Bill Madsen & Al Forgione
Hex by Bill Madsen & Al Forgione

This is a great collection of tricks from a list of top-notch contributors.

From the introduction:

For six years, Al and I cooperated in a modest venture titled The New Jinx. It was a monthly magic journal conceived out of certain personal ambitions of mine. The first was to attempt a living memorial to the memory of Ted Annemann, creator of the original Jinx and an individual who has captured my interest more than any other single person I can think of. Next, I wanted to express my own personal viewpoints on the existing state of "professionalism" in stage magic and mentalism. Such a journal would...

Billy McComb
McCombical Millennium Miracles by Billy McComb

From the introduction by Terry Seabrooke:

Billy is my longest standing magical mate - although we have been known to fall over now and again!!! We have shared so much in our lives, but the overall love we all have for Billy, is his help on all things magical, and his readiness to share with all of us his most creative ideas on new tricks and particularly on amazing and entertaining presentation. Give Billy, what to most of us is just an ordinary trick, and after thought and work, he will come up with a real commercial presentation which is above all - ENTERTAINMENT.

Bob Haskell
The Magic of Haskell by Bob Haskell

Bob Haskell's genius for brilliant story plots and well-thought-out mechanics made him a master of cabaret and platform magic.

Here's magic for the performer who's up on basic card sleights and/or who can handle an effect using...

Bob Solari & Tom Ogden
Nailed by Bob Solari & Tom Ogden

The performer displays two straight large nails held at his fingertips. Slowly the two nails visibly bend to a 45-degree angle. The nails continue to visibly bend to almost a 90-degree angle. The nails remain in view throughout this bending process. The nails continue to bend to almost a horseshoe angle. The spectator can actually hear the nails bending, immediately hand the bent nails out for examination. The nails can even be examined before the bending. Nothing concealed in the hand. Resets in seconds. Nails can be used over and over again. No, you do not need super strength to perform this...

Bobby Bernard
Bobby Bernard's Magic Clinic by Bobby Bernard

This is not a lecture - it is a clinic.

This is one of the first magic videos Martin Breese released. It was produced by Duncan Trillo and features Bobby Bernard teaching a number of great close-up moves and effects. Compared to today's slick videos this is a minimalistic low budget production. Occasionally you can even hear cars and traffic noises in the background. But what it lacks in slickness it has in spades in terms of teaching value for the magician. Bobby Bernard was a legendary magician and as this video demonstrates also a great teacher. I could watch him all day.

Disaster to Laughter by Brian T. Lees

As magicians we are hired to entertain. The show must go on is a harsh truth that we all accept responsibility for. The fact is performances do not always take place without problems. If you have ever found yourself standing in the lights, with a failed trick you know what I am talking about. The audience knows the magic was a complete flop. There is no one else on stage with you. When that happens, we all promise we will never put ourselves in that situation again.

Your magic may be "performance ready" but is it also "audience ready"? This text talks about conditioning for the unexpected....
