Ronald Wood

Ronnie started magic at a very early age after his Grandad taught him a trick about attaching a half full matchbox to his wrist with an elastic band. His teenage years were filled with visits to his local library hiring and rehiring The Complete Illustrated Book Of Close Up Magic.

When, in his twenties, and after a chance meeting with Steven Hamilton in Roy Walton's shop in Glasgow, Ronnie left magic tricks and focused on cards.

Putting Walter Gibson's book aside and taking up The Royal Road To Card Magic, he became obsessed with sleight of hand card work. With Steve Hamilton and Roy Walton recommending what books to study it wasn't long before he was working in Glasgow restaurants and pubs performing close up magic. As an avid fan of Dai Vernon's early work, this influenced Ronnie to start taking notes of his effects. Taking notes on what worked. Taking notes on what natural movements could be replacing certain sleights.

Recently Ronnie decided to start transferring those notes into book form. You WILL be hearing more from him.

Cards and Strangers by Ronald WoodCards and Strangers contains six effects that will make your audience sit up, take notice, and want more.

These effects aren't just magical. They are entertaining! And isn't that what we get paid for?

Every effect in this ebook has been set on rules! They must be entertaining, have not too many sleights (but NOT self working) and can be performed in the hands. All too often there isn't space on the table to perform or sometimes no table. As American magician Paul Lelekis states in the Forward.

"The number of tricks out there that can be performed completely in the hands can "fit on the head of...
