Nathan Kranzo
Kranzilla Unleashed by Nathan Kranzo

With effects ranging from visibly sliding a tan line up your arm, right through to enabling a spectator to cut to the four Aces, Nathan combines raw cunning with extensive magical knowledge to produce magic that is always interesting and usually totally baffling.

Hal Saxon
Switcheroo by Hal Saxon

Invisibly switch a folded playing card (bill, cash, sugar pack, ...) against another right in front of their eyes.

Destined to be in your EDC (everyday carry). A real crowd-pleaser. A perfect close-up and table-hopping effect. A very fast, angle-proof, and up-close transformation with spectator involvement. Not a thumb-tip. This effect uses a homemade gimmick that most homes would have. The gimmick takes about five minutes to make. Both playing cards can be inspected.

You can also change bills, billets, cash a check, change sugar to sweeten low, etc.

Absolutely incredible misdirection...

Graham Hey
Going GaGa by Graham Hey

Going GaGa is a new ebook by Graham Hey containing some brand-new material and a couple of little-known classics brought up to date. They're all easy to do and brilliantly effective. You'll probably have most things you need to do these tricks - cards, duplicates, envelopes, etc.

Going GaGa is a great mentalism effect and a total 'magician fooler'. It's clever and easy to do. The performer hands a prediction to a spectator. Two spectators are given a pile of cards each. The first spectator shuffles his cards and selects any one. He is handed a list of celebrities and counts down - if he...

Michael P. Lair
Act 1 by Michael P. Lair
  • Jack-In-The-Box: A playing card is selected by a spectator and ripped into four pieces. The pieces are paper clipped and set on top of a jack-in-the-box. The handle is turned, the familiar tune played, and the clown pops up. When he does, the selected card appears fully restored in the clown's hands.
  • Silver Fire: When the magician lights a cigarette lighter, a half dollar appears. Light it again, and the coin vanishes. Light the lighter a third time, and the half-dollar reappears from within a cigar tube.

Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph
Xenon Levitation by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

With this tool, you are able to gently float small objects such as matches, feathers, playing cards, sponge balls or rubber bands, etc. a few centimeters above the table.

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.

Alexander Herrmann
Herrmann's Wizards' Manual by Alexander Herrmann

From coin tricks to card tricks, black art, mindreading and even ventriloquism, this work is meant as an introduction for the budding magician and showman.

Excerpt from the introduction:

Magic naturally separates into two divisions: One, as performed by pure sleight-of-hand with ordinary objects; and the other, which depends upon apparatus or mechanical appliances; and these are called respectively Drawingroom, and Grand or Stage Magic. The former is made up of feats depending upon manual dexterity, chemical combinations, and arithmetical problems. Grand magic, likewise, consists of...

Secrets of the Street Conjurer by Wilfred Huggins & Frederic Culpitt

A collection of conjuring secrets for magicians who entertain when surrounded by spectators.

Excerpt from the preface:

The compilation of "A Street Conjurer's Secrets" is the outcome of many years of observation in this country, Australia, America, France and Germany. That the effects are well-known is not to be denied, but it is extremely doubtful if many conjurers are aware of the actual method used by the street entertainer.

Magic Ian
Best Dam Tricks: 25 Rubber Penetration Tricks by Magic Ian

Lubor Fiedler's famous dental dam illusion principle is applied to a variety of tricks and routines, not just the penetration of a coin through a rubber sheet. The only sad part here is that the name Lubor Fiedler cannot be found anywhere in this publication. No credit was given.

Excerpt from the introduction by Walter Gibson:

When the rubber penetration came into popularity several years ago, it represented something really new in magic. Here was a trick that was actually accomplished before it began, leaving onlookers baffled by a visible penetration of a coin through a sheet of solid rubber, with no clue whatever...

Gregg Webb
Triplets 8 by Gregg Webb

This edition features a completely different routine for MacDonald's Aces and a simple way to make the gaffs yourself. This is more of a platform or parlor version and not a close-up trick. The patter and presentation are also completely different from MacDonald's Aces. This is also different from the version in Hilliard's Lost Notebook. Gregg performed this on TV in 1968 long before Hilliard's notebook was even found. If you pride yourself on being different from the crowd, you'll love this. A very catchy storyline and premise is included.

Next follows many updates on a trick of Gregg's,...

Excerpt from the introduction:

In this book I deal with the latest and best small tricks. The majority of the professional conjurers to-day are presenting small tricks in their programmes. I have been asked by subscribers not to include illusions requiring stage traps, but to confine myself to secrets of tricks that can be done by the average performer, and the apparatus not to be costly.

I have taken care to meet with the wishes of all subscribers to this book. I have omitted complicated tricks and combinations likely to fog an audience. The magician to-day understands that he must be...

Lessons in Magic by Henry Hatton

For the time this was published, in the middle of the 19th century, these twelve lessons in magic are probably one of the best instructions in conjuring published in the English language, even though the intended reading audience was young folks. Professor Hoffmann's Modern Magic is still a decade into the future.

Henry Hatton, writing here under his real name Patrick Henry Cannon, describes a range of stage and parlor effects including some sleight-of-hand with coins and cards. His description of the pass is by far the best description I have read prior to Erdnase - almost 40 years prior that is! The accompanying...
