I just wanted to describe for you my new bizarre magick card effect, called "XPERT Vampire Hunter."

A participant selects and signs a card to represent her/him in the role of "vampire hunter."

To represent the vampire to be hunted, another card is signed on its back with an ankh, ancient symbol of the immortal; it is then lost within a packet of cards.

The participant insert her/his card face up into the packet anywhere she/he chooses: if she's/he's a successful vampire hunter, the vampire will be found just beneath her/his card. But when the cards are spread fairly, the vampire card is gone (it really is; she/he can look through them herself/himself)!

But before the vampire fled, he/she apparently left her/him with a parting gift: eternal unrest. Because when her/his signed card is turned over, inscribed on its back is the vampire symbol! This card is given to the participant as a truly bizarre souvenir.

Virtually sleight-free (no double lifts or palming), no specially printed cards, no swamis. Plus, it resets instantly for walkaround.

If you like this routine, you can get it and three more with The XPERT Device, a new tool that's received praise from these pros:

“X-traordinary!” Kenton Knepper
“I wish I’d thought of it!” Larry Becker
"[The Xpert is an] astounding accomplishment and will be embraced by magicians and mentalists. I love it!" Ben Harris

That is a GREAT sounding routine. Good spectator participation with a Great kicker ending that I'm assuming you can leave with the spectator as a souvenir.

Well done Brother Neil.

I'm looking to add this to my repertoire.

Not only CAN you leave the signed card with the participant, you SHOULD.

I think you'll get a lot of use out of it, Doug.
Take care,
Neil

Thanks for your order, kaytracy. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by how much more than a "fun little item" this is!

Drop me a line when you get it.

This is a wonderful thing. Neil Tobin is very clever and it shows with this xpert device not only that the routines are very cool in the manuscript that comes with it. Highly recommended, I have been using mine. Thanks Neil. Smile

I said it once and I'll say it again: Reed rocks.

Now then. To everybody with current XPERT orders at Hocus Pocus: I just sent a shipment to Hocus Pocus this morning, so you should be getting your orders very soon.

Enjoy it. And if you have any questions, feel free to PM me or drop me an email and I'll get back to you right away.

Thanks,
Neil

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FOR XPERT USERS: BONUS EFFECTS!

Tim Trono and I have both received considerable email regarding the best way to present coin bending using the XPERT device. (In the XPERT booklet, it is a nearly hidden routine, briefly described beneath the handling of "XPERT Out Of Body.") For your convenience, I have posted complete instructions (in Tim's own words -- thanks Tim!) on my website: necromancerevents.com

Also included is a clever presentation of "XPERT X-ed Card" by Jamie Badman, which is too timely to wait for inclusion in the XPERT book of submitted routines that I'm currently assembling. (Thanks for sending it in, Jamie!)

Thanks to everybody who has gotten the XPERT. And if you don't have it yet, I'd like to mention that your friend and mine, Doug Byrd, has it in stock at http://www.bizarremagick.com

Wow, time flies since the last posting!

It's been a full 10 years since the release of the Xpert. And FINALLY, I've completed filming an Xpert DVD.

I couldn't have done it myself (truth be told, I put it off for years), so huge thanks go to the helpful folks at Paper Crane Magic. If you've seen the high quality of their products, you already know how professional this production will be.

I have no idea how long the post-production and manufacturing process will take (everything worth waiting for takes time), but I was just too excited not to share this update with you! I'll keep you posted as I learn more.

Best,
Neil
P.S. If you want to have a laugh at all the excitement caused by the initial release a decade ago, you can still find all 12 pages of it here—
