Got Paul Gordon's Card Magic Companion a month ago and love it. Some real good stuff love this kind of card magic (Have most of Harry Lorayne's books and DVD's love his magic waiting for The Classic Collection 2.)

What other book by Gordon would you recommend.

I think Emulsion Cards - Easy Oil & Water for Standing Close-up looks interesting.
If you have let us know what yo think...

Paul Gordon and Tom Craven just released a new book titled "The Keeper Card Book". Upon reading the introduction, history smacked me in the face. By seeing the cover, I didn’t associate the word “keeper” in the title with the card sleight “The Keeper”, a brainchild of John Quine. For those of you that remember this sleight, you’ll know that Harry Lorayne touched on it (Apocalypse), only now to be known as “My Second Keeper”, which is what’s used it this book.
Within these 80 pages you’ll find “The Keeper” material from both “The Card Magic of John Quine” and “B.S. tinations”, both which were written by Tom Craven. The remainder of this book contains “The Keeper” material from “Precursor”, “The Minotaur”, and some new work on the principle. I highly recommend this book.

Look into Duffie's England UP Close, Paul Gordon has 9 or 10 effects, all fun to use and some are very interesting from methodological point of view, if you're into card principles ( Cato, Mindreader's dream .. etc)

Dear Leo,

Thanks for the order. As promised, Emulsion Cards is FREE. Will post Monday! I hope you enjoy them. If you do, let me know! If not....????

I don't post here, much, anymore because of the antagonists. They seem too angry and hateful. It saddens me, too. Your KIND words are, however, appreciated. And your post (above) is excellent.

I've now been into magic for nigh on 40 years. I've been entertaining laymen for 28 years and writing books for 19 years. The hundreds of kind words and comments more than make up for the aggro! But, having said that, life is too short - and I'm too busy - to hang around negative people. So, that's why I'm not often on Magic Café. I also hate to see my friend Harry Lorayne being attacked the way he sometimes is. He bites back, which is his (New York) way. As for me, I really can't be bothered! These guys are like schoolyard bullies. But worse than schoolyard bullies, they hide behind anonymous 'names' and computer screens. How sad!

Once again, thank you!

All the best, Paul Gordon

P.S to others: - Watch my promo video and you'll see the only similarity between me and Harry Lorayne is pace and enthusiasm. Yes, Harry is a good friend and my main inspiration. (I first corresponded with him in 1979!) I know that and he knows that. We've known each other for a LONG time. If you are going to learn and be inspired by/from anyone - learn from the best there is! Harry IS the BEST! Also, see my website for reviews of my magic by TOP names in magic. http://www.paulgordon.net/acatalog

I have had the greatest of sessions with Paul at various Curry houses and coffee shops near his home. He is a true gent, and it is a pleasure to know him and share his company. One of the easiest things to do is to sit at home and throw abuse at someone fom the safety of their keyboard - this behaviour is unwanted and I find it juvenille.
Paul is both generous with his time and knowledge, and has pointed me down a path or two in our sessions. Thanks mate, look forward to our next meet
Message: Posted by: PaulGordon (Jul 13, 2008 06:38AM)
Thanks Mark, Mick and Malc! Hey, sounds like a 60's tribute band!

Those who know me know that I'm really passionate about card magic, and yes - according to my gorgeous wife - I like to think I'm a nice guy! I love writing, creating and performing. I also like sharing and love meeting other magi at conventions. The fraternity is made up of, mostly, nice guys and gals. But, sadly there are a few whiners. But, because they are so cowardly and insecure - nobody ever gets to meet them in person. Thank heavens for that!

Best, Paul Gordon
Message: Posted by: PaulGordon (Jul 13, 2008 06:51AM)
By the way, to those who asked, and if you are interested, my photos of my lecture and visit to Fechter's Finger Flicking Frolics (4 F's) are now available here: http://www.paulgordon.net/ffff2008.htm

Also, if you heard about the work Tom Craven & I were doing (I/we got good reviews) at 4 F's, yes, IT WAS the Keeper Card Stuff from our new project! If you've seen Tom Craven work, this is the magic he'll have most likely fooled you with!

All the very best,

Paul Gordon

I also have to say that Paul is a great guy. I am happy and proud to count his "Corner of Picadilly" to one of my favourite packet tricks that I show (and sell) on any possible occasion.

If anybody asks me what Corner of Picadilly is: it is "The Gypsy Curse" on Speed. If you love story telling then Gypsy Curse is great, but if you want to do a fast and astonishing card trick that is perfect for table hopping: I highly recommend Corner of Picadilly.

Paul is a very creative guy and face it: he is one of the last to write books and not publish DVDs (in most cases).
Message: Posted by: PaulGordon (Jul 13, 2008 07:39AM)
Dear Christian,

Thank you, too!

Yes, all hail books! (And, Corner Of Piccadilly.) I'm still waving the flag for books rather than Dvd's. In fact, who else publishes books (as opposed to booklets/spiral bound stuff)? Let's see:

1) Goodliffe Publications (erractically)
2) L&L
3) Kaufman & Co
4) Harry Lorayne
5) Paul Gordon (Natzler Enterprises)
6) H&R
7) Hermetic Press
8) Trapdoor Pubs (Steve Beam)
9) Simon Aronson
10) A1 MagicalMedia

Anyone else?

So Paul I'm off to your web page to order the new one "Cool Card Stuff"

Anyone who wants some great walk around or impromptu card trick should check out Paul's work. Also anyone new to magic looking for some intermediate tricks that have that special WOW to them should take a look.

I'm not a expert or I'm I very good but a lot of these are within my abilities.

Paul has some great material. He's also a great guy. He was kind enough, in fact, to show a group of us one of his finest routines (unpublished) in the bar in the Ruskin; it's a very thoughtful piece, the patter revolving around various stages in life and the effect these stages has on the person in question. Extremely tasteful and clever. Perhaps with some encouragement, Paul would consider releasing this routine to the masses?

One minute it's Protean card magic, the next it's Cause and Effect. There are just so many great routines to choose from.

By the way, I've just seen a copy of Cause and Effect go for £127 on ebay! Surely a reflection of the value of Paul's work. I'm guessing C&E is now out of print to go for such a high price?

I saw it a couple of weeks ago so the listing may have been removed. I'll keep an eye out for another as I'm always on ebay.

Psychotronic Rides Once More is a fantastic one deck version of the Darwin Ortiz "The Psychotronic Card" Some wonderful subtilties are employed in this version.
There is a chapter devoted to the In-jog shuffle {Paul has a very disarming false shuffle}
Twin Peeks is incredible,I bet this fries them.
Strolers delight is another highlight.

Difficult to choose - perhaps 'Psychotronic Card' from Nocturnal Creations, as it inspired me to come up with a variation, this was the first time I'd come up with something and its a great feeling.
Then perhaps 'The Gordon Diary Trick' - from the same volume.

Paul when will this book be out?

What a Christmas list Harry Lorayne's The Classic Collection Volume 2 and Paul Gordon's a Unplanned Card Book. Throw in Allan Ackerman's New Erdnase DVDs
Yes there is a Santa Claus.

By end of October; I'll let you know...

(I can truly say that I think that TUCB is one of my best. I'm so pleased with the contents and my writing...and it's going to be a good-looking book; like its author! :)

I have seen some of Paul's clips on youtube and it's exactly type of card magic I like to do. Unfortunately I don't have any of his material yet but would like to start buying (have a strong feeling I am not gonna be disappointed). I am only undecided with what to start... Any suggestions? Maybe by Paul himself? Thanks.

Got mine today so far only skimmed through it.See a lot of quick simple card magic here the kind that's right for strolling magicians.
Tried the Four Ace Puzzler a trick where you add three cards to each ace and each packet is cut into the deck and the four Aces are found reversed in the deck quite visible and direct.
Also tried Merely Thought Of Card Miracle where spectator chooses one card of eight and he mixes the cards and you find it after several faros.The effect doesn't seem new but I like the idea of spectator just thinking of a card and shuffling it into the other cards.

I met paul today at the postsmouth convention and he was a really nice guy and demo'd a few effects,
1st he showed me powerhouse from card collective which I loved, I purchased card collective and his dvd live, he then showed us an ace finding trick which was very clever with 2 chosen cards as a final kicker re-appearing. at the time it was only me and a friend watching, later on I saw him start performing powerhouse for a big group, this time I watched the audience rather than the trick and the way paul held them thru-out and it was a masterclass,
when I got home I sought out powerhouse and sat down, broke out a new deck and have now got the handling working, suprisingly easy although ive made 1 tiny change to his handling and I'm looking forward to showing this routine and seeing the reactions I get.
big thanks to paul for making my day with some quality work and also keeping me sane as the guy on the stall opposite was trying to flog me a fake lettuce saying its perfect for close up!!!!!! a fake lettuce, it did look good but what you gonna do with it when your a card worker!

I have been trying to get "Corner of Piccadilly" for months. It's sold out everywhere. Apparently, the only place I can find it is on his DVD Krazy Card Stuff. It's my understanding that it doesn't use any gaffed cards. I ordered the DVD directly from Paul. I'm looking forward to getting it. It's not a book, but it's the only way I can find "COP".

I just got the DVD Krazy Card Stuff, and the explanation for Corner of Piccadilly is tremendous! I just love this routine. I think the best part is it uses regular ungaffed cards! I just happen to have four 1864 decks of cards that should give me a lifetime supply of cards.

BTW, I learned the coolest envelope effect from Shawn Farquhar recently when he visited the Los Angeles area. I'm going to make an old looking envelope per Shawns instruction and use it with these cards. With Shawn's envelope (BTW, I don't know if he invented the principle, but I learned it through him in a casual conversation), You pull out the envelope, show it empty inside and out, then open it again and the cards are in the envelope.
