual, verbal, straight, burlesque and pantomimic are but a few, and numerous off-shoots spring from them. Best of all, by far, is the visual gag. This has no language barriers and can be understood by young and old alike.

There was the classic visual gag of the famous musical clown, Grock. He would sit down at a grand piano, only to find the stool was too far away for him to reach the keys. To remedy this, he would rise from the stool, go to the other end of the piano, and laboriously start to push the heavy...

Ray Grismer
Foxiest by Ray Grismer

For many years, Ray has worked on the problem of developing an impromptu version of the Paul Fox Miracle Gimmick. After testing and discarding several earlier handlings, he has come up with a stunning version that is a reputation-building demonstration of mass mentalism.

It can be done anytime, anywhere, totally impromptu, with a borrowed deck of cards which is first thoroughly shuffled by a spectator. The cards are handed out to several spectators - between five and twenty if you wish - and they are each asked to just think of a card. The cards are gathered and once again shuffled. You...

BIRT: Baxter's Indian Rope Trick by Ian Baxter

A lovely print-and-perform trick.

Who in magic, beginner or expert, has not purchased, watched, or performed that perennial "Gone To Lunch" or as it is sometimes called, "The Indian Rope Trick"? This magic shop favourite has been making the rounds for decades and is still a consistent best-seller for dealers all over the world.

Would you believe, Australian card man Ian Baxter has for years been performing his own version that tops the original? Baxter put this together back in the 1990's and sold it through limited dealerships. Yes, the 'Gone To Lunch' theme is fully intact, but there...

Michael Jorden
The Assistant's Revenge by Michael Jorden

A new take on Harbin's "Aztec Lady" and "Assistant's Revenge".

Excerpt from the introduction:

For some time now I have been wanting to build an illusion act and, for me, Harbin seemed to be the place to start. Unfortunately Zig-Zag had been performed so many times on television that I felt it would serve no useful place in my act. However, I did want a "torture" illusion and after reading "Harbincadabra" decided to attempt to make "Aztec Lady" based on the photographs in the book, as well as the brief information given in the Appendix "Letter to New Zealand".

I had seen Harbin perform this illusion...

B4 Haunted by Koo Hu

Give logic and reason to your haunted deck to make it reach deeper levels of the subconscious.

I have always disliked how most magicians perform the haunted deck as an added phase to an Ambitious Card routine or worse just a single-phased find a card trick. Some use the presentation of ghosts, but I also don't like it as well. It is too dark for some of the audiences around the world and also doesn't suit every occasion/event.

Here are the 2 phases that I use to lead into the Haunted Deck.

Many years ago by a stroke of good luck, a fortunate combination of circumstances, I acquired a complete file of Thayer instruction sheets designed to accompany the apparatus. This just may be the only complete collection of Thayer secrets in existence. Recently I happened to mention this to Lloyd Jones who urged me to compile these instructions in book form, stressing the tremendous value of such a collection to magicians. This I consented to do but found there was too much material for one book. It was therefore decided to issue these secrets in several volumes, of which this is the first.

Michael Elliott
Children's Showtime by Michael Elliott

Excerpt from the introduction by David Hemingway:

The plum of the book is undoubtedly the 'Parade of the Firemen.' This will surely be seen in the acts of many leading children's entertainers.

Michael Elliott has at last been persuaded to go into print with his wealth of experience in entertaining children. His approach is, in my opinion, completely new and his knowledge of commercial script writing shows through in many ways.

Many of his basic ideas may seem old, but are presented in a new and telling way. Atrocious puns may seem corny to you and me, but they are the very essence...
