Steve Sanders
Recycling Stebbins Again by Steve Sanders

More fun with the original Si Stebbins Stacked deck. Contains an explanation of the original Si Stebbins stack and how to set up any deck of cards in that order.

Four different effects using the stack:

Kind of a Four
The spectator chooses a card and the performer prognosticates what that card is by looking at 'indicator' cards. Eventually, the 'indicator' cards are shown to be the three 'mates', matching the value of the chosen card, making four of a kind in all.

Curried Stebbins
A version of Paul Curry's Out of this World where two spectators randomly pick cards and it transpires that one spectator chose all...

David Devlin
Out Numbered by David Devlin

Three boxed decks of cards are displayed to three spectators. It is explained that in the first two decks, two specific cards have been placed in two psychologically strategic spots. In the third deck, is proof that the psychological experiment is successful. This third deck is kept by the performer, but is always in full view.

The two spectators take their decks out of the boxes, and use business cards to randomly arrive at two different playing cards. The two cards from the first spectator’s deck are used to create a card. Let’s say that the two cards are the Two of Diamonds and the...

Gerard Zitta
CANOE: Card at Any Name or Expression by Gerard Zitta

This effect is a variant of the Card at Any Number plot, but with a full routine and a very commercial and entertaining presentation, with gags, a prediction, or divination, with a puzzling final surprise revelation, and more potential. It can be adapted for any events like Christmas, New Year, Thanksgiving, Halloween, weddings, carnival, birthdays, conventions, etc.

It needs a one-time preparation that you can keep in your wallet or jacket, and can be used as an opener or a closer, for strolling, close up, parlor or stage.

Tom Phoenix
Best Trick Of The Year, So Far by Tom Phoenix

We all see those emails telling us about "the best trick of 2016".... even though we've received 10 of those emails this year. And it's only July.

Anyway, this effect amazes audiences, and fries the brains of spectators who try to figure it out.

You will learn:

  • My "Habanero Change", one of the most open and fair color changes out there
  • How to do this with a borrowed deck
  • How to do this with signed cards
Is it really the best trick so far? Well, probably not, but it's pretty good. And it's nothing compared to what's coming.

Mark Weston
Weston's Ways With Cards by Mark Weston

From the Foreword:

It has always been my aim to perform close-up magic impromptu, and with unprepared cards. This I do most of the time. Occasionally I find it is better to use the odd special card to enhance a particular routine, and as a commercial performer I have no qualms about this. In my view, the performer's personality should override all else, the props being the tools of his trade. When the blend of personality and props is exactly correct, the performance becomes an entertainment ... this is the aim.

The routines in this book are designed to appeal to those using card magic...

Lewis Ganson
Patrick Page's Cards to Pocket by Lewis Ganson

Like ghosts they pass up the sleeve and into the pocket.

From the introduction:

This routine has all the ingredients to delight the discerning performer, the effect is excellent and although it conforms generally to the classical version of "The Cards to Pocket", it has that dash of variation that makes it novel. The method is easy to perform, so easy that one wonders why many more have not thought of obviating the palming just as Patrick Page has done. It's a fine example of using subtle moves in place of sleight of hand; indeed only one simple move is used throughout and yet the effect...

A card trick that is flashy and plays big, it is suitable for parlor or stage and requires no skill.

Four Queens are each seen in four glass tumblers facing outward. Each Queen is then turned back outward and returned to its glass. Three indifferent cards are placed in each glass with the first three Queens. The fourth Queen is left by herself in the fourth glass.

Ulysses Frederick Grant
Fake Gambling Act by Ulysses Frederick Grant

EFFECT: A ten-minute routine or act as a demonstration of how the gambler cheats. Great for close-up work or a club act. In this new act; no sleights are required. Still, you apparently deal bottoms, seconds, four aces, winning hands, etc. For example, anyone shuffles the deck, cuts it and hands it to you; still you can deal yourself 4 aces.

It's a fake, that requires no practice, but they will never know it. Demonstrate your skill without lengthy practice. Appear to be a card expert, instantly. Yes, practically every magician has wished that he could present a good gambling demonstration....

Jon Racherbaumer
Piano Roles by Jon Racherbaumer

Jon loves to collect, compare, and organize tricks into themes and plots. This is his latest work on the piano trick.

WHAT IS THE PIANO TRICK?

A spectator places his hands palm down on the table in the same way a pianist places his hands on a keyboard. Then pairs of cards are placed between the spectator's fingers to set the stage. These pairs are then fairly removed to form two equal piles. An extra or "odd" card is added to one of the piles. Then, without any further movements or fanfare, the "odd" card inexplicably travels to the other pile.

Devin Knight
No Way! by Devin Knight

This is one of my all-time favorite card tricks (miracles); because after seeing it, most spectators say, "NO WAY!"

Imagine this; you spread a regular deck of cards face up between your hands. All the cards are seen to be different. You tell your spectator that you want him to remove one card behind your back so there is no way you can see the card he selected. You turn your back towards him and spread out the cards face up behind your back. He is asked to remove any card and not let you see what it is. Next he takes a Sharpie pen and puts his initials on the face of the card. He inserts...

Geoff Williams
Aronson Stack for Everybody by Geoff Williams

In 1979, Simon Aronson gave the world of magic an incredible tool - A Stack To Remember - which has come to be known as the "Aronson stack," a seemingly random arrangement of cards that has amazing miracle properties built into it.

Many magicians have avoided adding memorized deck work to their repertoires because of the daunting task of committing a stacked deck to memory. Struggling to grasp the associations of the cards and their locations within the stack, most quit after a few hours or days. I was the same way... until a Harry Anderson manuscript got me to thinking about how to make...

The Magic of Michael Skinner by Paul A. Lelekis

Nine effects from the repertoire of Michael Skinner. Forward by John Carney is very informative. (John was one of Michael Skinner's dearest friends.) Michael gave John his "Notebook of Magic" before he passed.

The introduction provides a "deep insight" into the career, life, friends, and "thinking" of this very special man. Michael Skinner is considered to be the greatest magician of all time. His sleights, subtleties, nuances, misdirection, patter, trick selection, and pace were impeccable...and the size of his repertoire was profound. Skinner could perform over 600 different effects at his prime - and...

The Cerebral Approach: Book Four by Nick Conticello

Two locations based on a unique method.

No Mean Card Trick

Effect: From an unprepared pack he has just shuffled and cut, a spectator counts out ten cards and thinks of one. He buries the packet in the deck himself. The performer cuts the pack and deals out a 5x4 face-up array. He asks the spectator to think "yes" if his card is in the array. The performer confirms the card is on the table. Next the performer asks the spectator to concentrate on which horizontal row his card is in. After some effort, the performer discards the other three rows correctly. Finally, the spectator is asked...
