JERRY ANDRUSBizarre ShuffleA very strange shuffling procedure that is both mystifying and very funny. In Jerrys hands this was liquid and smooth.IAN BAXTERCrackerJack StackA multi-phase die-stacking routine with a mentalism twist and a striking vanish of FIVE dice!SIXTEN BEMEClean GuillotineA method for chopping off the tip of the finger that will fool anyone, magicians included.STEVE DUSHECKQuandaryIs it a silver coin or a copper coin? Neither, its pure gold! A real workers routine that Steve has been using for decades!MIKE GALLOOriginal, No Gaff, Reverse MatrixMike Gallos now famous version of the Reverse Matrix. Inspired by Gertners classic, Mike eliminated any extras. Seriously, JUST 4 coins, and four cards are used. This is a lesson in direct and powerful coin work. RON HADLEYFlipping TriumphRon cleverly applies a Looy Simonoff move to the Triumph Plot resulting in a stunningly tight routine. Neat and sweet.Matchbox LoadA beautiful approach to secretly loading a coin (or folded card) into a matchbox. This is straight from Rons pro performances from the mid 1980s.Two Quick RoutinesTwo approaches allowing you to put Rons wonderful loading technique to use.Spread-action PalmRon applies some Marlo-esque thought to Harry Loraynes take on Le Pauls Spread Pass.DAVID HARKEYHeat VisionIn 1987 David was a new kid on the block and I was thrilled to be able to publish his revolutionary material in both New Directions, and later, Simplicities. Here is his amazing Heat Vision Routine! HARRY LORAYNESimple Lie DetectorA special treat here. I was to contributed to Harrys magazine and books over the years, and to have him return the favor with a contribution to my little magazine was a thrill indeed. This is a simple, but effective, Lie Detector Routine. Presented, of course, in Harrys own words. ED MARLOOlrams HallucinationThe origin of the effect per se, can be found in The Jinx No 1, October 1934. It was an EDDIE CLEVER concept. The method to be described here eliminates the Second Deal and the Palm. A modified gimmick is used, and the deck is encased by elastic bands. Also, the three selected cards are produced from different pockets. Five NON-GAFFED handlings then follow. The Upward KickEd takes on Ben�s notoriously tricky SuperFlip flourish and makes it a whole lot easier. Not to stop there, Ed then teaches 3 effects with the move!Flexible Bottom LiftA flexible multiple lift technique that works off the BOTTOM of the deck.DANIEL McCARTHYSpectator Cuts The AcesBased on Marlos A Problem Posed (36th method, New Tops, March 1962) this lovely handling convincingly allows four GENUINE cuts.Dr. BILL NAGLERUltimate AcesBill describes an easy and effective Ace Cutting Routine with a surprise finish. The method is novel�it uses a Devano Deck.JON RACHERBAUMERShaded Cards To PocketsA novel look at this plot taking cues from Duffie and Marlo. Two cards repeatedly fly to two different pockets.JAY SANKEYBack Spin SpecialThis created a massive amount of interest when originally published in 1986. A coin is back-spun across the table and it magically cuts the deck locating a previous selection.JAY SANKEY/BEN HARRISDe-CreaseThis startling Torn & Restored Card handling grew out of a week-long session at a magic convention in Nashville. Highly visual, crease free, and with a great sound.JAY SANKEYGeller CardThe precursor to Bens gaffed card version (1988). This non-gimmicked card bending moment is completely hands free, and requires careful timing more than any great skill.JAY SANKEY/RICHARD SANDERSOne For Fifty OneAn ENTIRE DECK and a single card magically transpose under the most-visually compelling conditions. Mind-boggling, and a sign of what was to come from the young Sankey/Sanders team.
