|High Spots by Caleb Wiles|
Over SEVENTY PAGES OF DIABOLICAL NEW MAGIC. Rarely does thinking so fresh and so mature surface from a new name in magic. This is a collection of eleven completely flushed-out and considered card routines. It ranges from completely self-working to intermediate level, and even features "Reswindled," Caleb's version of "Reset" (regarded universally as the best version ever created). And Caleb's "Semi-Automatic Luck Test" is so deceptive and unexpectedly easy you'll use it right away.
"Reswindled" is worth the price of the book ALONE. Paul Harris says, "Caleb Wiles' Reswindled is my new favorite version of Re-Set." So the creator of the plot acknowledges this version as the best. Why? Because in addition to cards transposing, at the conclusion they change into the Aces. It's such a simple, logical addition! You'll learn all the details here.
This is exactly the kind of book we all grew up in magic loving, and they just aren't produced anymore. Short, sweet collections of clever and carefully constructed magic. Everything included is a showpiece worth learning, and there are so many little things built into each one that you can't help but marvel at the creativity. We had FUN reading this book, and that's why we're representing it here.

iDeck: A geeky but fooling card trick with a topical presentation.
Replicator: A topical presentation of color-changing deck that makes for a great follow-up to "iDeck."
