Five effects with simple objects.
All of the effects are easy to do . . . are varied in effect. None of them requires elaborate properties.
Effect No. 1. Invisible Dice. A clever novelty. A prediction with a box of matches and invisible dice. No matter what number a spectator "throws," you show your prediction to be correct. A trick that will become one of your favorite pocket tricks.
Effect No. 2. Fire! A gag - but an unusual one you can use in many ways. Any time you need a light, i.e. in the Dove Pan routine, Burnt and Restored note, etc., you say you will show the Magician's way of...

Farewell PerformancePunx & Bill Palmer MIMC
These routines are taken from Punx's full evening show. This material is not only audience-tested, it is the material that one of the greatest magicians of the twentieth century used to earn a living. It is not a book for beginners. Some of the routines have only partial explanations. This is because most of this material consists only of presentations, many of them for...

Fifth-Business Monkey BusinessJon Racherbaumer
Eight select bits of rascality from Harry the Hat.
From the Introduction:
When Harry Anderson lived in New Orleans, we regularly discussed tricks, scams, and what Harry liked to call "throwaways that are keepers." These are tricks that symbolically serve the same purpose as Mardi Gras beads and doubloons tossed from floats during carnival season.
The following 8 things in this booklet are stunts and tricks Harry performed in his inimitable, fast-and-loose way when he held court in barrooms, poolrooms, or at his night club called Oswald's. In the right time and place they are worth knowing...

Final SelectionGlenn G. Gravatt
Excerpt from the Preface:
No skill, no sleights, no manipulation is required to perform the following effects. Many are impromptu, making use of anyone's cards, and needing no preparation or make-ready. Others admittedly depend upon such chicanery as cards with double faces and blank faces, double backs and blank backs, roughing fluid and other aides, all available from magic shops. Many skilled manipulators have not hesitated to use such artifices, so the reader should not scorn them.
Aside from whatever merit these tricks may possess, it is believed their greatest value lies in the...

Flash MagicUlysses Frederick Grant & B. W. McCarron
There are eight excellent effects in this updated ebook - plus a few variations - that you and your audiences will enjoy. Best of all, most can be made from materials found at discount and dollar stores. For example, Visible Silk Flight is a brilliant routine with a toy pop gun rifle and a colorful silk handkerchief that you can make up yourself. Just as good as a $150 dealer item. Or how about Lantern of the Air, a beautiful floating effect with a candle-lit Chinese paper lantern? You get two methods explained: one using an assistant and a second one for the one-person show. Or if it's comedy...

Further Expert Magic: Collected Magic Series Volume 4Percy Naldrett
Excerpt from the preface:
It is to be supposed (and profoundly hoped) that something good may be found herein: a quantity of sketches of more or less merit; certain idioms straight from the American; strange words in italic with wriggly accents; and, possibly, one or two typographical errors (the light is so bad in my attic and the gas has been cut off for many months past).
