Mago Marko
Showstuff by Mago Marko

There are many books published for the card magician, the close-up magician, the mentalist, the illusionist, and even the kid show performer but there are very few books for the general practitioner of club and stage magic.

Showstuff caters to that neglected segment of the magic community. In this ebook, you'll find more than 50 tricks and routines, all of them professionally tested.

  • Original showy tricks for your club and stage shows.
  • Comedy routines that will get you laughs.
  • New uses for common magic props you own.
  • Strong closing items that will add professional luster to your show...

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...

Maurice Sardina
The Magic of Rezvani by Maurice Sardina

Translated from French (La Magie du Sorcier) to English by Dariel Fitzkee. It details the tricks, moves, ideas, and improvements of Rezvani, the Persian magician who has been a sensation among the magicians of Paris. Overall it is an excellent work, particularly for those who appreciate the finer points of sleights and how they are deployed in tricks. There is a lot here for card magicians. Also his most famous trick the Tomato trick is explained, but for that routine, I suggest studying The Cushions of the Princess: or the tomato game.

Hereward Carrington
Magic is Fun / Magic for Everyone by Hereward Carrington

From the introduction:

There is no more fascinating study, when once an interest in the subject has been aroused, than conjuring - or, as it is popularly called, "Magic." One of the most delightful of all pastimes is the inventing and performing of new tricks, and watching their effect upon the audience - who do not know the secrets of the various "sleights" performed. We all know how fascinating the professional conjuror's entertainment is, - and how mystifying! So I propose to take my readers, - in the present book, - into the very heart of the mystery - to explain exactly how the important...

Peter Wilker
Methods for Minor Miracles by Peter Wilker

This work builds on Wilker's The Creation of Magic. It is helpful to have read it, but it is not required.

There is a definite mathematical theme running through this ebook. Not that there is any heavy math involved, just that the routines have an underlying mathematical basis. Wilker has a variety of interesting presentations and throw-offs that disguise the mathematics during the performance.

"Methods for Minor Miracles is an enjoyable and worthwhile read." - Stephen Hobbs

Peter Wilker
Euromagic by Peter Wilker

From the preface:

Each of the six chapters of these Lecture Notes contains one routine; but there is no connection between them except that they are all "European". European? Isn't magic international? Of course, there is no specific European or American or Japanese branch of our art. What I mean by European is on a more personal level. I am a Swiss living in England, to be precise in Cornwall, with many friends in my home as well as my adopted country, but also in Germany. Over the years we constantly exchanged ideas on particular tricks and on magic in general. In all my books I used many...

Paul Curry
Sealed Miracles No. 2 by Paul Curry

Here's an expanded and updated edition of the second and final Paul Curry manuscript in the series with a pair of powerful effects that'll give you a reputation as an outstanding magician and psychic entertainer. Both of these card miracles exhibit the brilliant methodology that you've come to expect from Paul Curry.

Think Of A Card

A spectator merely thinks of a card. The performer jots down the name of a card. The spectator names his card and the performer shows what he wrote - it's the name of the thought-of card. A clean-cut, logical effect.

Follow-up

This is a variation of the...

Paul Curry & Oscar Weigle
Sealed Miracles No. 1 by Paul Curry & Oscar Weigle

Here's an expanded and updated edition of a Paul Curry manuscript that contains not one, but two powerful effects that will give you a reputation as an outstanding magician and psychic entertainer.

Probability Zero

A batch of business cards are numbered and mixed, with their number sides down. A truly sensational climax is reached when a spectator, although he selects the cards at random and doesn't know the numbers on the cards, succeeds in arranging them in numerical order. Is it just chance? Not likely - the odds are over 300,000 to 1 against it.

Peter Wilker
Magic From Germany by Peter Wilker

From the introduction:

In English-speaking countries very little is known about magic in Germany, let alone in other countries like Poland, Switzerland or Spain. Unless a magician from one of these countries attends conventions in Britain or America regularly, and unless he speaks English, he will rarely be known. The two German magicians I want to talk about in these Lecture Notes - one from each side of the former Berlin wall - are perhaps the two best known in Germany today. Their names are Joro and Jochen Zmeck - how many of my readers, however, have ever heard of them?

Joro's real name is Bruno...

Senor Mardo
Applause by Senor Mardo

Sixteen beautiful routines, moves, and effects that, like the title says, will earn you plenty of audience applause. Most of the audience-pleasing routines use props that you likely already own, such as a Vanishing Cane, Comedy Funnel, Liquid Appear, silks, rope, magic wand, and other standard items.

Plus, Mardo tips a trio of coin effects that use standard coins and a modicum of sleights to accomplish the magic. And a swell card flourish that was later featured in the movie "The Sting," starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford.

Will Blyth
Effective Conjuring by Will Blyth

From the introduction:

Every item has been presented by the author, not only before the general public, who may generally be relied on to give audible expressions of their likes and dislikes, but also before meetings of conjurers, where candid criticism has resulted in filling up several possible pitfalls and leaving everything fairly even and workable.

Most of my previous works on conjuring have dealt with specific subjects, such as paper, match-sticks, handkerchiefs, coins, etc. The present volume, however, contains a variety of useful effects which, if presented with due regard to the...

Hidden Gems 5 by Mark Elsdon

More excerpts from my notebooks, listing fabulous tricks that have caught my eye over the years. The first four Hidden Gems ebooks have been incredibly popular so here we are with Volume 5.

These are tricks that define the very concept of 'hidden in print'. In each entry, I list the trick, where you can find it, why I love it and why you should look it up. I always describe the effect, occasionally the presentation, but never the method. Most are in books that you already own (or should!), some are in magazines that you can easily get access to and the odd one or two entries will send you...

As previously recounted, I've been making notes and sticking Post-its in all my books for decades, so I still have hundreds of great tricks book-marked, annotated, and logged.

The Creation of Magic by Peter Wilker

A practical guide to the invention of tricks plus newly created tricks.

"I must say that I was prepared to dislike this book ... Wilker's discussion, however, is so pleasant and unassuming that one can hardly disagree with him. In part, this is because Wilker seems to recognize the inherent problems in stating hard and fast rules about creativity and so limits his conclusions accordingly." - Stephen Hobbs

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.
