Peter Duffie

(April 15, 1957 - )

Peter first became fascinated by magic at the age of eight after his uncle showed him some magic tricks using cards, coins, matches and chalk. But it was the cards that held his deepest interest, and so began a learning process that continues to the present day.

Peter’s chief mentor was, and still is, Roy Walton. Others whom he met and had a profound influence on his path include, Gordon Bruce, Andy Galloway, Tommy Frederick, Fred Robinson, Dave Campbell, Eric Mason, Ken Brooke, Peter Kane, Alex Elmsley, Pat Page, Phil Goldstein, Gene Maze, Richard Kaufman and Dai Vernon.

A past winner of the Scottish Conjuror’s Association Close-up competition and the British Ring Zina Bennett Cup, Peter considers competitions "good fun but meaningless."

His early association with Jerry Sadowitz led to a series of books, beginning with 17916 Alternative Card Magic (1982). It started with two young men - a manuscript - and no publisher. Peter is grateful that Martin Breese saw in the material what others didn't, and took the chance. All five Duffie/Sadowitz books have recently been reprinted by Martin Breese in a single collection titled Cardzones - a handsome cloth-bound tome. While the material dates back to the 1980's, Peter is proud of this collection.

The 1990's saw a new direction with the release of Imagine, a self-produced manuscript of near-self-working card tricks. This was followed by Obsession, Ulterior Motifs, and so it went on, and indeed, Peter continues to release new booklets to this day.

In the mid-90's, a chance encounter with Richard Kaufman at a Blackpool convention led to a publishing contract being signed. Duffie's Card Compulsions was published in 1995 by Kaufman and Greenberg. This was followed by Five Time Five (Scotland) and Effortless Card Magic.

Peter is currently in partnership with the clever Californian magician Robin Robertson. Together they have created over 200 new effects and recently released Card Conspiracy Vols. 1 and 2. A third book is planned.

Coauthors: Robin Robertson, Jerry Sadowitz, Cameron Francis, Aldo Colombini

Area 52 by Peter Duffie

Fourteen wonderful card routines by one of Scottland's card experts, Peter Duffie. One routine, 'Blendid', particularly caught my eye. The effect is as follows. You give two spectators each a packet of four cards and you have a similar packet. Each packet contains two black cards and two red cards. The idea is simple - you place one card face down on the table, and both spectators place one of their cards on top. The idea is get three cards all of the same color. The only problem is that neither of you are allowed to look at the faces of your cards. However, a 100-percent color match is guaranteed....

It's an Ace. You - or a spectator - give the deck a fair cut to bury the face up Ace in the middle. Upon spreading the deck all four Aces are now face up together in the middle - but there's one face down card caught in the middle. This proves to be the awkward selection.

Effortless Card Magic by Peter Duffie

Effortless is probably just as apropriate or misleading as self-working. It doesn't mean that these tricks don't require any effort on your side. You have to read the descriptions, remember the sequence of actions and perform the act - entertain, which in my book is neither self-working nor effortless. But what these terms try to convey is that you will not need to master difficult moves or finger breaking sleights to perform these effects. And they are very good effects. Often an 'effortless' trick can be performed to greater effect because the performer can pay more attention to audience managment,...

The prediction is left face down on the table. A spectator now selects a card from the deck (say the JS), after which the card is lost back into the deck.
