Stephen Tucker

Ferry Gerats
The Gerats Principle by Ferry Gerats

The principle facilitates in determining the position and identity of the matching of cards in two decks, which have been randomized by the cutting of each deck. The principle works in conjunction with a memorized stack. A presentation is given where you don't have to commit a stack to memory.

The Gerats Principle enables you to perform the following effect:

Two decks are on the table. After two spectators have each cut one of the decks to their heart's content, the magician is able, without handling the cards, to tell whether there will be a matching of cards (ie: 2♥/2♥)) at a certain...

Jozsef Kovacs
The Gleaner by Jozsef Kovacs

Changing Collectors
Three spectators choose three cards. You lose the selections in the deck. You produce the four Kings from your pocket. The four Kings turn face down magically and after this they change into the four Aces and the three selections appear between the Aces.

Cheese In My Pocket
This is a reverse collectors effect. You put three selections between the four Queens. Then you cut the seven card packet in the middle of the deck. The three selections disappear from between the Queens and you produce them from your pocket.

Graham Hey
The Gravity Deck: a self-working killer effect by Graham Hey

A spectator signs a freely selected card (no force). The card is replaced into the deck which is shuffled and thrown loose into a McDonald's paper bag (or any other bag, or container, which can be borrowed and is completely ungimmicked). The bag is shaken by various spectators - the cards are genuinely mixed-up. The magician then reaches into the bag whilst looking away - and brings out a single card. It is the signed card! This is so easy, self-working, and perfect for close-up or on stage.

You can find the only blue card in a red deck - whilst properly blindfolded. Includes a fantastic,...

Ian Baxter
The Guarantee Card by Ian Baxter

"Another look at the Three Of Clubs problem" and you will be hard pressed to find an easier, more practical application than this one. Performer places a card on the table, spectator thinks of and names any card in the deck. Performer turns over his prediction and wow...that's it!

The raw effect is impressive: Performer extracts a card from the deck, placing it face down to the table. Spectator now names any card that comes to mind, with the tabled selection revealed as the one thought of. Yes, as brief and as straightforward as that.

A firm favourite that has been making the rounds for...

David Devlin
The Holy Dixie Cup by David Devlin

A deck is borrowed. It is thoroughly shuffled by a spectator. The performer has any spectator think of any number between one and fifty-two, but not to reveal it to anyone until asked by the performer. Nothing is written down. The number is simply thought of. The performer now has a different spectator name any card. There is no force of any kind! After a very funny gag, the performer for the first time asks the spectator to reveal the number that he has merely been thinking of. Let us assume that the number is twenty three. Without any fumbling or manipulation of the deck, no cuts, no shuffles,...

Val Andrews
The Idiot at the Card Table by Val Andrews

From Val Andrews' introduction:

Dear Idiots. . . .

Many years ago a man called S. W. Erdnase wrote a book called The Expert at the Card Table. Any similarity between his title and mine is purely intentional. . . . After all, Mister Erdnase re-arranged the letters of my surname to make his!

I am not a "card-man", even though I can watch and admire biddies, seconds, tops, bottoms, middles and injogs. I suppose the reason why I don't do these things myself is because I can't! However, I have on occasion got quite a bit of fun out of a pack of pasteboards, and I like to think that my audiences have too! So here are a few stunts,...

Lewis Ganson
The Immaculate Card Magic of Walt Lees by Lewis Ganson

Four superb card routines.

From the introduction:

It has been my pleasure to have seen Walt Lees perform his magic on many occasions and each time, the result has been very, very impressive. A quiet unassuming chap sat down, took out a pack of cards and within moments, had his audience spellbound.

...

When we were discussing the composition of this book, I nominated those tricks which I would like to have and Walt readily and generously agreed to their inclusion. That I had selected just a few, is due to the need for conforming to the size and format of the books in this 'Teach-In'...

Mark Elsdon
The Inevitable by Mark Elsdon

This is probably Mark Elsdon's strongest piece. He has used it as the closer at every single private and house party he has worked for the last couple of years and it brings the house down (pardon the pun).

The only other performer who has known about it is Paul Vigil and this is what he has to say about it:

"I call this "My friend Mark Elsdon's ACAA...," but he calls it The Inevitable; and it's one of the strongest and most clever uses of The Invisible Deck I've ever witnessed. It went directly into my performance repertoire and can quickly become the perfect closer (or encore piece)...

David Misner
The Inversion Theory by David Misner

This ebook is all about reversing a card and includes five original ideas.

  • Minority: A chosen card is pushed flush in the center of the deck, and instantly reverses itself.
  • Flip Side: The deck is spread to show that it is completely normal, and then almost instantly a card reverses itself, the previously chosen card.
  • Don't Blink: A ridiculously visual reversal. An out-jogged card reverses itself with a flick of the wrist.
  • Wrong Turn: A card is lost, and the wrong one is found. The magician states that something must have been preventing the card from coming to the top, and when the deck...

The Ace Assembly theme is a classic one. Jennings credits Bill Miesel as the first to create a card assembly effect. Here you will learn Larry Jennings' variation which avoids bringing the deck and the aces together. The four aces are shown one at a time. Very slowly one by one and absolutely fairly three aces travel to the leader ace.

The Invisible Pass by Jean Hugard & Fred Braue

It is supposedly the first book devoted to a single sleight - beautifully layed out with photos as well as drawings off all stages of the invisible pass. A detailed and thorough explanation of this form of the pass. The pass is a difficult move. Many books barely scratch the surface when they try to teach a shift or pass. This book is entirely devoted to a single move and leaves no open questions.

In a letter to Paul Fleming Nov 5th 1944 Fred Braue talks about his "invisible pass" for the first time: "...I mentioned earlier a special interest in the "pass". Jean and I are doing another little...

The Keeper Card Book by Tom Craven & Paul Gordon

This ebook is all about John Quine's startlingly good "keeper" concept. The Keeper is a Straddle Faro that shuffles the entire deck but retains the second from top card in situ. But, that's just the tip of the iceberg...

This ebook is a reprint of the "keeper" material from both The Card Magic of John Quine (which was mostly Tom's material) and BS timations. The rest of the ebook is made up of "keeper" material from Precursor, The Minotaur and a whole bunch of exciting new stuff! If you can do a Straddle Faro Shuffle, you can do The Keeper. To be frank, as Harry Lorayne pointed out, Mr. Quine's original handling...

The Key to Your Card by Stefan Olschewski

Oh no! Not another ACAAN version! But wait – maybe this one is a version you will use.

Stefan Olschewski took the old premise and turned it into a 5 minute performance piece that plays great in any setting, from close up to stage. And it will fool even magicians.

A chest is seen resting on a table center stage. You hand a key to a lady in the audience. Two spectators select a playing card and a number from 1 to 52 in the fairest manner. They may even change their minds as often as they wish.

Card and number are written on a sketchpad for everyone to see. The lady takes the key and...
