Floor show conditions place demands upon the club performer that are difficult to meet. Their requirements are close-up, effective items with an expeditious finale. Time was when the Egg Bag, and Linking Rings, in capable hands, appeased the urge for real mystery, and like substitutes would be welcomed. The merit of any magical offering, be it new or otherwise (where have I heard this before?), lies in its appeal to an audience, rather than in its deceptive factors to fool the magician. However, it is my opinion that he is being fooled aplenty these prosperous times—yet to come. It is with this point in view that the contents of this, and the intended series to follow, will be selected for inclusion. It is my hope that among them you may find a feature trick.
