Electronics is a world seldom visited by most magicians or mentalists, and yet top-flight performers regularly use electronics in their acts to create miracles that fool not just audiences but also... More > others in the business. In this first part of the second volume of Electronics for Magicians I introduce several complete modules that can detect sound, vibration and human touch, as well as modules to create timed outputs and to run external equipment, including a heating element for flash product users. I also show how to combine these to create new effects. Electronics for Magicians 2 series will further spark your magical creativity in ways and directions you never thought possible.< Less

After extensive testing by experienced performers, the wait is finally over. This book represents a new departure in the field of mentalism. The techniques it contains will enable you to perform... More > impromptu, without the usual tools, techniques and compromises. You could, if you wish, perform naked to prove there’s no subterfuge. Track a spectator's thought process as she makes choices, harness psychological forces, turn misses into hits, perform book tests for complete strangers (even over the phone), but above all, replace the intuition of the psychic with solid models of the world that give hit rates far higher than the real thing can ever hope to achieve.

Newly released! Just Routine contains three strong and reassuringly mature multi-phase routines, which develop the concept of partially stacked stripper decks I first explored in the book... More > "Stripped and Stacked". “The Broken Deck” revolves around the idea of a deck being somehow faulty. No matter what the performer does, the same card keeps appearing at points in the deck designed to be as random as can be. “The Right Envelope” is about a long chain of randomness leading to a sealed prediction that has been in the spectator's possession all along. Finally, “Your Card” begins as a cheap trick but soon descends into the strange, psychological world of muscle reading - but without the risk of failure. Contains full details of all the stripper deck sleights you'll need.< Less

This book takes the 27-page priming section from the previous volume and expands it into a full second book. At its core are the 66 priming categories along with notes about their individual... More > properties. The majority are in print here for the first time. There’s also a full description of why various priming techniques work, extensive advice on their use (including how to reveal a difficult spectator’s unspoken, discarded options – in the order she has them), a section of full effects, and an extensive appendix of extra data. Also described is the powerful and flexible Pragmagram technique, used to create revolutionary effects such as the Naked Book Test. When combined with priming, this allows you to deliver seemingly genuine precognitive insights into the spectator’s thoughts before she has them. Please read the online preview and back cover for a flavour of the content of this book and what people say about it.< Less
