Gregg Webb
Am Musing: 54 years inside the magic circle by Gregg Webb
"Gregg Webb has written an unvarnished, tell-it-like-it-is memoir of his life within and on the fringes of New York City's subculture of magic and magicians. If you want to know what it was like growing up for over half a century with David Roth, Charles Reynolds, Jeff McBride and other magic luminaries of New York, Gregg lays it all out, frankly, as he saw it." - Stephen Minch

"Gregg Webb is one of the Zen Masters of close up and parlor magic. He is a master of minimalism. His effects and streamlined thinking inspire me to do more with less!" - Jeff McBride, Las Vegas Headliner

Devin Knight
Production from Any Ungimmicked Magazine by Devin Knight

Most productions are usually from some kind of suspicious looking box that screams magic prop. This is the old-fashion way, time to step into modern times and do away with fake looking boxes that look like something only a magician would have.

With this method, the performer enters with an everyday magazine, such as People magazine. It is held carelessly in his right hand. He flips the pages showing it is an unprepared copy of Time, People or any other publication.

In truth, it IS absolutely unprepared! He tears off the cover and shows it on both sides using just his left hand. He then...

The Jastrow Illusion in Magic by Peter Prevos

The Jastrow illusion is known to magicians as the boomerang illusion. Two boomerang-shaped ring segments seem to be of different sizes but are in fact identical.

Magicians tend to underestimate the power of this simple trick. Its use in magic is limited to children's entertainers and magic kits. This illusion is more powerful than it seems at first sight. A recent viral video shows that its deceptive power is as strong as it was when first discovered almost 150 years ago.

The Jastrow Illusion in Magic ebook provides an in-depth review of the psychology of this illusion and a detailed overview...

The Great Apple Heist by Devin Knight

A great trick for kid shows, especially at Halloween. Two kids take an equal turn at removing apples from a bowl. Yet one child ends up with 5 apples and the other 2 apples. Baffling to an audience. Magician directs from a distance.

These are some of the most unusual effects ever developed for a stand-up performer. Effects your audiences haven't seen before. These routines are based on an ancient close-up effect that has been revised so it can be seen on the largest stage or in someone's living room. You can work this under any conditions with no angle problems or special props. Routines...

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...

Magic of the Hands by Edward Victor

This is a classic in sleight-of-hand magic. From the foreword:

This BOOK is mainly on the art of sleight-of-hand and it is my earnest hope that these pages will afford practical help to both the specialist and the amateur magician.

During the period of over twenty-five years of practical magic I have formed the conclusion that in all conjuring, no matter how cleanly a trick may have been worked, it is the effect that counts.

A magical effect that one desires to "get over" must be definite and surprising. By definite I mean an easily followed plot or routine. By surprising I mean that...

More Magic of the Hands by Edward Victor

This is volume two in the classic sleight-of-hand trilogy. From the foreword:

Since many branches of Magic are again represented in this volume, a close study of it will, I sincerely hope, assist the reader in perhaps making some little change, addition or improvement in an existing 'move' or effect in which he may be interested.

I have included in this book my method of working and presenting "The Chinese Rings," mainly for those of my readers who have not up to now performed this effect, and who may desire a reliable and effective method of presentation for this "classic" trick.

In this volume the reader will find a valuable and varied collection of magical effects with something to appeal to all tastes and styles. Whatever selection the reader ultimately makes from the book to enlarge his programme, may I express the hope that he will pay the author the compliment of thorough rehearsal before public presentation. Good tricks, cunning subtleties, need to be learned with care; otherwise the author's time and the reader's money are wasted, and the public is disappointed....

Massive Fire Bowl Production by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant

Available again after being off the market for over 50 years! One of the great effects in magic has been a production of a bowl of fire; but, most of the methods were not sure-fire and were too mechanical or worked with acid and other dangerous methods. Plus the fact that they were always small flat bowls that had to be carried under the magician's coat, etc.

Here is a sure fire non-mechanical or chemical method where the performer does not have to carry a body load and produces a large massive bowl of fire from beneath an unprepared foulard with no secret pockets.

The Box Goes-In-Da Box by Peter Prevos

A treatise on the Gozinta Boxes

The Box Goes-In-Da Box. A treatise on the Gozinta Boxes. Magicians have been captivated by the Gozinta Box since it was first introduced to the magic world by Lubor Fiedler in 1970. The essence of the gozinta plot in magic is that an object fits into itself - a topological anomaly.

The word gozinta (also spelt 'gazinta') is a form of eye dialect, just like words such as fella for fellow or helluva instead of "hell of a". The word gozinta was introduced by primary school teachers to explain long division using the gozinta method: 2 gozinta 4, 3 gozinta 6 and so on. ...

Spot the Spot by Brick Tilley

Any red showing loses!

The spot game is the black widow of the midway because an untrained player has little chance to cover the red spot using the five zinc plates supplied. Rules: the player must drop the plates one at a time from a distance of at least an inch attempting to cover the entire red area. He is later allowed to drop fewer plates bettering his chances of winning.

The spot game is seldom seen these days because law enforcement consider it to be beyond the possibility of chance. It is an excellent aid to the magician, especially when combined with a demonstration of a short...

China's Song by Brick Tilley

This is China's version of the Three Shell Game or the Three Card Monte Game. It is played with three sticks held between the fingers of one hand. One stick has a little string tied to it. The task for the spectator is to identify the stick with the string. As you can imagine this is a crooked game and the performer decides when he lets you win. This game was brought by Ching Ling Foo to America in 1899.

In addition to the PDF, you will be able to download 6 videos that demonstrate several ways to perform this con game as well as videos that show you the modus operandi.
