Mentalism & Spiritism in Magic & Conjuring

Mentalism (also called "Mental Magic") involves you demonstrating unusual, supernatural or highly-developed mental, cognitive or intuitive abilities. Performances may involve amazing acts of precognition, divination, clairvoyance, telepathy, mind control or psychokinesis. As a mentalist or psychic, you may also perform hypnosis, memory effects and lightning-fast mathematics. Ted Annemann is one of our most frequently-read authors...but don't forget to check out our other ebooks by important mentalists and psychic entertainers like Bob Cassidy, Leo Boudreau, Dale Hildebrandt, Al Mann, Larry Becker, Timothy Hyde, Burling Hull and a host of others. We're constantly adding new ebooks, so please check back often to access the latest and greatest you can get in the exciting realm of mentalism!

Ken de Courcy
Automentalism by Ken de Courcy

A complete man and wife telepathy act.

A nicely worked out two-person act that eliminates long memorization preparation and training. The basic idea can be adapted and extended to fit your needs.

(Originally this booklet was sold with an 'apparatus'. The 'apparatus' was a set of cue cards or cue stickers which could be pasted onto cards. These are not included in this digital reproduction. However, the ebook does include images of all the cue cards and you can therefore make them yourself.)

A truly sensational mental telepathy act with ordinary playing cards and other objects handed...

Arthur Edward Waite
The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts by Arthur Edward Waite

The primary reason we are offering this work is that Ted Annemann included it in his "Five-Foot Shelf of Magic". I am assuming he included it because he felt a conjurer needed to have some understanding of black magic and be able to converse intelligently about it. It may also be a source for plots and scripts for routines.

Propless Chronologue by Unknown Mentalist

There will be no one who is not aware of the Chronologue diary effect by the great Bob Cassidy. This is a propless version of the same effect.

There are 2 pure propless versions of Chronologue which are explained where no diary or datebook and no physical deck or playing cards are in play. The process is quick, direct, and purely propless between the performer and a participant. The whole process takes about 2 minutes approx.

Using an imaginary diary and an imaginary deck, the lucky card of a participant for her birthday is nailed by the performer accurately. There are also 2 almost propless versions...

Unknown Mentalist
Dieversion by Unknown Mentalist

Dieversion uses a single ungimmicked die to perform several fantastic effects. Multiple versions of a simple ranging force are used in a unique and novel manner to create impossible seeming outcomes.

In the routines, you apparently use your "Pollyanna Personality" to reveal an impossible piece of information being thought of by the participant. And as for the meaning of the word Pollyanna, try googling it and you will see that it has an interesting juicy meaning.

The following 6 routines are explained.

  1. Wax Novelist
  2. Conjured Tomb
  3. Eight of Hearts

Graham Hey
Can You Feel the Love Tonight? by Graham Hey

Five cards with different emotions written on them are placed into non-marked envelopes and freely mixed up. The performer holds each one against his forehead. Can he feel the 'Love' card tonight? He certainly can! Easy, baffling mentalism.

Bonus effects:

  • SHAKE, RATTLE & PREDICT - a cool mentalism effect using one gimmicked card you probably own already.
  • PRETTY GREEN - a golfing-themed effect which is self-working. (You will need a prop for this, but may already have what's required).

Lester Lake & T. A. Whitney
The Talking Skull Book by Lester Lake & T. A. Whitney

It talks, it answers questions, it floats, etc. The most complete treatise on the talking skull ever published. The Talking Skull is an entertaining and versatile effect that will find a place in any magician's act. It's as much at home in a Midnight Spook Show as it is in a straight magic routine. It plays as well on a nightclub floor as it does on television. The Talking Skull can be performed as seriously as the occasion requires, or it can provide much-needed comic relief in between the more serious effects in your show.

There have been a number of methods for the Talking Skull released...

Future Test 2024 by Unknown Mentalist

The previous version of this routine, Future Test 2021 was very well received. This routine can also be performed in almost all performing situations - one-on-one, close-up, parlor, street, virtual show or even on a basic video call.

Future Test is a 'packs small plays big' kind of effect. Actually packs very small in your wallet and plays very big to a full room or in a virtual show or even over a video call. This effect is done on the back of your business card which you can later leave with the participant as a souvenir or send over to the participant's phone as a virtual image as a 'digital souvenir'. ...

Here under the guise of a scientific (pseudo) experiment, you actually demonstrate your mind-reading abilities in a very novel and stunning manner. I like it a lot when a mentalism effect is couched in a pseudo-scientific presentation. The credibility and believability factors increase exponentially. The effects described...

This is a mentalism effect where the magician, using three special cards that he shows represent three different superheroes shown on both sides of each of the cards, instructs a spectator to arrange them in the order she prefers and to shuffle them, at first with one hand, then using both at the same time.

When finished, she will cover with the palm of her hand at first only one of the cards and then, after the next two-handed shuffle, as many as two out of three...

The Bookbearer by Mystic Alexandre

A presentation for any book test that uses the flashback method.

Have you heard of the Bookbearer? This is a storytelling, bizarre presentation to be used with any book with the "flashback" principle. If you own such a book, you could use this.

I see many performers using such books, some presentations are good, but most are not as they merely riffle the pages, tell the subject to stop them and remember the first word on the page, and then reveal it. Bah. Here you will tell the brief story of the Bookbearer, and in the end, either subtly suggest you're the actual Bookbearer. Or that you're...

A Bridge Between Realms by Mystic Alexandre

A performance guide for "Frozen in Time".

I've owned the original Frozen in Time by Masuda since it was first released in the 1990s. Sure, nowadays there are physical pocket watches or wristwatches controlled electronically that you can do this with, but to me what's astonishing about Frozen in Time is that it's a gosh darn photograph! That's just crazy! How can a photograph happen to be set to an hour the subject chooses?

To me, Frozen in Time is a storytelling piece, not a prediction effect. I go into more detail in the manuscript as to why. It's fair to say I initially struggled with...

Secrets of a Vaudeville Mind Reader by Mystic Alexandre

In the dimly lit chambers of an old book store, tucked away in the heart of an antiquated town, I stumbled upon a handwritten booklet that would alter the course of my journey as a mentalist and psychic entertainer. The booklet, tattered and cloaked in mystery, beckoned to me like a siren's call, promising revelations of an enigmatic world that had long faded into obscurity - the world of a Vaudeville Mind Reader. As a seeker of esoteric knowledge and a student of the arcane arts, I would unearth in this dusty place a small treasure of wisdom that transcended most of what I had encountered...

Ken de Courcy
The Systematic Seer by Ken de Courcy

A simplified system of fortune telling.

One of the most effective ways of entertaining informally is by Fortune-Telling and, as a magician, you must have been asked many times if you can "tell fortunes". To do this properly requires much study and memory work, time you can probably not afford. So here is a new, simplified system that can easily be applied to Palmistry, the Tarot, Sand Reading, and almost every other form of divination. Apart from anything else, it's a great way to make friends.

The problem has always been to obtain sufficient 'cues' with which to give a 'reading'. Whilst...
