Topic: Need Presentation Ideas

I have an effect I was experimenting with but can not come up with a good presentation for it. The effect is called Thought of Cards Across Plus by Gary Jones (It is in the December 2016 edition of Penguin Magic Monthly), but I feel that with a lot of these things such as Cards Across and Strange Travelers are very challenging to have a theme or present with. Any ideas would help, and thanks for sharing!

Ask yourself why would something travel from one location to another and you might just stumble on the premise for the trick.

I have answered a similar question of this type before here with a different trick so I will give the link and you can adapt the advice I gave accordingly:

For illustration purposes let say your demonstrating a new leap in futuristic travel which is only in it's infancy in terms of development but developed enough to demonstrate on a small scale using playing cards.

Thoughts travel?
emotions can travel from one to another
a bad mood can spread unseen....and a good attitude can change others
ideas travel
a good idea going from one to another

what about "the present self" "the past self" and the "future self"

This is a pretty good idea. Kind of like a protype experiment with cards. I'll try incorporating it into a trick :)
