Watch This CloselySomeeran
Excerpt from the preface:
This is a book on close-up magic. The effects described in this book are not only mystifying but vastly entertaining. I know they are practical and popular, because I do them all the time, and I love them. Some of the effects in this book were originally published in different magic magazines like Magigram, Mantra etc. While re-writing them for this book, I have updated the effect, handling and presentation, based on my experience of performing them several times, to make them more interesting and entertaining. Even readers who may have read the original versions will find something...

Water WizardryDave Arch
This offering represents a small part of my passionate journey to document just how much entertaining magic can be created with two paper sacks, a bottle of water, and a paper cup. I would feel badly having simple ideas like this one get lost over time under a growing pile of more expensive gimmicks, books, and DVD's. In furtherance of this quest of mine, please also visit my new monthly column Craft Store Magic in The Linking Ring magazine where I document ideas for turning your local craft store into your very own local brick and mortar magic store.

Wayne Dobson and FriendsWayne Dobson
Excerpt from the Introduction:
Some people perform magic and some people are magic, but very few possess both of these qualities. I believe that the contributors to this book are genuine exceptions. It was Derek Lever who suggested to me that I should write this book. At first I was a little apprehensive about approaching my friends as I didn't want to feel that I was exploiting their status. I really shouldn't have worried as all the people featured in this book were more than happy to oblige - they have all been very generous in contributing some of their best material.

Wayne Dobson has had a life full of incredible highs and hard-to-bear lows, and in this candidly written ebook, he lays it all before you. The full story is here charting his meteoric rise to international fame and TV stardom in which, when he was at the height of his powers, he became a household name in the UK and was seen as a genuine alternative to Paul Daniels as a mainstream TV magician, right through to his valiant and uncomplaining struggle with MS. It's a tale of courage, is often very funny, and it is always fascinating.
As well as Wayne's life story this excellent ebook provides...

Webb ManiaGregg Webb
From the Foreword:
Magic is changing and a lot of the reason for this is that people's attention spans are shorter because of the pace of life today and more distractions.
We don't have the luxury of people dying for entertainment. There is too much entertainment and to compete, we have to get to the point quicker.
If you look at my magic a certain way, it is a direct result of chipping away at long tricks trying to distill them down.
The format follows Gregg's established style of illustrations and hand-lettered text.

Westminster WizardryFrederick Montague
Montague was a member of the Hous of Commons and a hobby magician, which lead to his nickname "Conjurer of the House of Commons." Most of the tricks described here are of his invention.
From the introduction by Will Goldston:
All the tricks explained in the book are thoroughly practical; that I should know if I had not seen the written explanations of the secrets, because all the tricks described in this book have been performed by the author at the Magicians’ Club. That being the case, I strongly recommend the reader to study the book thoroughly and thus add some of the tricks to his repertoire;...

Will Goldston's Easy Road to Magic: in seven lessonsWill Goldston
From the introduction:
The ideal way of learning magic is, it almost goes without saying, to obtain lessons from a magician who is not only a skilful performer but who has also the gift of teaching. The number of such magicians is small. Skilful performers there are in plenty; but the gift of teaching is a rare one. Many a man knows his subject thoroughly, yet cannot impart his knowledge to others.
This ideal way is therefore a difficult one. The learner has first to find an efficient instructor. He may be able to do so if he lives in or near one of the great cities. But if not he will...

Wizardry with WatchesOswald Rae
From the foreword:
Watches have always played a certain part in Magic, but the watch was usually a borrowed one. The excellent "prop" watches now on the market, manufactured of course exclusively for conjuring purposes, open up almost a new era in watch magic.
Having acquired some of these, I endeavoured to work out some effects therewith, and thinking that some of my ideas may be of service to my fellow magicians, I have put them into print. With the exception of those described under "Some Suggestions" all the effects have been actually worked, and the various stands described are easily...

Easy to build. Not for live performances! Use the gimmick for Zoom, Instagram, or similar. Also very suitable for demo videos to let business cards gently lift off the table. Don't use it as a magic trick. Rather as a science experiment.
