Rufus Steele
The Last Word on Cards by Rufus Steele

This is certainly not 'the last word on cards'. There never will be a last word on cards. But it is a delightful collection of self-working card effects. Some of the brightest minds contributed: Ed Marlo, Eddie Joseph, Al Leech, Bill Simon, Eddie Fields, Oscar Weigle, Audley Walsh and of course Rufus Steele himself.

You will find the original "Sam and Moe" card story on which Bill Malone's "Sam the Bellhop" is based. I also found a very interesting magic card square routine that I was not aware of.

For anyone who likes clever card tricks which are based on subtleties, math and other clever ruses, this is a must read.

Stephen Tucker
The Lazarus Card by Stephen Tucker

This is the strangest rising card method ever. Why? Because the card that rises is the actual gimmick. Also, the selected card rises and (to amusing patter) its back changes from red to blue. This means that you only have to pocket it, which is logical as its back no longer matches the rest of the cards, and the deck is clean.

  • No weights, threads, elastics, springs, electronics, cut-out cards or anything like you've ever seen before!
  • Add the gimmicked card to any red backed Bicycle deck!
  • Bonus routine: Hallucination Plus
  • Bonus routine: Impromptu, Borrowed Rising Cards

Stephen Tucker
The Lazarus Deck by Stephen Tucker

An unbelievable version of the legendary rising cards effect.

  • no weights
  • no threads
  • no elastics
  • no springs
  • no magnets
  • no wires
Effect: Three cards are freely selected, then returned to deck. You now hold the cards in the time-honoured rising cards grip and, one-by-one, three cards rise out from different parts of the deck. You turn their faces towards the audience and... they are the three selections!

You can have one, two or even three cards selected then... have them rise out from different parts of the deck. Actually, you can rise more than three cards, but no more than fifty-two....

Michael Maxwell
The Lazy Man's Interlocking Setup II by Michael Maxwell

One spectator receives a prediction for safe keeping. Another spectator receives a portion of the deck, shuffles it thoroughly, deals cards one at a time on the table, and stops whenever he likes. He may stop at the first card, the last card, or anywhere in between. The value of the randomly chosen card is used to count to a card in the remaining portion of the deck. And that card matches the prediction.

Larry Jennings
The Lie Detector by Larry Jennings

An entertaining an fairly easy to perform effect.

Spectator picks a card, remembers it, and returns it. Performer claims that a pack of cards is like a computer and that he can program it to function like a lie detector. After the performer takes out some cards and reinserts them into the pack, the entire deck is handed to the spectator who answer and spells his answers by tabling cards. Was the card a face or point card? Was the card red or black? What suit was it? The bottom card of the tabled packet always shows the correct answer and therefore it is clear if the spectator told the truth...

Pit Hartling
The Little Green Lecture by Pit Hartling

Pit Hartling's Little Green Lecture describes five of Pit's favorite card effects. Each is clearly and completely described and illustrated. One trick, Chaos is a virtually self-working trick involving two freely selected cards that completely stumped the experts at the FFFF gathering. The effect is extremely funny and the method is so clever that there is nothing you need to hide. You say exactly what you do, actually you describe the method in your patter but nobody will believe you, because actions and words create a hilariously conflicting situation that will have your audience laughing. ...

Frank Bonville
The Little Secrets by Frank Bonville

A great book on the tricks of the trade of professional gamblers, how they cheat and get an advantage in the game. From the introduction:

It has been my fortune, or misfortune, whichever you wish to term it, to have traveled a good deal and to have observed not a little. I have engaged in more than one business; it pleased my fancy, and can say, with a pardonable pride, that I have met with some degree of success. During the past few years of my life I have studied human nature in all its phases, from its lowest forms in the gutter, in the slums, in the gilded dens of vice, in the gambling...

The Living End by J. G. Thompson Jr.

Over 200 different impromptu take-a-card trick endings.

From the introduction by John Braun:

He has definitely struck "pay dirt" in this book, which he has whimsically titled THE LIVING END. In simpler terms, this is an encyclopedic collection of endings for one of the most popular branches of Magic - the "take a card, look at a card, remember a card, think of a card, any card," opening.

Having completed this stage, the performer KNOWS either the identity of the card or its whereabouts in the pack, and sometimes he knows both. And, as John Northern Hilliard put it back in 1908 in DOWNS' ...

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...

At the spectators indication the performer stops and removes the two cards at that point. Both hands and both cards are shown on both sides and without further manipulation the two cards are placed together face to face, and a silver dollar is seen to slowly emerge from between them.

After rolling up his sleeves and again showing his hands empty, the performer picks up the deck from the table and shuffles it again. The cards are fanned out, and again...
