Hey guys,

I have known Brandon for awhile now, although we have never met, we chat every now and then on mentalism.
Brandon recently sent me his very first offering to our mentalism community, titled "PHATHOM"

So what exactly is PHATHOM?

Phathom is a 60 page ebook which contains Brandons mentalism creations, most of them propless.

The FORWARD to the ebook was written by Colin McLeod.

You are then treated to an introduction by Brandon and whats to come.

The first effect is one that many of you probably either heard about or experienced over the phone or internet.

TELEGUESIA

This is a propless effect in which you have the participant think of several items, and at the end you reveal a very nice meal that they have prepared for themselves only in their mind.

This is great, and Brandon showed me this effect a few months back, and he nailed my meal dead on, over FACEBOOK.

This also works on STAGE, and closeup, so it is not limited to only the phone or net.

The second effect is called R.A.M

Similar to Rapid Eye Movement, in which Brandon guides his participant to think of images, sounds, smells to piece together into a specific memory, in which later on Brandon describes the memory with precision.

Again, the same line of thinking from the first effect is seen here, and you can then decide if you wish to use this effect only, or both, and you get to pick and choose which of the two suits you better.

I personally will use both, since one deals with memories, and the other with meals and food.....different effects for different ocassions.

The third effect is my favorite of the whole book, called LACUNA.

If you all ever saw Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind with Jim Carrey, well this effect has the same plot structure.

You cause a participant to think of someone, then you erase their memory and replace it with a new one.

I personally love this routine, and when I read it all I could see was Colin McLeod performing this routine.

The fourth effect is an extension on the first one, called TELEGUESIA 2.

Basically the same effect, but with a different outcome and premise, in which you ask a spec to think of some dining places, and at the end you not only tell them what meal they are eating(from first effect) but also what restaurant.

The fifth effect ic called Tea for Two, and is a telepathy experiment using 2 spectators, in which one spectator will try to divine what the other spectator has drawn.

Another great effect, that I had previously toyed with for a competition with Peter Turner, and definately worth a look, since this is similar to what Peter and I discussed but altogether different.

The last effect ocmbines a bit of mentalism and hypnosis, and is called Psycho Disphagia.

This is an effect in which you cause a spectator to not be able to swallow, and lots more is explained.

If you do hypnosis or have seen another prominent san diego performer use this technique you will know how its done, but Brandon adds lots of layers and thinking.

All in all this is a great ebook full of useful ideas, and subtleties, no matter if you do mentalism or hypnosis.

It will go on sale soon according to Brandon.

I will let Brandon chime in here.

Thanks

Hey guys,

Just a bit more information on PHATHOM... This is not a limited release, however the E-book will be limited to only 30 copies for the pre-sale price. After the 30 E-books are gone, PHATHOM will be available in a physical book.

This will be available by next week. (Just waiting for the editors).

Thanks Alex for the review!

Just to clarify a couple things in a bit more detail;

R.A.M. is a drawing duplication based around memories. A person thinks of a memory and adds specific details only in their mind, then thinks of an image associated with their memory. The memory is then revealed in detail and the performer duplicates the image they only thought of in their head. The only props needed are something to write on, and something to write with or can be performed propless.

Teleguesia is simple and propless. Have a person take a mental journey into a grocery store. They buy a few food items, then cook a meal with the ingredients and of course you reveal detail by detail exactly what they prepared, including dessert.

If anyone has any questions feel free to P.M. me. Thanks!

I watched Brandon perform some of these effects tonight...they are really strong and I was really impressed!

He was able to reveal things that he couldn't possibly know and was able to do things that aren't really possible!

It was truly amazing to watch him work...I can't wait to read this.
remember....always use your powers for good!

I was lucky enough to receive an early copy of Brandon Queen's "PHATHOM" for peer review several months ago and have to say that it's a gold mine of valuable information, strong propless mentalism and active working routines from one of the fields most talented and fastest rising stars.

I've known Brandon for a number of years now and have seen him perform every single piece taught in his new book, and this, with devastating results.

Will post more later..."PHATHOM" is a phenomenal first offering from BQ and I can only hope that he continues to share more of his work with the community.

Congrats, B!

BTW, I know Brandon isn't including it in this project, but he showed me a Zodiac divination last night that was one of the most unique pieces I've ever seen...I watched him do it twice and it was truly incredible both times.

I don't think there is any Zodiac effect using this method.
remember....always use your powers for good!

Hey eric6,

Although I'm not necessarily taking pre-orders, many people have already gone ahead and reserved their copy in advance. They are going much faster than I anticipated, however If you would like to reserve a copy now to assure you recieve the sale price, feel free to jump on board. Again just to clarify, the first 30 copies are discounted and the price will go up after these are gone. The e-book should be ready by the end of next week.

The pre-sale price for the e-book is just $35 and my paypal is: paypalusa@brandonqueen.com

Any other questions feel free to ask or P.M. me.

If you buy the pre sale price, do you get just the ebook, or do you also get a hardcover book?

The "pre-sale" not "pre-order" price is ONLY for the E-book. The physical book has no specific release date. There is a chance a physical book may never get made. It depends on so many things. However my intention is to release a physical copy eventually. Hope that clarifies a few things.

According to my editor It's just about finished and I'm looking to have it by Sunday!

There are only 10 available copies at the pre-sale price and I'm expecting them to be gone by the end of this week. I'm still debating whether or not I am going to release a physical copy. It all depends on how many people are interested in a physical book.

After the remaining pre-sale e-books are gone, I will no longer be personally accepting orders. The book will be available through a website (which I will announce as soon as it's set up) which will prompt for automatic download upon purchase.

Any questions please feel free to E-mail me at contact@brandonqueen.com or PM me on here. Thanks!

Brandon Queens Phathom is finally released,having quickly skimmed through the material I was simply blown away.

This is the stuff legends are made of. BMW Guy has already described each of the effects above so I wont go into too much detail, but what I will say is you can tell B.Q is passionate about this material he goes into so much detail in each effect making sure the reader gets this right. He tells you the right way and the wrong way of doing it.

There are spinkles of gold dust through out this book.
Proper credits are given at the end.

My two favorites so far are Tea for two and Lacuna.

Lacuna is simply awesome that's the effect where you erase the victims memory and replace it with a new one.

All in all a brilliant e book. Good luck with this Brandon, but I'm sure you wont need it once the word get,s out.

Thanks to everyone who has purchased PHATHOM! I look forward to all of your thoughts on the material. More importantly would love to hear your experiences with performing the routines.

I have ONE left for the sale price. After that the price jumps up. Goes to the first person who contacts me.

As far as the physical book goes, I'm not entirely sure it's going to happen as I've decided NOT to go through lulu. I am going to explore my options further, and it also depends on how many people would be interested in a physical copy.

I will keep those interested up to date on the progress. Thanks!
