I own "The Card Magic of Ed Marlo" and I enjoyed it tremendously and still do. Mind you his methods aren't for beginners but they can still learn if they are willing to practice...a basic knowledge of card sleights won't hurt either. Marlo was a stickler for technique and was "one of a kind". There's so much material & it's hard to choose...any hoo it would take a lifetime to assimilate all of his material! Smile

Revolutionary Card Technique and the Magazines (6 of them) offer loads of material.

My website has a MARLO link where you can see the books by Marlo, plus other books that contain Marlo material, plus magazines he contributed too.

Much of Marlo's stuff is for the advanced or serious card magic enthusiast. Though many of his material has been published into widely distributed hardbacks, like Revolutionary Card Technique and M.I.N.T., it's his "private" manuscripts that are a treasure to own. Overall, Marlo clearly deserves shelf space on any card magic library.

I'll second that emotion.

Marlo's voluminous work contains material that can amaze and delight laypersons and there's a fair bit that could very well smoke your fellow magicians (if you go for that sort of thing). The best part is that a great deal of it seems little known.

Some samples: In Marlo in Spades is a Triumph effect that stands fairly well on its own, yet was specifically designed to fry magicians who know Vernon's method.

In Marlo Without Tears is a lovely effect titled "No-Saliva Vanish" that could look positively eerie.

From Early Marlo comes "No Palm Aces to Pocket", "The Perfect Stop Trick", and "Double Trouble". These last two are fiendish.

The "Side Steal" section of Revolutionary Card Technique alone is a great lesson in card control. There's some other neat stuff in the book, too. Smile

What can I say? Marlo pretty much has it all.
There are many tricks, and many effects, but rarely a Grand Effect. There are many entertainers, but few real magicians. Many technicians, but few artists who use their art to explore their vision. - Derren Brown, Absolute Magic

There's even a VHS/DVD of Marlo put out by My Magic I believe.

Marlo is definitely worth owning.

I have:
The Card Magic of Ed Marlo
Revolutionary Card Technique
Marlo Without Tears
M.I.N.T. 2
Marlo in the Linking Ring

I would recommend any one of those. They are all great.

One of Marlo's most approchable, if not the most approchable books is his
The Cardician available still from Magic, Inc. in Chicago. Just killer material. His Simple Shift I have used for years fooling virtually any magician not familiar with the technique. I believe that it is still around $12.00, but not positive. Best,
