Rarely does card magic come along as strikingly original as that found in this book.

By Forces Unseen (Stephen Minch)

Its creator, Earnest Earick, has refrained from publishing his groundbreaking material for years – until now. When you flip through the pages of “By Forces Unseen” you will encounter chosen cards that fly from the deck when you clap your hands, cards that materialize at your fingertips when someone concentrates on them, selections that pop from the middle of the pack with the flip of your wrist Hermetic Press Average Rating: By Forces Unseen, written by Stephen Minch and published by Hermetic Press inis one of the finest collections of sleight-of-hand material with cards.

It features the unique – and very difficult – magic of technical monster Ernest Earick.


Throughout the book’s pages, you will find twenty Earick effects, and tons of innovative new card moves. Earick’s variations of these moves are considered by many the very best variants of the classic sleights.

What really impresses me about most of the moves in this wonderful tome is their extreme versatility. Almost all of these moves, with enough practice, will become favorites of yours and can be used in many situations. It is not easy, but is a wonderful card control.

The performer sets the pack on the table, claps his hands, and the first selection? He claps his hands again, and the second selection pops, face-up, out of the pack. The performer then proceeds to pluck the third selection out unesen mid-air! This wonderful effect is the perfect example of Mr. Earick’s creativity and thorough thought process.

Another brilliant item is the knseen Jack Syna ps ces. The performer tosses the four Aces to the table, and then openly reverses the Jacks, which are scattered throughout the pack.

Rarick performer then picks up the Aces, and with a slap, they visually change to the Jacks. The pack is spread and the four Aces are seen to be dispersed throughout the pack, face-up.

While this is, by no means, easy to accomplish, the extremely visual aspect of it and the utterly impossible circumstances under which this miracle occurs makes all the practice worth it.

First, Stephen Minch is an absolutely superb writer, and his attention to ernfst most infinitesimal details is exactly what is needed when describing sleight-of-hand. Third, the crediting in this book is outstanding. Every move and inspiration is credited; down to ernext page number and year the particular book was published.

Overall, this is definitely one of my most beloved books on magic. The difficulty of most of the material keeps it exciting, and after conquering a move or routine, you really feel that all your time spent practicing was worth it.
