Rock On – Jon Racherbaumer – May 2010

ROCK ON#4May – 2010 Old-timers are told they have too much free time. The chide goes something like this: “After all, how long does it take to refill prescription drugs, walk your dog, locate misplaced objects, restring a yo-yo, read your local Ring Report in The Linking Ring, and reconstruct the 21-Card Trick?” They are […]


PS – Joe Stevens

And now, I introduce my good friend, and someone we are very proud to feature in the value added content area of Stevens Magic’s website – Jon Racherbaumber. Jon has a tremendous “Rock On” contribution this month in both content and variety, including a value added routine for Masuda’s WOW available at Stevens Magic. Stevens […]


Mike Rogers – Double Lift Downs Change

Columnist: Mike Rogers Double Lift-Downs Change Mike Rogers Does magic literature really need more drivel devoted to the Double Lift? Perhaps not, but here goes. What I’m about to describe has two extremely strong points in its favor. First, though there is a get-ready action this motion is done well in advance and is invisibly […]


Aldo Colombini – Twistand Shout

Columnist: Aldo Colombili Twist & Shout Card Apparitions are always welcome and seem to have a great appeal among magicians. I have something similar in my routine Nobody At Home (written elsewhere in this book) which is done on the table. The following variation is done entirely in your hands. It can be used as […]

I have changed the handling a little bit here and there, adding some subtleties. It is an almost impromptu routine requiring only a very small set up and offers […]


Aldo Colombini – Nobody At Home

Columnist: Aldo Colombili I think this is a showy routine, full of magic and I am very fond of it. It was published in Linking Ring Magazine (my third Parade, October 1994.) The approach is at least a different one, giving to the Assembly Type routine the variation of using a progressive theme. EFFECT: The […]


Aldo Colombini – Joker's Wild

Columnist: Aldo Colombili Charlie Miller said, “Whenever you are going to do a card change, consider making one of them the Joker. This makes it much easier for the spectator to follow.” This is a Wild Card effect (thanks, Peter Kane!) and I have included a variation at the end with a stunning climax. The […]


Aldo Colombini – Hof-mini-maxi

Columnist: Aldo Colombili This is not an earth-shaker but it can be a nice interlude to something heavier. I’ll explain the basic idea with small and regular cards. The basic plot belongs, I believe, to Roy Walton, the clever cardman from Glasgow, Scotland. Several other magicians have explored this effect and have come up with […]
