Genii Cover

I have been hearing rumors that Penn & Teller had something to do with the Genii Cover and the double issue I'd like to know if there is there any truth to it.

Re: The Real Paul Fox Story

The Paul Fox Beer Trick is a magnificent effect. It was my closing effect all the years I worked comedy clubs and it is still a staple in my act. I have performed the trick over 3,500 times. I know this number is correct because I made and used that many fakes. I bought my first two sets from Jeff B...

The best single book on magic

I'm interested in what people think is the best single book on magic. My choice is clear. At one time I did EVERY effect in the book. Now I do all but four. The book includes close-up, stand-up and stage effects. Here's what's in this slim volume. Vernon's Card thru Hank Hermann's Card on Ceiling Le...

Re: Heinstein Shuffle

The Heinstein shuffle is a good false shuffle and well worth learning. Having already mastered the Henry Hay full deck false shuffle from the Amateur Magicians Handbook, I would only learn another if I thought it was superior to the one I already do. But I find problems with the Heinstein Shuffle on...

Re: Packets Tricks

Just come up with a logical reason for using a packet of cards. This is easy if you are doing Three Card Monte. I keep a few packet tricks in my wallet and bring them out when needed (usually after I've gone through my A, B, C & D material). Here are a few introductory lines "Have you ever ...

Re: A Question to the card guys

Sometimes I have the client supply the cards. I never know what I will get. I have tricks with new cards, cheap cards, used cards. I take whatever is given to me and make the most of it. If I get a good new deck I do a few effects that keep the deck in order then stack it using Darwin's Si Stibbins ...
