The Amazing Fartzini by Shane Robinson
publisher: Ingrid Fartz and her eleven-year-old son Eric fled their
hometown of Sheffield to start a new life in Ramsgate, Kent, to escape
from an abusive relationship with Eric’s Father. Eric was a quiet and
painfully shy boy lacking in confidence, who was bullied by two horrible
boys at his new school. He didn’t have any friends either and was
feeling pretty low, until one day, a chance meeting with an old magician
at a magic shop stall at the local Christmas Fair convinced him to take
up magic, which changed his life
Throughout the story, Eric learns and performs amazing magic tricks,
which are also taught at the back of the book! The story culminates in
Eric entering ‘St. Bartholomew’s Got Talent’, but will he get the chance
to take part?
This is an entertaining and thought-provoking story about Eric’s
struggle at ‘Big School’, filled with inspiration and advice, not only
about performing magic but also on how to become more self-confident and
a high achiever!
Although it is a fictional story it could just as easily have been
written about many young people in the real world today, struggling with
confidence issues. Maybe that is you? If it is, then this book will
definitely be very helpful to you as well as being an interesting and
enjoyable read, plus you will learn some really cool magic tricks too!
It is a modern-day fairytale about triumph over adversity, written by a
professional magician with young people in mind! Three Books Combined
Into One! An Entertaining and Thought Provoking Novel, Filled With
Inspiration! An Instructional Magic Book, Teaching Amazing Easy-to-do
Magic Tricks! And a Motivational, Confidence Boosting Self-Help Book For

show several jumbo size laminated cards (approx. A6); each with a
different ESP type symbol printed upon them. The cards are mixed and
laid out face up on the table. A spectator is allowed to indicate which
cards should be eliminated one by one, until only one symbol is left.
Please note there is no equivoque used in the selection, but a very
clever idea by Roy Baker.
The spectators themselves turn over the chosen card to discover a large
red tick sign on its back representing your prediction is correct. But
the spectators are not convinced for they have not seen the backs of the
other cards, after all, they could each have a red tick mark. But when
they turn over the other cards each one has a bold letter on it –
correctly spelling out the name of the selected symbol!
• A stunning climax!
• Easy to do and totally baffling
• Perform it close-up, parlour or on television
• Everything can be left for examination
• Practical Mentalism at its best!
Comes complete with the Jumbo A6 sized laminated cards & instructions.

MENTALISM - THE FUN WAY!
is a fresh, fun new take on Al Koran's amazing Medallion Trick.
After telling the audience how good you are at fun-fair games, you
explain that your local carnival has actually retired your "pick-a-duck"
To demonstrate, you have the audience decide on a 3-digit number in the
fairest possible way.
Once the number has been agreed upon, a small paper bag (that's been in
full view the entire performance) is opened. Inside is found your
"retired" duck. When your on-stage helper reads the number inscribed on
the bottom of the duck, it is seen to be a perfect match!
Simple, easy, direct and a lot of fun to perform! Wise Quack comes with
all of the necessary custom props and teaching DVD!

A Lifetime In Magic - Devin Knight
130 pages, photo illustrated, soft back
Publications is delighted to announce the publication of the first
volume of a trilogy of books featuring the amazing mentalism and magic
of internationally renowned performer Devin Knight.
Volume 1, features full details of 9 routines from Devin's personal
repertoire (see details below). Devin's ideas are always unbelievably
well thought out, with every possibility analysed and the best and most
convincing methods selected. He leaves nothing to chance, and creates
plots that are amazingly varied, and which produce effects that are
inexplicable and real reputation makers. This trilogy will offer you the
strongest mentalism and magic achieved with practical, commercial
methods - if you haven't seen this material before you are going to be
stunned! Here is the contents of Volume 1.
Improved Tri-Epic Deluxe - this is a clever three or even four way
newspaper prediction effect reminiscent of David Copperfield's Graffiti
Wall, but more portable and totally suitable for a one man act.
Psychic Money Sense - designed for an intimate close up show,
this experiment apparently shows that a spectator has an excellent
psychic sense as he achieves an impossible outcome using three pay
envelopes and some ordinary coins.
First Date Revelation - romantic mentalism! The performer
correctly divines the name of a spectator's first date, and even manages
to locate which one of six billets has the person's name written on it.
Puzzle Mania - a brilliant routine which is perfect for
children's shows. Both the magician, and then the birthday child, manage
to correctly guess which pieces have been removed from a completed tray
Far Sight - a total reputation making fooler. Ten cards are dealt
face up on a table and the mentalist, standing on the far side of the
room and with his back turned, correctly reveals the name of a card
genuinely freely selected by a spectator. Brilliant, unfathomable
Aqua Coin Flight - a practical parlour routine. Three different
value marked coins are dropped by a spectator into a tall thin glass of
water and one is then selected. Without sleights or difficult moves, the
coin vanishes from the glass and ends up inside a sealed envelope.
Tarot Sight - as near to real mind reading as you can get! Five
cards are dealt out face up from a shuffled tarot pack. Four helpers
each simply think of any of the cards, and the performer manages to
correctly identify which card each spectator is thinking about.
Test Conditions Ring Penetration - not everything Devin does has
a mentalism flavour, and here he explains a deviously clever way to get
a borrowed ring tied onto a length of rope that is already tied to both
the performer's wrists.
Blindsight DIY - a major feature routine in which the performer
manages to apparently prove that a spectator may have 'blindsight' - in
other words that he can successfully identify colours that he can't even
see. Brilliant method concept that is straightforward to do.

PropDog Card on Ceiling
Card on Ceiling trick has been around since the early part of the
century and was originally performed with tacks but over the last few
decades, magicians have been using wax as an alternative.
PropDog came up with what we think is a great improvement to the wax and
that is to colour it to make it much more invisible depending on hour
you use it.
The PropDog Card on Ceiling Wax has been specially formulated in
conjunction with a dedicated wax manufacturing company to be of the
perfect consistency for the trick. It's not so sticky that it leaves a
sticky residue on your fingers, but sticks perfectly to ceilings and
walls and means you can use smaller amounts, giving you more
performances per tub. All colours have been professionally matched and
the colourant is wax based, so will not stain the ceiling. Of course the
chances of actually flashing the wax is very little and it's never been
a requirement before, but as this wax is cheaper than other versions,
then using it can only make your act better.
For those who like to hide their wax in plain sight, we have:
Sharpie Grey - For those who hide the wax on their Sharpie, a small
amount on the bottom of your Sharpie is almost imperceivable. Just steal
the wax off as you give the Sharpie to the spectator to sign their card.
Sharpie Black - For those who hide it on the lid of their Sharpie
or on their belt. Just steal it off the lid or your belt as you give out
For those who hide the wax out of sight, we have:
Bicycle Blue and Red - Professionally colour matched to Bicycle Card
Red Backs. Once loaded on the card, if you were to accidentally flash
the top of the cards whilst performing the trick, it is far more
unlikely that the spectator will notice the wax.
Natural - for those who are not really bothered and just like to
use the standard colour.
The wax comes in three tin sizes: 15g, 30g and 50g. As a guide, the
standard Michael Ammar tub contains around 35g.
A 50g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 300
A 30g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 180
A 15g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 90
Please note that these tins only contain Card on Ceiling wax and they do
not come with a routine or instructions on how to perform the effect.

advantage of being significantly quieter in use, opening up a whole new world of
Each PK Blista (2 x supplied)

(and easy to do effects):
Coin in Bottle - Borrowed coin penetrates through the base of a soda
Coin Thru Hand - A marked coin vanishes from the back of your hand,
only to reappear within your clenched fist along with some previously

Clone Coin by Mark Lee
is a super clean 'Special' coin that can be shown clearly as a regular
coin. There are two effects included, but once you see the ingenuity of
the coin, there are many more possibilities. Effect one, is a simple
coins across in your hands effect. You start off by displaying two coins
openly, there is obviously nothing else in your hands. You place the two
coins, one at a time, and very cleanly, from your right hand to the
left. You now pick the two coins up with your right hand, and display
them. They are then thrown one at a time into your left hand (you can
even hear them clinking), and you grip them, making a fist with both
hands. You make a magical gesture, and although your hands never come
anywhere near each other, you can now show that you have one coin in
each hand! Effect two, is a coin matrix effect. Using four coins, which
are shown and counted, and two regular playing cards, borrowed if you
wish. The coins are spread out in to a square formation. Two of the
coins are now covered by the playing cards. When one is lifted, a coin
has gone, and when the other card is lifted there are now two coins
under it. This is repeated, until all the coins are now under one card!
You can now show you have only two cards and four coins! These are
available in the 10p coin version as standard, but you can order any
coin you require. - Standard 10p coin plus instructions - £25.00 + £2.95
UK postage or £4.95 overseas.
Gay Ljungberg: This is my best trick! I invented it in 1984 and has sold
many, many hundreds over the years, it is always a hit at magic
conventions. I have liking for doing "ungimmicked versions" of tricks,
that are normally performed using gimmicks. This one of those.
PROFESSORS NIGHTMARE IN COLOR
You show thre unequal ropes, one is red, one is blue and one is yellow,
counting them from hand to hand. With one simple tug, you make the ropes
Two spectators each choose a rope and you take the remaining one and you
all tie a knot in the rope making a circle, a ring of rope. You gather
the three rope rings in your and try to pull them a part, but they are
linked to each other! The ropes are real, the knots are real and
everything can be examined.
No magnets, no extra pieces of rope, NO GIMMICKS! Only knowledge is
used. You receive three ropes in different colours, an illustrated
instruction PLUS a dvd showing the effect and in detail, step by step,
teaching you how to setup and perform the effect.
Bonus effect: ORDER OF YOUR THOUGHT
The spectator may tie the ropes in any order he likes, formig a long
rope. You have a red handkerchief visible in your breast pocket. You
pull out the handkerchief and there are two more handkerchiefs, all
three in the same colours as the ropes, and tied to each other in the
same order as the ropes. For this bonus effect you can use your own
silks (not included).
You can perform one, two or all three effects in a sequence. Easy to
learn! (Gay Ljungberg)
Exclusive. Welcome to a new world of visual coin magic that will leave
your audiences devastated and gasping for more! Imagine being able to
take a 10p coin, throw it to a spectator and when they catch it they
discover it has turned into a 2p. Imagine handing the spectator a 10p
and a 2p, they then give you the 2p and you visibly change it into a
10p! They open their hand to find they are holding the 2p! With
Revolution you can perform all these miracles and more!!
Impossible Card Magic
Card Magic is a perfect title for this DVD. Every effect on this tape
is impossible to figure out when you first see it - you will be fooled!
The skill level ranges from intermediate to advanced but the effort
involved in learning these routines will surely put you ahead of the
crowd. All the routines are show-stoppers and all the methods are new
and original. This is card magic that will fool and entertain. Includes
Raise Rise - One of Ray's signature pieces, an ambitious card sequence
where a signed selection is placed near the bottom of the deck, sticking
out for half its length. Visually, the card jumps up to the middle of
the deck, then near the top, then becomes the top card! The card magic
contained on this DVD is not easy but each effect is well worth the
practice. Highly Recommended!
