John Scarne & Dr. Jacob Daley
Think A Card by John Scarne & Dr. Jacob Daley

From noted card man and gaming expert John Scarne comes this clean-cut triple prediction miracle effect that will build a reputation for you. No difficult sleights. Simple, sure and direct. The publisher had been after Scarne for years to release this clever item, before he finally agreed.

Any deck of cards is shuffled by anyone and spread out on the table face up. Two spectators and the performer each merely think of a card and you write a prediction on small slips of paper for each card thought of. The thought-of cards are pushed out of the pack and the predictions are placed on top of...

They Are What They Eat by Kyle MacNeill & Cameron Francis

a cannibal cards routine + three bonus effects

"Very, very good!" - Gary Jones

From the sleightly demented minds of Kyle MacNeill and Cameron Francis comes a cool cavalcade of carnivorous card creations: Four tricks inspired by the Lin Searles' "Cannibal Cards" plot.

The main event is "They Are What They Eat", a super direct cannibal cards routine with a powerhouse kicker ending!

Effect:

Three "Vampire" Jokers are introduced. Three cards are then selected and placed on the table. One at a time, the selections are run through the Joker packet whereupon they lose their ink, turning...

David Devlin
Theta Waves by David Devlin

Nick Trost's "Eight Card Brainwave" is a classic and killer effect. That effect was the starting point for David when "Theta Waves" was in an embryonic state. What David has done is created an "Eight Card Brainwave" effect that is totally examinable. There is only one odd backed card in the eight-card packet!

The basic effect is simple. A packet of eight arbitrary cards is shown. All eight cards are different on the face. The backs however, are not shown. It is explained to the spectator that there is one card and one card only that's back is different than the others. The spectator decides...

Kent Gunn
There and Back Again by Kent Gunn

A story trick is one of the best effects one can do for lay people. See for example, Bill Malone's success with "Sam the Bellhop". Kent Gunn has altered the recipe of the story trick by adding a couple of card tricks in the middle of the story, which adds a new twist to the genre. Kent feels that it is is the best-received piece he has ever come up with. He also provides advice on how to come up with your own story, which ultimately is the best way to go.

("There and Back Again" was formerly known as "I Left My Heart in San Francisco".)

Joe Karson
The World's Fastest Card Trick by Joe Karson

This is the epitome of Karson's comedic talent. Other than "Zombie" this trick is often the only other thing remembered about Joe Karson. When he published this effect, Karson was riding the crest of his wave of popularity. The World's Fastest Card Trick was often a show stopper when he performed it at various magic conventions and shows.

Karson explains in this ebook the entire work on this trick. He gives the reader the presentation, the method, the patter, and most importantly, the timing. This trick literally got screams of laughter.

Jim Sisti
The Working Professional's Ambitious Card by Jim Sisti

From the introduction:

Though there is little that is "new" in the way of sleights here, this routine came from years of careful trial and error. The five phases represented here are the final result. I've found, after thousands of performances, that for the walk-around performer, this routine is just the right length to maintain spectator interest. Also, like any magic routine where the same effect is apparently repeated a number of times, each phase offers an apparently more impossible set of circumstances. It also ends with a natural applause cue.

Bob Hummer
The Whispering Spirit by Bob Hummer

An entertaining mental feat with a borrowed deck of cards.

From the brilliant mind of Bob Hummer comes a divination mystery that seems impossible, yet you do it every time. The performer takes the spectator on an adventure with a borrowed deck and a dead person's age (which is furnished by anyone in the room). In some uncanny manner, the "Whispering Spirit" aids the performer in solving the mystery. The performer does not need to touch the deck while they are in the spectator's hands.

There are no setups, stacks or cyclical rotations. The cards may be borrowed. The cards are not marked....

The Wandering Queens by Devin Knight

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.

Avik Dutta
The Vortex Principle: and other madnesses by Avik Dutta

Fresh from the success of his Confession and Oblivion manuscripts, Avik is back, this time with a short treatise on cards.

The star of this show is his 'Vortex principle' - a method for covertly spotting and controlling multiple cards from a fairly shuffled deck. One could describe it as a 'control in stages', because it is not one single movement you do to control a card. It is something you do while you casually shuffle your cards.

Next, comes an effect called "Any Card at Any Name", which employs an age-old principle to powerful effect.

The central section of the manuscript details 'The Narcissus...

The Vortex Cards by Stephen Tucker

Two full-color laminated Visa-type credit cards are shown. As you hold one, and move it in a circle, the image of a silver coin appears at its center, which (incredible as it sounds) you then shake off into reality!

You then explain that it can just as easily be deposited back into your bank-account and removed whenever you want it.

Once you've produced several coins, you can use the two Vortex Cards as covers for your favorite matrix routine. Stephen includes his Vortex-Matrix routine.

David Devlin
The Visitation by David Devlin

This came about thanks to Larry Jennings' classic effect, "The Visitor". David has always loved that effect. It is impromptu, there is no setup, a borrowed deck can be used, and the effect is stunning. One day, David was playing with the routine, and began to think along the lines of, "Wouldn't it be cool if the selected card could be seen the entire time? What if the spectator could see their card sitting between the two face down cards right up until the very moment that it vanishes?" The answers, of course, are yes! Of course it would be cool. And with The Visitation these things are possible!

Biagio Fasano
The Unusual Suspects by Biagio Fasano

How to find the guilty card despite a possible reticent witness!

An effect of mentalism, possible from a distance (in a video chat or even just on the phone), whose story is very loosely inspired by the movie "The Unusual Suspects" and in which the spectator is asked to choose five random cards from the deck. They will represent the suspects of a major bank robbery. Only one will be the real culprit. Despite the free arrangement of the cards and the various shuffles of face-up and face-down cards, in the end the mentalist will always succeed to guess all of these:

The Untouchables by David Devlin

This is a new Any Card at Any Number effect in which (apparently) the spectator does all of the work, and it happens all in his hands. Not only that, but the performer has predicted the entire outcome; the card and the number, far in advance! This is all true. The performer never touches the deck once the effect begins.

Here is the effect as the audience sees it: The deck is 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...

Brick Tilley
The Unkindest Cut by Brick Tilley

A false cut that uses the action of burning a card as misdirection. Particularly useful for cheating at BlackJack.

Chuck Smith was recorded doing this cut. (A letter from Chuck Smith to Brick Tilley is reproduced in the PDF.) He used it to beat players during the years of WWII. The sequence of actions is the following. You first openly cut the cards and complete the cut. Then you take the top card, turn it face up and place it as the bottom card. During the action of burning the top card you undo the cut. The demo video will prove how honest and fair this looks.
