not new, but a classic...a must for any card man.

Anyone calls out any card. No force of any kind. You immediately hand them the deck and tell them to go through it and take out the selected card.
They do not find the card in the deck at all...you produce it from your pocket! (or wherever)
A squeaky-clean, no force, no sleight, no gimmick miracle!

No gimmick? No sleight? If there's no sleight then how can this be done at all? If there is no sleight there's gotta be some kinda gimmick right? Sounds great

Hey man! That's sure sounds good. No gimmick and no sleight.... do you mean Ed Marlo's Premonition or what? Where can I find it?

I told you guys it was a top effect...and it is!

The effect is by Eddie Joseph and can be found on numerous web site dealers...

Remember...no gimmicks...no sleights...works 100% every time...anyone names any card...no force of any kind...

This gets em every time!!

The description of PREMONITION is quite accurate. I might add that ordinary cards are used.
Eddie Joseph's PREMONITION came out in the 50s. It's original "inspiration" is Bill McCaffrey's THE PRIZE WINNER in Greater Magic. (The two tricks are virtually identical).
Since then several variations have appeared here & there. George Armstrong had a version, and more recently, Ted Lesley published his version in PARAMIRACLES.

The difference between the two effects was primarily in the presentation. Perhaps the last marketed variant on the theme to be marketed was Peter Duffie's "Vanished or Gone" effect (which also appears in his excellent and highly recommended book "Effortless Card Magic.)

In Nelson's "Still More Miracles in Mentalism" J. G. Thompson discusses the effects and suggests what he thinks are improvements and then another variant of his own, "The Little Man".

Mark Strivings also has a version, whose name escapes me at the moment. In it, the missing card is found in another deck of a different color. His presentational tips are also very good.

Every problem contains the seeds of its own solution. Unfortunately every problem also contains the seeds of an infinite number of non-solutions, so that first part really isn't super helpful.

I recommend the version called Pro-monition in Ted Lesley's "Paramiracles". If you are interested in mentalsm (even faintly) you must have Ted's book.

Mark Strivings' very strong version is called Challenge Name-A-Card, and can be found in several places (some of which are out of print):

Mental Melange lecture notes (1996)
To Pay The Price book (1997)
Psi Sampler lecture notes (2002)

Mark also sells the effect separately, with the necessary cards. He can be reached at [email]markyapril@aol.com[/email].

If you wan't to get hold of Mark Strivings Challenge Name-A-Card your best bet is to buy his book called "to Pay the Price".

Not only will you get various variations of this effect but in addition are variations of two other Commercial Effects "The Stealth Prediction" and "Any Card at any Open Prediction"

Does "Premonition" by Eddie Joseph use a card i***x?

MagicLee, No, Joseph’s Premonition does not use the item mentioned. It is far more subtle than that. Although you could put together a Premonition like effect using an i***x.

Premonition is such a good trick, I highly recommend anyone get the Eddie Joseph manuscript, put this together, it does use regular cards, then PM martini and ask what he is using for the closer. For those of you in the know he has cut it in half. That's about all I can say without giving it away, which I don't think we are allowed to do here?

If you want to see the basis of this effect look up "Greater Magic" by Hilliard p564 - it's called " The Prize Winner"

No, i don't really like it. There is way better ways to do this effect. I think this is a little impractical. It isn't that clean. Once, i got it i gave it away. I personaly wouldn't get it. Just my thought.

For an alternative approach I would recommend you get hold of Ted Lesley's Cabaret Mindreading Video there's a nice variation on there entitled Pro-monition.

It's Good

I used Premonition years ago and loved it. It was very well received. In fact, much of Eddie Joseph's material is great. I started buying all of his stuff while in high school and college. I used to buy his stuff from Abbott's. They carried the most complete line of all of his items.

hUrOn,good guess, but not even close! You will not carry 52 decks (or 10 dsecks or 5 decks or...)to perform Premonition.

It is much more subtle and clever than that.
