Written by John Luka.
This effort was kicked off in his "Thoughts On..." column which ran
in The New Tops magazine from October 1993 to December 1994. John's column
was for the majority of magicians who tend to do a lot of pocket and parlor
tricks for small audiences and few shows. He knew that most magic shows are
informal, sometimes spontaneous events, typically being a performance of a few
tricks at a party of social or business get togethers. So, he chose material
for the ninety-plus percent of magicians who are not professionals. Some of
the great magic in L.I.N.T. includes John Luka's absolutely astonishing
Chromo Balls (a big hit at Fechter's), a pure sleight of hand approach to Daley's
Plus material from his Tops magazine columns covering several variations
and simplified handlings for concepts such as Vernon's Simple Arithmetic, the
Zarrow Shuffle, the Turnover Pass, Brother Hamman's Homing Card, and four instructive
exercises in combining various card assembly sequences into cohesive procedures.
Featured are several fascinating creations from Ron Bauer (author of the exciting
new Ron Bauer Private Studies series of monographs), including the trick that
forever changed John Luka's life, The Magic Coin.
You'll also find Ron Bauer's Lie Detector, the original and unsurpassed method
and presentation of what has become a classic of card magic (but it's not about
computerizing a deck or detecting lies.), and two never before published miracles,
Second Sight, a comedy triple prediction effect, and Devilish Trickery, a crystal
clear, technically subtle handling and presentation for the Marlo/D'Amico Devilish
Miracle. Ron Bauer also renders intelligible Key to the Draw, the first trick
ever published by lifelong friends Jack McMillen and Charlie Miller. Milt Kort,
the man who invented the combo coin box routines, reveals his remarkable Okito
Less Coin Box and Paul Chosse provides the details of his devious debugging
of Erdnase's Diagonal Palm Shift. John Luka also solicited and includes several
choice items from Paul Cummins, Ron Aldrich, John Morgan, Bill Kalush, Michael
Ammar, Chris Carter and Eric DeCamps.
