The Magic of Haskell by Bob Haskell

Bob Haskell's genius for brilliant story plots and well-thought-out mechanics made him a master of cabaret and platform magic. The inventor of such masterpieces as the Split Deck and the X-Salted Shaker digs deep into his performing repertoire to give you 17 of his favorites. Ranging from effects with cards, rope, a beautifully animated silk mystery, and a pair of mysteries using the "tap-it" principle, there's something within these pages for almost any necromancer worth his (or her) salt.

Here's magic for the performer who's up on basic card sleights and/or who can handle an effect using memorized patter (such as "The Dalton Boys"), with which you'll delight even the most steadfast of audiences. Long out of print, this revised edition features two new chapters, plus important edits and updates.
