Ted Annemann
En Rapport by Ted Annemann

A complete, routined act of telepathy, mind reading, and clairvoyance, designed for two people, and possible of being presented before a most critical audience. The minimum of preparation is necessary for the maximum of effect.

Paul Fleming wrote:

There are several types of "two-person mental acts," but in most instances an exhibition of this kind consists of the performer transmitting information, apparently by means of "telepathic waves," to a "medium" seated a little distance away. The Zanzics, the Sharrocks, and the Ushers were among the leading exponents of such work in the vaudeville field; and...

Sh-h-h--! it's a secret by Ted Annemann

Annemann describes a wealth of forty pieces in this wonderful booklet. The first, "Call me up sometime" is a beautifully direct telephone miracle. This is a prime example of Annemann's mantra of 'effect before method'.

I found the following line from Annemann's introduction funny:

I like to do these things so well that someday I'm going to write a twenty page introduction and follow it with one trick! Trouble is, however, that after that harangue the trick will HAVE to be good.

1st edition 1934; 50 pages.

Ted Annemann
Annemann's Test of the Tiber by Ted Annemann

Annemann has created a wonderfully direct telephone book test where he has eliminated faked books, pads, mathematical oddities, forcing decks and the thousand and one "foreign" objects that have been used in combination. He incorporated an Al Baker idea to make this a true miracle. You also get notes added by Kanter's magic shop which further explain various details and important points.

first edition, 1932; 2 pages.

Ted Annemann & Victor Farelli
202 Methods of Forcing - with Victor Farelli Notes by Ted Annemann & Victor Farelli

This is the same ebook as 202 Methods of Forcing except this one additionally includes the personal notes of Victor Farelli.

Farelli's notes can roughly be categorized in three groups. One is attribution where he writes the inventor's name, or at least the one he thought originated this particular force. The second group is quality, where he writes attributes like 'very good', 'ingenious' etc. And the third group are extensions, variations or entirely new forces. Some of these entries are even dated and could be of particular interest to historians.

Although I think these notes are quite interesting, please...

The Cards Never Lie! by Ted Lesley

A ZODIAC AND TAROT MIRACLE

Devised by Ted Lesley in association with Ken de Courcy this may be the first close-up Tarot and Zodiac act. Not a single effect but an entire act.

Merely describing the effects does not do justice to the routine however we'll do our best...Telling spectators that cards and numbers play a part in their lives, the performer tells them that his diary contains a list of 'lucky' cards and numbers, a different combination of card and number is set against each date.

A lady is asked to think of her birthday and is shown a pack of cards bearing Zodiac signs. Upon...

  • no expensive gimmicks (everything can easily and cheaply be made at home)

On the night of the performance the chest is brought to the theater where it is opened by...

A well performed Living and Dead Test can create intense emotions. Please use these effects responsibly.

Word of Mind by Terri Rogers

A spectator is handed a theatrical review sheet and is asked to choose one of the hundreds of words that make up the various articles. There is no restriction of choice and the word is not written down. It is merely thought of by the spectator.

When the spectator is ready the mentalist begins to concentrate and slowly, letter by letter, reveals the mentally chosen word. It is that direct. A spectator things of a word and you reveal it. The spectator can choose a different word and you can repeat the effect right away.

Simple to learn, simple to perform, devastating in effect. What more...

Terry G. Smith
The Psychic Antenna by Terry G. Smith

This routine allows you to have a spectator think of ANYTHING, have them write it down, and you will be able to determine what it is and end up clean. All you need to carry with you is a few blank cards, a pen and most importantly, a paper clip, as it will be..... The PSYCHIC ANTENNA.

Everything in this routine is natural and logical with no "funny" moves and focuses on everything except the method.

The routine relies on sleight-of-hand of moderate difficulty. The moves are motivated and blend into the normal action and movement of the routine.

Force This by Terry G. Smith

Terry wanted to be able to show a packet of cards, shuffle them and have someone just look at one and then he reproduces it. He didn't want to use marked cards or some sort of stack, but he wanted it to be sure fire. As a result he came up with Force This.

While the method is not new, it is known as the Siamese Svengali Pack (see for example Encyclopedia of Card Tricks or Greater Magic), the way Terry uses it in combination with business cards and a paper clip makes this a very practical and innocent looking method.
