For those who receive his newsletter, you might know that he recently released his 2006 lecture notes as a free download to his newsletter subscribers. Although it looks like there is a link to the notes on his site so you might be able to download them even if you aren't a subscriber. Apparently these notes will be free until July 14th.

Anyway, the material is pretty good. It's certainly varied. Some effects are close up but a few are stage or parlour material. Out of the ten effects in the notes, only four are card effects. The rest use various objects and there is one coin effect:

Highlights are:

Shadowlands: A silhoutte effect where your hand grows two extra fingers.

Haven't tried it but I could see this playing really well.

Bit By Bit: A signature on the back of a card rises to the top of the deck a little bit at a time.

This is a clever alternative to the typical ambitous card routine. I might play around with this a bit.

Almost Human Cannon Ball: The spectator signs the wrapper of a drinking straw. The wrapper is wadded up and stuck into the end of the straw. The wadded wrapper is lit. It bursts into flames and appears in your other hand.

Cute restaurant effect. Typical simple and clear Sankey thinking.

Hypersensitive: The magician is able to divine the dates of three borrowed coins. This is a nice effect.

This was a free trick of the month a few months back in his newsletter. I didn't pay much attention to it then but upon re-reading it, it might be something to try.

Transfusion: A double backed card is examined and placed on the table. Two cards are selected and signed. The double backer is then split in half, revealing the two signed selections.

Okay, if I had paid for these notes, this would have been worth the price. This is a great effect. My favorite one in the notes. Then again, I love cards so it might not be everyone's cup of tea. It is slightly knacky but once you get it down, you should have a showstopper on your hands.

Chocolate Bar Prediction: A strong kid's show effect. The magician displays a candy bar that is wrapped in gift wrap. A clear bag filled with different candy wrappers is introduced and the birthday boy or girl is asked to reach in and grab one. The wrapper they grab winds up matching the candy bar in the gift wrap. You probably know how this one is done just reading the description. But it's a nice presentation.

Those were my personal favorites. All in all, some nice effects. A generous gift from Jay.

Jay has also advertised this in the July 06 issue of Magic. You can download it from http://www.sankeymagic.com for free until through July 31st.

I just read the manuscript. I like the effect "Transfusion." From what I read, it sounded like a reversal of Doc Eason's "Anniversary Waltz."

Another one that sounds great for restaraunts is "Diamond's in the rough."

The download was super lighting fast. Immaculate Deceptions is very well written in Jay Sankey's high energy style. I do like the effects "Transfusion," "Bit By Bit," and "The Chocolate Bar Prediction."

Have anyone seen Jay's The Art of Sleight-Of-Hand DVD out yet? This DVD includes Jay's classic "Locomotion" and "Private Property" 2 killer rountins.

His site is terrible; especially if you have a dial up connection at home. My computer is relatively new, but I still had to download new software and restart to even view the site. Then after waiting minutes for the site to load, it became almost impossible to download the notes. I actually gave up on getting something for free. If I was there to buy something, I imagine that I would have just gone elsewhere after a few minutes. I really like Jay’s magic, but IMO a site like that is a very bad business decision.

Yes, I agree that his site uses too much animation.
Although it flashy, it's not very user friendly.

Well, if you view his site on another computer with a faster connection, it is actually a wonderful website. I enjoy it.

As one might expect, Jay also advertised the free lecture notes in The Linking Ring as well.

the entire link is: http://www.sankeymagic.com/free notes

It is available free until 7/31/06. It is a PDF file, downloading is instantaneous...save it or print it as you see fit.

thank you Jay.

He says that he's including 2 bonus effects as an extra so there are actually twelve effects, not ten. But I haven't reveived them. Anyone else get the extra effects or is he emailing them separately?

I'm having trouble with it, too. I'm wondering if it has something to do with cookie blocking or level of security setting??? IN my case, whenever I hit the magic button, my computer wants to send an error message to Microsoft and then it closes down my Explorer.
