Novel Magic(Note: I am affiliated with Magic World Publishers; however, the following reviews were not written by me.)

Some comments from the magic press regarding this book:

"Twenty-seven effects for professional and amateur magicians. There is a cigar band stunt that can be used in bars or parlors which is exceptionally good. Under the heading 'Matches of Jinx', Lu Brent has about as cute an effect as any amateur would want. For the stage and night club magician, he has a non-mechanical 'Glass Through Hat' which he terms 'My Pet Trick'. You will like it." (Walter B. Gibson in "Conjuror's")

"First class material. Mr. Brent uses a number of the tricks described in his own act. 'Novel Magic' is smart magic." (J. G. Thompson, Jr. in "The Linking Ring")

"Lu Brent has put his best in this book and you must have it for your library." (Joe Berg in "The Linking Ring")

"Some of the cleverest and most entertaining effects seen in a long time." (Mitch Kanter in "Genii")

"Crammed full of clever club effects and routines. If you do club or nite club work, you must have this book." (Elray in "The Linking Ring")

Turning the TarotShort and sweet. This is something that I'll have in my back pocket just in case I'm called upon to show something when I'm otherwise unprepared. Priced right, too. Thank you, Dave! It's appreciated.

Secrets of Mental MagicPartial review from Burling Hull in "The G-D D--n Truth About Magic" Vol. 2:


"At last here is a really top value and PRACTICAL series of effects and routines that work by Dr. Thornton (medical doctor) who plainly PERFORMS mentalism feats. The best publication of practical effects in five years in my judgment."

Sensational EffectsPartial review by John Braun

Sensational Effects (Nelson)

"Bob Nelson knows how to impress the spectators with the fact that mental telepathy is a fact, and he explains exactly how to do it. In these effects he shows you how to MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE exactly what you wish them to believe, and the impact of the tests and experiments is terrific.

"Invaluable to all who do, or aspire to do, this type of work, for it is a digest of the knowledge gathered over a period of many years by a specialist in this field. Recommended."

See full review in the March 1958 "Linking Ring".
