Spotlight Q&A- a very candid interview with Iain Dunford. Everything from character mindset to “getting under the knickers of it all” is discussed. Script & Method- The mentalist uses his telepathic ability to lift impressions from the imagination of a male participant and then uses the help of a female’s intuition to bring the demonstration to a climax. The Adventures of Johnny the Mentalist- A retired and struggling mentalist encounters a young man intrigued to learn about the craft. A close-up piece is demonstrated and explained. Inside a London Pub- a close-up routine that is constructed based on three things submitted by a fellow practitioner. This is a way of thinking and designing your own personal sets for meaningful performances. Backstage Pass- a fascinating conversation with full-time performer Anthony Heads. A very honest and open discussion that offers highs and lows of performing for a living.

Sep 7, 2016This puts itself out as a magazine, but actually it's a book. No advertising, no wasted space. Great for mentalism knowledge. I like that it's not all just tricks, but the essays and interviews are great and helpful to understand more about mentalism and how/why to perform. This puts a lot of complex ideas in easy language and more than anything else it give me lots of inspiration for coming up with my own ideas. Great!
Apr 26, 2016So I have just finished reading the first issue of Mystic Descendant and here are my thoughts. It is a breathe of fresh air! It is a magazine (booklet) that is so unlike anything else out there at the moment that it was a joy to read and experience for the first time. I loved everything about it, from the conversational style of the interviews to the little artworks throughout which really brought it alive. Far too many magazines out there are 'stuffy' or take themselves too seriously, this felt like the physical embodiment of a few mates getting together over a pint or two and discussing ideas and what they love most about the craft. It's not a big magazine in terms of pages, but I'm in the quality over quantity camp. I am not one to pull any punches and I give my honest feedback so that's exactly what I will do... I'm going to be slightly controversial here (maybe) and say right now that I preferred all the interviews, stories and advice over the actual 'routines'. Please do not get... More > me wrong, as they were wonderful and I'm sure would play brilliantly. They could have been released separately for the same price of the whole magazine (or more) and I would of felt I got my monies worth. However, for me personally, I just loved all the other bits and pieces throughout this publication. I much prefer to read about the who, why, what, where and when than the 'how'. Luckily for me, this magazine appears to be fulfilling this desire of mine. So in conclusion, it was a fantastic and FUN read, which is something of a rarity in most publications. I will 100% be picking up the next issue and I'm already looking forward to it.< Less
