Spell-binder was published for three years (36 issues) by Stephen Tucker and included the best close-up magic of that time. Collaborators included: Stephen himself with over 100 routines, David Britland, Peter Duffie, Wayne Dobson, Max Maven, Joe Digman and many more.
HAMMAN OUT-SEXED (Alex East): A 'sexy' version of the classic Hamman's 'Two-Card Trick' that uses, of course, only two cards!
WOW (Tim Gan): The Ace of the same suit of a selected card turns over and then it changes place with the selection!
WEIRD (Stephen Tucker): A great comedy mentalism effect where you predict how many fingers a spectator selects by revealing....plastic fingers in a box!
TWISTED NERVE (Al Smith): An extended version of the classic Vernon's 'Twisting The Aces' where a lot of magic happens!
THE BACK IS GONE (David Robertson): A unique entertaining way of revealing a selected card!
A SIMPLE REVERSE (Harvey Rosenthal): A selected card appears reversed in the middle of the deck. An easy sleight that you will use for many other effects!
DYNAMIC DUO (Basil Horwitz): A splendid 5-coincidence effect with a regular deck of ESP cards!
T OF C (Basil Horwitz): A prediction results to be correct. You'll like the clever method used here!
CRACKER (Paul Brignall): A stunning routine. You remove the Aces from a red-backed deck. Suddenly the deck changes to blue backs. Then the Aces appear face up in the middle of the deck. The four cards believed to be Aces are now blank-faced and the Aces have now different colored backs!
TERROR (Al Smith): A card freely selected from a face-up red-backed deck proves to be the only blue-backed card among the reds. As a kicker, the duplicate red-backed card turns face up in the deck!
