Scott Creasey
The Sandwich Peek by Scott Creasey

Here's what your audience sees: You take a stack of business cards and show them on both sides then hand one to a volunteer to draw a picture, write a word, print a number, or even write a question, there are no restrictions. The stack is turned blank side up and their card dropped drawing side down on top. It is then fairly cut to the center where it remains reversed in the middle at all times.

Even under these conditions you can get a full card peek, reveal the information and yet still show their card reversed in the center whenever you wish.

Finally, you run through the stack and...

Cathy Shadows & Paul Voodini
The Secret Garden by Cathy Shadows & Paul Voodini

Paul Voodini presents Cathy Shadows' Secret Garden, the final PDF in the Cathy Shadows series.

For the serious student and the experienced reader, comes the Secret Garden. This is a fascinating and unique reading technique whereby the sitter is taken on a guided visualization of a beautiful garden. Within the walls of this garden lay the answers to the sitter's most deeply held questions - what did the past mean, what is happening to me now, and how will the future develop?

It is entirely possible to present this reading technique both in an esoteric/psychic manner or as a character analysis...

Robert A. Nelson
The Secrets of Doctor "A" by Robert A. Nelson

"Dr. A" was a real-life figure, having devoted 33 years of his life as a very successful office reader and clairvoyant. He gave Robert Nelson full permission to publish his unique secrets, however he requested that he remain anonymous.

He devised, created and used what Nelson regarded as one of the finest - if not the finest - methods of giving private readings and (apparently) reading the minds of others.

The system described is so subtle and versatile that Dr. "A" and Nelson both were able to give thought-staggering readings and demonstrations under the most adverse of conditions, whether...

David Numen
The Sentir Tear by David Numen

"This is brilliant" - Bob Cassidy

David Numen describes his thoughtfully engineered center tear variation. He uses many photos to communicate the subtleties clearly.

As an application for his center tear David describes a Living and Dead Test.

And as a bonus he teaches you a wonderful book test. In terms of what the audience will see and recall this is pretty much similar to the Canasta Book Test in effect but quite different in method. A page number and a line number are chosen freely by two spectators - both choices unknown to the performer. A third spectator is asked to select a book (or they...

Steve Pellegrino
The Seven Keys of the Jinx by Steve Pellegrino

Annemann's Seven Keys To Baldpate has been a classic effect for over 80 years. Traditionally mentalists have used one of two methods to achieve the effect. There was either a switch of the keys or a unique lock. However, as long as this effect has been available, another method, often overlooked, offers several advantages over the original.

  • There's no reason to switch the keys
  • No special locks or keys
  • No special bags
In this manuscript is the original routine and several methods based on the routine. It's inexpensive to put together with one trip to the hardware store or locksmith. In addition,...

Devin Knight
The Skeleton of Jekyll and Hyde by Devin Knight

Most magicians are familiar with the Do-As-I-Do card trick, where both the magician and spectator select the same card from two different decks. This has been a staple of card magic for over 100 years. But can you imagine doing this with two dictionaries where both the spectator and magician select the same word?

Can you imagine doing this with no forcing of a word! It's possible using a long-forgotten secret from the 30s and updated for today's performers. Read on.

Let's assume you are the spectator and I am the magician. I have two identical large-print dictionaries. You chose a page...

Devin Knight
The Spectator Knows by Devin Knight

Apparently give a random spectator temporary psychic abilities.

This is the same routine that was used by Dunninger in his stage shows, according to the late Al Mann. Two spectators are invited on stage. A deck of cards is shown and shuffled and a lady selects one and returns it to the deck. She does not show the card to either the mentalist or the other spectator. The mentalist again shuffles the deck and says, "We all have psychic powers, if we would just develop them."

The magician then hands the deck to the other spectator and says go to the corner of the room and look through the cards and see if...

Henry Ridgely Evans
The Spirit World Unmasked by Henry Ridgely Evans

Illustrated investigations into the phenomena of spiritualism and theosophy. [Note: This is a reprint of the earlier Hours with the Ghosts.

From the preface:

The author has had sittings with many famous mediums of this country and Europe, but has seen little to convince him of the fact of spirit communication. The slate tests and so-called materializations have invariably been frauds. Some experiments along the line of automatic writing and psychometry, however, have demonstrated to the writer the truth of telepathy or thought-transference. The theory of telepathy explains many of the marvels ascribed to spirit intervention in things mundane. ...

There are absolutely no words that need to be spoken nor any body signals required. You and your assistant do not even face each other and there is no eye contact. And yet, you can seemingly relay thoughts to your assistant.

This method is ideal for close up situations and with a bit of audience management can easily be adapted to a parlor situation too.
