Metabolism in Card Magic III

This collection features a final collection of my 3 favourite card magic effects.

In this volume, you will find some challenging card effects, which require intermediate skill in sleight of hand. As before, I include a mixture of plots and I cherished these routines all over the years in my career as a close-up cardician.  

You will discover all the three effects in this collection are impromptu card magic. For over the years, I really appreciate the impact of impromptu card magic as you need not to worry when someone comes to you and say, “Please show me a card trick”. There you go; you can perform the magic straight away without the need to worry any gimmicks.

If you like card sandwich, “Instant BandIt” may be one of your favourites as this item is based on my previous release and in this version; there is no Modified Stanyon Count Switch. “Invisible Entities” is an effect where great presentation and patter are come into play. If you have what it takes, I am sure your audience will be entertained with this very simple, yet direct effect.

For the final piece, “The Paradox Spades” is one of my pet routines. I will let you to discover this on your own and this item has been in my repertoire for many years until today I am still using it in my performance.


Here's what a few of them say:

"Good stuff! Elegantly constructed routines as always."
-- Cameron Francis

"I really enjoyed the material. This series of books could be your strongest yet. I look forward to a 4th in the series!"
-- Peter Duffie


This e-book is not suitable for beginners. While all the moves are explained clearly but some previous card handling experience is preferable.

My Confession...

Ever since I got my first job this year, writing card magic eBook seems very rare to me, let alone practising card magic at home. I hope with the upcoming public holidays, I would be able to get back on track again with a deck of playing cards in my hand.

For those of you who have been following up my blog closely, you may aware that one of my biggest projects would be publishing a hardback card magic book. I really appreciate those fans out there that signed up for my mailing lists as they have shown their interests as well as their supports in my project. However, since I could not cope up with the costs of production, I have to put the project on hold until the time is right for me to publish the book. I sincerely hope that my first hardback card magic book would be available on sales next year.

Just to make an announcement that I will contribute a new card magic effect of mine to one of my friends in card magic soon. I am still in the process of deciding whether to contribute one or two unpublished card effects and the eBook is expected to be available this year. 

I will keep this thread posted once I finalised everything.

Thanks.
