Jim Steinmeyer’s sequel to Impuzzibilities contains ten new “interactive” effects, including the amazing “King’s Coronation,” an interactive effect suitable for television, video or radio. One effect uses no apparatus, just the spectators’ hands! “The Five Fiends Blackjack” deal is a completely self-working Blackjack effect; the “Thirteen Card Dilemma” is a surprising routine in which cards simply can’t be counted—they multiply and then disappear. The booklet is a neat companion to the original Impuzzibilities, and the routines are secret weapons for magicians, designed for those occasions when nothing else will quite do the trick! 29 pages, 5 1/2 by 8 1/2, soft cover with foil cover.
The third book in the series is also the largest, with thirteen new effects. All are strangely self-working and interactive. "The Magician Who Fools Himself" is a hands-off Card Across routine that Jim has featured in lectures. "The Password Fallacy" is an amazing, long-distance location of a card in the spectator's packet, a worthy successor to the famous "Nine Card Problem." "Enigmatic Tarot" is a fortune telling effect suitable for telephone or video performances. Over 40 pages, with foil stamped cover and matching format to the previous two books. As always the tricks are not only amazing but surprising. First, you'll fool yourself, and then your spectators.
The fourth book in the series, features more astonishing self-working effects. The contents include 8 Cards Espial, in which you name the card selected randomly from a packet of eight, Automatic Ace Triumph, a Triumph routine conducted through the telephone or video, Moraskill, a prediction added to Miraskill, and Flummoxed, an amazing three-part card routine. Other routines include Jim's Tuzo Sensu Mystery, Dining Out, a self-working menu prediction, and Cue Card Mystery, a prediction using a handful of cue cards. Also a series of innovative equivoque variation, for playing card selections. The format matches the previous books. 48 pages, total.
The fifth book in the series offers twelve new effects of self-working (or nearly self-working) magic. In this volume, Wishing and Making it So (a card trick for the telephone), Chicagoism, Thirty-Fiveism and Hacer lo Imposible (these three effects derived from the incredible creations of Eddie Joseph), three astonishing card divinations that aren't possible. The Cowboy Secret is a "hands-off" effect in which the spectator predicts his own selection. You won't believe that it's possible. The Zodiac Wheel is a pretty Zodiac display that predicts the spectator's selection; Elementary! is a Sherlock Holmes mystery, enacted on the stage and predicted in a newspaper headline. The format matches the previous books, with quality printing, binding and paper.
The sixth book in the series, featuring The Irresistible Force, a three-card trick, and Irresistible Shopping, a mental routine in which three items from a grocery store are correctly predicted. Deepest Sympathy is an "Impuzzible" version of the Sympathetic Card Trick. The Lost and the Found is a, hands-off card location based on the mysterious Tobba Mystery; A Study in Scarlet and Black is a Sherlock Holmes mystery, performed with a deck of cards over the telephone. Other routines, like Travel Expands the Mind, and Mystery in Abstract, are unique stand-up prediction effects using just pieces of cardboard with words or drawings. With eleven effects, all together, foil stamped cover, quality printing, 36 pages of text.
The seventh book, features Stairway to Heaven, the amazing book test which allows you to use any Bible as a forcing book. Also, Robert Ramirez’s Casting the Spell, an amazing Spelling routine, Four Card Monte (a classically Impuzzle interactive effect) and stand-up tricks the Awful words Trick, Fresh fish Now, and My Word! These are effect using purely cards with words, and carefully disguised mathematical principles. Pure Evil is an amazing hands-off effect in which the spectator freely chooses a number, and finds the card at that number; believe it or not, the spectator is forced a particular evil card in the deck. Eleven effects, and 32 pages of text.
Number eight, published in June 2020, features The Blunt Force, in which the spectator seems to predict your phone number, and the Excessive Force, a variation on the famous Nine Card Problem, in which the spectator perfectly arranges a packet of cards. In addition, The “I Forgot of Something,” is an incredible interactive trick, perfect for one person or a thousand people. The Instructions What Make it Work and The Poem What Reads Your Mind are two ingenious mental routines, arranged to read the thoughts of spectators with almost nothing at all (or, in the case of the poem, with absolutely nothing!) Eleven effects, 34 pages.
Number Nine, published in October 2020, features tricks that are suitable for live performances or virtual performances. Here you’ll find Red-Scarlet and French Dressing, two amazing, interactive variations on Oil and Water. Zeitgeist allows a number of people to simultaneously cast a spell for one person—perfectly tuned to a computer platform video show. Virtual Applause addresses the problem of applause on a virtual show, and turns it into a mind reading feat. The Enigma Process is an amazing word test that will, in the Impuzzibilities tradition, surprise you, amaze you, and then surprise your audience. All together, there are fourteen different effects, more than any other book in the series, plus a special introduction. 40 pages. Don’t miss these intriguing, inspiring effects.
Impuzzibilities 8 and 9 came out within months of each other, in response to the interest in special media performances and virtual shows. For a limited time, we are offering a special offer of these two books, from 2020. Twenty-five effects. Purchase them both from us, for a five dollar savings.

Sixty-five years ago, Guy Jarrett self-published his notorious book on stage magic, Jarrett Magic. In 1981, the new edition was written by Jim Steinmeyer...but that was only part of the story. The 2001 edition, The Complete Jarrett, is the complete story of the original, one-of-a-kind, go-to-hell genius of stage illusion, Guy Jarrett. Every page of his prized original book is reproduced in facsimile, with informative comments, and annotations, with hundreds of photos and drawings. It’s a post-graduate course in the art, and one of the best reads in magic. (Just ask anyone who’s ever read Jarrett!) With an introduction by John McKinven. 288 pages. Large 11 by 8 1/2 inch format, hardbound with foil stamped cover.
Real Magic, Kalin and Jinger’s outstanding magic show in Reno, Nevada, is drawing rave reviews. Their new souvenir program features photos of the show, background information, the history of famous magicians and their magic, and thirteen tricks for “do-it-yourself” wizards. Intended for the audiences at their shows, this full-color, 24-page program is a pleasure for any magic fan.
An amazing reconstruction of Charles Morritt’s mysterious illusions, Jim’s lecture notes are a careful analysis of his innovative “Morritt Mirror,” an unusual principle which became lost to the magic world. Here are the details behind his unusual career, his steps to creation, and the details behind the Disappearing Donkey (and Devant’s distinct changes to the effect). Illustrated with unusual historical photos, line drawings, and Morritt’s own sketches, this is a continuation of the ideas presented in Hiding the Elephant. It’s an amazing look at magic history and technology. Sixteen pages plus cover.
Republication of Jim’s famous paperback book of plans for three modern classics of illusion: Modern Art, the amazing new Sawing in Half effect, Hospitality (many drinks from a paper milk carton) and Shadow Theater, a new vanishing lady. Previously out of print, this new edition of Modern Art is a full color booklet with diagrams for all three effects, routines, and photographs.
These 2014 London Lecture Notes are two separate lectures sold together: The Molecules of Magic is a collection of favorite effects with cards, cue cards, a bottle, a glass of confetti. Included are The Vicissitude of Black Confetti, a transposition of white and black confetti (from the book, Device and Illusion) and A Case of Collusion, an amazing card prediction.

Also included: Too Dumb to Ask the Right Question is "a lecture on magic history for magicians who don't really care about magic history," a fascinating view of the personalities, problems and inspirations that we encounter looking back at magic. Told with personal insights, it's a tribute to the art of magic, as realized by a study of its past. These notes consist of the text of the full lecture, illustrated with color photographs. Two separate sets of notes (sold only as a set), 20 pages in each booklet.
