Slightly off topic I'm afraid, but if you love 'strange feeling', check out Christopher Dee's Anate...these two go together perfectly!!!!

Switchcraft is the download that keeps on giving. There have been numerous downloads for this wonderful ebook. The result is this great resource keeps getting better and better. I wish all authors would follow this model.

Another vote for yet another fine e-book by Tom Stone

"Prey of the Prestidigitator."

A combination of excellent material and production values. This book has as many illustrations as books 5 or 6 times it's size.

How could I list all the greatest downloads of this year?

The Jinx - maybe THIS is the greatest download of 2009 - in the best, and completely searchable PDF for only $15...for only $15, the BEST that has ever been published in mentalism and card magic.***Popular Card Tricks by Walter Gibson (the missing pages of the Jinx, and a great publication in its own right) being available in PDF for the first time.***

Chet,

Is the Jinx .pdf searchable different from the previously released Jinx CD version? I believe that the CD is also searchable. Is the .pdf version different and is it easier to use?

Thanks for the info.

Much easier, Mike. More easily (and quickly) searchable, and no infuriating password to remember (or have a hard time reading on the paper from Houdini Magic).

It also doesn't lose characters because of poor margins, or the Houdini copyright covering up text.

Thanks for that info, Chet.

So where does a person buy this .pdf Jinx file and how much is it? (I'm really glad to hear that this is different from the Houdini Magic CD version. Frankly, I could never get the hang of its alleged searchability function and, in frustration, I just gave up trying. I then fell back on my ol' dependable Tannens hardback version.)

Thanks for the info.

But if I tell you, Mike, I'd have to tell EVERYone!

Oh, all right! (sulk) Here 'tis:

http://www.lybrary.com/the-jinx-p-29013.html

$15. That's ridiculous for what may be the single best depository of GREAT magic and mentalism -- which is, by the way, HUGE. 907 pages! Yikes!

Yup, I have to agree with Chet and throw my nomination/vote behind The Jinx as well. So much history, so many things explained and, best of all, it's the closest thing to sitting down with Annemann and listening to him talk. I've been reading a little every day and I know I'll be re-reading it for years to come.

And Chet? Your review of "The MagiCIAn" sounded so good, I'm going to have to order that one, too.

I have bought several ebooks this year but my nomination has to go to Switchcraft. With several supplements each year, these are almost new ebooks in themselves. This is a wonderful work which just keeps growing.

You won't regret it, Mr Bean. You may end up admiring or hating Mulholland, but you'll definitely have your views of him challenged.
