Tricks for the Few by Lance Charles

Here's a terrific book containing ten tricks, using cards, a magic wand, rope, and other items associated with the magic arts. Most of the effects require no special apparatus. What little is needed can easily be constructed. We think modern performers will really enjoy the card rise, where the action takes place with a borrowed deck! Also of interest will be "Through the Five-Spot," which is an impossible solid-through-solid effect where a five of spades visibly melts through the center of the magician's wand.

We've especially had fun performing the ball bearing mental test, which is a great ice breaker at parties or as a pre-show experiment to identify sympathetic subjects for a later ESP effect. We use ping-pong balls, but pencils, face-down playing cards, brass figurines or idols, sponsor's business cards, or any four identical objects may also be used.

Here's what the experts say about this great book:
"... ten excellent tricks, illustrated with photographs. The book will be found very helpful for the more advanced magician who wants to add something new to his act." - Sphinx magazine review

"'Tricks for the Few' is fresh in outlook and free from padding. A chosen card rises from the center of the pack by purely manipulative means. An imp really appears from a brass bottle and goes back into it. Well done. A wand that permits a card to pass through it may savor of the decapitation trick of Hero of Alexandria. There is also a hoop-levitation move which may prove of much value. Very good. - Magic Wand magazine review
