House of Cards by Chuck Romano is a unique and beautiful 320 page hardcover book with a gold-stamped cover. This book chronicles the fascinating life of Paul Rosini and explains much of the exceptional magic he performed during his career.
Illustrated with rare photographs and beautiful illustrations, this entertaining book relates Rosini's rise to fame in American nightclubs in the 1930's until his untimely death in 1948.
Rosini was a master magician and had no equal! His brilliant magic coupled with his sparkling sense of humor, and compelling personality, made him one of conjuring's highest paid entertainers!
In addition to Rosini's life story, detailed explanations for over 100 effects of Rosini's and his contemporaries are included!
A SPECIAL BONUS: Also included is a complete reprint of the hard-to-find book, Paul Rosini's Magical Gems by Rufus Steele (and Robert Parrish).
Dean Dill`s Blizzard has fooled most of the top minds in magic. The effect sounds too incredible to be true: A spectator freely names any card, and a deck which has been in full view is spread to reveal that every card is blank...except for the spectator`s named card!
No rough and smooth, no long and short, no double sided cards Everything may be immediately examined.
"Edward Esbat was the head of the family and a strict disciplinarian. The children didn't dare misbehave when visiting his house. (In fact, the children didn't dare visit his house at all!)"
These high-quality pieces are a truly unique form of art, yet still affordable for the average "home haunter." Use them to spice up a Halloween Party, a Haunted House maze, or your own year-round ghostly gallery! No batteries, electricity, or special lighting required! Just put the portrait in a frame and the ghostly entities will do all the work!
Simple to use, yet extremely effective, these morphing images are designed to transform when you change your position. When your unsuspecting guests walk past them they will see these seemingly normal "relatives" change into hideously frightening creatures or macabre apparitions!

Martin A. Nash, who was one the most popular performers to appear at the Magic Castle's Close-Up showroom, is also considered one of the most entertaining magicians with a deck of cards. But entertainment is only half the story. Martin also created some great magic and techniques.
The two techniques he was most proud of were his Infinity Control and his Tabled Faro Shuffle. He often gave private lessons teaching these techniques and swore his students to secrecy. After keeping the true workings of the techniques and routines secret for many years he agreed to release them on two video tapes that were high priced at the time. Now both videos are combined into one DVD that can truly enhance your card magic.
Infinity Control: This is a very easy method of controlling cards that can be used with a borrowed deck. In addition to the techniques and variations, Martin also performs and teaches the following routines using the Infinity Control: One Card Pullout, Spectator Cuts To Card, Trapped, Infinity Force, and Backfire.
Tabled Faro Shuffle: This is a relatively easy method that simulates a riffle shuffle. In addition to the techniques and variations, Martin also performs and teaches the following routines using it: Celestial Aces, Marked Aces, World's Fastest Runup, and The Sting.
Bonus Routines: In addition to the above priceless secrets Martin also teaches his, Estimation Aces, New Deck Routine Sequence, and One-Handed Master Ace Cutting.
Additional techniques taught within routines include: Fan Prediction #2, Soft Shuffle, False Cut, Nash Multiple Shift, Up And Down Shuffle, Delayed-Action Center Deal, and much more.

On September 22, 2011, Bob Cassidy held his sixth teleseminar in this incredibly popular series of mentalism discussions. This teleseminar explores one of the most important topics in mentalism and one that has never been discussed in depth before. You'll learn exactly what the "logical disconnect" is, why it's important for mentalists to be constantly aware of this, and plenty of examples to illustrate how to use it in your own routines as well as when to use it.
Here's what Bob says about it:
"Many years ago my good friend, the late Bob Haines, coined the term 'logical disconnect' to define a strategy to thwart a logically minded observer from 'reverse engineering' the actual methods used to accomplish particular effects."
In this day of overexposure and easy access to 'secrets' on the Internet, the Logical Disconnect has taken on an added importance. For it is one of the very few things that will even work against those who may be familiar with the concept.
Over the years I have referred to the concept many times but its meaning and application still seems to be widely understood. In addition to my own applications, the book includes some excellent contributions by some of mentalism's top workers."
In the e-book, you'll learn a classic of stage mentalism involving numbers and how two key strategies will keep the audience from thinking it's a mathematical effect that they can easily duplicate at home!
Another pair of strategies will make a popular PK effect using a ballpoint pen into a jaw-dropping miracle!
Explore the logical disconnects in Cassidy's classic serial number routine using canisters!
The correct timing in performing peeks also is a very strong logical disconnect and is discussed in detail.
Plus there are exercises to help you in understanding and recognizing logical disconnects, as well as how to add it to your own routines.
All this and much more is discussed in the 37 page e-book/workbook that you'll get immediately to study. Even more material will be discussed in the upcoming teleseminar!
Don't miss out on what will be one of the most talked about events of the year and a discussion of one of the most important topics in mentalism.
Michael Weber, author of LIFE SAVERS and renowned mystery arts performer, will once again be the moderator for this special event.
Included in this package is the two-hours long MP3 recording of the teleseminar, the 37-page PDF workbook, and the 12 pages of post notes which will have additional information and answer additional questions not covered in the teleseminar.
In the vast literature of magic, a surprisingly small portion of it deals specifically with stand-up magic; that is, magic that is performed on a stage or platform and suitable for entertaining and engaging audiences large and small. Thus, finding quality material has always been a challenge for performers who endeavor to present magic in front of a group of spectators. For the first time, the very best stand-up effects, performed and explained by artists who have fine-tuned these pieces to reputation-makers, have been collected in one place. These are tricks that are suitable for platform, stage and parlor presentations. So, whether you perform in living rooms, banquet rooms or on the world's largest stages, you'll find an amazing assortment of performance-ready masterpieces here just waiting to be the centerpiece of your own show. These performers are among the best of the best and on this unprecedented collection, they're providing you with their signature routines. Everything you need to be a successful performer is right here; you just need to add some practice and a stage.
On this volume, Tommy Wonder demonstrates why it's sometimes very fortunate to be a magician while Karrell Fox shows you two methods for book tests that will thrill the hearts of magicians and mentalists everywhere. Speaking of mentalism, Banachek offers his wonderful take on the classic Add A Number routine while Dan Harlan takes some jumbo playing cards and explains why he had to do a lot of chores while growing up. Ted Lesley performs and explains an easy handling of the classic Six Card Repeat while Al Schneider demonstrates a logical version of the Multiplying Balls. Finally, J. J. Sanvert adds a truly incredible ending to the already-strong effect of linking three borrowed finger rings as the rings vanish and are found in impossible locations.

Departure was first released in 2008 and has been performed thousands of times. A lot of time was put into redesigning this new and improved version. All new features were added AND made it as tough as a battleship. Plus! All this was achieved while keeping the price the same ;-)
Here's a comprehensive list of the new features and improvements:
Included in the online instructions, Derek Roberts teaches his Shirt Vanish - a way to cleverly vanish any ring right under spectators' noses. You'll also learn a stunning ring and key transpo, which climaxes with their ring appearing your keychain.
The magician shows four Eisenhower dollar coins in his hand, then takes one of the coins and brings his pocket, when you reopen your hand has 4 coins again.
Returns to remove a coin from his hand and takes her to his pocket but when you open your hand has 4 coins. Repeat this 2 times and always has 4 coins.
Finally it shows the 4 coins in his hand and takes a pocket to carry it when you open your hand and the other coins have disappeared.
