Turnover BendDee Christopher
The turnover bend is an incredibly powerful impromptu tool. This move allows you to easily work a perfect bend into a borrowed spoon or fork in plain sight.
Dee has been refining this technique for a number of years now and uses this bend at every engagement, you too will get fantastic mileage out of the bend and it's something that you can carry with you at all times.
If you ever do come across a spoon that you just can't bend, Dee has also included his Synthetic Arc suggestive spoon bend, an excerpt taken from the book Proximity Effects.

Trick TacAlan Rorrison
Three sweet effects that pack small but play big.
Trick Tac is a simple routine in nature that packs a big punch. You introduce a packet of tictacs, then you ask the spectator to pour some of the mints out into their open hand but restrict how many they take from your view. What ever they do, they MUST NOT allow you to see in their hand. The spectator keeps this in mind and keeps every single tictac they have taken in a tight fist. However, you are able to tell them EXACTLY how many they have in there down to the last mint!

Phoenix PeekScott Xavier
Arising from the ashes of many countless peeks and tears is the astonishing billet peek known as the "Phoenix". This peek was too large for just a DVD or a casual manuscript, so instead "Phoenix" has grown into this complete course on peeking, methodology, justifications, ethics, etc…
The "ash" that the "Phoenix" has risen from has got to be Scott's quest for a perfect billet peek that would replace the "classic" center tear. There have been a few peeks that have come before. But each peek has its strong and weak points. Perhaps you like this one best.

The Sentir TearDavid 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...

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...

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...

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...
