"Why, you are like a magician!"
These are the words
spoken to Sherlock Holmes after solving another seemingly unsolvable
crime. Tales of the master sleuth have intrigued audiences for decades.
Although Holmes never admitted to having magical powers, his ability to
solve crimes bordered on the supernatural.
When asked to explain how he was able to solve what seemed to be
unsolvable cases he made the comparison of his methods to that a
magician when he stated, "You know that a conjurer gets no credit when
once he has explained his trick; and if I show you too much of my method
in working, you will come to the conclusion that I am a very ordinary
individual after all."
Holmes' ability to solve crimes is much like that of the magician in his
ability to work magic. The magic is rather simple, but the effects are
astounding. Now you can combine the thrill and excitement of magic with
the mystery and suspense of a spine tingling Sherlock Holmes novel. The
stories of Sherlock Holmes have inspired this collection of magical
effects designed to baffle your friends, entertain your audience, and
stimulate their imaginations. You will be able to thrill and delight
your audiences in a way unlike other magicians.
The effects in this book are all connected to the legend of Sherlock
Holmes and his uncanny ability to solve what seemed to be the most
difficult cases. Unlike Holmes, you will be able to solve the crimes by
the use of magic.
Most of the tricks use simple props you may have around the house,
although you may wish to use props that have certain "Holmes Flair" to
give it more of a magical feeling. If you enjoy magic, you'll find some
interesting twists on some old tricks as well as a few new ideas. All of
the tricks are simple enough for an amateur, yet clever enough for the
most experienced magician.
But beware -- this collection of magic tricks is not recommended for the
faint of heart. These tricks are guaranteed to amaze, amuse, enlighten,
and dumbfound your audience. Everyone will be in total shock when you
magically solve each crime.
As Holmes might have said, "Abracadabra, my dear Watson. The magic show
"The Sherlock Holmes Book of Magic can give the serious performer (and
reader) a number of options as to how to present effects in a themed
avenue! The $10 price tag is way too low for a book with this much to
offer... [It] should be on every performer's book shelf!"
--Tom Carven, professional magician
"Solid material...This is an excellent way, at a bargain price, for a
newcomer to learn and to present good magic... Highest recommendation."
--The Linking Ring
