Interlaced Vanish is a card routine in which three cards, face down between the four face-up kings, vanish. It was created by Paul Harris and published in the first issue of Apocalypse Vol 1 No 1 (January, 1978)

It was also published in Las Vegas Close-Up (1978) and later in Art of Astonishment Book 1

It can be thought of as a reverse of Roy Walton's Collectors plot.
