You will win money using these cards and one day you will also get shot.... More > You have been warned.< Less

“A bargain at twice the price” - Chung Ling Soo.
“Once you know how, you can then... More > call yourself a real magician” - Johann Hofzinser.

“They’ll never let him back in the Magic Castle after this one” - Charles J. Carter< Less
“Perfect code for those of us with short term memory loss“ - Ed Mellon.
“Is it possible for a trick to be too easy?” - J. G. Reed
“Now I have an excuse for going... More > to the bar.” - Eddie Joseph.
Code and Flu Season is the kind of easy to learn two person code system that you can go out and try tonight if you wanted to. You ask your mark for the name of a famous person, or just a friend’s name, or even have them select a card in their mind. You then call over your partner who has been out of ear-shot, and after placing her in a quick trance, she reveals the celb., the friend or the card. It’s not meant for stage work, but this is a real worker in the bars.
Norris used it for years in bar gigs in Boston. You also get the bar bet That’s A Corker, where you seem to defy physics and as an added bonus, the essay The Name Game. All for less than the price of a cup of coffee!< Less
Chair predictions are a staple of stage mentalism, but far too often they are over complicated with trick envelopes, equivoques or very powerful magnets. Imagine a 100% accurate way of know which... More > chair a spectator will choose before they sit down! No stooges (sorry Criss Angel), no wax, no ‘oh-so-cleaver’ word play. Direct mentalist at it’s best and that’s just phase one.
Phase two is The What The Heck Deck, an invisible deck for people who can’t afford those expensive store bought Invisible Decks. There is no deck at all. The spectator merely deals the truly invisible cards in their mind and you are able to divine the final card they hold in their hand. (Available in both Invisible Bicycle and Tally Ho Viper)
Also includes the free bonus Canadian Baking (A Two-Person Code For The Fried), Voo Do You Love Two,How To Cut An Orange With A Cigarette and the essay Casey At The Bat.
All this for four bucks?< Less
Just what is Rock and Roll Mentalism? Well, Lance Norris has been doing it for over 25 years and when asked, SIX DEGREES OF CLAPTON is the trick he does for them.
THE EFFECT: A spectator is asked... More > to think of any classic rock band in the world. They are then told to start singing one of the band’s songs in their mind. The mentalist, without any of the standard pumping shenanigans, starts with Eric Clapton and draws a very straight line to the band the spectator is merely thinking of within six steps or less (much like the popular Six Degree of Kevin Bacon Game). All are amazed when the mentalist names the band and then starts singing the same song the spectator was singing in their head!
There are no other bonus tricks or bar bets in this ebook, because the notes for this musical mental miracle are almost 100 pages long!. But don’t worry, you could do this trick out of the box (as they say). The notes are what turn this from an effect to a work of art.< Less
Norris has been doing radio for over 25 years. In that time he’s put together volumes of tricks and sage advice about being a mentalist on the radio. These first couple of effect are the first... More > part of the series.
AND YOU ARE?: You make a prediction. The host and a couple of callers give you random numbers. You add a couple numbers of your own and have the host total them up. You then have the host open your prediction and reveal… the name of the host was merely thinking of in his mind (which is my favorite way to think).
Ok, why all the math. The host looks on the back of the prediction and there is a decoder. He decodes the name and sees that it breaks is the sum of the numbers called in by the random listeners. Now that’s freaky.
ALL YOU NEED IS MORE LUCK: In studio or on the phone, you divine the name of the Beatle the host was merely thinking of. And of course, Norris throws in a couple of bonus Bar Bets too.< Less
Imagine: you approach a stranger on a train. Ask them what they are reading. Have them ‘randomly’ select a word and still you are able to name the word they merely have in their mind with... More > no pumping, fishing, fisting or peeks. Too good to be true? I think not. It’s all in Lance Norris’ HARDCOVER.
Perfect for walk around/street magic. What’s more, this miracle can be performed anywhere in the world or Canada with just a simple conversion. What’s the average cost of a book test these days? $150? $200? $400! And half the time you end up with some phony baloney paperback that no one has ever seen at any bookstore or newsstand.
With HARDCOVER you use the hard covered best seller that your spectator happens to be reading at that moment. The book stays in their hands at all times! Again, no peeks, no pumping, no magnets, no loops, no actual minds were read during this trick, but it will sure look like it. What are you waiting for?< Less
