During the thirteen issues of MORTIMER’S MAGIC MAGAZINE, new routines, ideas, and patter were presented for the magician who wanted to learn new show material, perform at a magic meeting, or simply amaze friends without having to spend years practicing.
The MAGICIAN’S HOME COMPANION will follow the same purpose that made MORTIMER’S successful and popular with its readers. Emphasis will be on magic that can be done with a minimum of sleight and those will be the ones that most magicians know. Your props will be dusted off and used again once you see what else can be done with them. It will provide you with useful and practical information presented in an informal manner.
MAGICIAN’S HOME COMPANION has contributors who are willing to share their knowledge and secrets. Some names you may recognize in this first book are: Tony Baronio, Steve and Carol Bender, Ron Dayton, Paul Diamond, Steve Dusheck, John Fedko, Harry Franke, Dale Price, Jim Kleefeld, Marko (Spain), Martini, Richard Paddon (Australia, Bill Pryor, Dan Tong, and Larry White. Many other creative magicians have also contributed magic ideas, which you will want to use.
The MAGICIAN’S HOME COMPANION contains 120 pages of single spaced, two-sided, 8-1/2″ by 11″ pages filled with magic effects, patter, tips, presentations, and other information that will be of use to you. Included is an Index for fast and easy reference. This is a great book to add to your magical library.
