The Journey Continues by David Gemmell

David continues his journey with the pasteboards with a special interest in the classics of card magic. 16 tried and tested effects.

  • My Two Card Reverse: The same as Gibson's Two Card Reverse, but performed in the hands and with the deck in two portions, each selection magically reversing whilst separate.
  • Almost Open: An unusual handling for the classic Open Prediction effect.
  • Triumphant Card to Box: This is a combination of the classic triumph and card to box with two selections.
  • Miller Lite...? A take on the classic Charlie Miller effect The Dunbury Delusion.
  • Do that Again...! A super quick transposition between the four kings and a selection.
  • Open without Tears: My starting point for this handling was Ed Marlo's inspired handling from Marlo without Tears by Jon Racherbaumer. I love the boldness of Ed's approach, but wanted a cleaner ending.
  • Chasing the perfect Princess: Five random cards are removed from the deck, the spectator is asked to think of one, the magician divines it correctly.
  • The Magic Poke: The same as Lu Brent's classic U-Find-It card trick.
  • The Combo: A combination of the very best bits from Harry Lorayne and Ken Krenzel.
  • Another Poke
  • Mira-Act: The same as the infamous Miraskill but with added zing!
  • Two Impossible: Two cards are removed from the deck and placed in the top pocket, sticking out. One spectator is asked to think of a card as the deck is riffled in front of his eyes, another is asked to physically chose one. One of the prediction cards is the mate of the chosen card, the other is the thought of card!
  • Horowitz Revisited: In 1977 Lewis Ganson produced one of his Teach-In series entitled Matching the Cards for Supreme Magic. One of the contributors was Faucett Ross. The effect that follows is based on an impromptu approach to the Matching plot taken from an effect by Sam Horowitz (1927).
  • Continuing the chase for the perfect Princess: The classic Princess card trick.
  • Pre-Marital? Shades of Royal Marriages meets the Hotel trick...The patter concerns four boys and four girls and what they get up to in a hotel.
  • Hotel Madness: The classic Christ / Marlo Hotel Mystery. This transposition effect is unusual in that the exchange is different (between) amounts of cards.
