Mark Lewis
The Long and the Short of it by Mark Lewis

Moves, routines, and stories around the Svengali deck.

"Okay, I'm impressed!!! Your book on The Long and the Short of It is wonderful. I'm still working on a few of the moves that I never dreamed were possible with a Svengali Deck. Excellent Routine!!! You've definitely put in the time and have the expertise with this trick to be called a Master. You get 2 big thumbs way up for your book." - Doug Howe

"Mark Lewis has spent a considerable amount of time pitching Svengali decks. He has written a useful and succinct manuscript on the subject. There is no padding. The routine Mark explains...

J. G. Thompson Jr.
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' ...

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...

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. ...

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...

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.

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....

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!

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.

Stefan Olschewski
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...

Tom Craven & Paul Gordon
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...

Jean Hugard & Fred Braue
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 Invisible Palm by Larry Jennings

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.

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...

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)...

Joseph K. Schmidt
The Impromptu Close-Up Card Rise by Joseph K. Schmidt

Excerpt from the Introduction:

I have always believed that any close-up card rise, wherein the chosen card is "brought up" from the rear of the pack, loses so much of its effect because it must be ended too quickly, before the spectators see that the card did not really rise out of the middle. The effect of the trick is considerably strengthened by the appearance of the chosen card projecting from somewhere in the middle of the pack at the conclusion of the rise.

Jack McMillen's "PLUNGER" rising card trick was, to the best of my knowledge, the first method in which the chosen card rose from the middle...

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'...
