'. . . as when iron is drawn to a magnet, camphor is sucked into hot air, crystal lights up in the Sun, sulfur and a volatile liquid are kindled by flame, an empty eggshell filled with dew is raised towards the Sun . . .' An odd feature of the Bible is that it is full of stories featuring forms of magic and possession - from Joseph battling with Pharaoh's wizards to the supernatural actions of Jesus and his disciples. As, over the following centuries, the Christian church attempted to stamp out 'deviant' practices, there was a persistent interest in magic that drew strength from this Biblical validation. A strange blend of mumbo-jumbo, fraud and deeply serious study, magic was central to the European Renaissance, fascinating many of its greatest figures. Brian Copenhaver's wonderful anthology will be welcomed by everyone from those with the most casual interest in the magical tradition to anyone drawn to the Renaissance and the tangled, arcane roots of the scientific tradition.

Magic is everywhere, from the big spectacle celebrity of David Copperfield and Siegfried and Roy to the quirky Penn and Teller to the spooky David Blaine and Criss Angel to the endless material on YouTube. But until now, learning it has never been easy—that's all about to change with Magic, a book that does for close-up magic what How to Grill does for barbecue. Written by charismatic young magician Joshua Jay, Magic combines expertise, photographs, and step-by-step directions showing how to perform 100 tricks. Joshua Jay took home the top prize at the World Magic Seminar (the Olympics of magic) when he was just 16 years old. Ten years later, he continues to perform magic, write about magic, eat, sleep, and breathe magic. Here, he brings all his passion and knowledge to teaching magic. Each trick is broken down into the Effect, the Secret, the Set-up, and, most important, the Performance, with lessons on what to say, how to direct the audience's attention, where to keep your hands, and so on. (In other words, how to be smart about the things your audience is surprisingly clueless about.) Here are the Ten Greatest Card Tricks; tricks to dazzle a dinner date; tricks to perform for the boss (poke a hole through his shirt, then magically mend it); tricks especially for kids; and even tricks for an audience in another state—with "Australian Self-Help," you can find a participant's chosen card over the phone. It's the Aha! book for a subject whose time has come.

Holmes' ability to solve crimes is much like that of the magician in his ability to work magic. The magic is rather simple, but the effects are astounding. Now you can combine the thrill and excitement of magic with the mystery and suspense of a spine tingling Sherlock Holmes novel. The stories of Sherlock Holmes have inspired this collection of magical effects designed to baffle your friends, entertain your audience, and stimulate their imaginations. You will be able to thrill and delight your audiences in a way unlike other magicians. The effects in this book are all connected to the legend of Sherlock Holmes and his uncanny ability to solve what seemed to be the most difficult cases. Unlike Holmes, you will be able to solve the crimes by the use of magic. Most of the tricks use simple props you may have around the house, although you may wish to use props that have certain "Holmes Flair" to give it more of a magical feeling. If you enjoy magic, you'll find some interesting twists on some old tricks as well as a few new ideas. All of the tricks are simple enough for an amateur, yet clever enough for the most experienced magician.
