Paul Voodini

Paul Voodini is a full time working mentalist from England, specialising in the areas of séance, tarot card reading and the paranormal. He works almost exclusively amongst "shut eye" circles, and the information he gleams for this environment he condenses into his books to pass on to the mentalist community.

Paul was originally very much a shut eye himself, and learned to read the tarot cards and host séances way back in the 1980’s. Paul’s books offer practical, down to earth advice, and all the routines and performance techniques covered in his work is derived directly from the real world. Most nights of the week find Paul hosting séances or reading tarot cards in stately homes, haunted houses, and derelict castles throughout the UK. The knowledge and experience gained from working in these areas is distilled into his books, making Paul’s books hugely valuable tools for the mentalist, the psychic, and the bizarre performer.

Paul is a member of Psycrets, the British Society of Mystery Entertainers. One day he hopes to invent a time machine that will enable him to travel back in time and marry the Fox Sisters (both of them).

Seance for the Undead: a Duet of Unusual Magicks by Paul Voodini

The Chimney Sweep's Victorian Oracle by Paul Voodini

In Victorian London, the chimney sweep was a man who lived half way between night & day, between light & dark. A man who breathed smoke and handled hot coals. A man who, it was believed, talked to demons and angels as he made his way upwards through the chimney from the hearth to the stars. A man who cheated Death on a daily basis. To shake hands with a sweep was to bring yourself good luck, and if a woman should kiss a sweep then folklore dictated that she would be pregnant within the year, and the child would have the ’gift’ of clairvoyance. And for those souls brave enough to cross his...
