Knight's Tour: With Free Choice of Start and EndChris Wasshuber
"I will sum up your Knight's Tour routine as follows, IT IS BRILLIANT!" - David BurmeisterIn the late 1980s I developed a method for the Knight's Tour which allows a spectator a truly free choice for the starting square and ending square of opposite color (same color start and end is mathematically impossible).
This manuscript describes in detail this method. The method attempts to minimize memorization and teaches you a system to derive a proper complete tour on the spot. The method is so flexible that you can find several different tours for one pair of start and end points. Of course,...

Magazine Memory: The Secret Notebooks of Mr. Hyde Volume 2Timothy Hyde
The Magazine Memory effect is a highly entertaining, high energy, astounding feat of mental prowess that audiences love. It has been a feature effect for many high profile performers, yet little has been written about the effect until now.
Timothy Hyde has used the routine to close his show for many years. Performing on luxury cruise ships, corporate events and at theatre shows around the world he has explored the routine in great depth.
In the classic form of the effect, pages from a current issue magazine or newspaper are distributed into the audience. Audience members randomly call...

Stunners! Plus! Two Decades of Mental MagicLarry Becker
Larry Becker's magnificent opus, Stunners! was first published in 1992.

One Man Billet RoutinesBob Cassidy
". . . I have found most uses of billets that I've seen to be painful exercises in self-deception on the part of the performer, as to what the audience finds convincing or entertaining. But when I saw Bob Cassidy do his billet routine for an audience of more than a thousand, those silly bits of paper were reduced to virtual non-entities. By the time the routine reached its conclusion he was on stage, standing back-to-back with a spectator, engaged in what was apparently a full scale drawing duplication - with no billets or envelopes anywhere in sight or awareness." - Jamie Ian Swiss, Genii, The Conjurors' Magazine, January 2005Here...

The Impromptu PsychicBob Cassidy
From the introduction: "Seemingly impromptu mental effects are among the strongest you can do. The apparent lack of preparation is what makes them seem real. But never forget that it is the illusion of impromptu, and not its reality, that gives such effects their impact."
"Impromptu" does not mean unprepared, nor does it refer to the ridiculous notion held by many that to be truly impromptu the effect must be something you can do anywhere, anytime, even if you happen to be totally naked.
Impromptu, more sensibly, refers to the effect on your audience. The effect should either SEEM to...

Thought WavesStephen Tucker
20 mentalism effects with a foreword by Max Maven. Out of print since 1985. Now again available as ebook.
From the foreword by Max Maven:
There is no question that Stephen Tucker has made his mark on the magic world...and it's about time someone made him clean it up!
The first time we met, I noticed that he had a streak of white hair in the center of his otherwise black coiffure. This gave him a very modern New Wave look, and I complimented him on his clever grooming.
He explained to me that the streak was not artificial, but rather an inherited family trait.
I'd had no idea that...

The Duffie DiaryPeter Duffie
This is a very commercial, practical, and effective diary effect. (Works with any diary.)
You begin by shuffling a deck and placing it on the table. You never touch the deck again. You now give the spectator your pocket diary which he may examine before placing it in his pocket. You never touch the diary again.
The spectator will now create a random date. He cuts the deck – this is a free cut – and turns over the card cut to. The value of this card will represent the month. This can truly be any value. He counts the cards that he cut – this will represent the day. This can truly...

The Amazing Magic Square and Master Memory DemonstrationOrville Wayne Meyer
Orville Meyer, probably most famous for developing the bullet catch for Ted Annemann, demonstrates here his skill to routine amazing effects.
The stunt of forming a sixteen cell magic square that will add up to a number suggested by a spectator is a spectacular mathematical feat. Memorizing and repeating a list of objects named by members of the audience is an interesting and impressive mental demonstration. When you combine the formation of the sixteen cell magic square with the memorized list of objects, you really have something!
But we do not stop there! In this version, the double-barreled feat...

The performer asks his audience if anyone has ever worked in telemarketing, sales conducted over the telephone. The performer spots one such person and has them join him onstage. Removing a script from his pocket the performer explains:
"Telephone sales, much like psychic readings, revolve around a predetermined script designed to influence the person on the other end of the phone -- whether the outcome happens to be the illusion of telling that person their future, or that an item is the best investment they can make. I have designed my own script that has a very specific outcome...

Magic Castle Lecture 2008Luke Jermay
Two routines that Luke feels are reflective of some of his best work to date.
Four spectators write four numbers. A fifth adds them and the number matches a prediction as well as every spectator's result who participated in the experiment. A combination of methods cancels each other to make this an unexplainable mystery.
[This is the same routine as the second effect in Three Cheers for the Underrated.

Telepathy in ActionOrville Wayne Meyer
This is the classic work on waking hypnosis, the publication that inspired recent writings by Kross, Enriquez, Knepper, and others. Meyer describes, in considerable detail (including scripts) the act originally developed by Professor George Lyman, and later performed by Meyer himself. Using no props, no preparation, no pre-show, and no confederates of any kind, this is a complete 45–60 minute act in itself, and plays to the largest audiences. Not recommended for beginners in mentalism, as it does require mature presentation skills. This is a highly-sought-after manuscript on "the real thing"...
