Introductions by Daniel Cros and Paul Harris
Escape From the Inner Circle (Looy Simonoff): An essay of appreciation
The Vacuum Cleaner Card Case: Card selected, "vacuum cleaner" (card case) used to reveal it, card case sticks to the top of the deck, when pried off found to be holding selection.
Electric Aces: Paul says, "...the best in four aces effects that combine the invisible palm, cards across, and elevator aces into a stunningly direct close-up extravaganza. The no-moves penetration of the final ace through the spectator's hand will make your close-up mat proud to be associated with you."
Panic At the Poker Table (Allan Ackerman): Two Sevens and two Eights shown, change to three Sevens and two Eights, then to four Eights, finally change to four Aces.
Shuffle Time: Three cards removed from the pack, used to give the time of day (6:58, for example), time of day turns out to be wrong, magician changes to three cards that show the correct time.
Tayari's Camouflage: developed with Tayari Casel, card shown with metallic gold coating on one side, metallic silver on other, coin covered with matching material produced from gold side, vanishes back into it, coin covered with silver material produced from other side, covered with card, held with spectator's finger, coin changes to silver dollar.

The Incredible Shrinking Hand: Magician's hand (not the hand of cards, but real hand) seems to visibly shrink when an attempt to palm a card is made.
Thumb-Break: Spectator selects a card, magician sticks a thumb into the deck to explain "thumb-break", thumb visibly flattened across face of selection, magician re-inflates thumb, the spectator places a hand over card and cards below it, the magician makes a card disappear and reappear in the pocket.
The Bizarre Vanish: Playing card sandwiched between two others grasped spectator, visibly vanishes.
A Very Strange Exchange: Paul says, "A card and a coin change places in a most startling fashion."
Heart Burn: Magician rubs index corner of the card to warm it, then strikes it on a matchbook causing it to ignite.
Mickey Mouse Math: Magician locates chosen card in the following manner: starting with a Nine, the magician splits it into a Two and a Seven, the Two is subtracted from the Seven leaving a Five, the Five is split into an Ace and a Four, the Ace is subtracted leaving a Three, which is the selected card.
The Beast With Two Backs (Paul & Looy): Prediction card matches spectator's, two cards then placed face to face, melt together forming double-backed card.
Close Quarters (Daryl): Two quarters held in the magician's hand transform into a single half dollar.
The Second Middle Bottom: Magician demonstrates a false deal that allows cheating from the second, middle, and bottom cards at same time, magician deals Ace of Spades, Ace of Clubs, another Ace of Spades, another Ace of Clubs, and a final Ace of Spades, hand picked up to show Royal Flush instead.
The Bill Collector: Selected card penetrates hundred dollar bill and rises out of the deck at the same time.
Just Call Me Mr. Wonderful: A flourish which allows the magician to open card case, remove deck, fan it ... all with only one hand.
Hit Me Again: Performer deals two Jacks, then third Jack, third Jack changes to Ace.
Guts: Signed selected card visibly changes to another, the wallet can be removed from magician's pocket by the spectator, hands can be shown empty as magician opens wallet and removes signed card.
