I do not have any of his work but I will definitely check those that you have mentioned in the near future. There are certainly a lot of great effects for me to check out. New effects come pouring in when I haven got the time and resources to explore the old ones.

The negative side of following magic Café is that it ensures that my bank account will not increase.

Devin is gifted with a mental genius that has resulted in an internal explosion of innovative thinking. As a result, it's not just his products that amaze. It's also his creative thoughts captured and documented on paper. One example of this is Silent Running from Ben Harris. Devin has a section, along with subtleties, that just absolutely is indicative of a higher-order level of thinking.

I always perform Blindsight. I also enjoy using Lexicon Phenomena.

"Devin Knight's products are like magic ""crack""!"

Man, I know I don't need his latest(s), but for some reason I can't help buying them (all?). I think his Blindsight, Outtasight and Word Sight are my favorites.

Can we actually credit him with The Glass Box Prediction? I'm no expert, but wasn't that in an Al Mann publication decades earlier?

Eshla,

...I think so. Devin is quite honest about the fact that he has streamlined and generally improved many of the Al Mann routines and ideas. Devin assimilates and then cranks up the amperage. Word Sight is one such occurance. Basically this is the second generation of "Lexicon Phenomena" adaptations by Devin, which was orginally devised by Al Mann. I don't think anyone will question the work Devin has done with that. Maybe the Glass Box is the same?

The original Al Mann Glass Box was similar to my Ultimate Headline Prediction, which Al and I both noted the similarities.

Al was my mentor and one of my best friends. He always marveled at how I would take his ideas and expand on them so far that the original was hardly recognizable.

The glass box is the same way, the original idea was explained in my Glass Box revisited, but the future evolutions of the original idea have evolved to the point that almost no one does the original version anymore.

Just read the Glass Box Revisited. Wow! This little book is amazing. I appreciated the little details and subtleties that are provided to us in order to perform the effects the best way possible.

Thanks for sharing this Mr. Knight, well done!

Best

This is not an effect per se, but a false overhand running cut, a force, it's called The Running Cut Force, I love it because it's simple, direct, and I use it in most of my card routines, in fact I'm so used to doing this I sometimes do it when I actually want to cut the cards, it's crazy. I suggest it in my "And There is Silence" manuscript, a psychic playing card routine.

I own a lot of his stuff, but Four Told is cool and The Incredible Feats of Jason Michaels has some interesting stuff in it, a couple of which I use.
