Challenge Mentalism Vol. 1Basil Horwitz
Basil Horwitz - the South African mentalist - released in the 1980s seven of his treasured mentalism routines and the impact was phenomenal. There are few mentalists in the world who have not heard either the recordings or read the text which was published later. Several professional and famous mentalists use the material straight from these recordings. Each of the seven effects has been used somewhere in the world on TV.

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.
Touching on Hoy
Three spectators are seated on chairs on stage. The performer asks each of them to close their eyes. He then taps the first spectator on the shoulder and asks them to think of a simple shape. He then taps the second spectator on...

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"...

Memories, Mayhem & MephistophelesMark Piazza
Three magic effects (Memories/Poe theme, Mayhem/Jack the Ripper theme, Mephistopheles/Satan theme) with a bizarre premise.
Memories: Mark presents Nevermore (in two versions) where Edgar Allan Poe fondly yet sadly remembers his inspiration for his classic poem, The Raven. (It's not who you think.)
Mayhem: Mark's From Hell routine (originally created for his Shuddershadow Mansion ebook) is amped up for the stage where chilling accounts of the Ripper's murders are added, bringing more tension to the routine through the power of verbal imagery.

Any Ring PK GimmickHank Morfin
The PK ring is a very versatile gimmick for the magician and particularly for the mentalist. However, most commercially available PK rings look like wedding bands. What if you're not married? What if you like to wear other style of rings? What if you want to remove the PK-ness of the ring?

A brand new totally impromptu newspaper test from the twisted mind that is Nefesch. No gaffs, no gimmicks, no preparation - everything is borrowed. Any paper or magazine, any page.
This is really strong and the construction is very clever. Imagine you borrow a newspaper or magazine and a pen. Both are totally and utterly ungimmicked. The spectator has a completely free choice of the page and circles a word on the page. You are able to predict the word he or she circles. Let me repeat that the pen is not gimmicked in any way and can be borrowed. The spectator really draws a circle. The best...

BOB - A confabulation routineLuke Jermay
This is Luke's excellently engineered confabulation routine. This routine combines several different methods to create a rather detailed prediction effect. The routine showcases the possibility of mixing such methods as mechanical forces, psychological forces, double writing, reverse engineered predictions, planted predictions and extending predictions using 'bolstering' techniques. Within the whole routine, the performer will only need to 'double write' three times. Each of these happen under the logical 'covers' of writing another piece of information. This is also a solution to the time delay...

The spectator is offered the opportunity to create life. It's one thing for a mentalist to read a spectator, there are techniques for age estimation and cold reading is often used to explain traits of their personalities. This is not a demonstration of cold reading.
This is a demonstration of sheer thought reading. I would like you to create a character in your mind, somebody completely different from yourself - make this hard for me! I want you to decide upon, in your mind, several details of this fictitious person.

Hanging OnSimon J. Lea
A spectator is given a new deck of cards and some clothes pegs. Tearing off the cellophane they open the deck and begin to peg cards onto a washing line. When they run out of pegs, they shuffle the deck and pick one card at random. This card helps them randomly choose one of the pegged cards.
Imagine there are 9 cards pegged to the line and they choose the 4 of diamonds - they would then count along the pegged cards stopping at the fourth card. This card is turned around and re-pegged so that the audience can see what it is.
A prediction is opened revealing the name of selected card. ...

Exhibit ASimon J. Lea
In this effect you tell a story with the help from some spectators. All important details are given to you by them and you have no control over what they say. Despite this, these details appear inside a book of matches, inside your pocket.

This ebook contains everything you need to perform the effect as a 15 mins+ piece. Including tips and jokes for playing it light. Despite the macabre subject matter the laughs come easy with the spectators providing most of them...

Larry Becker's Magic Castle LectureLarry Becker
"Everyone should work the Castle for a week. Not for the money, but for the memories." - Larry BeckerMany years ago the first mentalism trick I purchased was "Psycho II" an incredibly clever method, so clean, so fair but what a deception. Larry in his own words in 1984:
At the Psychic Entertainers Association convention in St. Louis, I was requested to demonstrate my abilities for the TV media. The effect that I chose to perform was "Psycho II". Approximately 25 years ago, I released the grand-daddy of this remarkable ESP design miracle as just plain "Psycho". It proved to be an award...

Ponderings: A Collection of Mental IdeasSean Waters
This ebook contains six effects and two essays. Ponderings includes: new methods of suggestion with cards, a routine based upon interpretive psychology, an effect with a dollar bill and even an easy, but effective, "con?" demonstration. I am confident that you will thoroughly enjoy the effects, but the astute reader will discover the real value between the lines. Most can be performed close-up or stand-up, one routine is primarily a "theatrical piece" (but could be applied to close-up). These routines demonstrate a philosophy of performing mental effects. There is also a thought-provoking essay...
