magicmenufinalfour Magic Menu - Final Four [Book]
$29.95
After ten years and 60 issues, the Magic Menu ceased being “the international journal for professional restaurant and bar magicians” and became—for one brief, shining volume—“the professional journal for working close-up magicians.”

Two hard-bound compendiums were issued that contained the initial 60 issues. It was announced in Issue 61 of the newly-expanded format that the magazine would only be available henceforth as individual issues.

Then one day Jim Sisti announced "Last Call" and closed the Magic Menu kitchen forever.

It just shows you should never say never!

Herein you’ll find the eleventh and final volume of the Magic Menu. All four greatly-expanded issues published with this new mission statement are here, representing co-editors Jim Sisti and Andrew Pinard's effort to expand the perceived boundaries of professional close-up magic beyond restaurants and bars. You’ll find vital information about working in venues as varied as trade shows and after-grad parties in addition to the great, commercial close-up magic that the Magic Menu has always been noted for.

This book closes the story of one of magic’s most original publications. The original issues sold for more than $60.00 at magic shops. Now you can get this valuable information for 1/2 the cover price in this 192 page perfect-bound 6" x 9" book with two color cover.

fart-toon.jpg MAJOKE - The Incoherent Magazine For Magicians
$9.95
MAJOKE - The Incoherent Magazine For Magicians is produced by Evil Five Productions in Las Vegas, Nevada. Majoke is the most talked about magic product in years. It is a parody which makes fun of one of the leading magic magazines (you’ll probably know which one). Majoke spoofs it's look, style, advertisers, columnists and the magicians it reports on. According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary (©1997) the definition of “parody”is “a humourous or satirical imitation.” Hysterical! Hilarious! Side-splitting! The Saturday Night Live on the magic world! A small sample is illustrated in the picture on the left of this description. You can purchase your own copy and see for yourself! Surely to become a collectible! The perfect gift for your favorite magician!!! Oh by the way we do sell Fart-Toon for $20.00 - guess the magazine 'parody' is 'reality' in some cases...

profmagicforamateurssm.jpg Professional Magic For Amateurs [Walter B. Gibson]
$9.95
This book is for the amateur magician who wants to learn (and start performing) well-known card tricks that professionals use. Fifty easy, yet effective tricks are presented, offering a well-rounded repertoire on which the beginner can draw while developing further interests and skills.

"To explain how magic is done is one thing," Mr. Gibson says in his introduction, "to tell how to do it quite another." In this volume you will be taken through every stage of each trick-an overview, how the tricks appear to the audience, the mechanism behind the trick and finally the presentation details that allow you to perform the trick in a completely professional manner. By carefully following the few simple yet essential tips, the tricks will soon be yours.

Emphasis is on tricks that can be performed informally with a small group of friends. There are card tricks of both the set-up and impromptu kind, there are tricks with string, handkerchiefs, tumblers and other simple apparatus. And, there are examples of mental magic where the purpose is "to deceive the mind rather than the eye." A final section on well-known stage illusions shows how the same performance principles are carried to magic on a higher level. With this book the beginner will be able to perform professional tricks within hours, while even the more advanced magician will find new tricks and new ways of doing old ones. The author draws upon a lifetime in professional magic for his tricks. Not only is Mr. Gibson well-known as one of the best writers about magic, he was also long associated with Houdini, the Thurstons, and other great magicians of the past! Paperbound, 223 5 3/8" by 8 1/2" pages, 63 illustrations.

secretlifeofhoudinilarge.jpg Secret Life of Houdini [Limited Edition - Signed by Authors William Kalush & Larry Sloman]
$37.95
The Secret Life Of Houdini is an intereting new book available in an exclusive Hardcover Limited Edition that is signed by both Authors - William Kalush and Larry Sloman.

Handcuff King. Escape Artist. International Superstar. Since his death eighty years ago, Harry Houdini's life has been chronicled in books, in film, and on television. Now, in this groundbreaking biography, renowned magic expert William Kalush and best-selling writer Larry Sloman team up to find the man behind the myth. Drawing from millions of pages of research, they describe in vivid detail the passions that drove Houdini to perform ever-more-dangerous feats, his secret life as a spy, and a pernicious plot to subvert his legacy.

After years of struggling on the dime museum circuit, Harry Houdini got a break that put him on the front page of a Chicago newspaper. He never looked back. Soon Houdini was performing for royalty, commanding vast sums, and exploring the new power of Hollywood to expand on his legend.

At a time when spy agencies frequently co-opted amateurs, Houdini went to London and developed a relationship with a man who would run MI-5. For the next several years, the world's most famous magician traveled to Germany and Russia and routinely reported his findings.

After World War I was successfully concluded, Houdini embarked on a battle of his own. He created a group of disguised field operatives to infiltrate the seamy world of fake spirit mediums. In doing so, Houdini triggered the wrath of fanatical Spiritualists, led by the esteemed British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Death threats became an everyday occurrence, but the group would pose an even greater danger to Houdini's legacy.

Rigorously researched, and as exciting as a good thriller, The Secret Life of Houdini traces the arc of the master magician's life from desperate poverty to worldwide legend, initiating the reader along the way into the arcane world of professional magic. In this remarkable book, Kalush and Sloman decode a life based on deception, providing an intimate and riveting portrayal of Houdini, the man and the legend.

Hardbound and Signed by Authors William Kalush and Larry Sloman. 592 Pages.

Note: In our opinion, although some of the information in this book is hard to believe, it should be read by every serious Houdini Collector.

Please Note: This is the book that caused the recent publicity regarding the Exhumation of Harry Houdini. Let His Legends Live, and Let Him Rest in Peace...

secretsofhoudinism.jpg Secrets of Houdini [J.C. Cannell]
$14.95
World-famous illusionist, master deluder, showman; Harry Houdini (alias of Ehrich Weiss) is one of the most legendary figures of the modern stage, and probably the most controversial and misunderstood magician of all times! So fantastic were his tricks that many thought him to be supernatural, a mystic and an amazing spiritualist. Exposing his closely kept professional secrets, and revealing in general terms the whole art of stage magic, this book is now considered a classic study of Houdini's strange deceptions.

J.C. Cannell, professional magician, friend and colleague of Houdini in The Magician's Club, was the first to explain rationally how Houdini achieved his tricks. These include the famous challenges to death, escapes from bank vaults and from a Russian prison vanlined with zinc, walking through brick walls, escapes from crates under waters, disappearing ladies, women floating in mid-air, vanishing elephants, ghostly manifestations, seances, card tricks, rope tricks, mind reading, spirit messages and miracles. All of these and much more discussed in clear, simple language and for better understanding, the author has included numerous line drawing of Houdini's ingenious escape devices, with diagrams of the more complicated tricks. Twenty-four new photographs have been added to the twenty-three in the original edition, illustrating scenes from the magician's life as well as his performances!

When this book was originally published shortly after Houdini's death in 1926, it caused such a controversy that many people simply refused to believe the author. Yet, if you are interested in magic, the stage or the fabulous life of Harry Houdini, you are certain to find this book a fascinating experience. Perhaps the only way to really understand Houdin is is to tread this book and judge for yourself. Don't be surprised if the author keeps you glued to each page as you follow step-by-step some of the most incredible stunts of the century! Paperbound, 279 pages 5 3/8" X 8 1/2", 51 line drawings! Another great Harry Houdini paperback. By J.C. Cannell - 98 Illustrations.
