[sorry to dig up an old thread]

Just read this amazing effect for the first time. Wow! I have read thousands of magic books and magazines over the past 20 years. And this might be the strongest effect I have come across. Just the very idea of it!

So - I am firstly looking for pointers for nice headline prediction methods for use here. Since I feel there will be better methods than the one Docc Hilford provides.

Also - I think you might want the spectator to hold the box for three days. Since - it can take awhile before an death is recorded and written up in a newspaper. That is my thinking anyway.

Would love to hear from others about this wonderful effect!

Maybe I can answer my own question here. I am thinking of using this presentation with the method for PostMentalism by Alvo Stockman.

That's great! Smile

I wanted to do the original presentation but my wife ( who in these things is wiser than me) said it would be in poor taste. I didn't agree with her at all then, but I didn't do it; I think I made the right choice.

Kenton Knepper recommends using disappearing ink quilting/fabric pens (see amazon or ebay).

I haven't tried it myself yet, though.

Hi

I am resurrecting this thread again, I cannot find this effect anywhere, can anyone suggest where I can find Band of the hand or the effect itself Murder by mail?

Thanks all

RH,

It's in the New Invocation Vol. 3 (which I just sold 2 months ago). It is called "Mail Order Gris-Gris" in that tome.

I believe that it's also in Jim Magus' book, The Arcana of Bizarre Magick at Lulu. Here's the link: http://www.lulu.com/shop/jim-magus/arcan......157.html
It's a great reference book.

Here's food for thought:
Last week I was preparing to perform this at my place of work. It needs at least 2 days to actually perform it. I was about to do Part 1 ('set-up') on Thursday. On Thursday, I chickened-out because that morning the girl that I was going to do it for told me that her ex-husband (the father of her son) died. I figured it was a "sign" not to do it.

I do have a really easy method to perform it based on a Bob Cassidy idea.

Just thought I'd try to help.

Thanks Marqus,

Thanks for taking the time to respond, I am very grateful for the links, I am also going to put a call out for the original booklet in the market place.

I have read that you need to be sensitive when performing this as it is a very powerful act, thanks for sharing your experience with it.

all the best
