I have decided not to include any filler-material. Personally, I hate reading a manuscript in which I'm only able to actually use a small portion of the material. A different approach has been taken with 'Impromptu Mastery'. All the effects are perform able with any deck and no setup-time. Also, the effects are those effects I personally use. Every day. This is workers - not fillers! I have fooled laymen and magicians alike with the clever construction of these effects. All are easy to do yet deeply magical. All four effects are described in utmost detail, with a heavy weight on presentation, as has become standard in all my releases. I will not spoil the reading by giving away the names of the effects nor their content. However, here is a small sneak-peek from the beginning of the presentation of two of the effects (keep in mind that this has not gone through editing yet so there might be gramma-errors): [quote] 1st Effect: Borrow a regular deck of cards and give it a few overhand shuffles. Then fan it from one hand to the other so the faces are towards yourself. Look with interest upon them. If you don't know the name of your spectator, ask him/her. In case of this presentation let's assume she is called Mary. “Mary, I don't know if you are aware of it, but when you play around with cards as much as I do you get a close bond to many of them. For instance this one.” [Place the first card from the face of the deck face-up on the table and name it.] “I remember how I always used to play cards with my grandmother. For some reason I always won when I got that card. So many memories...” ... 2nd Effect: Borrow a regular deck of cards, place it face down on the table and seat two spectators opposite you. If you don't know their names, ask them. In case of this presentation let's assume they are called Mary and Kelly. You begin by instructing the spectators: “Mary and Kelly, what you are about to witness is a thought-experiment. In the early sixtieth a psychologist named Arnold Weber managed to show experimental proof of telepathy. He found that, under the right conditions, electrons travel between minds in a wave-like pattern.” [Show this by making waves in the air with your right hand.] “He used some special cards known as ESP cards, but as we haven't got any of those available right here, your playing cards should work just fine."[/quote] The effects are not everything in 'Impromptu Mastery'. Next week we will take a closer look at the rest of the manuscript. Until then, Enjoy! :) Regards, Martin Vetter [/quote]
