Singled out by the legendary Paul Harris for inclusion on his True Astonishment DVD set, SMOKE RINGS is a truly incredible impromptu miracle!
If I only had one playing card with which to do magic, this is the routine that I'd do, bar none. - David Forrest (from the introduction of this manuscript)
SMOKE RINGS is a completely impromptu, 100% examinable linking card effect which requires no preparation whatsoever. Only one card is used, nothing else. No additional gimmcks are required, your hands are clearly empty. This is anywhere, anytime magic with nothing more than a single playing card.
Any card is borrowed or freely chosen by a spectator and signed. With both hands unmistakably empty, two impromptu rings are torn from the card. Without any overt actions or suspicious cover, the two rings are magically linked together, one ring hanging from the other. Such is their linked condition that one ring must actually be torn in order to free the other - one ring is unmistakably displayed as being torn.To finish, the torn ring is completely restored and everything is handed out for examination. There is nothing to find. The rings may be kept by the spectator as a souvenir. Believe it!
After many years of secrecy, SMOKE RINGS can now be yours!

Soft Shoe Monte uses just three jumbo cards (with the requisite Bicycle backs, thank you very much) to pull the proverbial wool over the eyes of your spectators. Through three phases, though it seems as if everything has been explained clearly and that the rules couldn't be any easier to follow, the money card is never where they expect it. Even when you use one hand and two cards, the spectators are completely flummoxed.
This is a trick that plays huge, packs small and packs a punch.
Masterfully deceptive, ingeniously clever and devilishly entertaining, Jim Steinmeyer's Soft Shoe Monte isn't just cheating, it's a complete stand-up routine that makes dishonesty a sure thing.
The magician has the spectator sign their initials on the dime and he is seen to place it into his pocket. The penny is placed into the spectators hand. When the magician taps the penny with the Sharpie, it changes places with the dime and now the signed dime is in the spectators hand, and the penny is in the magicians pocket.
Comes complete with special coin, pen and instructions with performance tips.
Two jokers are placed in the spectator's hand and two jokers are kept in the magician's hand. The magician touches his jokers to the spectator's and claims that they have changed places. "Okay, you are probably wondering why this trick was rated a ten?" The spectator and the magician turn their cards over at the same time revealing that all the cards have changed into four tens!
What People Are Saying: "Ten is so clean, it's like washing your hands with anti-bacterial gel." - David Acer
"When I was a kid, each night, I had strange dreams where strange numbers appeared floating in front of me", says the magician. "And I don't know why, I wrote them all inside this little game I used to play." The magician brings out a small yellow origami pyramid, and places his fingers around it. He then shows all the inner sides of the pyramid with different numbers on it. "I noticed something strange about these numbers! Look, I'm going to open it two times, and I will ask you to remember just one of the numbers that catches your attention." The performer proceeds, opening the pyramid two times, one in each direction. The spectator concentrates, and without any hesitation, he can tell which number the spectator was thinking about! The effect can then be repeated with another number.
Thirsty Straw, fills a Shot Glass with the Liquid of your choice. Display a single Straw. Tear off the Wrapper. Put the Straw into the Glass. Magically the glass fills with liquid.
After the glass is full, you can use the straw to have a drink. Works Great for Close Up and is Visual enough for the Stage. (shot glass not supplied)
Comes with the Any Liquid Gimmick, Gimmick Wrapped Straw and the Easy Instructions, to use any straw.
A spectator mentally selects a card, but before the spectator makes his selection, the magician sets a prediction card face down on the table.
Once the spectator is satisfied with his selection the magician turns his prediction over to reveal a perfect match!
Brent has been using this routine in his close-up act for years. It is being released to the magic world for the first time now!

Translocation is a serious routine meant for serious magicians who are willing to practice. You will require a close-up mat, four coins (such as half dollars), and an expanded shell.
A pair of cards is removed from the deck, let's say the Jokers for example. A card is freely selected and signed across the face before being lost back into the deck. The two Jokers are shown front and back, there are only two cards and they do not go near the deck. With a little flick, a face down card appears in between them. This card is removed and shown to be the signed selection. It really is as straight forward as that!
Comes complete with hand made Bicycle gimmick.
These Canes are made of plastic, and do not have the same spring tension as Steel Canes, and are not suitable for transformation to flowers etc. But if your requirement is for just a Vanishing Cane, you can get this model for less than a third of the cost of the other steel models.
Do the trick over and over again with a blister appearing on s different finger every time. The logical patter and preselection means you no longer have to use fire or cigarettes. Don't worry about drawing your hand on the paper! Everything is self contained. The blister work happens right in front of them yet is absolutely invisible! (No more going to your pockets)
You get the laminated Voodoo card printed in full color and detailed instructions.
An effect you can perform ANYWHERE & ANYTIME and will amaze your audience.
Display an ordinary box of matches, you make the lid sleeve VANISH! You sense something strange in your pocket! Yes the vanish lid sleeve is in your pocket and the matcbox has shrunk to minature! Perfect miniature Match Box with Mini matches!
A spectator selects a card from the deck and the magician displays a small polished aluminum box. He takes off the lid and removes a small piece of clear "photographic" paper, explaining that the paper is heat sensitive.
The paper is placed back inside the box and the spectator holds the box and his chosen card between his palms. After a few moments the spectator opens his hands and may remove the lid from the box himself. Inside, he finds the paper developed with an x-ray image of both of his hands and a picture of his selected card!
Comes complete with box, clear paper and two x-ray images (different cards).
Then ask anyone to call a number. You pull the necklace apart showing a long string of beads and give it to the spectator. Then ask him to pull on the ends of the necklace and the string breaks at the exact chosen number. You can repeat the effect with different numbers.
The magician takes one of the 52 cards from the deck and openly slides it under the clear cellophane of the card case to protect it from outside, clothing optional forces. The two naked angels on the card are clearly visible as the spectator covers them with her warm naked hand. She waits a few seconds....then with her own fingers, slowly slides the card out from under the cellophane. One of the angles is GONE!.....leaving just a weird blank space... BOTH the angels are now joyously riding together, side by side, on the other end of the card!
If you're feeling especially generous you can even let the spectator keep the naked little darlings...along with your name and phone number.
