Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph
Stay! by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

Borrow a pen, write with it, and then casually remove your hand, while the pen remains standing unsupported.

This is best performed as an off-beat effect where folks do not expect a trick, but the magic just happens. The pen is unprepared. The notebook hides the gimmick which is for all practical purposes invisible.

Bonus routine is a rubber band ring linking effect. A borrowed ring is linked into two rubber bands. This can be performed impromptu.

Paul Curry
Magician's Magic by Paul Curry

"Magician's Magic is an appropriate title for this ebook because the author, Paul Curry, is surely one of the world's best-known 'magician's magicians.'" The words are those of Martin Gardner, Scientific American's mathematical divertisements editor, himself a distinguished amateur magician and author.

"For some thirty years, Paul Curry has been inventing tricks and sleights of such beautiful simplicity that they have become standard items in the repertoire of close-up performers of magic throughout the world."

The performing of magic draws practitioners from every field - doctors, lawyers, actors,...

Jon Racherbaumer
Timely Trickery by Jon Racherbaumer

While we all intuitively understand what time is, even a child can tell you what time it is, it is a hard concept to fully understand from a scientific point of view. It is hard to define, and wrap your head around. That is part of the intrigue of making it the topic of a magic effect. Particularly for an interested and sophisticated audience it can be a very effective plot line. Jon Racherbaumer explores how magicians have made use of it over the decades, and he has unearthed some remarkable gems.

Devin Knight
Howard Thurston's Kid Hair Raising Trick by Devin Knight

A forgotten trick from the past that was first invented by Howard Thurston and used in his big show. The effect is that the magician invites up a boy from the audience and without touching the boy, he gestures toward the boy and the boy's hair stands on its end running from the front to back the back of his head, like a magical ripple. The hair falls down back to normal.

The magician raises his hand and the boy's hair once again stands on its end to the amazement of the audience. The magician quickly drops his hand and the boy's hair once again falls down, being normal again. The boy can then be used in...

Stunts of the stage and big top from starting to starring.

An ideal lesson and source book for obtaining information on acquiring show skills. Learn them and perform at fairs, traveling circuses, rodeos, "in one" before the curtain at magic shows, on cruise ships, or on TV. Let's face it. Audiences love show stunts, such as juggling, balance feats, acrobatic demonstrations, and the like. They appreciate the level of skill and dedication that these artists possess.

Because these acts are somewhat of a novelty, they fit in well with other entertainments, making an extravaganza that is a...

Santa's Magical Lump of Coal by Roy Eidem

A magic wand disappears and re-appears. Then suddenly a lump of coal magically appears. The lump of coal disappears and re-appears three times and on the third complete disappearance it jumps into the pocket. Then the lump of coal multiplies into two lumps of coal, then it multiplies into three lumps of coal. To simplify spectator observation, two lumps of coal are removed and the last lump of coal is squeezed tightly in the hand causing the coal to change "under pressure" into a diamond which is given to the lady as a gift.
